I can't believe it is
the middle of February already!
In some ways
the past few weeks have flown past
and in some ways
they have dragged by
hour after excruciating hour.
One day while MyHero was up and about-
I got my sewing machine out.
I used to sew special things for
Tara's little girls
so I thought it was time to sew
for little miss
How cute is she?
The quality is not great.
It is an Iphone picture sent to me.
I guess she stole the show at her
VALENTINE DAY at school!
She carries that
with her everywhere.
Of course, Bitty Baby had to have a
See the doll above?
SweetCheeks used to torture it by
carrying it around with its head tucked
under her arm.
Only ONE EYE works!
Kinda scary looking
when you lay her down flat!
(the doll-not SweetCheeks-lol)
Bright Eyes and Bitty Baby
both got matching underpants, too!
Sure do wish they lived closer
so we had more hands on
with her and her brothers.
That being said,
I am so thankful for kids
that stay in touch
and that we can
FACETIME with them!
He is doing well.
Just finished Week 4!
He is halfway through at this point.
Our understanding is that each week will get
progressively harder on him.
We now have the feeding tube down to a science.
In the beginning he did it by himself.
It took at least an hour and was kind of a mess.
we have a nice little game
FEED THE ZOO ANIMAL!
We can do an entire meal for him in about
fifteen minutes start to finish.
I do the cooking ahead of time and have it all
blended, pulverized and ready to
EAT shove down the tube.
Hey! At least he can't complain about my cooking.
Everything "tastes" the same to him.
I could feed him ANYTHING and he would
not know the difference!
Leftovers? NO PROBLEM!
See--even in adversity there are bonuses!
He is feeling pretty good most of the time.
His throat is quite sore but he manages
the pain with just Tylenol at this point.
(that in itself is a blessing)
He has not suffered from nausea very often
and that, too, is controlled by the medication.
All in all,
we are doing well.
We thank you for your prayers
and good thoughts.
I hope you have a wonderful
and that you have someone else in your life
so you can share the love that is in your heart!
As for me?
I won't be eating any chocolate today
