I should be holding my little guy at this time next week I am starting to freak out a little. My c-section is scheduled for 7:45. I can't believe it is time! I was thinking back last night of the year we had. I found out Sept 15 last year I was pregnant and we lost our angel on Oct 13. It is crazy how things were so terrible just a year ago and now we will be welcoming our rainbow baby! It is a bittersweet time for us!

Now if I can get this family well. Everyone has a nasty cough. Raylee woke up last night choking from all the crap in her throat. I was ready to take her to the ER, but my husband convinced me to just call first and see what they suggested! Of course they said she has the croup . They told us some natural remedies since she can not have any of the cough medicine. Around 2 we all finally got back to sleep and she slept the rest of the night. DH is just getting over it and I am just now getting it as well! It is miserable! I just hope we can all get healthy before next week! UGH!

How exciting! Sorry about the illness. There are homeopathis cough medicines that are safe for kids 2 and up. We like Chestal every 2 hours, as well as Hylands nighttime cold and cough. You have to administer them more frequently than regular cough medicine, but they are better than nothing.

That's so exciting! So sorry about all the yucks. Try putting Vicks on her feet and then socks over it. It really helps with the cough!

So exciting!!!!! So happy for you. We had two losses last year so this feels something like a miracle for us, too.

And we're getting over some really nasty head colds. Hope you're all feeling well and rested very soon.

Yaaayy, so exciting think about; hope everyone gets healthy by then. I lost a pregnancy the same month (November) the previous year before I had dd the next November. I still think of my angel every time November rolls around but I also know that I wouldn't have dd otherwise. it is bittersweet.

Sisters, friends forever
