An All Around Hard Day

Today has been rough from beginning to end....

We had to say goodbye to Mimi today. Alex and I were both so sad to see her go. The three of us are of one heart and one soul. We are happiest when we are together. I will forever be thankful to have such a strong, caring, kind, loving mother who taught me how to be a good mother and a strong woman. Without hesitation last week she jumped on a plane to be here for me and Bug. She spent a week with little sleep and a broken heart as she watched her Bug struggle back from the brink of death and supported me in every way possible. Thank you doesn't even begin to express what it means. We will be counting the days until we are together again.

The new Lovenox injections stink! There is no two ways about it. The medicine burns and Alex is in tears as soon as he knows it is getting close to time. I cannot imagine doing this for the next 3 months!

To top the day off, Bug is asleep with a temp of 100.5. Which means we have to call the doctors and most likely start all kinds of tests to be sure he doesn't have another infection brewing.

This poor little angel has been through enough, I am praying that he starts to feel better and gets a reprieve soon.



  1. Oh Ali I am so sorry! I wish there was something we could do or say to make things better. Just know that you and Alex are in our constant thoughts and prayers!!

  2. I know how sad it is for Alex to see Mimi leave, and that is because as you said it, she is a piece of Alex's heart and soul. I just hope that you don't forget that Granpa has also a big part on Alex's heart. We love you, and we keep on praying for you all.

  3. This mkes me want to throw a tantrum...THIS IS NOT FAIR!!!!!! AND to see your mom go...oh so sad. I understand that so well. I have that same closeness going on with my mom, and then when she is with Garrett and me when he is in the hospital....sooooo much better when she is by my side!! I am praying for you guys. I pray things turn for the better very, very soon. Much love,
