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.

smiley baby

earliest post: 10 a.m.ish...

Ridge's counts are holding fairly steady since yesterday.  Platelets continue to go up.  

Comparison report yesterday/today:
 hemoglobin:  11.7/11.4
hematocrit: 34/33
platelets: 80k/98k

poop...and lots of it.

Ridge is full of smiles and squeals lately.  He is becoming more interactive and tries to take in all his surroundings.  And he smells like rice krispies treats.  No new news today.  The doc hasn't been in, so if things change, I will update later.  

In other side note news- the reason ridge smells so delicious is bc of his bath soap.  No one is paying me to say this, but I can not get enough of the Method products Target sells.  I sell Arbonne, and I love it love it love it, and the baby line is GREAT, but with Ridge being in the hospital, I am having to sometimes buy other things because it is faster than waiting on the Arbonne to arrive by mail.  I love the Method household products but hadn't tried the skincare.  It's all natural and so so good!  The baby line smells of rice milk and mallow-- thus the rice krispy-ness.  Sawyer has some toddler kind at home but I haven't given him his bath in a while so I am not sure how it smells.  The adult kind...mmmm....white tea or olive leaf, either one, is a winner.  And all the hand soaps- great.  Can't get enough! Natural, good for us, smells good, and  while it is pricier than the store brands or the non-natural brands, it isn't too pricey for its "class"...and  I'm a big believer in using as much natural stuff as possible, so the price doesn't really bother me...and it really isn't ridiculous.   Other than buying my first loved products- Arbonne- there is no other skin care I would use for my kiddos!  Not that there aren't other good organics or  natural ones out there- there are.  But I loooove this Method business!   Plus I get to smell a really cute rice-krispy treat all day.

Sorry for the sidebar.  :)

10:26 a.m.--  update-- poop (please note i'm blogging the color change...i dont just randomly like to type the word poop.)

I may need to try the Method products-- I love the J&J night time soap and lotion, but it is literally all I've ever tried! Glad the poop is getting to a healthier color today!

I'm liking that poop color. Come on, Ridge. Let's go for true yellow!
