When It Rains It Pours!

Well what they say is true! When it rains it pours!

It all started with my brother's car accident last Wednesday. He's recovering well but they may have to push the wedding date back a bit so they're thinking maybe late September just so they don't risk him not being fully healed and not being able to walk down the aisle.

Then on Friday Savannah contracted an infection from one of the IV lines. So Friday night into Saturday was one of the hardest nights in the past few weeks. I had flash backs to the night Olivia past away. I cried for hours thinking there was no way she was going to make it through this one. But she did! She fought off the infection with some help from the antibiotics. She'll still be on the antibiotics for a while but she's getting stronger!

Then Addisyn's breathing started acting up again and she needed assistance the whole day Sunday and most of Monday then again a bit on Tuesday. And as a result her heart rate was pretty low the whole 3 days.
All through the day Tuesday Gabe kept complaining about this pain in his lower left side. I thought it's probably something he's eaten. Well on Wednesday morning (probably about 1 or 2 am I'm not sure) he said the pain was unbearable so I drove him to the hospital. It turned out to be appendicitis and he needed his appendix out. So by 9 o'clock Wednesday morning he was in surgery. He's recovering well and should be home later today with orders to just take it easy.

And through all of this my sister and her kids have come down with horrendous colds. So I've been trying to avoid getting to close to them and risk me getting sick, that's really the last thing I need right now!

Song of the day is Stand by Rascal Flatts. I heard this song coming home from the hospital Monday night and balled my eyes out listening to the lyrics. I had to pull over because I thought I was going to crash. It's everything I've felt the passed almost 6 weeks.

Stand - Rascal Flatts


  1. WOW! You and your family(all of them, your husband, the sweet girls, and your brother) are in my prayers.

    May the Lord continue to give you the strength you need, and then some, to get through the next days, weeks, and months.

  2. You are one tough lady. Keep staying strong. God is with you.

  3. This is a fake blog! She is a fourteen year old girl PRETENDING to have triplets and making a fool of those who have lost a baby!
