Just a bad day...

Well we spent the whole night in the ER with Kennedy last night. I thought she was having an asthma attack, but it actually turned out to be pnemonia. We got there at 9:30pm and we finally got home about 2:45am. It was such a crazy night. She's sleeping right now and hopefully will take a long nap and feel well rested. She's back on breathing treatments, an oral steroid and an antibiotic. Will this ever end for her?!?

Right before we left for the ER last night, we found out our neighbor, Lloyd, had passed away earlier that day in his home. His son is thinking it was something sudden...maybe a heart attack. He was such a good man, probably in his 50's or 60's, very healthy, rode his bike everywhere and he was always outside working in his yard. It's so hard to believe that he is gone. He was so sweet to the kids and often bought them little gifts here and there. He gave them each an Easter basket last year, which was so sweet of him. Please keep him in your prayers today and his family as well.

To top it all off...it's my 30th birthday today. What a day for a birthday! If Kennedy is feeling ok this evening, then my mom is going to come over so Chad and I can go out to dinner. That will be a nice break for today! My real gift comes at the end of April...Chad and I are flying to Orlando and taking a cruise to the Bahamas for 4 days! I can't wait for that...
