Stomach virus and Happy New Year!

Last night Lorelei started throwing up and then this morning she started with the poop! Her pediatrician said that there is a bug going around. So now I have it and John thinks he's getting it. LOVELY!
On another note, Happy New Year to everyone!

Merry Christmas!

I am so unorganized this year! I am ususally on time with birthday/anniversary cards and one of the first ones out with my Christmas cards except now I have a baby! I believe that my New Year's resolution is to get organized! Well I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! The next few days will be hectic I am sure so I probably won't get to post anything but I will get some pics up from Christmas and all. I also wanted to thank everyone again for their thoughts and prayers! We have been very blessed this year with Lorelei. We wish everyone a happy and safe holiday!
Love, Jess, John and Lorelei

First tooth

So John and I noticed on Monday that Lorelei didn't want anything to do with anything. She didn't want to be held, she didn't want on the floor, she fussed about everything. We finally got her to sleep. When we woke up Tuesday I decided to feel inside her mouth and I could feel something sharp! I was so excited, her first tooth. She obviously noticed it too because she kept running her tongue over it. It was funny to watch, she looked like a snake.
I am now sick and have a nasty cold but I would rather it be me then her. I have finished making and buying all my gifts and by Friday they will all be wrapped. Next on my list is to make cookies for work and daycare. Then I will be done. Hope everyone has a great week.

Christmas Photos

Since we've been home, Lorelei has been doing great! Still stuffy and a little whiney but no fever and lots of snot! Here are some pics of Lorelei we took last weekend. Billy Bob is my Dad's nickname for her.

Going Home

So we've been cleared to go home. She did awesome through the night. Her oxygen was great and her pressures were good. No more fever. Now we just have to wait for the paper work. We'd like to thank everyone for their prayers.

Palmetto Health Children's Hospital

So we've been admitted to the hospital because Lorelei has RSV. I had brought her to see the Dr on Wednesday and she was diagnosed with a cold. She spiked a fever yesterday and still had a slight fever today. I happened to talk to the nurse at Dr. Bonnett's office at work and she said to bring the baby in to be tested for RSV. So John brings her in and yup she has RSV. So he admits her to the hospital. She probably will only be here overnight as long as her oxygen levels stay good. They also put her on Amoxicillin because she has an ear infection.
I will update tomorrow with more. Have a good night!

Cardiology Day

Today Lorelei and I went to see Dr. Shuler, her cardiologist. Her pulses and pressures were great! The ECHO was fun because she did NOT want to cooperate. Dr Shuler said that everything looked good except that the pressure going through her aortic valve was higher then the last time we went. Which means that her aortic valve isn't growing very well. Usually when this happens the heart works harder to get the blood places and the heart muscle gets thicker however her heart muscle is perfectly normal! Dr Shuler wasn't too concerned and we are going back in 3 months for another check on it. There will be a possibility of another surgery or 2 if her valve does not grow but for now we aren't concerned with that.
Please send up your prayers for her valve to start growing. I am going to have a chat with the valve, I know it won't listen to me but I can hope.
Hope everyone is having a good week.....this weekend I will be able to finish up shopping and hopefully get my Christmas cards out.

Back Home

I did pretty well. I only called home a few times. She did well too. I came home to her babbling and saying DaDa and getting up on all fours trying to figure out how to crawl. I guess I will need to baby proof soon. Hope everyone had a great weekend.

So today I am going out of town and going to be away from Lorelei for the first time. I will let you know how I do on Sunday when I get back. Have a good weekend!
