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

sorry it's been over a week since my last post.   things have been busy.

we were in the hosp. monday, got blood, came home. then again on thursday. then on friday, we came back to stay.  ridge began having a massive bleed and we were trying to take care of it low key, but saturday late/sunday early he vomitted and the only times that has happened, things got bad quickly. so we put him back on steroids, and in retrospect wish we'd have waited, but whatever.  anyway, he only vomitted once, and the bleeding had already slowed by the next day. it seems to be subsiding.  however, in the midst of all of that, we found out his port has a major infection, and his central line possibly has an infection as well.  so he is on a lot of IV antibiotics through those lines.  pray the infection is completely obliterated, bc otherwise it could enter his blood stream, and/or cause us to have to remove his line and/or his port.  we don't want to do that.

sawyer's getting in trouble, and waking up the baby, so this post is short. our life is so CRAZY!

take care.
