Guess Where We Are?

It sure isn't the Hilton!

All is well, now that I finally got her to go to sleep. Poor thing. She has the hardest time falling asleep in the hospital. She kept saying "I'm not sweepy." "Can I home home now?" "Can I sit in the chair with you Mama?" "Can I play a game." Over and over until she was utterly exhausted, then it just became, "mom, mommy, mama, mommy, mom," until she FINALLY gave in and fell asleep.

It's just the usual. Started as a simple cold, and progressed throughout the day, until she was needing treatments about every 2-3 hours, and I could tell she was having trouble breathing. Then we packed it up and headed to the doctor, who then sent us to the ER. She just has a hard time keeping her oxygen saturation up when she gets sick. She doesn't seem really bad to me, so let's all hope that this ends as quickly as it began. I just can't do a repeat of last time.

These are some of Holland's very first attempts at photography...

Oh no!!! I just saw a Target commercial today with the song Hello Goodbye and it made me think of that post you wrote earlier this year. Now to read this - weird!

Lots of prayers that Holland recovers quickly and that Eden stays healthy.

Feel better, Holland! We also hope this is not a repeat of your last hospitalization experience and that you guys are home soon and that Eden proves immune to the crud that's attacked Holland. Meanwhile, great photos, Holland---keep up the artistry!

oh, no! The cold and flu season has begun. I hope Holland is feeling better soon. It's tough having one at home and one in the hospital. Hopefully it's just a "quick visit"

Awww, the "last time" story had me in tears. Billie and John- you are my heroes!! How is Eden right now? Praying for Holland to get well and for Eden to stay out of the hospital.

Billie said...

Eden is great! So far, no signs of sickness. Wouldn't it be great if we can keep it that way?

She is staying with my mom, last night and tonight. My mom says that she is being little miss chatty. I HATE not seeing her for an entire day. Makes me feel so sad.

Aw, I am so sorry. May I say, Billie, that you seem to make even a hospital room fun for your girls?

Shay said...

Oh Billie! I am so sorry to hear this! You are in our thoughts and prayers.

I hope the stay is a short one and Holland will keep her sats up soon! I think we need to get all of our kiddos together in one big room and give them a BIG lecture on how NOT TO GET SICK and have their SATS DROP!!! Hang in there....we're all praying for you guys!

So sorry to hear that you are there. We will all be hoping for a quick and quiet stay. You and John hang in there and I'll try and send Dave with treats (he'll be there tomorrow). Here's hoping your home by the time Dave gets there!
