I mentioned last week that my niece wasn’t feeling well… well as it turns out – she has e. coli! Poor baby has been miserable. Thankfully the hospital finally released her yesterday afternoon to return home (but stay in isolation). So that’s good news! She is definitely on the upswing of this. 🙂 Christopher and I had already planned to visit family this weekend, but our plans changed a bit when Makenzie was hospitalized. We ended up splitting our time between hanging out with her at the hospital and taking my nephew out and about to keep him from going stir crazy.
Me with my Kenzie girl! This was Friday which was the first day she finally started to show improvement. I am going to just go ahead and say that it’s because I was there. Seeing her auntie was just what she needed. 😉
Saturday I was finally able to drop the mask (and occasionally the gloves even though I probably shouldn’t have). Kenzie was feeling much better and we spent most of the day playing with play dough, coloring, and playing board games. 🙂
Kenzie playing Hungry Hungry Hippos with her momma. You guys, my sister, Holly, is such a champ. Makenzie got sick while my brother-in-law was in NY for business so Holly handled the first couple of days on her own until he got home. Holly has always been such an amazing mom to her sweets kids, but it’s in moments like these that you see the depths of that love and devotion. And of course my brother-in-law loves his kids too! But I didn’t grow up bickering with him only to have him become one of my best friends as an adult. 😉
I don’t have pictures from Sunday, but she finally got to come home and we no longer had to wear the hazmat suit just to hug her, haha! Thankfully she is recovering so that’s super encouraging. Thanks for all your prayers for her!
