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 latest

So here's the latest news here:

Sawyer and Brandon are dressed identical in OSU gear and we're having a "game day" right here in the hospital.

All four of us (Ridge, Sawyer, myself, Brandon) stayed here @ the hospital last night. It was the first night all 4 of us have been under the same roof in over 5 weeks. It was wonderful. I'm not saying it went off w/o a hitch, but it was wonderful. I think we will try it again tomorrow night as well. Tonight I get the night off and I'm taking Sawyer home, then to church tomorrow, then we'll come back for some more hospital time.

Ridge is still doing well; we have a wagon in our room now and we can unhook Ridge from his monitors, but not his IV, and we have taken him outside some. He can also play on a blanket on the floor. He can't be unhooked for a long time, but for some time. He did have a full skeletal survey Thursday night around 10 pm and we found out the results- he has some spots on the bones in his arms and in his legs. I think they are assuming these are related to the MLT but the doctors do not seem concerned by them. We are waiting, I guess, to find out if they are really MLT related or if we need further bone density scans. It's kind of frustrating that they've found something else. I mean, I'm glad they found it, or whatever, but it's just frustrating that it's there period.

Ridge is waking up, so I better sign off. Hope everyone enjoys their weekend of football (everyone who knows me knows that i haven't watched a second of the sport today...nor will i. but it is on here in our hospital room....and here i am blogging.)

check ya later-
