Bellie is Sick :(

Our sweet little Bellie was soooooo not feeling well this morning.  So we went to the Pediatrician and she has a UTI and a high white blood cell count.  My poor sweet love had to have 2 shots of antibiotics - Ouch!!!!  Our AWESOME Pediatrician is giving us a few hours at home to try and get her to drink lots and lots or she will have to be admitted!!!!

She is drinking like a TROOPER!!!  YAY!!!!  YAY!!!!  YAY!!!!  I am pretty confident she will be able to stay out of the hospital!!  She will have to go back to the Pediatrician tomorrow for another 2 injections of antibiotic - YUCK!!!

This GIRL is something I tell you!!  This morning she was miserable, not picking her head up, not drinking, not eating, grunting and grimacing!!  It was awful!!  It was painfully obvious that she was in PAIN!!

And NOW, just 3 hours later look at her:

Enjoying some chicken rice soup!!!  

You can tell she still isn't feeling well but I PROMISE you this is AMAZING from how she was this morning!!!!  Thank GOD!!!!

So today we will just be relaxing at home pushing tons of fluids!!!!  Maybe even a nice long nap for three sweet little toddlers and one very tired Mommy!!!!!!


  1. Sending healing prayers for little Belle. UTI's are absolutely miserable, poor girl. I hope those antibiotics kick that UTI butt and she feeling sooo much better in a couple of days!

  2. Summer,

    I'm so sorry to hear that Bellie is not feeling well. Boy, oh, boy is she is trooper. She looks great in the picture you posted. Julia does the same thing with her fingers, as Bellie is doing in the pictures. Too cute. We will be praying for a quick and full recovery.

  3. Sending our PRAYERS for BEAUTIFUL BELLIE!!!
    and for her FAMILY aswell!!!

  4. oh Miss Bellie!! No getting sick in the Summer. Hurry up and feel better.

  5. Hello,

    I wondered if I could ask you a few questions about adopting in NY through Reece's Rainbow. My family and I are very seriously considering adopting through Reece's Rainbow also, but I wondered how you went about it being in New York State. We've had a couple agencies tell us that we need to work with an agency that's licensed here in NY - how did you find one that would work with the child you found on RR? We have a five year old and a three year old and we would really like to adopt through there if we can figure out how to go about that. If you have any advice you could share with us, or even the agency you're using if you don't mind, it would be SO appreciated!

    Praying for you and your family as you work toward bringing this beautiful little one into your home!

    Thank you so much,
