Tough Week

I am absolutely appreciative with all of the inquiries I have been receiving, especially after posting the images from Wendy’s baby shower (link below). Unexpectedly, with the rush of emails received, I responded to as many as I could, but I know I missed a few as well and the reason why is very close to my heart:

I have been incredibly lucky to be a stay at home mom, but also to be able to run my business during the free moments. I try my best to prioritize tasks depending on the time of the day and day of the week, just in case you are wondering how I “do it all”. Being a mom is a 24/7 job,  especially when our little ones are ill. So, here I go:  Just at the end of last year, my son began having seizures when his fever would spike up. These seizures are called “febrile seizures” and they are supposed to grow out of them by the age of five (I wish it was by the age of two). We have been told that we should not be worried about the seizures, that they are very common, but this time my husband and I were very concerned. We had gone almost five months without a fever or a seizure, but just last week my boy had two within the week, which had never happened. If you have seen a seizure before, they are extremely scary while they are happening and even more so once they have passed. The main thing to do when our son has a fever is to find the source causing the temperature to spike up. We found the source of the fever, thought it would help reduce the fever, but it only caused another seizure to happen (this was the second one in four days). I became incredibly stressed trying to manage it all, and so did my husband. We were focusing on getting our son to feel better, that we forgot to do so many things, which for me included running my business. We had no other choice than to wait and hope/pray that our son would go back to being his little active self again. By the grace of god, he did become better and we were able to get back on track with our tasks. Once our son was okay, we ran into another issue: Our foster dog, Valentine, had reached my migraine pills from the counter while we were in the urgent care with our son. I had to call the organization he is with to see what we had to do. Of course he had to get his stomach pumped out, so I had to meet with one of their volunteers so they could get him to the vet as soon as possible. The icing on the cake, lol! Well, our foster baby is also  back to normal, but it is most certainly true what they say: “When it rains, it pours”.

Just yesterday for the first time since everything happened,  I felt that I finally had a full night of sleep. I am all caught up with emails, and I know this post is incredibly personal, but I wanted to share that I deal with the same stresses and obstacles of many. So I am extremely appreciative with those who waited patiently for a response, a receipt, an invoice, or a proposal. I love, LOVE, what I do as much as I love my family (fur babies included),  it truly meant the world to me that many of you were so understanding with my situation. And again, if you emailed me and I have not responded, PLEASE resend that message to me, I promise I am not ignoring you.

Side Note:

In the midst of it all, I collaborated with many amazing vendors in a styled shoot. I hope to share these images with you all very soon!

XOXO!
