My Savvy....My Reasons....{My Ramblings}

I wanted to take a moment and explain to those of you who read my blog and a regular basis and want to know...What happened?  I am delighted to have arranged to feature so many wonderful products this month and have so many giveaways to offer you!  Wooohoooo!  I promised to have a Giveaway a day every weekday for the month of November and I do....that is super cool!  But what is happening with my regular deal posts?  Well, Life.

For those of you who just started to read my blog I need to tell you a bit about my life.  First and foremost I LOVE it!  I am one of the luckiest Mami's in the world to the most adorable, sassy, fun loving little Warrior Princess, Savannah!  Savvy had a liver transplant at the age of 1 and we are to celebrate her 4th birthday really soon!!!  For a child who would never have seen her 2nd birthday without the miracle gift of an organ donation....turning 4 is {Huge}!

Our family "normal" is one that I am so grateful for but I know it is not the "normal" of most.  If you don't give your child medication that can poison her kidneys every single day of their life twice a day then....consider yourself super lucky...because that is something I do....and yet I am delighted to do so for it keeps her new liver happy :)  This medication keeps her liver happy but also suppresses her immune system so a little "something" can go downhill quickly.

Last summer Savvy had diarrhea.  This is pretty normal for a toddler....ours ended up hospitalized fighting for her life.  When I say I am grateful for every day with my child...I truly mean this and it is so real....but even with all we have been through when things are going well...I {kinda} get comfortable and almost kinda sorta forget (more like denial) that things can go south quickly.  So...why has my blog been different and not highlighting the daily deals...simply put Savvy has been sick off and on a great deal this month.  She has been put on a medication this last week that made her so hyper she is not herself.  Today she was diagnosed with Walking Pneumonia.  I love blogging...but I am a Mami first.  I will continue to do our daily {Giveaways} and reviews as I planned and some deals but my focus will be on Savvy and getting her better.

My hope is that this will be a 'bump' on the road ... I will keep you updated ... but please know how much I enjoy this blog and how wonderful I think you all are!  As soon as things settle down you will see me back to my same old deal hunting ways :)

I think that all of us who have been following your blog will understand that being a mother comes first! You take care of your Savvy and hopefully the pneumonia will not make her go back into the hospital.
