I have been so busy enjoying this weather, I forgot all about my website. Shame on me...actually shame on M&D. I cannot even type or use the computer?!?
It has been so nice to enjoy outside again. Walks, park visits, swings, wagon rides...all the fun stuff. Unfortunately, a little allergies to go with it. But nothing this little lady cant handle. I will gladly take a little itchy eyes for sun and 70 degree weather.
Happy Mom's Day to all the Moms! Especially Granny Nanny, Grandma Carrie, Aunt Michelle, Aunt Christine and my favorite mom of all....MINE!!
I am actually heading on a road trip this weekend. Ladies only...Lansing here we come. I get to see mom's side of the family. We have some seriously overdue birthdays and celebrations to make up for.
Other than that, all is good here. I am feeling better. I am getting stronger and healthier each day so that I can get back to my therapies and eventually my surgery to help my legs. I will get into that more some other day, but for today....HAPPY MOMS DAY to all the moms out there. I will update everyone after my awesome weekend away.
p.s. I posted some new photos...
Thanks everyone for all the well wishes...I am feeling much much better. I am almost back! Now that I am healthy, where is spring?!? This little lady needs to get out and about. I keep getting teased with one nice day and then its gone!
I watched the weather for the week and it doesnt look any better...ugh.
Thank you everyone for all the birthday cards and gifts. I was too sick to have a party, I was even too sick to enjoy Easter but my family is so great I still got presents!! Thank you, thank you!
I hope to get back in the swing of things...I think we all need to get out for some fresh air.
Happy Easter weekend to everybody. I am doing better, thanks for all the thoughts and prayers. I think they helped....I know they helped.
I am so happy I am feeling better, cause not only is it Easter, but its MY BIRTHDAY! I turn the big 03 on Saturday. This little lady is getting up there :)
Not much of an update today. Just a thank you, a Happy Easter wish and I am glad I got to see granny nanny Rama yesterday. She has been gone so long I thought she forgot about me. She didnt of course, she bought me an awesome dress that I cannot wait to wear. It is definitely a Houghton Lake Summer outfit.
Go State, and yes I even say Go Blue today. Maize and Blue, not the dumb Duke blue...that is more like boooooooo.
This has been one terrible virus. I have been fighitng it for almost 10 days. Thanks for all the prayers and thoughts, it has helped!!
This is the sickest I have ever been. Thanks to our wonderful doctors and M&D I have been able to stay home during this battle. The virus has manifested into pneumonia. My left lung is really bad. I am on breathing treatments, anitbiotics, physiotherapy for my lungs and all kinds of other stuff to help me. On top of all that, I get fever spikes and when I do they are awful. I think I topped out about 104 the other day. It is really scary, especially for M&D. The fever totally wipes me out!! The other day I couldnt catch up on my oxygen. M&D did eveything they could just to keep my oxygen numbers in the good range. Several times now we have been packed for the ER but thanks to M&D and a little extra fight I have been able to enjoy NOT going to the ER.
Grandma Carrie is coming over today to help out. M&D are absolutely 100% exhausted. They have been with me around the clock, taking shifts at night. I dont think they have slept more than 5 hours continuous since this all started.
I promised them I am getting better, I am gonna fight fight as the Spartan song goes....
Oh by the way. Big games today. UM and MSU again. Go Big Ten, but especially go GREEN!!!
I may be sick, but I am never too sick to watch some squeaky shoe baseketball.
Its been a tough week. I have been really sick and at this point 2013 has been a completely miserable year for me and M&D. Please send prayers and best wishes, I am not to shy to ask! We need them. I caught another nasty viral infection which started as an upper respitory infection and now has turned into mild pneumonia. I am actually at the doctor right now to see how my chest x-ray looks and for another check up. It is NOT fun. M&D say this is the sickest I have been by far...and I agree.
I hope all the best for my followers, friends and family. Stay well and think spring!!
I am not sure about you but I am ready for Spring...I am starting to get the "fever." Not the bad fever, I had plenty of those this winter. I am talking about spring fever. Everyone is or has been on vacation, I keep seeing all these warm Florida commercials on TV and I am ready for spring. I am ready for outside time and walks and the park and the boat!
Not much else to report here...we have been trying to get healthy. Our family has had a rough start to 2013. Mom is ready to go crazy. So, in more ways than one, we are ALL ready for Spring.
Happy early March Birthdays to Miss Emily (Mrs Juicy) and uncle Matt and big 70 to uncle Frank!!
Feb and March are loaded with birthdays, wow! I will get to all the others later this month.
Yeah, I know, I am a little late. Dad has been lazy about updating my site. JK, Dad!
I keep bugging him and finally, now, he is helping me update all my friends.
I hope everyone had a good valentines day. Mine was pretty good. Mom and I went out shopping for balloons for Dad and bought stuff to make cookies. Mom and I had some girl time. We made cookies and shared some with my cousin Emily. I even gave her a balloon.
Now we are up north for a little getaway. It is fun. It is super cold but it is fun. I discovered this fireplace thingy. I love it. I sit and watch the fire...its soooo neat.
