In Christ Alone, my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled and strivings cease
My Comforter, My All-in-All
Here in the love of Christ, I stand!

Somebody knows our favorite color!!!

It may not be obvious in all the photos, but Gigi was a REALLY sick lil’ cookie on Easter last Sunday! The day before Good Friday, I took her to the Pediatrician for an unrelated issue….while we were there, her doctor noticed her runny nose and suggested we do a quick screening for RSV.
Um….sure…. Why not since we’re here.
I was SHOCKED when the call came a couple hours later that Gigi had indeed tested POSITIVE for this yucky virus. After watching her battle feeling MISERABLE for several days, I began to understand exactly WHY Evie and her compromised immune system qualified for Synagis her first two years of life….those immunizations against this virus that cost upwards of $2500 per month!!
RSV is a beast!!
Her misery was amplified by the fact that I took her back in on Monday worried because she had cried all weekend, and discovered that the poor thing had a double ear infection. Ouch!! It was so unlike her to just whine any time I put her down and fuss no matter what we did to console her. We had a rough go this week, but she is finally back to her sweet, easy-going, happy little self.
