Doing well

Tomorrow is going to be a rough day - but I think a good day. The memorial service for Nora is tomorrow, and I feel like it will help, but also just be a hard, hard day. You all have helped make it better by sending some beautiful flowers - and I must thank you all for that. It was just signed the ALI community - so a big hug to you all!


Maggie is doing beautifully. She eats about every 3 hours, and gives us a big lusty cry when she is ready for attention, which we love to hear. The only issue she has is a pretty nasty diaper rash as she had diarrhea from the IV antibiotics. But that is clearing up really well too. Today, I took out the vibrating seat that we used with Cameron - thinking I would maybe put her down in it. Aaron came into the room and laughed at me around 4 PM this afternoon - he said 'Good job using that seat today, babe' - as this is where Maggie spent her day:


That is my lap.

aww - hold her all you want, soon enough they walk away :)

lots and lots of love coming your way - you're on my mind and in my heart.

Just where she should be, right Mommy?

Still thinking of your family and praying for all of you, each and every day.

I, too, am sending a big hug for you tomorrow- will be thinking about you. I think she is sleeping in the perfect spot- just where she should be.

Pat said...

Lots of hugs to you and Aaron and Cameron and Maggie. Will be thinking about you tomorrow.

Just an aside.....if her diaper rash doesn't clear up or gets worse, she might have a yeast infection....girls tend to get them more than boys. Try Lamisil and it will clear it right up, especially since she had those antibiotics.

Kristie said...

She looks so sweet and comfortable in your lap there. You'll be in my thoughts tomorrow.

Jennifer said...

Praying that you have the strength you need right now. I am so very sorry for the loss of your sweet Nora. So very sorry honey.

KT said...

Oh Cece! We all love you so much. So sorry that Baby Nora has passed. Please know that you are loved and you are safe. Nora will hold a place in our hearts forever, as she is your daughter. You have such a strong will, determination and huge amount of love- it is awesome. Please give Hulk and Maggie kisses from me.

Sister- I love you and your family.

You are an amazing woman, with out a doubt.

Much Love- KT

Sending a lot of love and will be thinking of you all, especially Nora.

For the butt rash, Bobby had a serious one and we used Triple Paste. Cleared it right up.

she is gorgeous. If the rash doesnt clear up, try cloth diapers, some babies are extremely sensitive to the chemicals in the sposies

(((hugs)))
all my words seem too small to encompass the depth of my sadness, and my admiration for your strenght.

weebug said...

what a sweet photo. my thoughts are with you today, and always.

Deborah said...

Awww, sweet picture. And like Sara said, it won't last forever, so cuddle all you want.

I didn't read this until Sat night, so I'm hoping the memorial service went okay for you.

For diaper rash - shea butter works well, and my son's daycare teacher said she's had several kids who do better in store-brand diapers (WalMart, specifically), because they're less perfumey.

Awwwwww....I think holding her makes things a little bit easier. Enjoy this time.

I'm so sorry it's been touched with sadness too, thinking of you as you go through this tough time.

Bittersweet really.
