As I mentioned yesterday morning...I had a little visitor in pink.
She came the previous afternoon...complete with diaper bag hastily thrown together...and bottles and formula picked up enroute to Grammy's home. She was quite unaware of the impromptu sleepover that was arranged...all she knew was that her next meal was long overdue!
On Wednesday afternoon, Heidi was rushed to emergency with postpardom complications...and soon into surgery. When it became obvious that she would be unable to feed the baby, it was decided Maelyn would spend the night with Grammy. I was rather nervous about having my 9-day-old granddaughter for the night...one who had never had a bottle or formula. However, she is such a sweet baby...and really didn't seem to mind who was feeding her...or where the milk was coming from.
We went to the hospital in the morning...Mommy was not looking so good, but so delighted to see her baby. Her hemoglobin was dangerously low...and a blood transfusion was required. Last night she was released from the hospital...but it will be some time before she'll be back to her usual energetic self!
It's Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada...and I have so much to be thankful for! Today I am specifically thankful for the medical care we take for granted...and those who looked after our daughter in her need. I am thankful that Heidi is on the mend...and that she has a wonderful, caring husband...and an angel of a baby who slept through most of the drama of the last few days. And I'm thankful for all those friends who care...and prayed on our daughter's behalf.As the sun sets on each new day...let's remember to thank Him from whom all blessings flow!

And speaking of sunsets...last night as the sun was setting, a shiny black pick-up pulled across the field and parked behind our back patio.
Jeremy has a new truck and the grandkids are quite excited about it...and wanted Grammy and Grandpa to see their new set of wheels! Ryder was beside himself...what is it with boys and trucks?
