Flashback Friday – Valentines Day 2010

12 Feb

It’s crazy to think that this picture was taken just 6 short years ago – she was only 2 months old.  Ladybug was in the hospital for “Failure to Thrive”, (A common diagnosis for children who, for no known reason aren’t gaining weight.) which went side by side with not tolerating feeds.  This was her first Valentines Day in the hospital.  After her nap we ventured out of the room and handed out Valentines to the kids on her ward.

We are praying that this Valentines Day we can keep Ladybug out of the hospital.  She is fighting bronchitis, an ear infection, and a fever that has been teetering between 38.9-39.9 C or 102-103.9 F for the past two days. We’ve just returned from the doctors and are hoping that round-the-clock Tylenol, a dosage increase of inhalers, and the addition of antibiotics will do the trick.

If there is one thing I am certain of, it is that my little Ladybug is a fighter.  It breaks my heart to see her so sick though. I just have to keep reminding myself, this too shall pass.
