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.

hospital...but no bleeding

we've been back in the hospital since thursday....but not for MLT.  Ridge has RSV.  hooray! ugh. he isn't, er, wasn't, terribly bad when we were admitted.  he was wheezy that morning, and thankfully, even w/ the impending bad weather, our pediatrician let us bring him right in to give the RSV was positive, and her advice and our preference was to just bring him in to be safe....yesterday he seemed muuuuch better,but today his breathing is more labored and his cough is worse.  he doesn't act like he feels badly, and his hemoglobin is still stable- in the 12's.  that's all i have to report. we thought we'd be going home today but now i think it will be sunday at the earliest.  hope all you oklahomans enjoyed your days snowed in- iced in- if you were so lucky to stay home from work.  snow days are no fun if you are stuck in a hospital room where you all begin to grate on each other's nerves but you have nowhere to go....they are also no fun if you have no power- thankfully, we got to keep our power-- but i know not everyone was that fortunate. power but a well baby at home in the dark might be my preference to power and a sick baby in the teeny hospital room (but thankfully, we did get a big room again, but it's nothing compared to home!)

more to come later.  it's too crazy in here to produce a very coherent thought, though.  with a baby, a three year old, and a husband. :)  it's a zoo.  a fun zoo...but a zoo.

AAAH! i forgot- earlier in the week i updated the photoblog.  some of you have probably already checked it, but if you want some pics of ridgey at home, look over here.

Hey Gal! So sorry to hear Ridge is in the hospital again. Hope y'all will get to go home soon. Did your blog get a facelift? I don't remember it looking like this. It used to be all green didn't it? Anyway, I like it. I've been thinking about y'all a lot lately.

Still in my prayers,
