Hello blog world. I have been M.I.A lately. So M.I.A. that I have not even been blogstalking my favorite blogs lately! My trip to the east coast ended on a sour note leaving a bad taste in my mouth and when I arrived home late Sunday night I found a very sick Peanut.

I had taken 2 days off of work for my trip and then had to leave work again on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to spend it with my Peanut. I am really upset to say she has come down with Pneumonia. The poor thing is miserable and my heart just aches for her. Needless to say, this trailmomma has taken a break from running.

The Peanut has started a round of antibiotics but things are not getting better just yet. Please keep your fingers cross and prayers coming. When a 20 month old coughs so hard she says "owie momma" you will realize how precious health really is and how much you wish you could give your own lungs if only to make them feel better for a few hours.

Unfortunately, we don't have any new pictures of the Peanut because she has not been in a photogenic mood so I will share an early one (or two hundred), a flashback if you will, to when she truly was a little peanut.

  1. Oh no. I'm so sorry the Peanut is sick. I am praying for her quick recovery. I know what you mean, when a little one is sick you wish you could just take the illness for them.

    Hang in there trailmomma, you'll be getting dirty before you know it.

    Get well soon Peanut!

  2. There is nothing worse than having a sick child. Emma had pneumonia two years ago and it was awful. She rebounded quickly and I hope little peanut does as well. Thinking about you and her!!

  3. Hey Pam! I'm enjoying reading your blog!!
