Sorry for the delay everyone.

But I spent my entire Friday at the hospital with this tuckered out little one.

(Yes, she sleeps with her eyes half open…creepy right?!)

A seizure on Thursday night (she has “a very complex case” of epilepsy) had us calling 911 (again) and when the local emergency room couldn’t control her seizures after three hours of seizing off and on, we were finally transferrred (via another ambulance) at 3:00 am to a Pediatric ICU over an hour away.

To say I was exhausted wouldn’t come close to describing how I felt.

Needless to say, InstaFriday didn’t post on time.  I had my iPad with me, and I did try at one point…but it was just too hard and my brain was just much too jumbled on literally half an hour of sleep (did I mention I’m also 7 months pregnant and supposed to be “taking it easy”?).

I’ll fill y’all in some more on Monday about our adventures, but for now, you’ll have to forgive my poor linky party hostess skills.

Was your week better than mine?

I'm a mom to four. A wife to one. I believe in story. I love telling you about mine and would love to hear yours. There's really no sense in wasting our suffering and not sharing in each other's joy. We're all in this together...even if it doesn't always feel like it.

    My dear I am so glad you posted today…I knew something must be wrong when I saw your absence. What an ordeal for all of you. Having grown up with a sister who was frequently hospitalized with no notice, I have some understanding of the trauma involved. Sending you and yours much, much love .

    Hey, Jeanett. I am so sorry for your last few days’ events. Poor little doll, Jilly. :( Just wanted you to know that I was not complaining and/or expecting in my comment on your Friday post. :) I know you’ve had a rough week and I was just going to post my own little InstaFriday. ;) Thanks for the link though and I HOPE I didn’t cause you any more stress or anxiety by my silly words. ((HUGZ))
