Had a great time, didn't end well though...

Postby TheFishGuy » Mon Nov 21, 2011 7:57 am

The weekend was great, had a lot of fun. Came home with six baby half dollar sized orange discus @ $14 each, three large nicaraguense (one boy two girls)$20 for the trio, an 8" male JD for $1 and a whole gaggle of 1" rainbow cichlids dirt cheap.

My weekend did not end as planned though... I wanted to wake up without the noise of an alarm clock, go for a swim, take a shower, pack up and go. As it were I got a call from my wife around midnight that our youngest son was having trouble breathing. By the time I got packed up, loaded, checked out, drove home and unpacked the fish it was 4:30 am. Had to get up two hours later to start getting the other kids off to school... My truck is still not unloaded... I only brought the fish in last nite...

Maxwell is doing just fine aside from being extremely tired like his Mother and I, but if you could please keep him in your prayers we would much appreciate it. He's a tough little kid and I'm confident he'll be just fine. Thanks, TFG :)

ps, the discus are still alive after getting un bagged, bagged and unbagged all over again...

Thanks guys, as it turns out he's got an upper respiritory infection. The crazy thing is for some reason my wife Lora thought she'd check on him before going to bed last nite and that's when she discovered is intense labored breathing. Thank God for a mothers intuition...

I hope you have a long, boring, uneventful few weeks, sounds like you need it.
Glad the little guy is ok..
