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.

scary day

Ridge is getting blood right now. We had a serious scare earlier today- Ridge began fussing, we assumed it was time for him to eat again. So I took him to hold him and noticed his cry was weird...his face looked pale...and his lips were turning white to blue. So...we had to run to get the nurse, soon our room was full of nurses and a resident and a doctor and more were on the phone. He wouldn't stay awake, and Nancy, one of the nurses was doing a good job trying to get him to stay with us...we still aren't sure what the heck happened, but soon he perked back up. It was the weirdest sound/cry I've ever heard, like he couldn't breathe, but all of his stats on the monitor looked normal. We were supposed to move to a different floor tonight, but this scare is instead moving us to the ICU, which is sort of good news b/c they monitor like a hawk. He is fussing, so I gotta sign off here, but keep us in your prayers. We are constantly reminded that God is controlling the situation...but sometimes that reminder comes in a scary package.
