Our journey through infertility, failed adoptions and now parenthood through the miracle of embryo adoption/donation.

You should see the other guy!

This week started out fine but by Wednesday everything changed. Maddie did not sleep well at all on Tuesday night. She was up every 2 hours and I was exhausted! All day Wednesday she was crabby and had a low grade fever. Nothing to worry about, it was just a bit frustrating. Her nose was running too but it was clear so no biggie there either. Wednesday night was much the same....sleepless. And then came Thursday morning. Maddie woke up with a really yucky nose, green goopy eye, and a fever of 100.6. My baby was sick and not happy about it! I called the doc and made her an appointment for that afternoon. She has an infection in both eyes and an ear infection. She also has a cold and we were to watch in case it got worse since RSV is so prevalent right now. By Friday her eyes were swollen and crusted closed, looking much like Rocky, and she was hoarse. It was a miserable sound!!!

I am happy to report that now she is on the mend though and doing much better. She is now her happy, squealing self again!!

In other news, I have a prayer request for everyone. My niece's mom was in a horrible car accident this past Wednesday and is not doing very well. Frankly, they are surprised that she is even alive right now. She was not wearing her seat belt and she extensive facial damage, missing most of her teeth, spinal fractures, broken ribs, deep lacerations and her hip is out of place. On top of it all they discovered that she is 10 weeks pregnant as well and no one knows how the baby is doing at this time.

If she survives she will require many months of physical therapy and will be in the hospital for quite some time. At this time my niece (8 years old) has not been told. She lives with her father (my brother) and does not see her mom very often so she is not missing her yet. This woman has not been a very good mother to my niece and I pray that not only does she recover but that this will be life changing and she will become the mother that my niece so desires. If you could join me in prayer for this young woman it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!


  1. I'm glad your sweet girl is doing better. Thoughts and prayers said...

  2. It is so hard when our babies get sick. I have cried many times when my little girl gets sick and I can't do anything about it fast enough. I'm glad she is starting to feel better now.

    Definitely sending prayers.

  3. Poor thing...she looks like I've felt for the past few days. Glad she's feeling better!

  4. Glad Maddie is doing better! Praying for your niece's mom- that sounds terrible!


I love comments! They make me feel important.
