I like what spughy suggested, as well, though I suspect it will only delay the inevitable confrontation (which could be to your benefit, right now, since you already have enough on your plate without having to deal with crazy people sensationalizing your troubles.)
Update on Melany and Anna - Page 6
I agree with Spughy, Sunshinelove, Cabbit, and Tear - I'd send a quick email, asking her not to post things about Anna, that it's your information and you'd like to control who sees it, and not have it out there for all her facebook friends, too.
I wish you strength if you decide to do this. If I were in your shoes (which I can't even begin to imagine) I would un-friend her in an instant.
They also moved us into the Ronald McDonald house. Pete's going to bring the kids by tomorrow and they will stay with us. Pete wants me to spend the day with them while he's at the hospital. I think I need that mental health break.

Also in big news, apparently if you are in the hospital for more than 30 days, you become eligible for Medicaid regardless of income eligibility. That is quite a relief because they dropped the number of what our bill is up to and we've significantly topped the value of our home (before the housing crash) on just the facility charges. They didn't have the air flight or doctor fees in it, yet. The social worker joked that I could have a million dollar baby.
Melany, I can understand that it must be very hard for you to leave your DD, and that you must be mentally struggling with staying or going. Is there any way you can go home and be with the older kids for just one day on Easter? I know it will be hard, but I also feel your older kids must miss you like crazy, and being with them for this holiday will be meaningful for them. It's just an idea, and you have to do what your heart tells you.
That is fantastic news about getting Medicaid!! It's there for this exact reason, and what a help it will be for you and your DH...
Melany, I can totally understand that it would be hard to imagine leaving Anna. Could Pete stay with her while you went home for just a short visit? Maybe there would be some positive parts to getting a little distance for a day or two? Like getting to reconnect with your other kids? Or just getting a little refreshed? I know that wouldn't work if you were worried about Anna the whole time, though. I hope you can figure out a decision that feels good.
The Medicaid news is awesome.
