Waiting...

I sit here waiting to hear from my husband who has Peanut in the ER. J was working on an assignment for his training class when she woke up wheezing and coughing. She woke me up from a dead sleep, that is how bad she sounded. I got her coat on while he got out of his pj's and he took her to the ER. At the time it sounded like a good idea for him to go with her but now that they are gone I can't help but feel like I should be with her. I know that he is her daddy and he loves her and will take care of her. This is the first time he has done an ER trip without me. I'm feeling pretty helpless and so not able to go to sleep. I feel like calling the neighbor to see if they can come over so that I can go be with her and send J home. I'm so torn. I totally trust him to be with her, that is not it, but I'm the mama. Only I can comfort her in that special way. I hope she isn't scared. I pray she is ok. I love that little girl so much.


I just got off the phone with J and he said that as soon as they walked in they took her back and gave her a breathing treatment and they are going to watch her for a few hours and then send her home. I think I can fall asleep now that I know she is doing better.

I'm so glad she's okay. Does she often have to get breathing treatments?

Hope your little one is doing better today than last night - breathing problems can be so scary!

I'm so glad Peanut is okay- and know how you must have felt! Being a parent is difficult in sooo many ways!

Being a mom and allowing our husbands to step in and help us seems so unrealistic (cause we can handle it all)...that is until we fall apart!

It does something good for a man's self esteem when we allow them to step in and help us!

Glad your child is okaY!!
