It's me again.

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday!!

I'm still officially on my vacation but start shooting again this weekend and then easing back into office work on Monday. I peeked at my emails and realize I have lots and lots of emails to return so please hang in there while I work to get in touch with everyone who contacted me on my 3 week break.

Lots of changes coming up and I promise to keep all of you informed.

I wanted to update about my baby girl Maddy too, as I saw that many of the emails from you guys were asking about her.

Maddy spiked yet another high fever on Christmas Eve (just after a fun-filled Christmas Eve car accident on Stemmons, more on that some other time) which continued to rise on Christmas Day and ended with 106 fever, a febrile seizure, a call to 911 and a mad rush to the ER. We spent Christmas Night together in the ER hospital bed, hooked up to an IV of antibiotics and trying to calm her from all the needles and x-rays and tests. Nothing showed up and so today we had an ultrasound of her renal system (kidneys, bladder, etc) to see if there is something causing these crazy fevers. I should know something next week but it has been scary, if you all don't mind saying a little prayer that they will find something. I don't think there is anything worse than not knowing.

On a happier note my middle child turned 5 this week and I wanted to publicly wish my precious Gabby a very happy birthday. I can't believe it's been 5 years since my little girly girl came into our lives and brightened them every day since.

More soon! Thanks for hanging in there with me. Despite all the illness, it was great to have some time off!

I know you must be beside yourself w/fear and questioning...just remember, 'The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be STILL" Exodus 14:14 (emphasis mine). Be still and know that you arent alone when you worry/question for that sweet lil girl. I hope you can get peace in that...praying for answers SOON and clear easy explanation.

I hope Maddy's on the mend. Poor thing. I'll be thinking of you all.
