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.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.-- Jesus Christ

for your viewing pleasure (FYVP) vol. II

update: with the upping of the octreotide, the diapers have stayed dark, BUT our counts are coming up.  the CBC in the morning will probably make me feel either better or worse, but the one this evening was significantly higher as far as hemoglobin goes- 9.2 to 9.9.  that's a decent jump in 12 hours, esp. considering no blood was given.  so i am hoping we are on a turnaround....

i also want to show you some cutie pie pictures.

yeeesssss...he is cute

yes...he has chubby cheeks.

yeeeessss...we love each other

and we have fun together.

and we give each other some sweet kisses.

and ridge pushes me away sometimes...

but he is always this cute.

I HAVE A SUPERB HUSBAND! of my HS english teachers made a post on FB about something like a pig in a blanket.  at that point, i craved them...for the rest of the day.  i mentioned this to the dear husband of mine, and said if i were to be going home that night, I'd make pigs in a blanket for myself and sawyer.  but i am not really ready to go home yet this week, so i was going to stay at the hospital...everyone sees where this is going.  anyway, although my husband was on the way to the hospital (well, about to be...) he made a stop at the store, bought the stuff, made the pigs in a blanket and brought them to the hospital, as a surprise.  mmm...i ate almost all of them, literally.  they were good. he even brought the mustard. yes.  he is a good man.

sawyer liked them...but mainly he liked the "pig" part.  this is his plate, below.

aaaaah...what a great day.  dark poop and all.

Props to Brandon! He's a good man.

Still praying for you as is my Sunday School class. The pics of Ridge are precious. His smile is contagious!

Love you girl!
