Drama Drama

Well, little miss Hazel sure keeps us on our toes. Our sweet little girl just turned three. I think her birthday is always going to be hard for us. We miss Lucy and we wish she was here to spoil too.








Luckily her birthday fell on a Saturday and her dad was able to be home with us (he only gets one day off a week.) We ate breakfast at the cafe in town, walked around and went to the farmers market. Then we went and saw Monsters Inc. 2. The kids love going to movies. We had an awesome storm that day but luckily it cleared up enough to let balloons go for Lucy.






We missed being with family and going to the cemetery but I think she was with us anyway. Hazel has been talking about Lucy a lot lately. We were in the car tonight and she randomly started saying, "goodnight Lucy, goodnight Lucy." She'll talk about how her and Lucy are the same. We watched the parent trap (the old school version) and she was glued. It reminded me of how Lucy would get while watching Mary Poppins when she was in the hospital.
Today I took Hazel and Ivy to the doctor for well child visits. The kids were super excited to go because they thought they were going to see their dad. Oops. He actually does work at the clinic we went to but not today.
Well everything went pretty well except the doctor noticed Hazel had a murmur. I was a little concerned since no one has ever heard a murmur before. She brought in the attending and he listened too. He told us he wanted an EKG and called cardiology to see what they thought we should do. With our family history they think she needs to go in. I'm actually feeling a little relieved we're getting her looked at. I'm always worried there might be something wrong with her heart and she's never really had it looked at. Hazel passes out sometimes when she cries and it always makes me a little nervous it could be heart related. Cardiology she call next week and hopefully we'll get this looked at soon.


Luckily though, she loved all the attention.

Losing a child is one thing. Very painful and emotional. But I think that losing a twin child must be the cruelest of all. :-(
Releasing balloons for Lucy's birthday is such a beautiful gesture!! ;)
My gosh, what an experience at the doctors!! I do hope that Hazel's appointment goes well!! I am praying for there to be nothing wrong with her heart!! Keep us posted, please!! ;-]
Happy, happy, happy birthday to Hazel, my Beautifully Unique Kindred Spirit "Cranio" Friend!! ;-D

How scary! I'm glad they are going to check her out. Millie had a murmur when she was first born (it's gone now) but it still scares me that something is wrong with her heart too. I hope everything goes well! I always think about sweet Lucy.
