Help Lovely Lydia
Hey everyone! WOW, has it been a rollercoaster ride! For a month and a half we have been working with a certain bank branch in Charlottesville (who shall remain nameless; it's the branch we have the problem with not the bank itself) who has been giving us the run around, not returning a single phone call, and not doing anything they said they were going/ needing to do. After, a month and a half of non-sense I went to the bank in Winchester, VA and told them everything that was going on. Out of respect she did not say the words "they messed up" but she had no idea why they didn't just do a "donations" account and why they put a hold on it. She did some digging, spoke with the bank we had been dealing with and then went over top of them to the regional manager and took care of the problem in literally 4 days. She unfroze the account, and ended up not even having to make it a donations account, she left it as "Lydia's Account" and now once we get our Bank Card WE WILL GET TO PAY THE BILLS!!!! I can't believe it! So far it is looking like we will have enough to cover all the bills or at least thus far. Lydia has twice as many doctors' appointments then other babies her age and I know at some point someone will be out to check her development and see how she's coming along but by that point we will be able to afford all the cost on our own thanks to all of you! I just can't wait till we have the current debt off our back, It been stressing me out! Now, for more good news! Lydia is doing amazing! Her hair is really starting to come back now; thick, brown and beautiful! She is always smiling and/or eating, and has really started to enjoy keeping her mommy and daddy up at nights! I like to say she does that because she just LOVES spending time with us! LOL Now, we also have some giant updates: While we were in the hospital it really showed us how important it was to get back home with our family and friends in Charlottesville, but even I didn't know it would happen this fast. A job opened up in Culpeper working for my same company and same job. I applied, got it and have now been here for 2 weeks! (PS I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT HERE IN THE NEW OFFICE! I am the happiest I have ever been!) Our house is currently on the market (hopefully it will sell fast!) and my hubby officially is unemployed starting today and will be home with the girls until we find a daycare and a job for him. So if you know of any openings, feel free to let us know! Even though this will not be our ideal setting, it will be getting us steps closer to our dreams of owning a house near all of our friends and family ïŠ We couldn't have gone through this whole Lydia ordeal without all of you guys and I can't imagine a better place to be then with family and friends!
Now you are updated on everything! It's been an eventful 3 months but our dreams are coming true! Thank you everyone for all your support, love, donations, help, hugs, kisses, messages "¦..EVERTHING! I love you all so very much! You mean the world to us. Thank you for being you!
I want pink Bike, I want Pink Boots, I want Dora. Please. Hi Rudolf! Hi Santa!
I asked Lydia if she wanted to write a note to Santa and she just smiled at me, so I figured that was her way of politely telling me "No, Thank you". After we wrote the letter we put it in our mail box. We are hoping tomorrow there will be a letter in the mailbox for Caroline from Santa since Santa mail works pretty fast! Anywho, I am super anxious for Christmas! I have never wanted it to be Christmas Eve so bad in my life. I want to see the look on my babies face when she sees the presents under the tree and I can't wait for our parents to come spend Christmas day with all of us. Its truly a Special Year in more ways then one!
There are still kids in the hospital for Christmas soone thing I would like to ask all of you is to pleeeeease pray for those Children! I hope every one of them has a miracle and enjoys their special holiday! It still breaks my heart thinking of all the childern suffering from health problems and their parents that may not be able to hold their babies for Christmas. I pray for all of them! As Always, so much love from our family to yours!
So happy y'al are home...Your a sweet family..So Happy Lydia's illness is better....Happiest of Holidays to you and your families..

We are going through the same thing right now at University of MD. Our 4 month old was diagnosed with botulism on November 24, 2013. He was ventilated for 10 days before he self extabated himself. We are out of the PICU now and trying to get back to feeding and having core and head muscle strength before we can go home. It has and will be a long road but at least we are reassured that with this toxin there will be no residual effects. Keep strong and know that God will lead the way. Please let us know if there is anything we can do.
Praying for your precious Lydia , she's beautiful and so innocent. I as a parent can't imagine what you guys are going through. May god lay his healing hands upon her and the UVA doctors. And also upon you guys and her family. Keep your faith . God bless.
