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.
It's not the load that breaks you down; it's the way you carry it.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.-- Jesus Christ

latest update-- READ IT!!

AAAAAAAAAAAA!!! PRAISE THE LORD! They just told us the best news we've recieved the entire time we've been here. Ridge had red blood cells last night. After receiving them, his hemoglobin was at 9.5. He received platelets Tuesday night. They check those levels every 8 hours. 8 hours ago, Ridge's platelets were at around 56K. He has not received RBCs or Platelets all day. They just gave us the results of his latest blood work. His hemoglobin is 10.1!!! His platelets are 69K!!! Praise God! Keep praying! My prayer is that God is working a miracle in our son! No matter what, He IS taking us over this hump for today! And for that, and in all things, we will praise Him. Thank you for all the prayers...and THANK YOU, LORD!

"Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign LORD is my strength" Hab 3:17-19
Your joy in suffering is beautiful Alisha!
