The hummingbird.

The little hummingbird was finally able to come home from the hospital Saturday afternoon. We follow up with her doctor on Tueday and we still have to go to Stanford since they have better specialists there that can hopefully figure out what’s going on with my little girl and her low blood sugar.

For it to pop up out of the blue since she was 6 weeks old is just odd. One of the doctors we had said that maybe since the hummingbird is a tiny girl and doesn’t have very many fat reserves (which is where glucose is stored) there’s a possibility that when her body is under a lot of stress or she’s really sick and not eating, it might be the cause of low blood sugar.

My hubby and I are on high alert with her and I’m hoping within the next few weeks the anxiety that comes with the thought of her having to go back to the hospital will mellow.

It’s so great to have her back home (and I never want to have her away from me again), sitting on my bed, coloring and watching Peppa Pig. As you can see, Penny is keeping a close eye on the hummingbird.



The song below was music therapy for me while my baby girl was in the hospital. The guy and the octopus in the video fall in love but I’m pretty sure the message isn’t bestiality. :^)

    I hope you get the answer you’re looking for. She actually doesn’t look that tiny from the photo, just very gorgeous with all that hair. Welcome home hummingbird!!

    I hope the Stanford folks give you some answers (I am very familiar with their halls, as my husband just had a stem cell transplant there in January). As her Mama, you are the Hummingbird’s very best advocate, so deep breaths and use your “outside voice” on those Drs if you have to ;-P

    Here’s hoping you find the answers you need. She’s such a beautiful little girl, that Hummingbird.

    Bestiality?!!! I shall of course now have to watch that …

    A relief to read that she’s home. She’s really gorgeous, like a little doll.

    So glad she’s home! I hope all remains well now that she’s home and that you can spend a lot of time snuggling up with her.
