Happy Days Are Here Again

It has been a rough week at the Hoover household.  Elena ran a pretty high fever for 5 days and then we spent Saturday night in the emergency room.  I changed her diaper to discover blood, and in true hysterical momma fashion, totally freaked out.  They ran an ultrasound and x-ray, did blood work, and re-hydrated her with an IV.  Fortunately, everything is ok.  We are home, the fever has broken, and my smiley girl has come back to me.  It was a sleep deprived week for me and I felt helpless.  I knew my girl wasn’t feeling well, because I didn’t see that gummy smile for about 6 days, but it is back in full-force…and it has done more for me than a long afternoon nap!

Elena likes to search the floor for streams of sunlight that she can make shadows in!  As soon as she sees one she makes a beeline for it!

Ava is still trying her hand at feeding Elena.  We haven’t had as many messes, but it still isn’t pretty!  Oh well, both my girls are enjoying it and hopefully Ava will get a little neater soon — who am I kidding, the girl lives to make a mess!

We are getting ready for Elena’s MRI next monday, and to say I’m nervous is an understatement.  She hasn’t had any more seizures, so I was hoping the neurologist would say we didn’t have to do this, but no luck there.  We have to be to the hospital at 6 am, and they will have to put her under anesthesia, so everybody think good thoughts this week.  Like everything else, I’m sure she will be just fine — and I have curbed my worrisome nature for the most part, but it is still there creeping around the back of my mind.
