Not for the faint of heart.

Being a mother, that is.

We had an unexpected trip to the doctor this morning for this little girl.
Not fun at all. She has a UTI...which is tough to diagnose until you get a pee sample which is hard to get from an almost 3 year old because it hurts.

But she did better than I expected. And hopefully in 10 days, this will all be behind us. (hmmm...could the pool be the culprit???)

I do not like going to the doctor. It surprises me how well I do taking my children for check-ups, shots, and the occasional illness. (I fainted once after having a TB test...the summer before I went to college...shhhh....don't tell anyone else!) So it surprises me that I can hold my child calmly without getting weak and light-headed when they have to get their shots.

I hate seeing my children in pain...and I am thankful that God heals and that He has gifted doctors to help ease pain and help in His healing.

What are you thankful for today?

Hey! I had no idea you had a blog! I'm so excited to read up on you everyday! I found your blog through our statcounter.

I'm sorry about Hadleigh's little illness...hopefully she'll be well soon. I can't believe how grownup your kiddos are...they're adorable. And I can't get over Hadleigh's hair color. She looks like her mama now. Just precious.

Miss and love you...I can't wait to read your blog.

Aww...poor thing! and poor mama. I hope she's all better soon. UTI's can be nasty business.

I never think about that, about people having a hard time going to the doctor. (I'm in nursing school, so I'm around it all the time and have taken my OWN blood before.)

cute pictures.
