Violet's $5,000 a night stay!

Violet spent the weekend in the hospital, she got the flu and was fighting it from both ends. On Friday morning my mom suggested I take her to the doctor. They ran some tests and told me she was severely dehydrated and needed to be checked into the hospital. I immediately took her to the Utah valley hospital and spent two days there! My wonderful mom came to the hospital on Saturday and helped me with Violet until they released her! I am so grateful for my wonderful family they all helped us out so much! Evan brought me dinner on Friday, Allison watched my kids (yeah with the new baby and all) and all their prayers! I saw firsthand the power of prayer, and know that we were blessed!


This photo makes me so sad!

Trying to take her IV out!



She pretty much slept for 24 hours! Poor little angel!

James came at night and brought a care bear Dorothy insisted she have!

When she started feeling better she decided to manage her own IV!

The exact thing happened to us when Ally was 2. It was a month after I had Natalie, Ally got Roto Virus(I know that is spelled wrong). She was in the hospital for several days and I couldn't leave Natalie, so Allan had to take a week off of school because we didn't have family around to help out. It is so sad and hard to see a helpless little one in that hospital crib! I am glad Violet is doing better.

I'm so glad she is okay now! Poor little girl. That is cute of Dorothy to make sure she had her care bear!

I am glad to hear she is doing better, but what a scary thing! Times like these really make you glad you are close to your family!

Tricia! $5000 a night??? oh my heck...
That photo that makes you sad, makes me sad too. She looks like she is not doing well in some of those photos. I am happy it's all behind you.
still not so happy about the $5000 deal... ugh!

I'm glad you guys had lots of help. Poor Violet, she looks so defeated in those pics.

Oh, I'm so sorry! That is not fun at all to have little babies in the hospital. It is scary and sad. We've been there too. I hope she is better now and back home!

Probably not what you had planned for Conference weekend. So glad she's okay.

That poor sweet little girl. So glad she is feeling better though.
Those cupcakes you made are so cute, you are a fun mom.

Poor little angel! Maybe she wants to be a nurse and she was just practicing the whole IV pump thing?

Yuck!! That's so sad. Lucy got rotovirus when she was about 15 months and it was AWFUL. We didn't take her to the hospital (no insurance-- students!) but we probably should have. I'm glad she's okay now and that you had lots of family to help.

Meg said...

Poor little Vi!!! Glad everything is okay and on the mend. See you on Friday!

Poor little thing! I am glad she is ok. That is so scary. When I stayed overnight with Kellan in the PICU, it was like the saddest place on earth, that and the pediatric oncologist office. I made me realize how lucky I am, and how amazing parents with really sick kids are.

wohoo, so when she is a teenager and she asks what you have ever done for her, just show her the hospital bill! and say, "nuff said!". hehe. I hope she is doing better, no fun watching them in the hospital.

Heather said...

Poor little Violet! She's so darn cute, even when she's a sickie. Give her loves from us!
