I'm a slack Blogger

Lol! Angel 2

Well the festive season is just around the corner.

I am slowly getting myself organised, at least I have ordered the Turkey Roll and ham now.

Lots been going on. Mitch is back to his normal self and is all clear of whatever he had before.
Well here is one of my Scrap with V Kits
Christmas Crackers

Christmas Joy

The Magic Cave

And these 2 come as a double in the other kit of mine.

The kids are getting excited as Christmas approaches.

So funny last year we went to the Magic Cave and saw Santa there.

Then later we went into another shop and saw Santa again. He beckoned us over but Hayden piped up " We saw you already". I laughed what answer to give. And was interested to here what he was going to say in response to that.

To which he said he has ducked out for a break and came over to this shop to see some other kids, and that he remembers seeing the boys a bit earlier. But the boys just stood and chattered to Santa about toys they liked. They didn't sit on his lap as they had already done this.

But it was just so funny.

Miracle - Song

You're my life's one miracle
Everything I've done that's good
And you break my heart with tenderness
And I confess it's true
I never knew a love like this 'til you
You're the reason I was born Now I finally know for sure
And I'm overwhelmed with happiness
So blessed to hold you close
The one that I love most
Though the future has so much for you in store
Who could ever love you more
The nearest thing to heaven
You're my angel from above
Only God creates such perfect love
When you smile AT me I cry
And to save your life I'd die
With a romance that is pure in heart
You are my dearest part
Whatever it requires I live for your desires
Forget my own, your needs will come before
Who could ever love you more
There is nothing you could ever do
To make me stop loving you
And every breath I take Is always for your sake
You sleep inside my dreams
And know for sure
Who could ever love you more

By Celine Dion

This is such a beautiful song. A lovely CD to play in your baby's nursery, a very calming tone that will send your bubs to sleep. Even for the mum its very relaxing.

Some Hope

It has been a pretty full on couple of weeks even perhaps a few months now. But I see some hope!
Mitch is beginning to become his old self again with improvement of his eating as I'd say he lost a kg or 2 while sick. Hayden had croop as well but is now fine. I hope this is it for a while then I can turn back to myself to get better as I've had to put this aside to be with the boys to get them better first.

And just a little note to 2 special friends of mine. To keep your chin up there is some HOPE coming its just hard to see it sometimes but it will.

A seed of Hope I wait for
Through this long journey I've taken
Wondering whether my body can take anymore
Heartache and Loss I feel.
Every month we hope and pray
That this is it for us
I wait and wait and wait for some joyous news to come
But again another month passes
My heart breaks a little more
Each time we try and fail
I keep wondering why God is making it so difficult
Or has he just forgotten me
There is a glimmer in the distance
A speck of light, a seed of Hope
I will keep running till I reach this destination
And believe in myself a bit more
Surely God would not punish me
For wanting just one wish
But now see he has a plan for me through this message to me
That I must believe and trust in him
And Hope will return to me again.
Written by Lea Adcock
My poem to 2 special friends of mine.
Donna K & Donna C
Love you both your friendship I treasure so much.

Baby Nappy & Wedding Gift Cakes

I've just been taught how to make these gorgeous things.

A few friends like them so I might make a few to sell and see how it goes.

Most of these ones are created with disposible nappies, blankets, towels, face washers and bibs, booties and hats.

Then I've seen some of these which is a fab idea if giving towels as a gift for Engagement or Wedding Gifts. For any enquiries about these feel free to contact me or my friend Donna.
Free Delivery for any Hospital in the Adelaide Metro Area for the Baby Cakes.
Interstate and overseas posting also Available.

Mitch in Hospital Again today.

Well after a long day at the hospital again.
Mitch had another blood test and they left the IV lock on just incase they needed it again saves having to poke him again. They are doing 5 tests pretty much covering everything.
We waited around for over an hour for 2 of the tests to which last time came back at a count of 51 which isn't good and this time came back as a 1 which is good. So these first 2 tests have come back clear.
The 3 we are to wait till Friday to see if they develop coultures. So I am so crossing my fingers that they come back clear.

So I am sorry if I have been a little stressed and worried. That's why I haven't been around very much. But once Mitch is out of the woods and has a green light I will come back at full force again and post more.


Never Rains it Pours!

Well I've just heard from FMC last night that our dear Mitch's blood and urine tests have come back positive for some sort of bug in his blood. Have no idea what yet and we are to go back into the hospital today to do some more tests. Feels a bit scarey to me.
And Hayden has had Croop for the last few days so its been pretty full on at the moment. I have put aside my health issues to make sure my boys get what they need to get better.

So due this I have resigned from my DT position with Meant to Be. I was sad to do that but my family needs me. And I know there are other places out there in the future when things calm down again.

So I am sorry I haven't updated my blog for a while as it is due to my kids being sick for some time.


Funny Stuff

Hayden makes me laugh sometimes.
The other day he told me he was growning up. I asked him how he knew this. Now Hayden with a huge smile replies " Well Mum you see I have hair on my arms and legs now". I smiled at DH and thought you have a long way still to go but will probably be the last time you mention you have hair growning. lol!

But Hayden is just so cute with what he says.

