I hope this week is better than last....

So much has gone on this past week. Let me tell you what's been happening. On Monday I started to notice that Madasin was getting a cough, funny how she would only get it at night when she had to go to bed. I fighured it was a fake, she was staling. So i told her after school tomorrow i would take her in if she still wasn't feeling good. Sure enough she was sick. Bronchitis! Which is not fun. She had planned a Cup Cke Valentine's party for some of her girl friends. So she was really looking forward to getting better.

Here are the cup cake girl's.


McKinlee Love's cup cakes.

Also on friday was Madasin's school Valentine's party.So McKinlee and I got some yummy treats and headed to Maddie's class, McKinlee had a Blast!

She figured she could eat whatever she could find.

We also got to see our good friends The Dannels. Our kids spent lots of time together, which was well over due. We love visiting with them. I love this one picture McKinlee is checking out Hudson and I mean CHECKING HIM OUT! and he's just fine with it. lol Miss you guys.

Saturday night rolls around and McKinlee is up every 15 to 25 minutes. I knew something was wrong, so I took her to the ER around 6am. Poor thing has an ear infection and a Viral Respiratory Illness and needs to be given breathing treatments every 3-4 hours.here is a before the hospital

And after..

She's still not alll the way back to normal but were getting there.

So since sunday morning after the er i have had been going on 4 hours of sleep. That night we had just gotten home from my in laws. And all of a sudden Justin was hunched over in the bathroom with pain he had never felt before. As soon as I knew it I was back in the ER, we arrived there around 9:30pm and finally got home around 4:15am. My poor husband was in so much pain, I have never seen him like that. Come to find out it was kidney stones. They still haven't passed but at least he has some meds.

This is my calling in life to be the rock of my family. To take care of things, make my children feel better. Take care of my husband on 4 hours of sleep. It's hard! But i wouldn't trade any of it. They mean the world to me.
