Then this happened.

Life moves pretty fast. You never can tell what’s gonna happen next. A trip to ER just to be cautious has become a hospital stay for E (I’m here with her).


A special visitor came today. This beautiful dog (and one other) really brightened an otherwise dull time here in the hospital.

Miss E is doing good. Right now she’s being observed and will be here (and me right by her side) a while longer…

If you’re in my class at Big Picture – it’s begun!! Class materials are up (also watch your email!) and the fun has begun. If you aren’t there is still time to register. I’m grateful for descent wifi + laptop keeping me connected.

Also grateful for all the well wishes from friends and kind hospital staff and for a target so close that has made clean clothes and properly conditioned hair a reality. Being truly clean? It’s made all the difference in me feeling more myself and made me more effective to be here for E.

Crossing fingers for my girl to get well soon and be back at home too!

  16. May,

    I’ll be praying for y’all.


  17. Well wishes to Miss E that she is able to leave the hospital very soon, It’s wonderful that she received her special visitors because they help with recovery. Bless you all!!

  18. As I said in my email I am sending healing thoughts Miss E’s way and wishing you well too. What a difference it makes that a parent can stay with their child in the hospital. I remember going back and forth to Chicago every day for several months years ago when my youngest was ill. I think that you being with Miss E will help speed along her recovery. God bless and be by your side.

  19. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your whole family. This summer I stayed with my 11 yr. old in the hospital for 5 days. It’s hard on everyone. We also had a therapy dog come by and it was great. Praying for her speedy recovery.

  20. Get Well Soon Miss E! I know that puppy had to make a huge difference, for everyone! We have pet therapy at our hospital, and I just WISH it would happen when I’m there!! The patients say it’s the BEST!! Hope all goes well, for having a hospital stay!

  21. Oh no, your poor baby. I hope she recovers super fast and you can both get out of there. I know from lot of experience that hospitals are not fun places to be. I signed up for class yesterday! Love all the stuff on mists!

  22. Delurking to send you and Miss E. best wishes and heartfelt prayers for q quick and easy recovery.

  23. Wow… kids, you never know what’s going to come next! Will say a prayer for you both! Beautiful dog (and daughter, LOL)… you must be a very proud mom!

  24. May – will say a special prayer for your precious daughter to recover quickly and get back to a bright life! So glad the dogs showed up, by the way – they are such a wonderful comfort at times like this!

  25. My heart is so touched by this. Any child in need always pulls on my heart. She is so fortunate to have such a wonderful mom and family. Get well soon!

  26. My best wishes for your daughter. As a mom, I can imagine how hard it would be to have your little one in the hospital.

  27. Big Hug! I so hope that you guys are home really soon, and that it’s nothing to worry about! All the best from San Jose.
