Clothed with Grace: The Hardest Part

The Hardest Part

Being a mom is hard. It's not the cleaning, laundry, or always being needed. That part is exhausting at times, trust me. The hardest part is having a sick baby and not being able to do anything about it. Hannah has had more ear infections than you can shake a stick at, and after the last one we scheduled an appointment to get tubes, crossing our fingers that she'd make it until then. Well, she didn't. She got another ear infection, went on meds, a few days passed and no impromevent. She had to get the rocephin shots again, and it tore her little stocmach up, so puking started. It has seriously been an awful few weeks. She's generally in pretty good spirits, but when she's in pain it just kills me to not be able to take the pain away. Luckily, we are able to move her appointment up to next Tuesday and have directions to give her ibuprofen and Benadryl to get her though.

It's in these moments I find myself relying on God the most. I know he can take care of this and I'm thankful a spot for early surgery was available. No matter what we're going through, he is there with us! For now, I'm struggling my girl,  courting down the days until Tuesday, and trusting in God.


  1. Poor babe!! There's really nothing worse than having a sick baby. I hope you all enjoy Christmas and have an easy go until surgery on Tuesday.

  2. Sickness is hard, and yes God is good! Have you tried to remove cows milk and dairy from her diet? Many people have done this and it eliminates ear infections in children. It worked for us.

    1. She wasn't having cow's milk yet, so dairy was pretty limited. I just think it's bad genes, her dad and brother had lots of problems too :(
