My day summed up in 1's

I thought I would some up my day today in 1's. So, here it goes!

The number of hours of sleep that I received last night 1. (Collin was up in pain all night.)

1 tiny little cold or allergies that took over his body

1 sweet little boy that was breaking my heart as he had tears rolling down his face in his sleep.

1 pirate water party at our house that had to be canceled. (sorry guys!)

1 Doctor appointment that had to be made.

1 wonderful Nana that took Regan for the day

1 plate of chocolate cookies baked at Nana's house.

1 new medication the doctor prescribed for him.

1 car seat that had to be cleaned after Collin starting having seizures and threw up all over it.

1 afternoon of constant seizures and vomiting.

1 does of Diastat (Valium) that I had to inject in my sweet little boy to stop them.

1 wonderful husband that came home early from work to relieve my two cramping arms.

1 trip to Target with Regan to pick up medications.

1 good night story for Regan.

1 sweet little sister that is so great to her brother when he isn't feeling well. When she came home she kept saying "It's ok Bubba sissy is here!"

1 sweet and amazing little boy that has such an amazing tolerance for pain. Having to watch his little body go through so much is torture. These episodes are only getting worse and they terrify me.

1 basket of laundry sitting on my sofa that needs to be folded (throw up laundry :( )

1 very tired mommy that needs to go to bed! (yes, I know this is an awful pic. note the dark circles under my eyes! wink!)

Thank you to everyone that helped out today and kept calling to check on Collin. We were able to keep him out of the hospital this time and for that we are very grateful!

1 more day that I was able to spend with my sweet angel!!!

Hey Julie~
I thought my day was rough, and I was complaining about it...then I read your entry and decided my day was just fine. I'm so sorry it's getting harder with Collin. I am always amazed at how well you deal with your challenges. We will keep you in our prayers tonight, and I will call you tomorrow to see if I can come over to help with your laundry. Hopefully you and Collin will get some sleep tonight. Take care! We love you!

p.s. - Thanks for playing with Addie on Sunday. Brian said she was in love with you and couldn't take her eyes off you!

Hi Julie!
I think I'm going to have to agree with Kara! I seriously thought my day was in the crapper, but you are one tough cookie! I look up to you so much and you are a great example of love and strength! It seriously takes such a special person to be as good of a mom as you are! (I hope I can be loved that much!)
You are in our prayers and thoughts!
Seriously...if you EVER need anything...please don't hesitate to call me! (*I'm serious!)

Love you Julie!
