Hospitals are no fun....

when it's your baby that brings you there!  Our little Taryn has not been feeling good since last Tuesday, so this past Monday I brought her back into the doctor to see what was going on with her.  Her oxygen level was low, she was running a high fever and she was really working hard to breathe, so they sent us to Scottsdale Healthcare Shea where we were admitted.  We stayed there until this afternoon when they sent us by ambulance to Phoenix Childrens where we are now!  They just thought that she needed a higher level of care, and childrens PICU was going to be the best place for her!  She is finally resting after a really rough day, and I am hoping that she continues to behave throughout the night!  It has been so hard on me to watch her struggle and to be so uncomfortable!  And even though it is unfair to all the awesome docs and nurses, it has been really hard to watch her be suctioned so many times and to be poked so much!  I have had to leave the room on several occasions.  She has gotten so used to being 'tortured' (as she would put it if she could talk!) that she cries when she just sees the yellow gowned people coming towards her!  My poor baby!  It is kind of funny though watching her kick her little chubby feet and legs when she is so unhappy about something!
It has been hard thinking about my other kids who are being taken care of by family and friends while we are here...I know that they are being taken good care of, but I miss them, and I'm sure they miss me!

Thank you to all our family and friends for all the prayers and well wishes, and for taking care of the other kiddos at home!  We are so blessed to have such wonderful people in our lives:)  We are hoping for a good night, and an even better tomorrow, and hope to go home soon!

Here are a few pictures of our little spunky sweetheart!
