Awesome Mom

Oh dear! I hope that things are not as bad as they seem.


Thanks, AM. Me, too. Although keep in mind that I am sleep-deprived and thus less able to figure out how this might turn out A-OK-false-alarm-never-mind. Also I should have mentioned that Annika is in extremely good spirits, despite not being allowed to eat anything since she had a few fruit snacks in the ER yesterday evening. I hate to say it, but that girl seems to think that going to the hospital is a total party. They have Body Part Bingo!


Moreena - I'm so sorry you've been clobbered again. Praying for all of you. Much love xx


So sorry, Moreena. I'll be praying for A-OK-false-alarm-never-mind. Keep us posted.


Praying for you all and hoping this is all seven has in store for you.


Oh, Moreena,

I'm so sorry to hear your news - and my fingers are crossed that this will turn out to be a false alarm. At least Annika's in good spirits (body part bingo!).
Keep strong. You've fought these bad, bad, bad things before and won, the same will be true this time too!


keeping Annika in our thoughts...hoping that this hospital trip is a minor pit stop!


Oh Moreena - I am really praying and hoping for Annika and your family.

Auburn Gal Always

crap. this really sucks. I am praying for Annika - and all of you.


Stupid seven. I'm sorry.


Oh Moreena.

I'm sorry. I'll keep you guys in my thoughts and prayers.

Aw, damn.

Fingers crossed for that A-OK-false-alarm.


Dammit, Seven. Keeping you all in my prayers for the best possible outcome.

Here's hoping it's a false alarm! We'll be praying for her and your family. Speaking from Danny's seven year old mind during last year's hospitalization, Body Part Bingo ROCKS!


Saying my prayers for you all...


holding y'all in my thoughts and prayers



Just wanted to let you know that I ran into Annika & Joerg at the Brown Family Life Center this morning. She was so sweet with a "Hello Jennifer," and seemed to be very busy playing and trying to identify the mysterious plastic foods. Joerg seemed to be doing well and I offered to get coffee, but he had a chance to get some for himself this morning. See you later - Jenn

well, this does suck. glad annika's spirits are high, anyway -- that's a good sign.


I am so sorry... I will keep you all in my prayers.


Oh, not the post I wanted to see here when I noticed your feed had updated. Hugs to all of you, and I'm sending out my good wishes to the universe for not-so-bad results.


I'm so sorry, and will keep you all in my thoughts.


Oh NO. My chest tightened hard as I read this. I hope for a quick recovery and an easy solution. CRUD on the odd.


Wishing you and your family lots of strength and hope.


((( whole fam ))))


I have a heavy heart for you. Kisses to Annika from the internets!

Falling Down, November 2004

  • Balloon in hand, my 4-year-old
    twirled across the kitchen floor,
    singing nonsense words
    in her own key.
    "It's my gift!" she declared
    to the world at large, which
    was really only me,
    sitting at the table. Enough
    twirling, and she lost
    her balance, tumbling
    to the floor in a theatrical
    slapstick of elbows and knees.

    She lay on her back
    for a few seconds,
    at the textured ceiling
    with the mysterious
    spaghetti sauce stain.
    Suddenly she
    flapping her arms and legs
    there on the floor, as if to swish
    the imaginary snow
    into a snow angel.

    "Falling down is also a gift!" says she.
