A scary week...

Just when I thought I was starting to get things under control and organized again, my world was rocked when literally a few hours after my last post about my son's 5th birthday my sweet little one year old, Taylor woke up from her nap early, and was struggling to breath. It was more of a grunt with every breath, so I called Telehealth. I knew she was getting enough air because I saw no signs of blueish lips; however, I was still really worried! They dispatched an ambulance immediately for her, and that is when I started to get really worried! What if something was really wrong??? What could it be?!! Luckily my best friend brought Macdonalds for the daycare, and stayed to watch the kiddos, while I made the trip to the hospital. The doctors and nurses were great with her. She had so many tests, and things done to her, she was truly a little trooper.

I have a picture of her on my phone, but I can't seem to figure out how to get it off!.... hmmm...
We got admitted to the hospital, and Taylor was hooked up to all sorts of machines to monitor her. My husband returned with my overnight things and my camera, and Taylor and I stayed and endured three days, two nights of delicious hospital food (yay right!)... her favorite show- Hi Five, over and over again... and yes many, many, many books!! She perked up by the next morning, but was still on her IV until we left. She was diagnosed with a respiratory virus, that seemed to hit her very hard. Here is a photo of Taylor (she was actually MUCH better here than after she arrived at the hospital... this was taken about 5 hours after she arrived):

And here is her feeling better on the last day:


Okay, let me share a scrappy project that I created that I have place in my bedroom to remind me of how lucky I am to have my three kiddos:

The worst thing, is I missed my son's 5th birthday :(.... My dad and stepmom did a great job at making him feel special though (thanks guys!)....

I finally made it into my scraproom tonight, so I am going to have some things to share soon... I hope the turmoil in my life has subsided... and no more hospital visits!! (twice in one week was not fun!)
