When your baby is sick

There is nothing worse than when your baby is sick. You can't sleep, you can't eat, you can't think, you can't do anything but feel sick yourself at the thought of anything hurting your little one. That's how we felt when Sierra started getting sick all of a sudden a couple of days ago.
She was on her bed and I saw that her chest was contracting. It made me really nervous. She was very short of breath and was yellow and because of her medical condition, Hereditary spherocytosis and gilbert's we can't take any chances.
I told Paul that she needed to go to the hospital and he looked at her and agreed. We went in Tuesday and didn't leave until Wednesday evening.
When we got there she couldn't complete a sentence with out needing to try to take a breath and felt horrible. After all the treatments, meds, and lots of love we started seeing a huge improvement.
This was her the next day already starting to get a little better.
After more meds and rest...
When the nurse asked her if she wanted to do some crafts she was so excited!!
The nurse told me that Sierra told her that she loved doing crafts and that she got her creativity from me. SO SWEET!!!
The nurse asked her what she got from her dad...jokingly she said, " hereditary spherocytosis and asthma". It's true. LOL


We would like to thank everyone for their prayers and blessings!!! I believe that it's because of this that she was able to heal so fast!!!
She asked me to thank you and tell you that she loves you all!!!
