last night, around 7ish, Blair (blaire? sorry, blaire/blair), a nurse from the 10th floor who was never our nurse but knows one of my dear dear buds from HS, came down to see us on her way home from work. Ridge was talking it up and grinning and squealing LOUDLY....as in, we've never before seen him act like that. flirt. he also was trying to roll over from back to tummy. now, i'm no dummy and i know he's 4 months old and so that's about a month or more late on rolling over-- but normal kids aren't stuck in a hospital bed for four weeks so far....so anyway, i know you will all be excited about that...and we were too.
last night, he slept from about 10 or 10:30 till 3:30 and then he ate...then he slept till 6:15 or so, ate again, and went back to sleep till 8. Good morning. Brandon stayed the night with me last night and Gibby went home with Sawyer. Brandon got up early, went to get Sawyer for school and then he went on to work. So for about 3 hours I was here w/ Ridge alone, and Gibby was headed back this way. And I was glad to have some one on one time with Ridge- as long as he wasn't going to be super irritable. And guess what? He wasn't. He was totally happy. He even laid in his bed and watched his Praise Baby DVD twice while I was getting ready. He talked to the tv and cooed and squealed. Now Gibby is bouncing him to sleep. Good stuff, so far today.
Waiting on the doctors...hopefully they will be here soon.
Nothing else new,I don't think. Keep praying. Pray that the blood we see is not from a new location...eek. Pray that Ridge would be healed and be well and be whole again. Pray that God would choose to perform a miracle in our lives and that all would know it is from Him and by Him, and that all glory would be given to Him. Pray that Ridge's life and testimony, even so early on, would continue to point others to the grace and mercy and love we all seek and are desperate for.
Love to you all!
alisha, brandon, sawyer, and ridge
