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

yay for today.

Ridge had a good night last night and all his blood counts were up today.  The poop issue is trying to isn't black anymore.  It is still dark, but not scary.  He was/is stable enough today that the doc said it was okay to go ahead with the six month shots.  They don't have any flu shots here, so we will continue to wait on that.   So...sometime today he will be getting his six month immunizations.  The steroids don't allow him to get live virus vaccines bc his immunity is down due to the steroids.  There aren't any live virus vaccines, I don't think, at 6 months...but this could pose some problems later if we choose to give any live virus vaccines...I don't know that we will/would...I'm not here to open a vaccine forum.

Anyway, I think that is about all of the updates.  Sawyer is enjoying all the Halloween candy both his grandmas have given him.  He got to stay in his jammies all day today and daddy got to go hunting.  I got to eat three donuts...and have panera bread for lunch.... and see a friend i haven't seen in awhile.  so it's all good.  OH...and...don't get jealous...i finished....yes, Christmas shopping.  for everyone.  i didn't forget anyone.  i'm not at work, so i don't get to do secret no expense there this year (sorry to any YHS teacher reading this...i think i'm a decent secret santa giver!)...unless some exchange i am unaware of creeps up...i'm done...finished...finito...whatever word goes here- the end.  

Yesterday, we had a fun little photo shoot with a friend of ours...we just went outside the hospital and played with sawyer and ridge and hung out and got some candid shots.  ridge hadn't had any pictures at all since his birth and newborn shots, which another of our friends took.  we're so lucky!  anyway, i took a few horrible shots myself before the actual photographer showed up.

hope everyone had a great weekend!
