Babies Situation:

What a crazy weekend. We had both their Occupational Therapist and their Home Health Nurse came out early Friday morning to meet the girls and start their work with them. We also took both Girls to see the Pediatrician for the first time Friday afternoon. We were there for 2 ½ hours while they got to know our history, measured and weighed them, and gave the Girls their 4 month vaccinations. We thought all was good until Trinity woke up with a 103 temperature Friday night. Long story short, Keith had to take her to Dell's Children’s Hospital. After already getting 4 shots this afternoon, she got many more tonight and had to be admitted. Luckily, they think it was only a virus not a bacteria infection - thank you Lord. She should get to come home this evening.

Parent's Thoughts:

This was another heart wrenching experience for us. As I held Trinity in my arms before Keith rushed her to the ER, her little cry was definitely a sick cry. It broke my heart, especially when Keith called me to tell me that they were admitting her into the hospital for the weekend. We only had her home for 36 hours before she was once again in the hospital and dealing with everything that she had just left behind. She had to get a spinal tap, multiple pokes for trying to get blood work, and an IV put into her head as they were unsuccessful through the 3-4 veins they tried. One of the hardest things in the world is to watch someone hurting your baby. Thankfully she is OK now and will be home tonight. We are hitting the reset button and hope that this time around will be a bit smoother for all of us.

Our Daily Encouragement:

God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things.

Acts 17:24-25


  1. I am rejoicing that the girls are home, but it broke my heart to read about Trinity's trip back to the hospital. It is simply incredible what you all have been through as a family. I can't even put into words how much I admire your strength as parents and this journey that you've navigated through together. You all are an inspiration and I hope that you will soon be able to enjoy watching these girls grow into thriving, healthy, happy babies...children...young adults...and so on, forever.

  2. Praying after Trinity comes home that all stay healthy and well!! Enjoy your beautiful baby girls!! God Bless you!! :)

  3. Congratulations on having the girls home. So sorry about Trinity's fever and trip back to the hospital but happy she made it back home quickly.

    I can only imagine how busy you and you husband are! But, it's a good busy : ).

    Post pictures when you get a chance. I know, easier said than done.


  4. Congrats again on the girls being home!! I know it is exciting and scary all at the same time. I'm sorry Trinity had to visit Dell for a few days. I will pray that the girls continue to thrive at home with no more emergency visits to the hospital! You are doing an awesome job!!
