My weekend

Friday I spent the day getting ready for the huge adoption event on the East side of Cleveland (about an hour from my house). At 4:30 I received a text message from my BFF that her 1 year old little girl was life flighted to Metro Hospital in Cleveland. Needless to say the world stopped for me at that moment. My BFF (Liz) told me to get a hold of her mom for details. I tried calling but she didn't answer. Shortly after that Liz called me, told me what happened and asked me to go to her mom's to get Ayden, her 3 year old son. By the time I got to her mom's house her mom had already made arrangements for Ayden to go to someoene's house while her, Liz's dad and Liz's husband went to the hospital. Liz was at the hospital b/c she was in the helicopter with her daughter.

So, what happened... very long story short but Madde (my BFF's little girl) was standing behind a 4-wheeler trailer with her brother Ayden. Ayden being a typical 3 year old was playing with he pin that keeps the trailer gate up and pulled it out. The gate fell and crush Madde his 1 year old sister. Madde has a cracked skull and swelling on the brain. She has been on machines to help her breath, to keep her paralyzed and sleeping.

I did go up to the hospital when Liz wanted me to and was there until 1 a.m. Now mind you I still needed to get some paper work ready for the adoption event on Saturday and I had to bath dogs.

My sister in law came over and bathed all the dogs but one. That was actually very helpful but I still didn't get to sleep until 2:00 a.m. and had to be up at 6:00 a.m.

The event went well but my full heart wasn't in it b/c of Madde. She is still in the hospital and the outcome of how she will be is still un know so if you could keep your paws crossed and many prayers for her please do.

The event went well. 5 dogs went to their forever homes. We raised over $500

I was exhausted after the event but it was good and we will go back next year.... requesting two booths however.. lol they were pretty small. And ONLY magnets sold... nothing else so next year dogs and magnets are all I will take.

Sometimes being an ICU nurse is not fun like now. Many prayer for your BFF's daughter as well as son. Glad your event went well.
