Oh, where to begin...

It seems like so much has happened lately that I don't even know where to start! Last week I promised to take Maeve to Monkey Joe's so she could run around and play. Well, in the morning, she was complaining that her chest hurt, that she was sick. She seemed to be having a little difficulty breathing so I called the doctor. They told me to bring her in and they would fit her in sometime that day. Well, we get there and upon seeing how she was breathing, they pull every nurse and doctor away from patients to look at Maeve! They hook her up to a machine and see that she is not even close to breathing the way she should. Maeve is panicking and crying she wants to go home. Could you blame her? There was a bunch of nurses, the doctor and 2 firemen there, all waiting for an ambulance to take her to the hospital!! We get there and she is put in the pediatric ICU, where we are told that she will probably be for up to a week. Um, hello?! What the heck happened? Maeve doesn't even have a runny nose and here we are in the ICU! She was totally cracking me up in the ambulance though. Poor thing was so exhausted from trying to breathe that she was falling asleep. The EMT guy kept trying to talk to her and lifting her eyelids, which was not going over well. She was telling him "I am NOT waking up!" I wish I had my camera. BTW, I have to just vent for a second and tell everyone that if an ambulance is behind you, with the sirens blaring and the lights flashing, GET OUT OF THE WAY!!! I cannot even tell you how many people were oblivious to us. Anyhow, it turns out that Maeve only had to spend one night in the hospital because she rebounded so quickly! It turns out she had the beginning of an infection in her lungs and adenoids. We are home now with a breathing machine and she is MUCH better!! I also want to say that I have some really nice friends. My husband was called several times to see if he needed help with anything and just to check on us in general. (I was in the hospital with my baby the whole time, naturally!)
