I know it has been a long time since I have last written a blog, and for that I am sorry. We have been super busy at our house preparing for a little surprise that I will announce at a later date. My daughter has also been pretty ill lately. She had what started out as a small infection on her leg and ended up having to have surgery and has now been in the hospital for almost 4 days because she cannot keep anything down. My mom has been such a huge help during this time. She is sitting here now while I type on the computer (don’t worry mom I am listening to my homework video) and do my homework/blog.
My husband has been working crazy hours lately, our son’s birthday is coming up, we celebrated our anniversary, planning for our vacation, my father-in-law is getting worse, and it just seems like everything is falling apart. You want to know how I keep pushing through it all? I look at my children. That’s my why. They are why I do so much and try to make everything perfect for them. Yeah my kids may not remember their birthday parties where we had real live princesses there or how this toy story party is going to be a big one, but that’s what I like to do. I like to see my kids happy. Having Marlene in the hospital right now has been killing me. I hate seeing my baby so sick and not being able to do anything for her anymore. It started off that she was just in so much pain, and now has turned into something so much worse. They have her on iv fluids but she isn’t having many wet diapers. Plus, when they try to feed her, she can’t keep it down at all.
My family has been a true blessing through all of this. My dad is watching my son as we speak, my mom is watching Marlene so I can type, and tomorrow their Uncle is going to watch Liam if we have to stay the night again. BEST PART COMING UP. The girl’s mom let us facetime the children while we are in the hospital. It meant a lot to me. It truly did, because for once Marlene was actually happy and smiling to see her sisters. I was shocked but even more so thankful. It meant a lot to see Marlene happy and smiling to see her sisters. It was a breath of fresh air after nights of her being miserable. Maybe this is a stepping stone for us. I hope so!!! (:
Thank you to everyone who is on my Instagram and Facebook that has been praying for my family lately. It truly means a lot. Hopefully we can go home tonight and if not today then tomorrow. I will indeed keep everyone updated on Facebook and Instagram as well. remember to never hesitate to message me!
Love and peace always,
