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.

Not a lot to report but I know some of you read this daily, so I am trying not to disappoint too much.

Ridge is stylin' today in his "Lock up your daughters" tshirt from baby gap....I will try to post pics if I remember to take them.

Today is pic day for Sawyer @ school...we shall see how those turn out, b/c he repeatedly told me he was NOT smiling for those pictures. I told him to just make a face instead then. Since I didn't get a pic of the face he said he would make, I will use an emoticon....he sorta made this face :o

Anyway....Ridge's counts are still stable. His platelets were at 59K and jumped to 70K, which was exciting to me....and you, I am sure.

He is still enjoying rice cereal and green beans and that makes deciphering the poop color very difficult. I think it's still good though....

He is layin on his tummy jamming out to some tunes w/ me while I type this blog. He's such a good baby.

Hope you have a good day. Wherever life finds you today, remember to take today in stride- do not compare it to your yesterday or your possible tomorrow. Today is what we have, and it doesn't matter how good or bad our yesterday was or our tomorrow is what we've got. so take it for what it is, and seize it!

Your Sawyer stories always make me laugh. Glad Ridge is stable and enjoying food. Have a good day!

Father let it be noted today, we do not claim the disease or attach it to Ridge. WE rebuke it in Jesus Name of Nazareth. For HE CONQUERED the disease with STRIPES on His Back. We remember HIM HERE. WE RECEIVE WHOLENESS for Ridge here, made whole by His Stripes, HEALED. HalleluYah. No matter what the report, we disagree with the report and call it different, we call the report HEALED, WHOLE and NO MORE, Ridge is at ease with no dis/ease. HalleluYah. WE STAND AGAINST the accuser today and forever. WE call The BLOOD between Ridge and the disease, no more manifestations in Jesus Name of Nazareth. WE speak LIFE and more abundantly, and we are not surprised FATHER when his counts are better even WELL. HalleluYah. We do not look for negative results because "this is what is expected with this disease." We LOOK for the unexpected in YOUR REPORT, WHOLE, normal conditions, perfect conditions and nothing missing in Ridge, in Jesus Name of Nazareth. Thank You Abba. Amen. KL
