Missing You All

Just a quick little post to let everyone in the Land of Blog know I'm still kickin'!
Life has been a bit hectic here this week. We thought Gabby had the stomach flu, but found out, after a trip to the doc, she has her first ever ear infection. She has been one sick little girl. Mommy, Bapa, and I have taken shifts day and night of holding her while she sleeps here and there. There's been fever, lots of tears, sporatic sleep, and very little appetite.
It's so hard to watch them be so sick!:{

I've tried to keep up some with all of your blogs but have fallen behind and am missing all the action of your daily lives. You know what it's like to have a sick little one, everything else fades to the background.
I did leave home on Monday night for 2 hours to teach my knitting/crochet class. Gabby was safe and happy in her BaPa's care. But, other than that, Grammy and Gabby have stuck close together.

I hope you are all enjoying the many blessings of life and the approaching Spring. I'll be back in full swing in a few days {pictures and all, hopefully!}, but just wanted to give an explanation of why I've been MIA!
Missing you all,
Danette

You know me, I have the hardest time making a post without a picture. So here's a picture of my mother reading to Gabby a week or so ago.

Well~ TaTa For Now!

Hiya! I'm so sorry Gabby has an ear infection! Those are just miserable! No wonder she's been tired and crabby and tearful! Give her a big hug from me! I love that little munchkin . . . (and the rest of you, too!)

Sorry the wee one has been sick :(

Mr Puffy used to have lots of ear infections (beagles are prone to them) so I know how difficult that can be. He doesn't have them so much now that we live in a dryer climate.

When I get busy I let everything go but the essentials. Don't let yourself get run down!

Oh, I hope Gabby feels better soon! It's so hard when you feel like you can't really explain to them that they will feel better.

If it's any consolation, I've been so busy in my training for my new job, I haven't been keeping up with all of my blogs too well, either.

Glad to see you are still hanging around! :)

Poor little Gabby. :( I hope she is feeling better. It is awful when they aren't feeling good. All you can do is cuddle with them. Which isn't bad ya know. :) Just wish it was possible to wish the not feeling good part away. Give her hugs!

I love the picture of your Mom reading with Gabby! So precious!

Loves! xxxxx

You are a missed person! But I completely understand - both of our kids had chronic ear infections when they were little and I remember just how hard they can be. The kids were so miserable and I was so exhausted!

Hope Gabby feels better very soon and hope you all can get some rest.

Hugs from Shari
