twists and turns...

We’ve been absent for a very good reason. Little Leighton (LL) was admitted to a Dallas children’s hospital on Saturday evening. She’d been puny for about a month. She’d had some tests last Thursday and Friday mornings, but she got sick around lunch on Saturday.

Grammy , who is two hours away, stood by and learned, at 3:00 p.m., they were ambulancing (maybe not an actual word?) her to Dallas from another hospital near TLC’s home. I threw in blankets, pillows, toys, clothes, etc.—praying it would be an overnight.

It turned into three long, agonizing, heart-wrenching nights. All day Monday and Monday night were utter torture for our 2-year-old Angel. As TLC, her Hubby, and I moved about the hospital, we knew there were infants and children having much worse tests and treatments. While we prayed, non-stop, for LL, we prayed just as hard for all the other sweet kids enduring tough stuff.

LL was discharged at 2:00 p.m. Tuesday. (After her Mama and Grammy threw some wild-eyed fits. We’d been told by two different doctors she could go home that morning. When we kept getting the run-around by a charm-free nurse, they all got on our last nerves. We’d each had a total of eight hours of—interrupted—sleep in three days. Mama Bear and Grammy Bear got determined to get Our Doll home, into a lovely bath and her own bed. We’re probably on some “Watch Out For These Peeps” list now. To be honest? We don’t care.)

She will be having more tests done in the next few weeks and we’re truly very hopeful that the issues will be resolved.

Please say a little prayer for our Sweet Baby Biscuit…if you don’t mind…and all children suffering with medical problems they never, ever deserved.

Hopefully we’ll be back in touch soon…

Love and Hugs,

ELC
