Well, Sunday started off wonderful. Atleighs first Sunday in church. Dallas carrying her and rocking the pink camo diaper bag. #hedontmind Thank you Dakota and Jossie for letting me make this sweet memory with my buddy.
By that evening it all changed. We had all been worried that Atleigh was urinating way too much for her age and was afraid she would get dehydrated. She pees more than she takes in in other words. They were afraid she wasn’t retaining her normal water weight. So they took her to the ER and they couldn’t find anything so they transferred her by ambulance to Leboneur in Memphis, TN.
After 4 days of enduring being poked and prodded and still remaining a happy, smiley baby, all tests come back negative or normal. Even after with holding two feedings she still peed alot. Two things me and Atleigh have in common, we don’t like to skip meals, and we pee alot. It still puzzles them but she is now over 12lbs at 6 wks old and is not getting dehydrated.
We had some worried, stressed and exhausted kids. You can’t get any sleep in hospitals by the way. Daddy made her feel better all the time.
We didn’t go to the hospital because there was not enough seating room in the room and I did not want to spend the time in the waiting room either. I felt like we would have gotten in every ones way so we hung back in case they needed us to bring them anything. I had to stay busy cause I was going crazy for my kids sakes. All I could do was pray and pray. I got mad at myself because I felt my faith lacking. I was scared. I just lost it one day and just had to let it out and have a good cry. My husband asked why I stressed so much and needed to quit doing that. Men, a word of advice, don’t ever tell your wife that if you don’t want her hands around your neck. Just hold them and let them cry it out.
All we could do was stay busy. So dear hubby (to whom I did not choke) got busy finishing those projects I told you about. Well, here is the first:
After waiting for 4 months for two different people to keep telling us they would get to us, we got tired of waiting, so he just did it himself. He replaced my door with a smaller one on one of our out buildings that kids would leave open in not one but several 60mph wind with thunderstorms and it rip your door off. Back to normal now.
Then he made use of some wasted space in our utility room and made a closet to put our dirty laundry baskets in and shoes from when we come in.
I am so excited. It organized and hid everything from plain sight of company. Now we are going to repaint in there sometime.
Then we got a phone call that our grand blessing was getting to come home. They made it safe and sound.
The same day which was today was Dallas’ big day.
WOW! Freshmen Day, first day of High School. Where has the time gone? He was up at 5am, excited and a little nervous but you wouldn’t know it. Just confident.
He’s not so little anymore. Make the most of it son and do your best this year. The safety of our future is in your hands. 😁😁😁 🔫🔫🔫🇱🇷🇱🇷🇱🇷
Our town doesn’t have a high school so they have to go to the next town and go where the high school is located. Same as Dakota and Jossie did. The elementary school transports the high school students to the high school. He kind of likes it. Our next door neighbor is the bus driver so my kids are kind of protective of her. He had a good day today and they are all excited.
We are getting the house and yard ready for Saturday. We are having a meet and greet party for Atleigh for family and friends now that she has had her shots. It has been a busy and stressful week none the less. But we’re good and God has blessed and answered prayers.
