I Will be Sleeping Tonight. . .

I hope! I can't tell you the last night I got a solid night sleep. I know that once you have kids you never really sleep like you did before, but lately this has been ridiculous! It is all my fault. The sick wake up calls become routine, but once I have been woken up lately I have been finding it really hard to go back to sleep. I have been driving myself crazy with worry. After today, I feel so much better!
The kids are all feeling much better. We had are meeting at Children's Hospital today. I can not tell you enough about what a wonderful and amazing place that is! At a personal level, we were taken care of! They spent so much time with us. They answered all of our questions. They are taking care of my babe. Although, this is going to be something that he will always have and he will always have to be on medicine, I feel like he is going to be OK! Looking around at everyone else's babies, big and small, I felt lucky! They are working miracles there. Those doctors and nurses are not average, they are angels!
I have more energy. I do not feel as overwhelmed. I will be back to blogging. Thank you again for all of your kind words, thoughts, and prayers! Goodnight!

What a crew!

We have got one sick house here! This picture shows you what I'm dealing with. Abby and William have had the fever, cold, cough thing. She is finally starting to get some collor back in her cheeks. I think she is on the mend. For some reason she is always the first to get sick and the first to get better. William is just one big fever booger and all he wants is to be held. Holding him isn't a bad thing at all because he is so cuddly! Hopefully he will be feeling better by tomorrow. Charlie ended up getting what the other two have the day after being at the hospital. He is a trooper. For some reason Donald has a broken blood vessel in his eye and it looks like I punched him out. It is not hurting him, but boy does it hurt to look at!
I spoke to the Doctor on Friday and the tests for Charlie came back positive for inflamatory bowel disease. The doctor said right now because of where it is effecting him it is ulcerative collitis. He prescribed medicine for him which was really difficult to get but I will post about that another time. We have to go back on Tuesday to meet with a team. I have a million questions and hopefully we will get them all answered then. I know that it could be so much worse, but I still wish that it didn't have to be anything at all. He is my baby!
Thanks again for all of your kind words and prayers. We will get him on track and feeling better.

Sorry I did not get here sooner!

After a long day of tests yesterday, we still do not know everything. We should know more by the end of the day today. I am so releived to have yesterday overwith and to be close to knowing what is going on. Charlie is great, according to him, yesterday was one of his best days ever. He got to be with his Mom and Dad by himself all day and go to "one of the coolest hospital's in the world", and eat whatever he wanted when he was done. He also had some really crazy dreams! (he must have forgot to shut off his t.v.!) When he got home he got to chill out and watch Schreck. The really good thing is the stuff that I can not even say is rulled out. The tough part is that he is my baby and I wish there was nothing wrong at all. I would much rather it be me! We will get through this!
Thank you so much for all of your nice words, thoughts and prayers!

Calling All Blog Angels!!!!

I am writting this hoping that you read my sister Amy's post from last week. I am so slow at this and I don't have the time or the patience right now to figure out how to link it up. Well anyway, Amy did a really nice post about blog angels. We are needing some prayers over here! I am not a very good communicator, especially when I am worried about something. Needless to say, I am really worried. I do not want to sound any alarms before I really know anything and I am sorry for this. I was hoping maybe you could keep us in your prayers before I give you any details. I know this is selfish. I am hoping after tomorrow I will be able to say, "Thank God that is all it is" and carry on. All that I do know right now is that saying about, "being a mother is like letting someone else walk around with your heart" (that is definately not it exactly, but you can get the jist), well anyway, it is more than your heart. It is your whole heart and soul that they walk around with! Please, Dear God, Make Everything Be O.K.!!!

Couldn't you just eat these?

I just love these legs! He is on the run now, so I don't know how long they will stay like this. I just can't get enough of them or him!!

Just one of those days. . .

I woke up this morning to Abby and Charlie pulling the covers off of me in a desperate attempt to get me out of bed. I just couldn't get up. When I finally did pull myself out of my bed I looked at the clock and we were late. I stumbled down the stairs and put together a quick breakfast for the three rascals. As they ate I ran back up and grabbed clothes for each. I threw some clothes on this body and ran back down. I changed William and at the same time coached Abby and Charlie to get there clothes on. With William all dressed I put him in the play pen and got the other two to brush their teeth and wash their face and hands. We were a little backwards today, but, I was rushing!! We got shoes, hats, gloves, and coats on and off to the car we went. There was a dusting of snow so I got everybody strapped into the car, started it up and then scraped the snow off. Finally, we were on our way! We got to preschool at exactly 9:00. We made it! After all of that we were on time!
After I got them settled into their class room, William and I took off to get this momma some coffee. I was having one of those days. Aside from waking up late and rushing the kids off to school I was feeling stuffed into my jeans! This feeling comes along every so often, but lately with the winter months here and not excercising like I would like to be I am having that feeling alot! I went through the drive through at Dunkin Donuts and only ordered a coffee, thinking, no more snacks for this momma who is stuffed in her jeans! I stopped at my parrents house for a quick visit before going home to clean the disaster that I had left behind. I sat down with my Mom as my Dad took William into the play room to get some toys. I said to my Mom, " I am having one of those days. You know Mom, my jeans feel tight and I don't even feel comfortable in my undies." She said, "Oh Lisa, you look great. Just buy some new undies, that always makes you feel better!" We got up and went in with my Dad and William and I visited a little longer and then William and I headed home.
When I got home I put William in for a nap and started cleaning. I stopped to take a bathroom break and you wouldn't beleive what I found. I am sure I have put on a few pounds in these winter months and that is why my jeans feel tight, but maybe things were not as bad as I thought! The reason why I felt so uncomfortable in my undies was because . . .my thongs were on backwards!
