Show my 8yr old step-son some love please
My step-son recently started running a high fever late Saturday night after we dropped him off at his dad's after we took him to a monster truck show. His dad took care of him but his fever kept coming and going. Yesterday morning it spiked to 103, but we got it to break again. We thought it was a 3 day deal, like one of our friend's son recently went through, and he would be ok. The signs were leading to that until late this morning when his fever spiked again. My wife took him, Breyden, to his doctor. They checked him out and sent them to the childrens hospital north of us for a CAT scan because they were concerned he might have a bacterial infection behind his eye. They got everything done, which was scary enough for him, and found that he does have an infection behind his right eye. The infection has been causing him pain and the fevers. The scary part of it for him and us is that they said that the infection is surrounding the side of his eye, but if it was behind or moves behind he could have/could lose his eye. He is on an oral antibiotic medicine now that they say works 80% of the time. He has a follow-up tomorrow and if things aren't taking effect than he will have to go in for shots everyday for at least 5 days. The whole thing is freaking the little guy out, which is tough to see him go through!
What I am asking from the ORG family is to post up little something to him hear and maybe some cool pics of your trucks, since he loves Power Strokes and always looks over my shoulder when I'm on the ORG and he sees a cool truck and says "coool truck! Who's is that?!?!"
I think it would mean a lot to him, and I know us, if you all give show him some positive thoughts and some cool PSDs to look at while he goes through this.

I'm guessing that you didn't lose nearly as much as it appeared. Spills are like that. The last beer that I spilled was like a million ounces.
