Maggie Moo's Gone to the Zoo Again...

Maggie giving Daddy her "big girl lips"...SO FUNNY!

So it was a Saturday morning and I roll over and asked Josh what he wanted to do today. First thing out of his mouth...I want to go to the zoo! OKAY! I love the zoo and since Maggie is loving animals more and more, I knew she would love it as well. So we got up and got out the door. It was the, Josh, Maggie, and Lyndsey. Lyndsey is such a kid at heart and I thought she was gonna pee pants when I told her we were going to the zoo! We are loving her as part of our family!

How great does Daddy look!!! So stinkin' cute!

So off we went. The weather could not have been nicer. It was crowded, but it was a Saturday so we expected that. All of the animals were looking beautiful as ever. One of the giraffes even came up so close like he wanted us to pet him. He was beautiful. Maggie just stared at him. (Kerri, I am pretty sure it was Congo the Giraffe!! hahaha)

I have to say that of course my child....her favorite part was all the WATTTTIEEE...which Maggie's way of saying water. She LOVES water and if it is within a 15 mile radius, she knows it and gets so excited about it. She literally stood at the fish area where there was a little waterfall and just had a ball for at least 10 minutes and screamed when we pulled her away.

She is so fun these days. She knows certain things and words and boy will she tell you about it. We are working on patience daily...all of us. She loves to be outside and as long as she has about a cooler full of snacks (snnnnaattcck), she is a ball.

All in all, it was a great day that provided tons of memories. I was telling Lyndsey that Maggie came to the zoo when she was in my belly, and a couple of times since, so I was so excited to see her interact and point to the animals and wattttieee of course.

And just a Maggie UPDATE: She is doing so great! Back to her usual self! Thank you again for your prayers and thoughts for our family! We loved them! We will keep you posted on her health!

Maggie's Sick Part 2...

We returned to Dr. Keith Thompson yesterday afternoon. He ran several tests including a flu swab and a strep test, just to be sure that those things were not going on. Honestly, when we (Josh, Maggie, JuJu, and I) got to the dr. office, Maggie seemed to be more playful and upbeat. We got back into the room and she was talking and be silly, which was a huge blessing to see. All of the tests that Dr. Keith ran came back negative so he just recommended that we stay the course with the Motrin and Tylenol routine that we already have going, which is around the clock. He is just thinking that this is a viral thing, but they are culturing all of her tests to see if anything grows over time. I would say since about 4:30 yesterday that Maggie has been fever free. She was getting back to herself last night including shaking her booty and telling Dexter Dog to HUSSSSHHHH DEXXXTTTTYYY.

This morning she is right back to her sweet self. Her cheeks have great color and she has been playing and being silly since about 6:30 this morning, since Dexter decided to go in and check on her. Dexter, while I often act like I can't stand him, loves this little girl as if he were her daddy. He has stayed right with her since she came home from the hospital and even slept under her crib while she was napping. This morning he wanted to see how she was so he went into her room and scuffed his feet to wake her up. She was thrilled and screamed with excitement saying HI DEXXTTYY. She then proceeded to jump in her bed until I got in there, which was a great sign of how she was feeling. She ate a yummy pop-tart and some milk, has used the potty (GO MAGGIE!), and has been making pretend phone calls all morning.

We are so thankful for all the emails, texts, and phone calls to check on Maggie. She is such a special little girl. I will keep everyone posted!

Maggie's Sick...

Just asking for prayer for my sweet Maggie. Long story short and for now I will just give you the quick update. We went out to eat last night for my brother-in-laws birthday and Maggie went into a febrile seizure and was transported via ambulance to Hendersonville Hospital around 7:30 last night. When we arrived at the hospital her temperature was 104.6. We were given a dose of antibiotic, Tylenol, and Motrin and sent on home for her to rest. She ended up having between 2-3 mini-seizures because her temperature was so high.

...Maggie at Hendersonville Hospital...

We are at home today just resting. Her temperature has been up and down but up again as high as 104.1. We are returning to Dr. Keith this afternoon at 3:00 to follow-up with him. Please pray for our sweet girl. She is just pitiful and it is such a terrible feeling that we can't take her pain and hurt away.
