My niece, Eloise, had to be admitted into their hospital's ICU earlier this week. She has a very sensitive respiratory system and my sister thought she might have croup. She was coughing so much, had a high fever and was extremely fatigued. They took her to the ER early one morning and they admitted her to the ICU to be monitored, given meds and breathing treatments and an IV. You can read more about it HERE. My sister even included pictures...oh sweet Eloise. She wouldn't take off her galoshes!
While Cory and Devon were with El, someone had to take care of Dinah! My mom and Madelyn went on Thursday to stay with her and the Mad and I went up early yesterday. Although I was not happy about the circumstances that brought us there, it was nice to spend that time with Dinah!
She loved playing with her Max-in-the-box (over and over). I loved catching her giggles after each time Max popped up!
Madelyn and Dinah played "Dinah Says"...
Reading books together...
In the above photos, you will notice that Dinah was wearing shorts. My sister had also layed out pants for her in case it got chilly. When Dinah found the pants...she insisted that she wanted to wear BOTH the shorts *and* pants! Madelyn and I were happy to oblige...it was cute and made us giggle!
Eloise loves to play on her stomach like this! I loved seeing Dinah taking after her older sister...
“I have one desire now - to live a life of reckless abandon for the Lord, putting all my energy and strength into it.”
