Heart Sobs.

I am sitting here feeling completely exhausted. I took Aubrie to the hospital this morning for an ultra sound. She has been getting bad UTI's (sorry if that is too much info) but it's really painful for her and its sad as her mom to watch her struggle with this over and over. We had to take her in for some unpleasant tests to make sure her kidneys were not suffering. She was really upset by this, and naturally so was I. She cried, I tried to be strong. After the 30min exam we get to the car to find a flat tire. Aubrie was snuggled in my arms with heart sobs and I stood there...and couldn't stop the tears. I know that its ridiculous but I couldn't help it. Nothing is more upsetting than watching your children hurt. We will get our tests back on Friday and I hope to hear that the results are normal. Now I have the kids home, we have baked some cookies with Grandy (who so lovingly dropped everything and rescued us from the flat tire-thank you mom!) and are about to snuggle up and watch Marry Poppins. I think we will look forward to an early bed tonight.





(thanks mom for the pictures, I love them.)

Thanks for the credit! and you are very welcome for everything. Like you said - there is nothing harder than watching your children's pain, no matter how old they are. Anything I can do to help brings me joy and comfort. Like the Seawitch says " It's what I do - it's what I live for!"
You and Aubrie are so beautiful.

Oh, that breaks my heart!! I'm sorry you had a rough day - you and Aubrie. She's lucky to have such an amazing mom!

I feel your pain. Our hearts bleed for our children. My studio is my new cry room too. :)Sometimes we just need a good cry.

You look so pretty. You have changed so much . . . the long hair, the bangs, thin, and mature. It has been so long. These are beautiful shots of you and your little girl. I'm sorry to hear about your hard day. I have to agree. The suffering of a child is almost too much! Especially when we can't fix it and kiss is better. Wish we could come see you:0) You are still one of my best friends.
