My little miracle!!!




This pregnancy has been really hard for me!! Not just because I am awful at it!!! But very emotional! At 20 weeks they started telling me problems the baby is growing right, Her kidneys are large. It went on and on and it seemed every appointment they would add something on top of it!!! Then my blood pressure started to rise and they made me stay in the hospital it was so hard to be away from Holden I missed him every second!! Casey was great to bring him up to visit!! I finally talked the dr. in to letting me go home and go on bed rest and Casey's mom came out to help Thanks so much Dana!!! I managed with lots of help to keep her in for 2 weeks. I was so happy!!! Amazing she was born with not one problem!!! HEr kidneys are normal size and she is just perfect!!! NO nicu I am sogreatful I got to bring her home!!
This past 10 days watching my sweet little angel struggle with RSV has been the hardest thing I think I have ever done!!! I took her into her dr. everyday for a cold and Thursday the 25th just 2 weeks of her being born they rushed her in an ambulance up to Primarys. I know so many of you have been calling and I am so sorry I have been awful to report it was hard to talk because I was seeing no improvement!! For so long!! She was on a machine to help her breath till yesterday and now she is on oxygen and a humidifier!! I am so greatful for all your prayers for all your calls for all the help with Holden and Casey!! Feeding him has been so helpful!!! We got to leave the ICU yesterday and now we are in the infant unit at primarys but we both are doing good!!! Her spirit amazes me she is the BEST baby the only time I have heard a cry from her is when the suction her out!!! Very diffrent from Holden!!! I love her so much and am so thankful I get to be her mom!!! I am sorry for all the rambling I havent got much sleep!!! But know I am so greatful for everyones help!!!!

Oh Whit, this made me cry! You are such a good little mommy and you have such an amazing spirit, too, Hadlie must've inherited that from you. You have been on my mind this whole week and I'm looking very forward to your report of when she gets to go home again. Hang in there, it'll happen soon. Lots of Love...

Oh sweet Hadlie..she certainly is a miracle!! I know it's hard to see now, but this experience will make you stronger. It will make you treasure her more. I am so so sorry you have had to go through all of this. You are one strong Momma. So sorry we haven't been any help. I feel awful. Hope she gets to come home soon. You are in our prayers daily.

Whitney, she is SO beautiful. I love all the hair and her precious little face. I am so thankful she was born healthy and am so glad to hear that she is doing better with the RSV. I can't wait to see her in person.

I agree with Timette Holden is awesomly funny, he keeps me laughing when he comes to play. Little Hadlie, your post brings tears to my eyes. I have seen you at every stage of this pregnacy and I have to say since you have been up at primarys I MISS You like crazy! I need a little Whitney in my life. You are so amazing and one amazing mom. You have been blessed by two incredible spirits. I love your family so much and I would do anything for you and your kiddos. Still praying...keep the faith. She will get to spend her first Easter at home, I am positive!

PS! I didn't think your comment was rude at all! I thought it was exactly right, it really was funny (annoying) situation!

Maria said...

We've been praying for you and Hadlie every night, and it is so sweet hearing Rachel pray for you guys. I'm so glad to see that she is doing better! She is so beautiful Whit and I can't wait to see the both of you. (it may be awhile, Rachel is sick and Logan has croup)
You're a trooper, hang in there, we're still praying for you guys every day.

Rachael said...

She is such a survivor! She gets that from her mommy. The hat is so dang cute on her!!!

Me in a nut shell said...

I feel like a shmuck...I didn't even know all this was going on with you... Sometimes I feel so out of the loop. I miss you visiting me...!

I am so glad everything is going ok for your little family! You are the sweetest person I know!

McKell Callister said...

Oh man, what an exhausting ride! You are tough to handle such an event! Hang in there!

Your good attitude amazes me! I can't wait for you guys to get her home and have life become somewhat "normal". She's a lucky little girl to have such a loving mommy!