I have some birthday shout outs. I have to say happy 1st birthday to one of my best ohio girlfriends, Melanie. She just turned one! Happy Birthday to my cousin Connor. Happy Birthday to Grandpa Jim. He is the big 60 this year. WOW. I am gonna have to make him a special bday present.
Happy Birthday to Mr Juicy...a couple days early :)
Whoa, February is a busy month. Happy Birthday to Mr Paul and Grandpa Tony too! I hope he is enjoying warm weather in Florida.
I think that covers all my birthday shout outs...sorry if I missed anyone :(
Thanks to Granny Nanny for hanging out with me last weekend. M&D went to Ohio for Melanie's first birthday and christening and Granny and I hung out. I had so much fun. We even went for a walk around our new neighborhood. I am gonna miss Granny when she goes to Florida. I will miss Grandpa too!!
I am off to enjoy my lunch and the fire. xox
Its been one rough start to the year. As Dad says, its been a long year! And its only 23 days old?!? We are hoping to put January behind us and looking forward to a better February.
I have been pretty sick. I guess I have been sick for about 3 weeks. Mom and Dad too! It hasnt been fun. I was so sick I actually had to go to the hospital for a bit. I had/have RSV. Its a pretty nasty virus and when kids like me get it, it can be critical. Luckily M&D had a funny feeling and with the help of our amazing Pulmonologist, Dr Doshi, we jumped into action and started doing all the right things before this nasty RSV junk turned into something far worse.
I cant wait to be better. I miss my therapy. I miss play time. We have been in lock down mode for the last few weeks and its not very fun. M&D (and me) are all at out wits end...whatever that means. I heard Dad say that. I also heard Dad say that they needed a vacation. Me too!!
I hope everyone else is feeling good and staying healthy. I know a lot of people that have been sick. When we were at the hospital there were tons of kids coughing, sneezing, weezing, etc. M&D made sure we were in and out of there so that none of us got sicker.
Well, on to some brighter stuff. At least we have been getting the chance to settle into the new house. Since we have spent almost every second here this year, M&D took the opportunity to unpack, settle in, decorate and make our new house as cozy as possible. I like it! I cannot wait for my toys to get here. I think they will be here this week. M&D are working hard on making the basement a little therapy room for me...well for all of us! We are putting all our exercise stuff down there and then we are going to hang my swing, my assistor hanging thing (I dont know what to call it) and my walker. Mom even ordered special padded flooring so that I can paly around while she uses the treadmill. Dad cleaned it all up and has a TV down there too!! I cannot wait, hopefully all the stuff is delivered and installed this weekend. I will be sure to send pictures and maybe even a vidoe of my new play area.
Happy Birthday to my Great Grandma Jan and my cousin Emily. Emily turned 1 on Jan 2nd and GG Jan turned....
I cannot wait for the birthday party on Saturday for Emily. The Birthday Girl, right, Granny Nanny?!? I have a pretty good cold. I think we all passed it around to each other on NYE. Mom and I have it but we are fighting it so we can hit the Bday party this weekend!
I posted some more new pics. We had a blast up north sledding. My cousin and I were pulled around the lake. It is crazy. We can actually walk on the lake!?! We had so much fun. My dog wasnt much help but he chased us all around. Thanks to Mom for getting the pics done so fast...enjoyhttp://makpics.smugmug.com/Photography/Winter-fun-2012/27320190_ZTvfVx
Merry Christmas to everyone and an early Happy New Year!!
I hope Santa was good to you. He was super good to me. I like this Santa guy. I wish he visited more than once a year...but I will take it.
I have so much to tell everyone! I have been a little lady on the move, literally. On top of all the Xmas visits, shopping, gifts and parties we decided to move to a new home. We are now residents of Huntington Woods. We moved right before the Xmas chaos. As soon as we moved we were off to our Christmas visits. We headed to Lansing to see all of mom's family. It was so much fun. I visited with everyone and got super spoiled. Santa even delivered presents in Lansing for me. What a guy!
After that, it was Mom's Birthday and we had a little birthday dinner at the new house. Happy Birthday Mom!
Then after that we had Xmas Eve and Xmas with Dad's family. I got more presents! Santa delivered stuff there too. He is one busy guy. He is by far my favorite guy...well almost, next to Dad, Grandpa Jim and Grandpa Gene.
I have so much more to share....
I posted some new pictures. Will try to get more updated. I am now at the cottage for the NYE party, so I may not have access to my site but will try to update again later this weekend.
Lets see, what else....I now sleep in a big girl bed. I am crawling a little better. I bunny hop but I am trying. I love playing with Dad's Ipad. I spent some time on the east side too. I moved in with G&G Rama when M&D were moving us. Farley came with me too! We had fun with Granny Nanny while M&D moved and Grandpa helped with the new house. Thanks for letting me crash on the east side G&G!
As you can see, I have been busy busy busy. But things are starting to settle down. We are enjoying a few days up north and then we are back home. Back to our new home and my big girl room and bed!!
Thanks to all my Santas! Thank you so much for the gifts and gifts of money. Mom already ordered my new swing. I will share a video as soon as we install it and I use it.
