hollyanne Posted December 29, 2005 Share Posted December 29, 2005 All - I gave a birth to a beautiful baby girl - Caroline Anne on December 20th at 7:54. She was 8 lb 2 oz of love. As many of you know my mom worsened substantially right before she was born -- and we induced the baby to "get her out." We have stopped all treatment for my mom and called hospice. I am so shocked at how fast this has all gone. I am devastasted. On top of this all (this may seem small) - but my Chesapeake Bay Retriever named Maggie was just diagnosed with kidney disease -- she is my constant canine companion -- we don't know how long she will be around and she is only 3 years old. I don't know how much more I can take... it is all so bittersweet. I know I have a lot to be thankful for....but some days keeping that attitude is next to impossible. Our hospice team is amazing - and I have great confidence in them....please lend me your prayers. A newborn, no sleep, my mom in decline and my brown canine friend sick is a lot for me right now. All my love to you, Holly Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
