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.

let's have a turnaround

Ridge has been doing really well the last 2 days. He napped quite a bit yesterday and was in a pretty good little mood when he was awake. He fell asleep early last night- probably around 8:15ish...and didn't wake up till midnight to eat. Then he slept till 6:30 this morning. The monitors weren't going off like crazy either...they did go off some, but not until about 5:30 a.m., so it wasn't a big deal really. However, upon his waking, my mom changed his diaper and it was some "normalish" looking, and some dark...and the next diaper he had was almost empty, but what was there was dark again...so the dark poop seems to have returned. boo for dark poop.

ridge seems to be in good spirits, he doesn't act like he feels bad, and his counts are still stable. but the dark poop has been the precursor for the active bleeding before....let's pray that it just STOPS.
that's all the updates i have so far. keep praying- i think we are all growing weary- not worried that God isn't going to take care of us or Ridge, b/c we know that He is....but i think we are all just literally tired-- emotionally and physically and mentally....and you can step out and take a break, but it's still always just...there. so pray for rejuvenation.

whatever life is throwing at you right now, i pray that you are reminded of the provision God makes for his children. that is what helps us through this difficult time right now- constant reminders of the hand of God holding us-- and he reminds us of this through you and people like you. each of you are incredible.

thank you for your prayers and support.

have a blessed day.
