Today has been a really special day. Hannah Parker got to stay home with Mommy today...this has never happened before!! I know, hard to believe, but it's true. I have kept Houston home for a "special" day and poor Hollise had a "special" week bc she was sick...so over the last two years either Hannah has been well and in daycare or home with Hollise or Houston sick.
I wish I could just bottle the smile that was on her face this morning when she realized she was staying home with me. And I let her just enjoy her time with me...as I did her. We baked brownies for the Montforts, made sugar cookies with blue icing (picked out by Hannah), she ate whatever she wanted all day, and nearly past out at 4 this afternoon from being wore out. I hope she enjoyed herself today bc I sure did!!! Each of our children are SO different in their own way and I wish you all could feel the love from my children. Many times today Hannah would tackle me with a great big hug and look at me and say, "I love you Mommy"....oh, I just wish you could feel what happens in my heart. I want to laugh and cry all at the same time. I hope they don't ever loose this way they have with showing their feelings.
Also, we had a bit more excitement today. We got a new o2 monitor for Drew. And this one is portable...Whoo Hoo! After the girl tried numerous times to find a good place to get a reading on Drew she expressed her appreciation and understanding of my frustrations and understood why I wanted a new monitor!!!
Thursday we'll go to an Ear, Nose, and Throat dr with Drew. This is a regular follow up since he was on the Oscillator and a Ventilator. I'm sure we won't have any trouble...but who knows the way things are going. Please keep this appointment in mind when praying for Drew.
We have a follow up appt Friday with Dr. Ruff and again the Pulmonary appt is April 10.
Please continue to pray and again...we really feel your prayers! I was so tickled to get a comment from Mrs. Linda and Mr. Ed, I LOVE THEM!!! Who doesn't!? Anyone can leave us a comment by choosing to leave an "anonymous" comment and of course you can type in your name during your message. I didn't realize how many people reading this now. It really means so much for people to care so much for our family.
Budget girls, love and miss you!!!
