An Update on Miss Lorelei



Hello everyone. I hope you all are doing well. It has been a long couple of weeks here. I thought I would just try to pop in quickly, though, and give you all a quick update on Lorelei. The good news is we got the pathology report back and the tissue they removed was benign! YAY!!! The bad news is she has not been doing so well since her surgery. We still aren't sure if it is related to the surgery or not. We have been back and forth to the doctor's, emergency room and have even had another overnight hospital stay. She hasn't been gaining weight (in fact she has even lost an ounce since last week), and the poor thing has been through so many tests and has had her blood drawn several times and been hooked up to an IV. I don't want any of you panicking - it is not anything life-threatening, and in fact today was the first day she finally has shown some improvements so we hope the new medicine they started her on yesterday is helping. I will try to give you all another update soon but it has been extremely hard to get on the computer these past few weeks.

Also, I am about two months behind on e-mails. I had planned on spending the first two or three weeks after Lola was born not worrying about anything Dear Lillie related but then planned on diving in to catch up on e-mails and blog posts and tutorials. Well, needless to say, that hasn't been possible. Even with our shop closed and not doing many blog posts we still receive quite a lot of mail with questions and I don't want you all thinking that I am being rude or don't care. Unfortunately, it has been nearly impossible trying to find time to take a shower most days never mind write e-mails. Please know though, they are all saved in our inbox and eventually, once we get Lorelei better, we will start getting to work on them so I promise you will all get a response, I just don't know when it will be.

I do have some plans for some tutorials including some photo editing ones as we have been getting quite a few requests for those. I am not sure when I will get to those but I hope to have a few more guest posters over the next few weeks and then hopefully we will have Lorelei nice and healthy and life can return to normal here!

Thank you all so much for your prayers!

  11. I'm so happy she's going to be fine. The last thing you need to worry about is email. I wish I could be your neighborly, grandma type so that you could get a shower or a nap more easily. I hope you have some help. Take care of yourself.

  13. Hi Jennifer, I'm a quite new follower, but I've read with joy the news of the birth of little Lorelei. I'm sure that soon she will be totally OK and you all will enjoy some relaxed family moments. As a mother of a 2-years old girl and as a mother to be (I'm expecting my second child) I know that family is the most important thing, so don't worry about the blog, we are all her waiting for you!

  25. Thank you so much for this update, bless your heart! Y'all have been through a lot lately.

    Jennifer, chuck those e-mails, send 'em to the trash bin, and don't give it a second thought.
    Seriously!
    Spend time with that beautiful family of yours, that is truly all that matters right now.

    Love and prayers to you, my friend. :-)

  26. Your baby is most important right now. Lola, and Lillie, are priority. Everyone else can wait. You will be grateful one day way down the road if you always chose them first now. I have four children(I had four under five!) I had no time except for them. So, I understand the struggle just to find time to shower! Now, mine are young adults/teens and still need alot of attention...just a different kind. I don't regret still choosing 'Mothering' over everything else. It is a huge job that requires patient love, but the rewards are priceless. I will keep your sweet baby in my prayers. Love to your family. ox

  27. One more thing...

    my first born began losing wt. within the first weeks. I was breastfeeding and he wasn't able to latch on properly. So I began pumping milk and feeding it to him by a bottle. It took two months till he was able to breastfeed and a month to gain wt. I know his wt. loss was for a different reason than Lola's but I just wanted to share that he recovered. It was so scary that he was losing so much wt. And the Doctor's made the fear worse. It often gets worse before it gets better.

YOu just had a bably and have sweet little Lillie who needs you too... you are a blessed Mommy! Each moment is so precious with them. You are very missed, but we all understand.

    My very very best thoughts and prayers are with you.

  30. Thanking the Lord for the good report. I know from my own experience and also with grandkids how stressful it can be for a few weeks when a new baby arrives. I know it must be extremely hard when there is an illness added. Praying for you for strength. Gail

  44. I'm glad the path report came back negative and I hope sweet Lorelei continues to improve. What a scary time for all of you. And if you worry about even a single email or order I will drive down there and give you a good stern talkin' to! You are right where you need to be, focusing on just what you should be focusing on...your family! Anyone who has a problem with that isn't worth fretting over in my book!

  45. Hello Jennifer, So sorry for the struggles you are going through with your precious new baby. We are keeping you close in our hearts. PS - Had to "re-follow" because one of the glitches I've been having with Blogger is that it says I'm not following any blogs!

    Warmly, Michelle

  47. Praying for baby Lola. Hope she is getting better, bigger and stronger every day. Your blog is so helpful to so many. Don't worry about the online email stuff. Real time with Lola and Lillie are the most important.

  48. I am praying for your sweet little Lorelai. She is just as cute as can be. I hope you are soaking up eery single minute and taking time to just "be" with your family. There is not an e-mail in the world more important than that.

    I LOVE the photos below of the girls together. My Harry was very sick as a baby and would not gain weight either. It can be stressful. He is a very active, happy adorable, brilliant 10 year old now.

  49. Lifting you and your family in prayer. The emails can totally wait!

  50. Aw, poor little Sweet Pea. I usually just lurk around (in a good way) but wanted to say that I am sending you and your family hugs and praying for more and more good news!
