69 Days with a little sniffle

Thank you to all of the prayers that you have said for our little girl. I wish that I could have written earlier to give a specific request that she has been sick, but because of that reason I haven't been able to write. On Sunday Magdalena was fussy all day, and her tears are always so sad. We noticed that she was had a runny nose, but we didn't know if it was because of the crying or if it was a cold. She didn't have a temperature. Thankfully, Mimi and Papa came over to help me while Noah went to worship, and Mimi noticed that the color of her mucus could mean that there is an infection somewhere in her body. I had no clue! We gave her some saline drops and continued to use the "red dragon" to clear out her nose. After a really good sleep in her boppy swing, she woke the following morning looking as though she felt much better. But when Mimi came over late in the afternoon she discovered that Magdalena had a fever. I felt completely helpless and horrible that I didn't know about it sooner. I had been with her all day and had not noticed that she was much warmer. Thankfully, the fever came down with time spent rubbing a cool wash cloth on her head and upper body. Her sweet little personality just isn't quite back today because it is still obvious that she doesn't feel well. There isn't a fever but her little cough and congestion is keeping her down. Please pray that she will feel better and that her body will fight the infection.

  9. How precious are your words! Your sweet little bundle of love feels every ounce of it I am sure. I feel your pain in the words you presnt. Your an awesome momma and God has blessed you so deeply by giving you the most perfect child. She is adorable and so sweet and lovable. I just felt like you needed to hear the words that YOU ARE an awesome mommy. Your sweet Madalina (did I spell it right?). You are blessed OH so blessed to have such a gift.

    In Jesus,

From one mom to another. The love you have for your daughter will NEVER let you go just as God will never let you go.

    Again I say,
    Blessings
