Sorry I have been so MIA lately. As many of you know Joshua had a VERY severe allergic reaction on Thursday afternoon that had us rushed to Children's Hospital after Urgent Care couldn't stabilize him. his O2 levels were low, his face swollen-eyes nearly swollen shut, hives all over his face, chest and back, and a rash that went to his knees. We spend Thursday night and most of Friday in Children's Hospital and were send home with a bunch of meds, unaware of what he is allergic to. Friday night and Saturday morning were uneventful but we still struggled with a rash covering Joshua's face.
Saturday night ended us back in the ER after Joshua had another reaction, a mild one but we rushed in quickly. They changed a med he was on and it seemed to help him much better so we were sent home. The only thing wrong with this new med is the side effects. Joshua is moody and has had a few violent outbursts. They told us this is normal and he cannot control it. He will scream 'ahhhhh' and be ok, but he is also kicking, screaming, punching, and throwing. This is SO out of character for Joshua.
We go into the allergist today at 1pm to have him tested to find out what he is allergic to. Right now we have NO IDEA what it is, therefore we cannot protect him. They told us that this could be fatal so we need to be on top of this....NOW! We are equipped with an epi pen jr and covered in the Father's love so we know we are going to be ok...
HOWEVER any and all prayers would be greatly appreciated!!

We are up north, 2.5hrs from home, again this weekend so that I can do a newborn photo shoot for Molly and Adam. I am excited, as this is my first newborn photo shoot, but if the photos turn out at all like her delivery ones (that I took and LOVE!!) then they will be great!! I wanted to share the news of new baby Essie with you all, but unfortunately that is not why I am posting this now...
Oh I wish I had my camera still right here! Her head is tilted back, mouth open, blankie tightly tucked around her-truly a priceless picture. I look at Madelynn and can't believe that my baby girl is 17months old today. It has been nearly 1.5 years since I held a baby within and I miss it so much! Especially when Madelynn is still and quiet. For those of you who don't know, Madelyn is an active little thing. She started rolling over at 2.5months and was crawling on her hands and knees at 4 months, first steps at 8months and running at 10months. I didn't have a baby for long, so in these quiet moments I reflect on Miss Moo. I have truly been blessed with this little girl, with Joshua too. Speaking of which....
Well, I should probably wrap this up, my MIL just came out to the car and informed me that dinner will be ready in 10mins! Madelynn is still snoozing away in the back seat, mouth opened, head tilted back and snoring away. Oh I wish I had my camera....
