Catching Up and More Savvy Photos

March 6, 2013

I don't even know where to begin with all that has transpired since my last post.
Reags had a little accident Friday evening while we were at my parents house that landed us in the ER around 8:30pm.
Long story short, she suffered a second degree burn on her hand.
They took great care of her in the ER... cleaned it, put medicine on it, bandaged her up, and sent us home.
I was given instructions to follow up with our pediatrician on Monday morning and by Sunday evening, she had started with a fever.
The minute the doctor's office opened, I called to make an appt.
Once we were there, they said they did not want to check the wound for fear of infection and they sent us to the hospital's burn center.
Everyone was very concerned about her high fever, but upon checking under her bandage, there was no sign of infection...thank heavens.
They told us it could just be a reaction to the burn, sort of like shock....since her body is so small.
While at the pediatrician's office, they checked her ears, throat, and listened to her lungs, just to make sure that the fever was not being caused by something else.

Here we are Wednesday night and the poor thing is still battling this fever.
I am pretty convinced she has some sort of viral thing running through her system.
The timing is just coincidental and for all I know, she could have picked this up while waiting in the ER Friday night.

Anyway, we have not gone too far from home since this all happened and obviously she is not going to school this week.
I just hope she is feeling back to her happy go lucky little self here soon.
It is not fun watching her like this and those bandage changes are tough on her....and on me.
Friday morning we head back to the Burn center at the hospital so they can re evaluate her hand and make sure we are still heading in the right direction.

I have so many things on my to do list but everything has pretty much taken a backseat.

There is a new website coming here in the next week or two at most.(that is why you see the 2 Hip Chics watermark)
A few months ago I started a 2 Hip Chics website but have never liked it enough to get it out of the draft mode.
After attending the Savvy Workshop, I came home inspired ready to get back at it and so I can get that baby up and running.
I will be unveiling it very soon. Things are finally coming along...finally.

I don't have any new photos of the girls to share, but I did finish up more of the workshop photos.
We had some incredibly beautiful models to work with.... and we were not going to let a little rain get in our way!

Aren't they so beautiful?
We were so lucky to have these wonderful and outgoing models all weekend.

They were not the only ones that had to step in front of the camera though...
All of us who attended the workshop had our photos taken too.

That is right, I actually had to put my camera down and let someone else photograph me.
(Eeeek.... I am much more comfortable behind the lens)

My Headshots

Thank you to the fabulous and super talented Kara May for taking my head shots.
I typically hate having my photo taken and am very self critical, but she worked some serious magic behind the camera and probably a little photoshop magic too because I am not sure this is exactly what I see when I look in the mirror, but I love the photos and will proudly display them where I usually post the photos of me with the camera in front of my face:)

Well, I think that was quite an update and enough for one post.
Thanks to everyone who has been checking in on Reags.
We have certainly appreciated the well wishes and the prayers that were sent her way.

Hi Lisa,

You did such an amazing job on these photos... simply beautiful! Reading about your workshop sure makes me wish I was going to the one you are leading this spring...

Anyway, I've been praying for Reagan and all that you're going through. Sending you lots of warm wishes for a healthy happy weekend for your whole family.

Love, tara

Aw, poor little Reags, I hope she will be feeling better very soon.
Lisa, those photos of you are stunning! Gosh, I wish i could look half as good in a photo!
And who'd have thought that rainy photos could look this good? Not me anyway!
Take care, hope all goes well on Friday. You seem to have great paediatric facilities at your hospital.
