I was upstairs editing photos for a client, when I decided to take a break and go downstairs. To my surprise, not only was Jack cleaning up the dinner dishes, but Clara was helping, and it was just so sweet, so of course I had to grab my camera for some quick snaps. This is her first time helping with the dishes.
It's so great to see her feeling better. The last week and weekend were horrible for her. She was scary sick. She had and ER visit, and two doctor visits before we were able to find out that she has a UTI and bladder infection (and the poor girl had to go through 4 catheter attempts during the second dr visit.). Her fevers ran for days at 104.5, she was pale, shaky, blue lips, icy hands and feet, and projectile vomiting. She cried and screamed at times, and it was just heartbreaking. Luckily the antibiotics are helping her feel better, and she's almost halfway through taking the medicine.
My heart just adores her. Her messy face from dinner, her messy hair, because she won't keep her hair in a ponytail, standing here helping her daddy wash dishes. I just turn to mush. I feel so lucky to be her mom. She's a fighter, she's tough, full of sass, but so very sweet, and so full of love.
