Memories From Four Years Ago......

One of the things I look forward to every morning is see 'My Memories' from Facebook over the past years. The following pics are from the NICU four years ago and seeing them again just made me smile.

The NICU nurses made Name Cards for each baby.

Trystan was a princess then and she is a princess now!

Ah, our Kailey!

Long arms and long legs - then and now!

Just 12 days after Harrison was fighting for his life, he was moved to an open crib!

He is the best natured little boy and has the most grateful heart and spirit that I have ever seen!

I just love this photo!

Then there's Logan! Our little peanut!

The smallest of the four at birth but a mighty spirit!!

Logan has always had such beautiful eyes!


I continued to struggle today with my toe and now my stomach. I think the antibiotics are making me feel like I have been kicked hard! Most of the day I have been in bed. Not sleeping because my sleep is all messed up but just in bed because I don't feel like being anywhere else.

Summer had an appointment with Dr. Crawford here in Irving  this afternoon to get injections in her feet.
I am so sorry both my daughters suffer from foot problems just as I do.
She went through the drive through lane at Casa Taco and brought us a late lunch.
She was in such pain that I suggested she take a nap in the guest room before going home.
She said the doctor was hoping I would NOT be in the hospital come Friday.
I hope not, too!!

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Philippians 4:8

I have so much to be grateful for and I am trying to think on my blessings tonight.

No matter how bad you feel looking at the photos of those sweet babies has to bring a smile to your face. I too hope you see some improvement by tomorrow.

Sandra said...

so glad you shared these adorable precious memories. i love the cards they made for them.. sorry you are still feeling bad. hope you and your daughter are better soon.. and back on your feet

Susie said...

Linda, It's so hard to believe so many years have passed since the quads were born. I loved seeing them babies again. Poor Amber. My heart breaks for her, she's so good. Two of my daughter feet hurt them too. I think it's too much time on them on hard flooring. Linda, I love that even in pain , you count your blessings. I am praying for you. Bless all of you, xoxo, Love, Susie

Hugs to you! I hope the pain lets up and your stomach settles. Nothing worse than hurting in more than one place

Believe me some antibiotics are worse than the cause. I hurt my hand with a deep wound, they gave me a strong antibiotic and it was awful. The side effects gave me more suffering than my hand. Took awhile to get over as had to let it get out of my system. I understand what you are saying about the feet.

Ginny Hartzler said...

I love your NICU memories of the quads, and your thoughts and observations on each one! Each is so different and precious. Those ARE long arms! Antibiotics can really make you sick. It also helps to take probiotics so you do not get diarrhea. I am praying hard that they will work and no hospital!!

Carole said...

Linda, I'm singing You Are My Sunshine in my head and hoping it will help you be at ease. You are a whole lot more than your toe! All the best from Carole's Chatter

Debbie said...

Oh Linda I am sorry your not doing well. My tummy is sooo easily missed up in antibiotics you have my deepest sympathies. Praying you feel better soon! Those quads are sooo sweet and I loved seeing the pics from when they were born.

Carol Slater said...

Such adorable babies! Sorry to hear that your daughter is suffering as well as you.

Gypsy Heart said...

Precious, adorable little ones! It's amazing how they've changed and grown. I'm so sorry you're having a difficult time ~ I totally understand. My back puts me out of commission at times and yes, it's very challenging not to be able to do all we want.

Sending positive, healing energy your way!

Kelly said...

OMG! Does Summer have plantars fascitis? Is that a cortisone shot she was getting? I'm so sorry to hear that both of you have had so many health problems with your feet. I've had a few myself but nothing chronic (thank goodness). I hope that you start feeling better very soon.

Jedidja said...

Love the little ones. Do you feel better now. Best Wishes from Europe.

Beautiful photographs of the babies, can't believe how tiny they were. So sorry for you feeling rotten with the antibiotics, they can be very tough on the tummy X
