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.

day 50

I think today was day 50. Ridge is still doing SOOOO good- his counts were stable again today, he slept from 8:30-1:50 last night. then from about 2:10 till 6:30! he even napped today, twice! tonight, as soon as Brandon and sawyer headed home, Ridge went right to sleep! he's being such a good boy! he smiled a TON for the doctor today, and chatted it up with our nurse micah and the student nurse w/ her today...he showed off for my friends who came by w/ supper tonight...AND...he got to eat cereal for the first time (for all you non-parents--- not CEREAL...rice cereal...not like lucky charms or anything)....i put the spoon to his mouth and it was like he'd been doing this forever. he ate ALL of what i prepared! such a good boy. i've got some email catch up to do, so i'm signing off tonight. keep the prayers coming-- specifically add that his apnea does not begin b/c they stopped the caffeine to see what happens. we hate those monitors when the apnea acts up! ridge sleeps GREAT but no one else does! and of COURSE keep praying for healing and for strength on our part, as well. hope you had as good a day as ridge!
