Prayers for Penelope…

This is the hardest post I’ve had to write so far in my three and a half years of blogging. I want to share what has been going on in my life and why I have been a little MIA. On Thursday February 18th, my daughter Penelope had to have an emergency surgery to fix an issue she was having in her intestines. We spent the next day and a half recovering in a room at the hospital. Her body did not respond to the surgery how they had hoped so on Saturday morning she was transferred to the intensive care unit. From there, we were off to another emergency surgery to see what was going on and why her body wasn’t responding. After this surgery everything seems to be going much better. Penelope has had a breathing tube in since Saturday and we are still in the intensive care unit but she is responding well to treatment.


The last couple of days have been really hard for my husband and me. Watching our 8-month-old girl be in so much pain on Friday and Saturday morning was not fun. I can’t believe that Penelope and I went from being at a pediatrician’s office to an operating room at Children’s Hospital in the same day. We have been really lucky to receive so much support from our family and friends. The hospital and staff here have been amazing. Please say a little prayer for my Penelope.

    There is nothing worse than seeing your child in pain and knowing you’d give anything just to trade places with them. Stay strong for your sweet girl. You are in my thoughts and I’m sending lots of love.
