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

thank you

Thank you, God, for having the roads clear for us to make it to the hospital.  Thank you, God, for keeping Ridge alive while we waited what seemed like forever on the blood to make it to us.  Thank you for preserving his life.  Thank you for our ability to hold him in our arms.  Thank you for letting the picu doctor get his IV in, even if it does have to be in his stinkin neck.  Thank you for nurses who love my son and who take the best care of him we could ask for.  Thank you for nurses who take care of us, even providing us with some Christmas dinner.  Thank you for giving us two sorts MLT free days at home.

On a somewhat sarcastic note, God, thank you also for giving us the wisdom to bring our own meds with us and our own hgb monitor w/ the ridiculously expensive test strips, since half of Ridge's meds weren't ordered correctly and since apparently we are going to have to check his hgb ourselves.   Thank you for giving us the wisdom to bring that stuff.

Thank you for always taking care of our every need.
