Get Fit with Wii Fit with New Game! Get Ready to Dance!

OK, so I have absolutely nothing to post about. It is obvious that between Owee & Honey Nut getting sick, being exhausted from no real sleep for several nights and my running out of Zoloft there was no time or energy for working out. Those two babies are still fairly sick. They both have...

Happy to Be Home? Maybe. Full of Anxiety? Sure.

We are so grateful to everyone who has been praying for Owain and for all of your wonderful words of encouragement and support. *I was just getting ready to read over this post and check for random errors when Honey Nut woke up coughing, gagging and pulling for air. Fabulous. I spent about 20...

Owee Had an Amazing Turnaround Last Night!

Your prayers have been heard! Owain was having a difficult time yesterday, but everything started going really bad after his 3pm Xopenex treatement. Instead of helping his breathing, it made it worse. So we stopped giving it to him. He has had Xopenex before, so I don’t know why he had such a bad...

Things Are Not Looking Good for Owain

And I am getting frustrated. Last night the ER doc thought he had an ear infection, but the doctor on call came in and said no ear infection. His pediatrician came in this morning and said that at least one ear was infected and the other one was red and swollen. That explains the...

Sitting in the ER with Owain

Sitting in the ER, again, wishing we weren’t here. The nurses are getting to know us. I recognize them, they recognize us. One of Owain’s ER nurses from last month told me she thinks about him often and has added him to her prayer list. So.Darn.Sweet. One of his nurses tonight was up working...

Out of the Mouths of Babes

Last week I mentioned that my sweet baby girl is fond of the F-bomb. Would it be wrong to say that I giggle when she does it? It is not a word that she is going to hear around our house or anywhere we go. Last week I didn’t think that it had any...

A Song for Struggling Families

For all the Heart Families Who are Forced to be Strong When it Would be so Much Easier to be Weak This song always brings up memories of when Owain was born. Without fail, I would hear this song every single day, either on the way into to visit him at UVa or on...

Out of the Mouths of Babes

My children live to embarrass me. I am convinced of it. Little do they know after giving birth to 5 kids, showing off my girlie parts of a room full of strangers on 5 different occasions, there is little that they can do to embarrass me. They are working hard at it though. Wee...
