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.

the ridger is a GROUCH

Ridge is pretty fussy today. He had a really good night, for the most part. He only had to eat twice in the night, which is 2 feedings more than before we were admitted, but probably 2 feedings less than the last couple of nights. After 4:30 AM, though, the kid would NOT go to sleep. Finally after 6 this morning, he slept, but only for a little while. He's been awfully fussy today-- hungry some, probably crabby some from the steroids, but I don't get that b/c his steroid dose was reduced, and he's grouchier...if he's on less, i'd think he'd be less grouchy? nope.

he is spitting up white/clear with some brown in it almost @ every feeding, and his diapers are getting to be sorta green-- not a bad color in and of itself, but a little darker than they were when they were yellow...so it is still concerning.

pray that things turn around. they aren't REALLY bad or anything, but i am worried that we are about to hit another rough patch.

worried. yes, i said worried. i know, don't worry about tomorrow...i know. just keep praying! :) we know the road is long, and we know we need to be patient to wait on the Lord. Sometimes, if not all the time, though, it is still hard. What would normally be a little pebble in the road can sometimes seem as big as a boulder right now.

Pray for better days than today. Today wasn't horrible, it just wasn't up to par in my book. But I'm not in charge. So if we can't have better days, pray that Ridge's mother would be overflowing and busting at the seams with patience. :)

love to ya-
