My baby triplet Mary-Clare is in the hospital she went in yesterday for servere dyhradation. I'm emotionally spent guys. I have four kids and for the last 5 weeks i've had to miss work for dr's appointments leading up to surgery for mary-clare then the surgery then post-op then everyone of them got a virus and it's been a nightmare for me and my husband. We have family but they have there own family so i don't get any support or help from them. I have a nanny that i feel blessed to have but it's very stressful having to deal with all the scheduling of who's gonna do what between my husband, nanny and myself. I'm headed to the hospital again today my ped said she had'nt seen hypo dydration in 15 years.! The soduim in babies normally drops to 130 range and the normal high range is 145 my mary-clare's was 170! So she informed me she had to bring it down very slowly or it could cause brain damage! My mary-Clare has downs and she's a tough cookie whos' are ready been through 3 surgery's would my fellow memebers please keep me and my family in your prayers please. I did'nt post this on the community board cause it's personal and upsetting to me and i just felt like my family on wish would be all the support i would need. Thanks and i hope you all have a healthy weekend. I'm off to the hospital.

Already said a prayer and will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. Sounds like Mary-Clare has a Pediatrician that is very good, and that is reassuring. Keep strong and keep the faith. I wish I had more words of comfort for you. Sending a big dose of Prayers, pixie dust and Peace your way. {{{and a few hugs as well!}}}

My thoughts will be with your little one this entire weekend. PLEASE keep us update!

Sorry that I don't know a whole lot about you personally. But can I assume from your post that you have 'triplets'? and this is one of the triplets that is very ill? How old is she?

PLEASE PM me if you would feel comfortable doing so. I would like to send her a card and get well token.

{{{{{LOTS of Hugs}}}}}}}}}}}

You and your family and your precious little Mary-Clare (beautiful name, by the way!) are in my prayers! I am sure everything will work out fine and she will be home safe and sound very soon.

Hugs and blessings, TigH. xo

Got on my knees just now, and said a prayer for Mary-Clare.

Sweet babies like these are always under the careful eye of Him, and He will protect her & see her through this.

All my love goes out to her.

Best of luck

Sending prayers and positive energy your way.

I'll be thinking of sweet little Mary-Clare and the rest of your gang.

She is one tough little cookie! She's been through a lot, but it sounds like she always comes out fighting.

She's lucky to have such a strong and loving mommy, and I'm sure this helps give her strength, too. :) I hope you can get a little rest...

03-07-2003, 12:07 PM
Oh sweetie. I'm sorry that Mary-Clare is so ill. I just said a quick prayer that she is home soon and healthy.

{{{HUGS}}} for mom. We are always here when you need to talk.

Lots and lots of {{{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}}} for you and your family and especially little Mary-Clare.

I know a little bit about what you are going through. My daughter, Sarah, was born 7 weeks early, weighing 3lbs14oz. She got pneumonia when she was six weeks old and spent alot more time in the NIC-U. When she was 2, she was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. We didn't have family nearby either, but they were all very supportive via long distance.:D .

She's 21 years old now and the light of our lives. She has blessed us in too many ways to count.

Keep your chin up, and be sure to give and receive lots of hugs every day!

Thanks to all of you would send vibes my way. After I posted this morning i was off to the hospital shortly after i got there the dr. came in and talked with us. She said she did everything right by the book and she promised us she could not explain it but somehow mary-clare's soduim was back within almost normal range 149! She was utterly amazed and she examined mary-clare and said she looked so much better and she was retaking that blood work at 2 well guess what! We are healthy (for the most part) and home tonight! Thank you all so much for prayers things like this i'm glad she did'nt try to explain to me, something's are in a higher hand than ours and thanks agian to everyone who reached out with prayers and thoughts for my family.

Tammy, I just saw your thread, too, and wanted to add my prayers for the continuing recovery of little Mary Clare. My little granddaughter was just in the hospital last weekend with RSV, so I understand what you're going through. It surely is scary when the little ones are hurting! I'm praying that, day by day, you'll see your little one get stronger and stronger. Sounds like she's had her share of troubles in her young life.

And, good for you on the excercise! It kinda takes your mind off things for awhile, doesn't it? I'm a treadmiller, myself, and I just put the Disney tapes in the CD player and goooooooooooo.



273 days and counting . . . again!

03-08-2003, 08:52 AM
I just saw your post as well, and I am so happy Mary-Clare is feeling better. I will continue to send healthy vibes her way. It sounds like you have a lot of responsiblities. I admire you for even remotely being able to keep an exercise program with 4 kids. Try to get some sleep.
