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.

No change really

Ridge might get one of his oral meds reduced, and he might start taking steroids orally instead of intravenously...and he is going to start getting weighed every other day instead of every day, I think....(he weighs over 17 lbs....yeah)....that's about all the changes.

he doesn't want to sleep....sometimes. it's annoying...sometimes. :)

gotta go take care of him, but i'm gonna throw this out there-- I'm looking for some type of secondary job that I can do from the hospital- not that requires recruiting or anything like that, I'm looking to just write or proofread for people. Things that can be done pretty much via email....not a ton of face to facing b/c I don't have time for that w/ a sick kiddo in the hospital. My blog is about the only verification I have of any writing potential, but I have done some proofreading for some people in the past, and they could say better than I can, but I think I'm pretty good at it. I have a strong English background and am certified to teach English, so I have some decent skills there. So if you know anyone who needs anything like that- proofreading, or some little article/editorial/snippit written-- anywhere in the nation, b/c if it's via email that would be easy....anywhere in the world, I guess-- give them my contact email:

Not to market myself there...but well, that's exactly what I did. We trust the Lord will take care of us in all things here-- I am just exploring some possibilites for a little supplemental income to help out! Plus, it would give me something to work towards-- it's hard not being @ my job, even though I wouldn't leave Ridge for anything!

Have a blessed day- gotta sign off for now- Ridge is a cranky kiddo right now!
love to ya-

I'm glad to hear that Ridge is still doing well, and we continue to pray for healing. In the meantime we are happy to hear about His daily provision for all of you; in spite of the circumstances we just know that God is at work. Now, what is this about you letting your baby wear PIRATE SOCKS!?

Had the blood drive today at Hollis and after drinking water instead of tea for several weeks, I was able to give! There were over one hundred people sign up and OBI was scheduled to leave at 6:00 pm but had a roomful when I left after 6:00, so there was lots of blood donated in Ridge's name and Gibby said it was humbling! Glad you had a good time Monday!! We love you!

I love you all. Am praying for you as you walk through this journey. I am praying for Ridge's healing and God's provision for you as you have needs of any kind. You are a special family and God is using this "for His glory!" I wish I could be with you a lot more, but that can't be. Dad / Papaw Ron
