Then and Now


Then and Now is a new blog meme by Secret Mom Thoughts. Basically it's a look back at how life has changed over the years. Go to her site for all of the info and join in the fun.


Then: Just 2 months ago Mae was hospitalized with a serious bone infection in her ankle. It hurt too much for her to even walk to the bathroom.
Now: After surgery, a week in the hospital and 4 weeks of IV antibiotics, the old ankle is good as new and the infection is gone.

The other day Mae asked if she could explore the upstairs of the barn. In her explorations, she found a great jumping spot with a soft landing. Who needs one of those inflatable jumpy things when we have a barn full of straw?

***True Blue Texan, you were right. Your words in a comment several months ago ("Before you know it, you'll be looking at her this summer and wondering how such a healthy child was ever in the hospital.") stuck with me ever since you wrote them and here is the proof that indeed she is better.

I am SO GLAD she is doing so much better! And I know how scary it is to have someone so little so sick.

I love these pictures of her jumping. I loved playing in the barn when I was young.

The regenerative powers of the young are truly amazing.

Every now and then you'll look at her a remember the hospital but don't let it get you down. Just mark it up to a reminder for how fragile and precious our little ones are. And how tough.

Glad she's doing so much better!
