Charlie Bear here. Back when Mom Peep had that horrible first year with me she lost her beloved big dog Rex and also her Mom. (When all of that happened, I’d run to the top of the sofa with my stuffed turtle or squirrel and wait things out.) Her mom lived up in Wisconsin, where many of her family lives and where she had an early Christmas with loved ones this year.
Now, her heart is back in Wisconsin, but not her body. She’s here, but kind of not here. And that’s why I’m writing today–to ask all of you to help Mom Peep.
See, her little 6-week-old Great-Grandbaby Hailey has been in the hospital since Friday fighting a terrible respiratory infection, pneumonia, and potential organ shut-down. Tiny Hailey’s lungs and heart and kidneys are compromised and she’s fighting for her life. Mom Peep is so very proud of Hailey’s mommy and daddy. They have been wonderful parents and there was no way of knowing this was coming.
What Mom is having trouble with is she isn’t there. She can’t go to the hospital, hold vigil by Hailey’s bedside, hug Nick and Kaitlyn, provide comfort in any way. She texts, and phones, and watches the Caring Bridge site CONSTANTLY for updates. She prays nonstop and writes notes of encouragement on the Caring Bridge site.
Many of you have gone through something like this. Any words of advice for Mom? She would greatly appreciate it.
Wiggles of love to you and kiss your loved ones extra long tonight,
P.S. If you go to the www.caringbridge.org site and you want to watch Hailey’s progress you have to sign in and then look up Hailey Bruley. Mom appreciates ALL prayers.
