So it has been a long time... But we have been sick.... Madi ended up in the hospital on Sunday with Croup and had to stay overnight to be monitored because the breathing treatments they gave didn't work right off..... So then we took her to the food and nutrition clinic we have been waiting for for 4 months.... Madi has finally got her weight on the chart and is in the 2% so that was exciting.... But my main reason for writing is this....

Can you believe it Madi can walk, well not on her own but it's an improvement... We were so excited and now she loves this little stroller.... She is so cute and she now feels like she is a little more independent....

Happy Thanksgiving to us!!

Not.... 12:00 Lindie woke up and was having a hard time breathing I turned on the humidifier and gave her tylenol and sent her back to bed.... 15 minutes later I could hear her breathing from her bedroom to mine so I got up to check on her and layed in her bed for a while... She was sound asleep so I went and layed in my bed at 3:30 she was in her room crying and she was definatly getting wose. So I picked her up and rushed her to the emergency room.... She now has croup.. and we are just suppose to watch her and it will get better on her own..... I worried about her oxygen level ect but it was all fine.

I have heard before that if you have a bad feeling about going somewhere you should always listen to what you feel because there is always a reason..... Well I had had a bad feeling all week about going far away for Thanksgiving and I guess this is why....

Madi has also started to sound crappy so I hope hers passes easier than Lindie but you never know....

Oh and just to add cherry to the pie...... Our furnace is out... So I have two kids with croup and no furnace.... What a day....

I hope your thanksgiving is hapy and warm

We had so much fun on Halloween we went trick or treating and ate way to much Candy.... Madi was a devil (cause it was an easy wash costume...) and Lindie was a Pirate. They were so much fun.

Madilynn update:

Well I wish I could tell you guys who have been concerned about madilynn good news but at our appointment on Tuesday Madi has somehow lost two ounces and the doctor is beginning to get more concerned. Her blood work that was completed about 3 weeks ago came back normal except for he thyroid is a little hypo active (slow) which means she should be gaining a ton of weight not losing so the doctor says it's very confusing.... We will eventually have to treat her for her under active thyroid but for now getting her to gain weight is top on the list. We are making an appointment for the food and nutrition specialist at primary children's and she should be going there within the next two months..... The only thing that keeps my hopes up is that she has or the most part stopped spitting up so now it is just figuring out why she isn't getting what she needs although she eats a ton? This has been one of the hardest things for me to deal with as a mother because I feel helpless. No matter what I do as a mom it isn't working. AHHHHH!!!! I just have to tell myself it will be okay!!!!
