Poor little thing. She has been just SO sick these last couple of days. I'm not exaggerating when I say she has only been awake 4-5 hours during the day for the last two days. She has just slept and slept. And when she is awake, she just wants to snuggle and be held.
Last night was the first time she ate anything with any kind of substance and she has a big sore on her tongue.
She coughs constantly and her little nose and Niagra Falls have a lot on common right now. Her eyes are still pretty gunky and her little whimper is just so pitiful. This morning was the first time she seemed to be without a fever. Her breathing has been quick and shallow, which has had me the most worried.
I think she looks sad even while she's sleeping!
I finally broke out the Champion juicer my mom had found at an estate sale over a year ago for about $30. They are normally over $200.
It has been FANTASTIC! I've been making her fresh apple, orange, and pear juice since she won't really eat anything. And I've been watering down her milk to help keep her congestion down.
Please get better my sweet baby girl!
I have fallen in love with this juicer, for more than one reason. While it has been a tremendous help for me, it has been even more so for my dad.
A few weeks ago my dad was diagnosed with stage 4 Lymphoma (cancer). It was very unexpected and very hard news to hear. My dad is incredibly special to me so I don't like to think about it too much. I'm getting all teary-eyed just writing this.
We are still not sure EXACTLY what form it is in, for there are many, or what the next step is. But, I do know that he has been living off of raw and juiced foods for the last couple weeks. Apparently, eating cooked foods puts him into intense intestinal pain. So he has been juicing a lot to avoid that.
So thank you Champion juicer! I'll love you forever!
If you would like to read about it in his own words, to date, click HERE and HERE. Just beware, his unique sense of humor is still in tact. =)
As I've mentioned HERE, my kids are all about giving gifts, especially homemade ones.
They also have a fascination with plastic grocery sacks. They like to stand in them, grab hold of the handles, and have sack races around the house.
Of course, being the wimpy little plastic things they are they don't tend to last very long.
After one such race, I walk into the kitchen and happen upon this.
After a good laugh, I asked Luke why he had that on his back.
"Joseph made me a cape."
Only a REAL man would be awesome enough to wear a cape like that. Sorry Batman, your cape just isn't up to snuff.
And now your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find a photo that describes your life or who you are and link back here so we can all come see! The Linky is good for the whole week.
We're averaging about four links a week. Not bad! LOL.
