Happy 200th Post!!! March for Babies & Joel Update

First things first. I want to send you ALL a heartfelt THANK YOU for all of your wonderful well wishes and prayers. After a short 3 hour hospital visit, an IV, blood work, chest x-ray, and lots of poking and prodding, we are HOME.

His fever went down from 104.7 to 101.8, and they got lots of fluids into him. He was not eating or drinking yesterday, but he seems to be better today. He has a virus, a nasty one, but he's going to be just fine....just a little crabby for a few days.

We were REALLY worried because our Joel, and all of his sensory issues, hates to be held. Normally Joel is arching his back away from us, and screaming really loud. Yesterday he was completely limp and listless. It was terrifying to see him so completely not himself.

He had a febrile seizure, and they are confident that it was not linked to his series of seizures last fall.

Here's a picture of Joel when we first arrived at the ER (cell pic...sorry) Photobucket

Ok, on to happier things!!! Yesterday was the March for Babies.
Joel, Reagan, and Ethan were feeling under the it was just me and the baby girls. The girls were on TV for about 2 seconds if you watch WICU channel 12.
Josh was so excited!
I was bummed that we could not go as a family, but it ended up being a very nice day.

Here are some pictures of our beautiful Erie day:

Here's a picture of Laney at the start of the walk.
Addie hates crowds, and was scouling at the camera.
Ha! No pics of her.
This is the team t-shirt on Laney. We walked with the Bolte Family.
Go Team Isaac and Asher!!! The Bolte's served as the ambassador family
for the 2009 walk. They did a fabulous job!
Here's Addie in her t-shirt!

We marched down Penninsula Drive. This is the Waldameer Park
roller coaster that bridges Penninsula Drive.
Also on Peninsula Drive, which I did not get a picture of, is the
Tom Ridge Environmental Center.

The walk went down Peninsula Drive to Presque Isle State Park.
We marched from Beach 1 to Beach 6. Here are some beach pictures.

It was a beautiful, sunny day and I think the day went off wonderfully. Everyone seemed to have a great time, and there were TONS of people there!!! For more information about Erie visit: Visit Erie!

P.S. It's Ethan's 4th BIRTHDAY today!!! Pics and a tribute to come tonight!!!



Glad Joel is doing a bit better! What a terrible virus!

Your March for Babies looks like it was in a beautiful spot! We'll just be walking past buildings next week when we do ours.


I'm glad your little one is starting to feel a little better!

Looks like it was a beautiful day for the walk!


I too walked this year for MOD - I lost my triplet boys this past October nad November. Born at 18.5 weeks and 21.5 weeks. We walked in honor of our 3 angels. We formed a Team Angel Jaggears and raised $5620.00! We were very proud of our team this year. It was very difficut for my husband and I so I know how you feel. We are from the Dallas/Ft. Worth area so we walked at the walk in Ft. Worth. You can read about my journey and our MOD walk if you would like
