Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone; but, still miraculously, my own.
Never forget, for a single minute you didn't grow under my heart, but in it.

So thought I would post and share where things are with us.  We are in need of prayer.. seems I say that alot lately and seems that some are offended by that.  If you are reading this blog and are offended I am sorry.  My hope is by sharing here on the blog the folks that come here to read want to know what is going on and are not going to be going to all the trouble to read our blog and then think bad things about us.  Anyway...

Bobby is still searching for a job.  He has an interview tomorrow morning at 10:45.  We are praying hard this job works out!  It seems to be a good thing and so we are praying the Lord will show us if this is what He has for Bobby.  He is applying for things continually but not being called much for interviews.  It seems like alot of competition even for minimum wage jobs. We do covet your prayers for this area of our life!  We do have our thirty-One business that we started!  We need prayer for it to do well also.  I have several parties going right now.  One will end in time for our 30 day mark but if I do not get more sales on it then I wont be able to close it as a party and I wont earn my first start swell kit.  PLEASE pray that it will pick up and quickly as it closes February 10th!  Go HERE TO TARYN'S PARTY to see some of our items and please share her party link with others!! We have 35 items that are under $20 so if we had quite a few folks come and spend even small bits it will add up! :)

I also am in need of prayer for a big decision.  Bobby and I are prayerfully moving forward.  My insurance company is doing a study where they will pay for 200 weight loss surgeries. My name was put in a lottery quite a while back and I found out today that my name was drawn as one of the ones out of all the entries that has been chosen!  So Feb 14th I need to be in Baton Rouge for my first screening.  If I pass that then I will come home for a few weeks and a few days after I get home I will start a liquid diet for 2 weeks.  Then I will go back to Baton Rouge  in about 2 or 3 weeks from the first visit and have the 2nd screening. They will decide which other appts I needs (cardio, sleep study, etc) and then when all evals and screenings are done my information goes before a surgical review board.  They will decide if I am safe for surgery and which surgery is the best and safest one for me.  There are 3 options.  the lapband, the sleeve and the bypass.  I will not have a choice, they decide what is best for me.  Then we will meet with the surgeon and begin the process.  PLEASE be praying that we will know if this is what the Lord has for me or not and that the right surgery will be chosen and all will go well if I do have the surgery.  It has been pointed out that at this weight (339 lbs) that my heat could give out at any time. sigh  and so yes surgery is dangerous but so is living with 200 plus extra pounds!  Imagine doing everything in our day with a 200 lb person on top of you.  Anyway please please pray for this entire process for us.

Not sure if I updated yall since the boys appointments in lafayette.  Jeremiah is doing pretty good.  They think the decline may be from too much seizure meds so he is being weaned off depakine and going to be just on one med for now and see how it goes.  He is more alert and responsive so we are blessed by that!  We found out he is aspirating when he swallows so all by mouth feeds are d/c!  I can't tell you the tears I have cried over this :(  I miss feeding him and it hurts me for him to not get to experience that part of life.  So many events in life involve food. sigh.  but I want him safe so we are bollusing through the mic-key button 3 times a day.  We have added a bit of baby oatmeal to his compleat pediatric to make sure he is not refluxing because the GI is concerned. We are so battling his little bowels and not wanting to use miralax daily because of the concern about it.  I have a call into the dr on that.

Noah still has some bowel issues and we have regressed in his bowel training again and having more and more accidents.  I am trying to not freak and be patient. I am thinking a trip to GI is coming soon for both boys.  Noah was diagnosed high functioning autism by the Neuro on our trip.  I am not positive I agree with the diagnosis but we are looking into what it means and what therapies are available.  Good news came on one therapy today so we are waiting on word about that.

Please keep praying for all of our family and thank you to any who are reading and praying.  Feel free to email me anytime :)  and I am on FB for anyone interested in just day to day visiting.

God bless,

we are keeping you all in our prayers. Junior aspirates and can have nothing by mouth but we can carefully still let him have tastes. I am just careful to suction afterwards so nothing ends up in his lungs. He loves licking a sucker or his favorite is getting a couple drops of dr. pepper. hugs

Kisses in the Wind

I hold you in my heart and touch you in my dreams.
You are here each day with me, at least that's how it seems.

I know you wonder where we are... what's taking us so long.
But remember child, I love you so and God will keep you strong.

Now go outside and feel the breeze and let it touch your skin...Because tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God hold you in His hand until I can be with you.
I promise you, my darling, I'm doing all that I can do.

Very soon, you'll have a family for real, not just pretend.But for tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God wrap you in His arms and hold you very tight.
And let the angels bring the kisses that I sent to you each night.

When Love Takes You In!
