Granddaughter Count Down...

Mariah Josephine

We had a scare this week...Holly caught a stomach bug, from Dylan...another gift from daycare.
Holly was in a meeting at work when it hit her. Chad had to go and get her as she was so ill that there was no way she could drive home. I received a call from Holly, the baby wasn't moving as much as she should and they were headed to the hospital. Once there, it was determined baby's heartbeat was fine, but Holly was so dehydrated from being sick that also affected the amount of amniotic fluid. Our dear baby girl had no place to swim. After 3 bags of IV fluids and some medicine to keep Holly from being nauseated, the baby and mother are home and doing well.

So we have just over a month before we get to Welcome Mariah into the World.

Also heard more good news yesterday...
Meagan's husband, Erik, has a new job. He is an artist who works on designs for video games and before Christmas, the game company he was working for closed down the MD office quite suddenly. After an interview on Thursday, Erik received a call to inform him he got the job with another game studio.

Congratulations Erik!


  1. Pat,

    Sounds like good news all around. Glad that Holly and the baby girl are doing better and that Erik was able to find another job.


  2. Congratulations to Erik. It must be frightening to lose a job with a new baby on the way.

    I'm glad Holly is much better. That does sound scary. I'm sure Mariah will be a pretty baby but I don't see how she can top her brother for good looks. Dylan is a beautiful little boy.

  3. glad baby and mom are doing better.
    congrats on the new job.

  4. Happy to hear all is good! Can't wait till you introduce us to Mariah!

  5. Thank goodness your Holly is OK, and congrats to Erik for getting a new job so quickly! God has truly blessed him. (I won't even tell you how long I've been looking...)
    And: Looking forward to seeing Mariah. :)

  6. That was a scare, glad mom & babe doing fine now.

    Congrats to Erik to find another job so soon, unusual for these times!

  7. I am so glad that Mom and baby are doing well. That must have been an awful scare!

  8. Oh, my...that was quite a scare. So glad that she and the baby are doing well. Looking forward to pictures when the baby comes.
