Give Thanks With A Grateful Heart

As Thanksgiving is quickly approaching it reminds me of all "my" thanksgivings over the last year! Our family has been truly blessed this year! Hannah turned 3 in February and started Preschool in August. As this was quite an adjustment for me as our "baby girl" overnight turned into a "big girl"! She is our little miracle and we are thankful every day that she is in our lives! She makes us happy, she makes us smile, she makes our hearts full of joy!! I am blessed with a loving , caring husband who is the love of my life and my sole mate! I am thankful that Hannah has such a wonderful daddy that loves her with all his heart! In her eyes he is her hero, her comfort, her buddy! I am thankful that right now in her life she thinks of me, and calls me her "bestie"!! Hopefully it stays that way!! :) I am thankful for our family, all our joy, all our happiness, all our blessings! Our Family And Our Friends Mean The World To Us And For That I Am Also Thankful!!

Happy Thanksgiving and Give Thanks With A Grateful Heart!!

Hospital Visit

We have had a super crazy week around here! We started off Sunday morning picking Hannah up from Grammy & Grandaddy's house after she had been up most of the night not feeling well. She started off with a cough and low grade fever, so I was not that concerned...Allergies Again!?! After we had been home a while she was feeling much worse and was starting to wheeze quite a bit. We decided to go ahead and take her to the urgent care center to get her checked out. They gave her a breathing treatment then sent us to the hospital to get chest x-rays, then back to the urgent care to get the x-rays read. They said she had bronchitis and gave us antibiotic and liquid albuterol. We got home and gave Hannah her medicine. She barely got it down before she got sick everywhere, so I was thinking maybe she had too much drainage and her stomach was upset. We waited about an hour and tried the albuterol again...same result! Yuck, Yikes, This really sucks! I called her pediatrician and they told us to take her to Kosair's. Got to the hospital 8:30pm on Sunday ~ They called us back around 10:30pm (who knows what we were exposed to in the waiting was packed!!) ~ Decided to admit her around 2am and we finally got up to a room around 4am! What a long, long night!! She had to be on a constant breathing treatment from 2am until 8am then switched her over to every 2 hrs, then monday afternoon every 4 hrs. She had to be on oxygen most of the time. They told us we were going home Tue morning then Hannah had a nap and her oxygen dropped to 82% so they said we had to stay another 24hrs until she could go at least 12 hrs with oxygen above 90% while sleeping. We finally got to come home Wednesday around 12:30pm! Yay! Finally!
They decided she had "respiratory episode" (A Typical Pneumonia and slight Asthma). This is the first "episode" she has had so the Asthma thing is freaking me out! We are going to follow-up with her pediatrician on Saturday and hopefully get some more answers. They told us at the hospital that their Asthma cases have went up 30% over the last 2 months and they have seen several of those children back within 2 weeks! I pray that is not us! I have been scared, nervous, angry, totally stressed...just about every emotion the last several days! Please keep all of us in your prayers, especially Hannah. Its so hard to see your baby like that and you can't do anything to help them except pray. I am thankful for all my family and friends, everyone has been so supportive! We are blessed to have so many people who love us! I will keep you posted!
