Our visit to the ER

I wasn't really sure if I wanted to talk about this on the blog, but as I have been reminded, this is our family's little diary and I want to remember this time in our lives. On Thursday, I got the call no mother wants to get. Luckily, it was Tim calling me and he has a way of making me calm in a not so calm situation. He told me that Landry had a seizure and had been unconscious and was being rushed to Children's Hospital. I felt the blood rush from my face and just listened to what he had to tell me. My boss was sweet enough to drive me there and we got there just as the ambulance was pulling in. Once I saw Landry, and she saw me, we both started crying. Seeing my baby wheeled in on a stretcher is not an image I would like to remember. My dad and Tim's mom met us there and we all just waited while Landry had some tests run on her. I was so scared and just held her the whole time. As Shay reminded me over the phone, this was the best hospital she could be at, and if there was anything wrong, they were going to find it. After all the tests were run, they came in and told us that she had a febrile seizure. They are usually brought on at the beginning of the fever. She ended up having a sinus infection and that is what is causing the fever. We are on the mend now and she has been just fine all weekend. After we found out that all was fine, I took some pictures to document this time in our lives.


I probably looked funny taking a picture in the ER, but I didn't care. For those of you that knew, thank you so much for your prayers and for making sure we were all OK. You know who you are, and we love you!
