This is how we saw Tate for the last 3 days even at points the last 7 days. Not his usual peppy 2 year old self. The top picture shows his little bandaged foot where he got his IV after 6 tries, and 3 nurses. That has probably been the saddest part of it all seeing him get pricked over and over again. After 2 visits to the ER this week, 9 total tries for IVs and so far one night hospital stay he is starting to act a little more like himself. He tested positive for rotavirus last night here at the hospital which is a virus that just has to run it's course but because Tate has had vomiting and diarrhea for a week on and off he has become dehydrated which is what makes this so bad. I just talked to the doctor and we are not sure yet whether or not we will be released tonight or will be staying another night. We will keep you updated. Let's just say Robbie and I appreciate your continued prayers as it really has been a tough week. We are saddened and very upset at times but praying that God grows us up and makes our family bond stronger through all of this. At the top of the page are some pics from the hospital! My favorite part about our stay has been two things...the fact that Tate only wants to be sung Jesus Loves Me (or "Oves me" according to him) to fall asleep and secondly that we had one nurse who happened to be a nurse that we had last year when Tate was hospitalized..she's great! Oh and one more thing the fact that they make sides that come down on the cribs for mommies like me who liked to crawl in and sleep with the munchkin! Enjoy!

This is the little guy that gives us so much joy! Tate has been sick since last Sunday, vomiting, fever etc. It hasn't been an easy week but he is so tough. Today we were in the ER for the second time this week. We went to Medchek first but then they sent us to the ER right away. Tate has now unfortunately learned how to say ER! Scary! I watched as he got stuck 6 times trying to get an IV in him. The nurses thought I was an emotional mess...oh wait, I am...because I kept crying as he got stuck and screamed out ouchie, off, no! It was quite a sucky time! Well, we are at home and Tate continues to rest and be a trooper! This little guy teaches us a lot about being tough! He's great and he keeps us going! Hope you enjoy this pic from his Easter egg hunt! By the way, for all of you praying for our family as we deal with the loss of our baby, thank you. We really covet your prayers and appreciate your support and understanding of all our emotions and needs!

I am sad to share this but since I shared that we were expecting a little one in December I need to share updates. Robbie and I found out today that we have lost the baby. Please pray for our hearts as we are sad and for me as I go through the physical pain as well. Thank you friends and family we love you all!

SO in case you didn't get the memo from the videos we are expecting a baby in December. We are super thrilled! Tate will be 3 in November and we are excited that he will be at such a great age to help out and Lord willing be potty trained haha! Well, we would love your prayers for this new little one as he/she grows and develops! Have a great evening!
