Oh my! How VERY scary. Glad to hear she's on the mend. Was it the flu or something else? Yikes.

Anita A

I'm happy that she is getting better. Being a mother, I can't imagine something like that happening to my child. You, your daughter, and your family are in my prayers.


Marge: Nothing but positive thoughts and prayers headed in your direction!!! Glad that everything is on the mend.

Carrie P

God is so good....

OMG-how absolutely scary that had to be for you. Happy that she is doing better-prayers for continued improvements.


Dear Margie,
So glad to hear that your precious Brooke is doing better. What a scary thing for a mom to go through. I love the photo of her with the cheetah snuggie..you are a wonderful mom. I will send some prayers for strength, recovery and good health for Brooke your way. Blessings to your family that she is getting better. xoxox tena

I am glad to hear she is doing better but still sending prayers your way!

oh, my goodness! what an ordeal. so glad she's better.


How scary for you!! As a mother that travles for work alot, I totally understand how you must have felt. One of my worst trips started with my son being sick and me traveling with "the big boss" on an important trip. My heart ached as I got on the plane and I couldnt focus until I managed to fly home early, knowing I'd see my baby soon. I spent the next two days holding and caring for him and being thankful he was okay. Best wishes to you and your daughter, I wish her a speedy recovery.

Sending prayers your way. SO HAPPY she's on the mend!!!


Truly frightening and as mom's we second guess every decision. Don't beat yourself up, last year my daughter went from perfectly fine, to admitted for pneumonia within 36 hours ( although not as serious as Brooke ). It is a white knuckle trip.... I am adding all my thoughts to you and your family and hope that Brooke will continue to speed through her recovery now!


Oh Margie--I can only imagine how frightening this experience has been for you, Brooke, and your family. I'm so glad to hear that she's on the mend, but I know how much something like this can shake your foundation. You are such a strong woman--and I know that that strength is pouring into Brooke to make her whole again. Love to you, Sweets!--Cath


Great to hear she is feeling better!! I learned on the way to my wedding....to write the plans in pencil and give God the eraser! You are such a lovely mom...happy to hear she is better and see pink in her cheeks! :o)
Continuing to send you positive energy!


Here's the thing: at the moment when you are at the very tippy top of the roller coaster, right before the big plunge, I want it to be you sitting next to me. We can scream together.

Love ya.



Keeping you and Brooke in my prayers. It is so good to see the smile on her face, is such a snazzy snuggie too. Praying for her to mend quickly and regain her strength! Hugs


prayer works alright...and as for your gut instinct - i always trust mine cos i know how in tune i am with it!!!! follow that feeling!!!!

glad she is on the mend now!!!


glad to hear brooke is on the mend!


oh how scary for you, poor sweet girl. hope she's feeling a thousand times better.


Margie...how scary!! So happy she is on the mend. We almost lost our daughter at 6 months of age then again at 5 years old. She is nearly 13 now and I will never forget the fear I had. It still brings me to tears.

Prayer DOES work!!:)

PS. My Emma has that same snuggie:)

Terri C

Lifting you and your family up in prayer! God is the great healer and will be with Brooke. God Bless you!


So glad to hear she is recovering and is pink...it's one of your fav colors, isn't it?
We will keep her and your family in our prayers. They are amazing things, prayers. :)

Thinking of you and your family!


I just came over to check out your site for the first time. I am Considering going to spark this year and read this post. My heart so understands what you are going through. My Mother nearly died last year from complications from CLL. I am so touched by your words and honesty. There is just nothing like a Mother/Daughter love and bond. Know I am sending lots of prayers you and your families way.