Total Exhaustion

These last 48hours have been worrying, scared, teary and tiring. Mitch hadn't been feeling well Thursday night. He was fine during the day. He refused dinner didn't want to drink. Had a temp of 38.8 degrees so I wip out the panadol medicine to calm him down and his temp. Giving panadol children's medicine through a syring in not the easiest thing when they refuse to take it. As Mitch wont take it in a medicine cup or spoon. But perservere with the medication to get it into him. With luke warm water I wet face washers and slowly washed his face. I know its hard to fight him as he needs to be cooled slowly as took quickly or too cold can shock his system.

4hrs later his temp had climbed to 39 degrees, panadol may just holding it steady. I gave him some panadol and drink to wash it down. He guzzled too quick and it all came straight back up. DH said give him some more as he just threw it up. I said no as I don't know how much he got and don't want to OD him. I put the medicine away for now hoping that he got some.

He cuddled in our bed and DH slept in Mitch's bed. He was still burning up. His temp dropped a little after awhile but only to 38.3 I kept on dabbing his face with the face washer as much as I could till I fell asleep curled up with him.

Morning he seemed ok for a little while. But temp had gone back up to 39. Gave him some panadol and made an appointment for the GP. Poor Mitch started having very painful stomach cramps. Worse than what he ever had with Gastro up came the medicine again. He couldn't hold onto any liquid. Mean while Hayden was getting stressed because Mitch was so sick and because we'd miss out on taking him to school. I rang Mum who came over after her Doc's appointment picked up Hayden and took him to school for me.

Took Mitch to GP's put him in his big 3 wheel pram as he was too heavy for me to hold him. And he just lay there saying "I love you Mummy".

Once in the Doc checked him out, he was dehydrated and temp had crept upto 40.6 degrees. She quickly wrote me a note and rang the hospital to tell them I was on my way.

Took him straight in the ED and they took him through imediately. put him on hydralite but he refused. Tried him on apple juice and water and that seemed to stay down but eventually he started to refuse that too. They quished and prodded through 2 staffing shifts so repeating everything became tiresome. Finally they decided after no luck with fluid they gave him an IV drip to rehydrate him and take some blood and urine samples. They said its not Gastro but possibly a Blood infection or pneumococcal ( but Mitch had his vaccinations for pneumococcal - but it doesn't cover all 90 strands ). At this point I did not know the actual seriousness of either of these 2 conditions till we got home today. But the Docs of FMC covered every base they could. Chest xray and blood tests in case of pneumonia to which he had 3 months ago but this one came back clear. Both of these conditions can come from pneumonia. So it was kinda scarey. His big sad eyes his screams of being poked and prodded and holding my hand for dear life really tore at my heart. I just held him close and stroked his face till he went to sleep.

I stayed in over night at hospital with him. As I could never bring myself to leave him as it was hard enough to leave the room while he was awake as he would fret that I wouldn't come back.

Mitch had 4 big doses of antibotics to back off whatever he had and would fight off both the conditions aswell. Over night Mitch's temp came down below 37 degrees and stayed with the continual use of panadol to keep bringing it down. To now not needing it now.

He spoke the Hayden on the phone last night and Hayden told him he loved and missed him and to get better soon. Mitch said thankyou. It was so beautiful. Then this morning DH comes in with Hayden and the boys had such a huge hug for each other and Hayden sat on Mitch's bed and did some colouring in with him.

Its just amazing to see the close bond they have with each other. Hayden dotes on Mitchell ( lol most of the time ) and misses him terribly and worries greatly about Mitch when he is sick. So much so it can and has previously affected him at school.

Mitchell depends on Hayden for companionship and is shy without Hayden around sometimes. He misses Hayden while he is at school too.

I am just thankful and blessed that whatever whichever condition Mitch had I hope that its over now. That he becomes my lil' man again. And that it didn't develop too seriously as both of these conditions can be deadly.

I shed a little tear of thankfulness that I have my lil' man that he responded well to the medication and is on the mend but may take some time. I am thankful for my friends who rally behind me in thought and love over great distances that say a little prayer for me & Mitch. Who are there caring about me and my family. It helps you be that little bit stronger when you need to be.

Thankyou to all who emailed, phoned, texted, posted messages to me sending their wishes.

It has been a long 48 hours and I just held Mitch close tonight before bed and told him that I loved him so much for being so brave and that I was so proud of him. He smiled and said thankyou Mummy, don't be sad. I love you too!.

Thanks to All for your kind hearts.

mwah to you

I can feel your embraces across the distances we all live in.

Thankyou from the bottom of my heart it is so appreciated.
I love my boys so so so much.

Mitch is 3 Today

Well tonight Mitch had an absolute ball of fun. This is his nice stash of Lightning McQueen pressies etc.... He totally loves it. He also got a really nice camp sleeping bag -5 and a camp stretcher of his own too. A very lucky and spoilt boy.

Well my boy Mitch is now 3 today. My he has grown so fast, time just flies past. We are just having a close Friends and Family tonight for a little birthday. Mitch has gone nuts on Lightning McQueen stuff and will be so estatic tonight with his goodies.

He has currently gone off with my Sister Tanya and her husband Mark to the Zoo with the kids. They were originally going to go to Greenhills but then decided the Zoo. That's ok I was going to plan a trip there but maybe next year or we'll try some other place to go too.
So they took a train in to the city and then took the Popeye boat around to the Zoo entrance.

I was very touched that my sister wanted to do this with the boys. I hope they all have a great time.
