Thank you so much mamas. As of this morning she's off the meds keeping her asleep, we tried waking her but it didn't work. So now it's up to her. She is breathing against the vent, and that is so, so good. She's fighting.
She shouldn't have to go through this.
Our other 6 yo. is also her, he's sleeping with his arm around his sister atm.
He's so worried, and can't sleep at home, so I can't see any harm in him being here.

Hang in there Pixie. More prayers for your little girl and your family. Your son is such a special little guy to be there with his sister.

It worked.
I might try something like this, it seems like that might be the best solution!

They are happily eating now, something I cannot even watch today. ugh! I'm 12 weeks today. This will pass soon, right??? I'm trying hard not to just start crying.
I did, absolutely, the first part of this pregnancy. I think that 99% of pregnant women has the thought at least occur to them - that WTheck was I thinking????? thought. It's so hard, especially those early weeks. And to have that many little ones coming to your house that often -- I don't think I could have coped, honestly. You're doing GREAT, mama... and it will get easier.

Now (I'm 21 wks now) I'm thinking, "Why did I say that this was my last pregnancy??? I want more babies!!! I'm supposed to have more!" -- which is totally hormonal, because I'm very okay with being done with baby-having for the forseeable future. I think all of these thoughts are normal. I'm pretty sure that women can swing through the whole spectrum of "I'm supermama!" and "Someone should have stopped me!" even in one day.

I'm not sure how the dynamic will be later on, but right now I have two girls, 7yo and 5.5yo, and two boys, (3.5 and 2) so the toys are all mostly shared. The girls seem to have a division - one doll belongs to one, and another to the other, but they share them together pretty equally, and they're stored together... same with the boys' toys. I'm assuming when the baby arrives, for the first 2-3 years, those toys will be "the baby's toys" and they'll be separate. If the baby is a girl that might just continue on; if it's a boy, then all the boy's toys may just end up together.

As the kiddos get older, they may want more separation and definition in some of their belongings, but so far that's not been an issue for them.

Truly. I took care of it.

Pixie, sending you and your little miss so much love.

I am in a terrible mood. Nicholas lost his shoes. Again. And not going to church wasn't an option. Nor was looking around for them because I am the choir director and needed to be there. So I took him with no shoes.

Thank goodness. I hope she gets better and better.

annettemarie - the shoe things drives me nuts too.

Pixie, I'm so glad.

AM, have you considered superglue?
post #177 of 228
Thank you, guys. I just wanted to say that quickly earlier today.
Little miss cotton ball button is weak, and has some issues with her sight (normally perfect). We don't know what it is yet, she says it's blurry, and she can only see up close.
But we're checking it out first thing tomorrow morning if it's still like that.
She was so happy to see us all again, and everyone was glad to see her awake. She woke up around 3.30 pm-ish and an hour later they were all her to visit. She and her bro' J is sleeping snuggled up again, such a beautiful sight. (They do that at home too, but it's so clear what a bond they have when he needs to be here to sleep when she's sick. And she has better SATS that way.)
