wife. mom. adjunct professor. we homeschool. i'm a little bit OCD. i love math. bright colors and geometric designs make me drool. we live with a medical rarity, and Jesus saved his life. through that, Jesus is changing us. The american dream and status quo is overrated...and sometimes just plain wrong. our lives, our family, our careers, our faith are all now filtered through a new lens-- thank you Jesus. welcome to our crazy. feel free to take some of it with you, we have plenty to go around.

day 34, we believe

No news today really. We still have yellow poop! Ridge got a bath today so he is really clean, and has clean bandages/dressings....he is sleeping currently....he had a GREAT night last night-- needed to eat at 11 pm and at 4 am, then again around 6:45 this morning. The monitors were not going off at all the entire night, so that was wonderful. Brandon stayed up here w/ me and my mom took Sawyer home. It would be so nice for Brandon and I and Ridge and Sawyer to all be able to stay together, but since that isn't really feasible, it is nice when a grandma can take Sawyer home and 3 of the 4 of us can stay together. I tend to like not having to share the bed, anyway, but when you don't have a choice about it, well, it's not the same. So it has been nice having Brandon here so I'm not laying alone...although, like I said, at home, I like it when I get the bed to myself! I guess these hospital couch/beds and the circumstances in general change your opinions sometimes.

I have a dentist appt. in a little while and I think I will stay gone the rest of the day since Ridge is doing well. I think I will go get Sawyer from school, but first I think I will try to find him some shoes that do not have Woody and Buzz on them. If he doesn't wear them, fine. But at least he'll have the option. :) I'm staying the night at home tonight w/ Sawyer and will be back tomorrow.

Sorry the update is kind of boring-- but then again, I'm glad it's kind of boring right now.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Hi Alisha

My name is Aaron Green. I wanted to let you know that I follow your blog and your baby's progress daily. I was told of your situation from a family member in Vinson and I know Brandon from when we were very young. I am amazed daily by your faith and trust in God. I just want you to know that your request for prayers for your family and Ridge are being heard and we pray daily for you guys. Today while I was reading another friends blog, I saw on her blog list, Ridge's name and a prayer request for him. Keep in mind that this is a friend of mine from Amarillo who now lives in Dallas. I think it ends up that my friend knows a friend of your cousins some how, anyway, that struck me as AMAZING. Although I dont know you and probably will never meet you, I am a Mom who reads of your struggles and cries right along with you and pleads for the Lord to answer these prayers for Ridge. Just wanted to let you him, Aaron (Tillman)Green
