Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
You want the good news first, or the bad news? I feel like people usually want the good news first so I’ll start with that.
Good news: we were finally able to bring my sister home from the hospital early this evening. She’s going to be on lots of medication for the next few days and will need follow-up visits with our pediatrician and the hospital, but she should be just fine. Thanks for all of the good thoughts and prayers!
Bad news: we came home to find that her twin sister had a cough, fever, and was taking those same short, quick breaths that landed us in the hospital with the first one. This twin’s fever spiked to over 103, so it’s been a waiting game all night to see if she needs to be rushed to the ER. Luckily, her fever did come back down to 101 so the pediatrician told my mom to hold off on the hospital and bring both girls in to the office in the morning. Please keep this little girl in your thoughts now too.
A whole lot unfolded after we got home from the hospital and our family is just going through a lot right now… I just can’t believe how much we’re dealing with right now. I just want to curl up in a ball and sleep until next year.
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
