Return from the seventh level of Hades

door picc Above are signs that I hope to never see again on the outside of my door or above my my bed!! What a crazy ride this has been but thankfully both Eammon and I are home and feeling better and stronger each day.

I was asked by numerous people if Eammon and I were in the hospital for the same thing and the answer is no. Between us we had three hospital stays for three different reasons. My first ten days in the hospital was for pneumonia. Then Eammon was admitted for three days with a viral G.I. infection that had gone on too long and too far, causing him to be severely dehydrated and having all of his blood levels out of whack. A day after Eammon was admitted I was taken back to the hospital and admitted with C. difficile where I was in an isolation room for four days. Crazy, crazy, crazy I'm telling you, having both of us so very sick at the same time but amazingly and thankfully, Maisie didn't get any of it!!

We are also so very thankful for all the help we received from friends, neighbors, Moms in my Mom group and from my parents. We honestly wouldn't have made it through without all their help so a big thank you to all of them.

Now for some cute Maisie piccies because this blog has focused way too much on me and on Eammon and I being sick so now back to regularly scheduled programming. IMG_4570 Maisie loves snuggling with her Grandma.

Below are pictures of Maisie with our neighbor Mary. The two of them had a fun afternoon together baking and decorating cookies and by the smile on Maisie's face you can see she had a great time.

And finally a Maisie fashionista photo.IMG_4568Maisie dressed for school Tuesday morning because well, she's just so stinking cute.
