Whirlwind of a week..

Our crazy week is finally getting a little back to normal.. Whew!

Here's the play by play:

I took Keller to the doctor Tuesday because she had been running a pretty high temp for a couple of days, coughing like crazy (to the point she was waking up in the middle of the night to sit up and couh), runny nose, etc etc..

The doctor on call did a flu test, strep test, blood count and checked her out. His determination was it was a virus that just needed to run its course. I was told to alternate Tylenol/Motrin to keep her temp down.

Around 2:00 the following day, 104 fever again. Made another appointment to see a different doctor at 3:00 that day. She checked her out, did an RSV test, checked her oxygen count, and sent her for chest x-ray's. Her oxygen count was low so they did a breathing treatment before they sent us to x-ray.

She slept the majority of the waiting time..

Waiting to go back for her x-ray

They determined after all of the testing that she tested positive for RSV and had patchy pneumonia in both lungs. She was given an antibiotic shot and sent home with a breathing treatment machine, 2 prescriptions and a follow up appointment time for the following morning to determine if she was getting better or needed to be admitted.

Daddy stopped to get her meds and discovered a sweet bear named "cub" that needed to come live with us.. =)

Here's K with her breathing machine.

After her appointment Thursday morning, it was determined that she was looking good! She was fever-free and her oxygen count was up from 93 to 97.

92 and below = hospitalization, 96 and above = normal.

Thank you Jesus!

The princess set was a prize from our sweet doctor and nurse that took good care of us!

Thank you Ms. Tina and Dr. Wood!!!

She finally got her appetite back last night!

Today, so far she's had normal temps and has had a decent appetite. We are so thankful for all of your prayers for our sweet girl to bounce back from this nasty sickness.

The weekend smorgasboard

What a fun weekend!

First of all, ROLL TIDE! As you know, Bama won the national championship game! And what a game it was! They shut out LSU 21-0! Roll tide roll!!

This past weekend was full of adventures! Friday night, we had what Tyler likes to call "craft night." This means I have somewhat of a crafty project that involves use of he and his tools.. =) He was a HUGE help in the making of my photo props for Saturdays shoot! (Nothing like waiting til the last minute, right??!) Anywho, we made some really big initials out of foam that turned out fab! Check out the 'Featured Shoot' at to see our handy work come to life! So proud!

After we were done with the main letters and while I was slapping a coat of paint on them, Tyler built Keller an airplane! She was stoked! They went outside and flew it a while too!

Saturday's shoot went FABULOUSLY! We drove all over Mobile for this one! It was an absolute blast!! Seriously, go check out the website!!!

Sunday, Keller and I played hookie from church and got some things done around the house.. Here are a few shots of her being silly!

When Tyler got home, we decided to go shoot our guns. So, as we were getting things together, Keller came across the safety glasses.. And had to try them on!

And, then we went to shoot! What a blast! This was the first time I had ever shot a gun. period. I loved it! We spent a few hours out there since a wonderful family friend said she would watch over the munchkin for a bit!

You know the list I posted last week? 30 things to do before I'm 30? Yep, shooting my gun was one of them! =) Markin' things off ya'll! Woot!

We got home, and while we were watching the Broncos beat the Steelers (Go TEBOW!), Keller got her car stuck in her hair. So, hence the first "cutting something out of Kellers hair" experience.. =) Funny thing is you can't even tell!

I hope this day finds you blessed, friends! I know I am! God is my healer!
