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

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!!!!

hands and feet

Last Night I was going through some old photos and found some I took of the girls feet and hands together I thought that I would post them because I think we all forget about the little treasures that are tucked away and stored somewhere in our house. I need to go through all my pictures and make sure that they don't get forgotten.... I definitely will be scrapping these!!!

Madi is 11 months old

Can you believe it. She has grown up so fast. She is such a happy kid. She went to the doctors on Tuesday this week and in Madilynn's normal style she gained only 2 ounces in 3 1/2 months. So the doctor has finally decided that it is time to do blood tests to determine why she is not gaining weight. A lot of it has to do with her constant spitting up that she has had her whole life. The other part of it is that she sleeps most of the day she is awake about6 hours a day. They have changed her to all solid foods and we hope that this will help her gain weight over the next few weeks...

And I scrapbooked with a few of my friends that came over on Tuesday. We did it after the kids went to bed. It was nice to scrapbook without whinning from kids!!! Here is what I made.

Welcome Tinkerbell

Okay so I swore I would never get another dog after the experience we had with Brock... (He bit the police chiefs daughter...) But we had to go look for some reason. Why a Saint Bernard? I dunno. Why did I even search for a Saint Bernard? I have no clue but I saw her picture I thought well we can go look. When we got to the house to look at her It was like love at first site for all of us. She came around the corner and she just made you go WOW... She is amazing.... She can sit, stay, Lay, Speak, Heel, shake, come and the neatest thing is she can go potty on command. It is so funny to watch Lindie with her she can walk her to the park even though Lindie is 30 pounds and Tinkerbell is 150 pounds and Lindie has no problem walking her at all by herself . She is so fun and probably the best dog I have ever seen in my life...
