Matt finished a term on Sunday so we feel like we’ve been given a bit of a reprieve. (For three weeks at least.) I feel like we should be going to Disneyland! The Bahamas! Phoenix! Hawaii! Not Montana!
But I’ll take the break from school and be happy. Even if it kills me. (As we endured a mini snowstorm two days ago.)
If you haven’t checked out Baby Poppy’s website, please do. She is on ECMO (life support), but it’s to give her heart a rest from the 13-hour surgery on Monday. At first they only updated that she was on ECMO with no explanation and when I read it I felt like somebody punched me in the stomach.
This isn’t just someone else’s story. This is our story too. It brought all my worst fears to the surface. I’ve been doing a little better lately at turning to Jesus first though, before I let myself stew in all my fears and anxieties for a crockpot hour. Know what I mean?
Here are some pictures from our recent days.
Picnic on the kitchen floor was our only option for A) Feeding my children dinner, and B) Keeping the house clean for a showing.
The girls! Molli, Jami, and Jordan.
Time passes way too quickly.
I’ll be starting a page for Grace soon here so it makes it easier to read her story and updates. It just entails me bringing out my inner Technical Side which, ironically, doesn’t exist. Hugs?
