Even with all the commotion of Lucy being sick me and Tyler were able to go to the Ellen show on Tuesday. The show actually aired on Wednesday. My mom watched Lucy while we were gone. It was raining and freezing we had to be there at 1:00 and didn't get to go inside till 3:30. Once we got inside it was awesome. They sat us right in the aisle. Ive seen the show enough to know that when Ellen is dancing she makes her way through the middle aisle and ends up on the other side right next to where I was sitting. I really didn't want to be on camera but I knew it was inevitable. There was a camera man right on me the entire time so I knew at some point I would be on TV but I didn't realize how many times. They did a close up on me for my reaction of the little girl singing (embarrassing). Then through out the entire show they kept flashing back to our area.

We were the 10th day of Christmas with Wolfgang Puck. He gave us some cookies from his restaurant. There was a photographer named Andrew Zuckerman on the show we got his book called Creature with a bunch of pictures that he has taken of animals. We got a year subscription to net flicks, a set of Ralph Lauren organic cotton sheets worth $700. Finally she gave us a sleep number bed worth $2500. Since me and Tyler were both there we got double of everything. Ironically we just got a new bed so know we have 3 king size beds! We think we will just keep one of the sleep number beds and sell the other two.

Lucy Loves to look at the pictures of animals.

So glad its over

Lucy was really sick this weekend. I'll fill you in on the details. Lucy was really winy and clingy on Monday and Tuesday then on Wednesday she had a really high fever that I couldn't get to go down. She woke up on Thursday with the fever and I could tell she was having a hard time breathing and she wouldn't eat or drink. I called the doctor and went in at about 2:30. The Doctor looked puzzled as to what she had. He said that she had RSV which doesn't really have a cure because its a virus. Lucy had RSV almost a year ago and baby's usually tend to get it only once but they can get a different strain of it again. It usually only occurs in Children under two. I went home and she took a nap. When she woke up I could tell she was a lot worse. Every time I gave her medicine to get her temp down and try to make her feel better I could hear the air in her stomach from the way she was breathing. Tyler came home and we took her to the emergency room. I sat in the room with her for a half hour with her crying the whole time. Lucy doesn't cry unless there is something really wrong so I knew that this wasn't normal. I could hear the doctor talking with the nurses out in the hall just chatting about stuff. The doctor came in and checked her for a minute and said oh she just has a cold. WHAT! Lucy had colds before and this was not a cold but she was the doctor so I listened. We went home and we were up all night with Lucy. Friday morning Lucy was still horrible. Tyler's mom came over for a while and helped me because I was supposed to go to LA to do hair and make up for a wedding I was debating whether or not to go but while Dayna was there Lucy seemed to be a little better. I left at 2:00 to go down to LA. Dayna came back over after work and noticed that Lucy seemed to be giving up. She still couldn't breathe she had a high temperature she still hadn't eaten or drunken anything. They rushed her to the emergency room. She got brought back right away her oxygen level was a 71% Its supposed to be at 100% with in 10 seconds there were six nurses around her with the doctor (a different doctor) yelling out orders. Lucy ended up having pneumonia in both lungs, she was severely dehydrated and had RSV. They sent for an ambulance to take her to Maderas children's hospital where we spent 4 days. Now we are home and Lucy is on antibiotics and an inhaler. Thank you everyone for the prayers and support. We are so grateful to our mothers for helping us through this whole thing and we are soooo glad its over!!

The first thing that Lucy would eat was a sucker.

She tried to plug her oxygen monitor into her monkey.

Happy Birthday Christian!

Stacie's blog inspired me to blog about how Awesome our nephew Christian is! Christian is the smartest, cutest, funniest, eight year old that I know! He beats me all the time in spelling competitions that we have. Who knew that pterodactyl had a silent letter. When Christian was little he always wanted to sit on my lap where ever we were. To know that if I were to marry Tyler that I would have such an awesome nephew really sealed the deal!
Christian has such a testimony of the church and has no doubt about being baptised. He is a good example to everyone. I'm glad that Lucy gets to grow up with a cousin that is such a good influence.

I'm so impressed how unselfish he is. He likes to be the center of attention but will always step aside to let his sister Elyse have the spot light.

That tarantula was found walking around in a field. Its not a pet!


He's not embarrassed to do silly things. I told him to pose like a mermaid.
