Wednesday, December 16, 2009

HO HO HO! Went to Festival of Lights and there was a Santa there. Sey wanted to see him. This is Mye's first time on Santa. She just sat there. No problem. She is an easy going gal now. :)
Sey enjoyed it. I just realized that she actually knows very little about Santa- He says hohoho, wears red, kids can sit on him, and he will give you a candy cane- I have not really explained any more of him to her. We spend most of our time learning about the TRUE meaning of Christmas. After she saw Santa, and we were in the car, Sey said, "Santa said he wants cookies and milk and carrots for his donkey." I about died laughing...

Flyleaf Christmas song~lyrics

A frightened virgin teenage girl
Receives a message that defies the laws of this world
All she can do is weep and nod
She's to bring into this world the Son of God
God's angels sound their trumpets
And blow their horns
Tonight the long awaited savior is to be born
The goodness bound by Satan it has been torn
With this baby's precious brow ready for thorns
A star appears fufilling ancient prophecy
There's an ounce of fear as wise men follow faithfully
The Virgin Mary brings forth the human savior
And this future king sleeps soundly in the manger
Soundly in the manger
God's angels sound their trumpets
And blow their horns
Tonight the long awaited savior is to be born
The goodness bound by Satan it has been torn
With this baby's precious brow ready for thorns
Tonight He is born so one day He can die
To heal hearts that are torn and live the perfect life
So He hang upon a cross and we can take His life
So we can live as sinners
And He can pay the price
Tonight He is born so one day he can die
But He will rise again
God's angels sound their trumpets
And blow their horns
Tonight the long awaited savior is to be born
The goodness bound by Satan it has been torn
With this baby's precious brow ready for thorns
Ready for thorns..

We get to start our Jesse tree today! I made 12 ornaments that stand for different people in the line of Jesus, and we have 12 tiny nativity ornaments. Isaiah 11:1 "A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit." Each day I am going to place 2 gummy bears on the ornament of the day so that the girls know which one we are to talk about and put on the tree.
We put up our Christmas lights and blow up nativity on Friday.

Dad did make it home today around 3pm! Tonight he says he's pooped but good.:)

Thursday, November 19, 2009

Dad has been having some difficulty breathing, retaining water, and is achy. Possibly home Sat?

Lovin the sun and freedom
Yes, I did torture her for this shot. ;) She has 6 teeth. The top front right one will pop out any minute. It kind of looks out in this pic, but it is just swollen.
She got this bling from Calvary Kids Club last night. She just had to wear it all morning.

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

Dad is continuing to do well! No longer on oxygen or IV meds. He asked for his ds, glasses, and razor this morning so he must be feeling better. :) Unsure when he will be able to come home.

Monday, November 16, 2009

Around 3pm Dad was moved from ICU to a regular room! Praise the LORD! He is doing well. It is still difficult to cough and he does not have an appetite, but he is slowly but surely getting better. Thank you for all your prayers. It is going to be a difficult healing process, but he is on his way...

8am~Mom talked with dad this am. He is still saying he cannot take deep breaths. Nurses are still working him hard on deep breathing. Did not get up in chair during night. Maybe today.
4pm~Dad was sitting up in a chair eating ice cream when Mom, Shaw, and Ry visited him today! He is down to one blood pressure med and they hope to take him off of it soon. He still has fluid in his lungs that they are trying to get him to cough out, but he does not want to cough.
8pm~Dad ate well tonight. :) Even joked around. He sat in a chair a couple times today. He is still in ICU. Hopefully, he will be transferred to a regular room either tomorrow or Tues. Thankful he is realizing that he has to cough.

Saturday, November 14, 2009

Dad's pain is being controlled well. He sat up on the edge of the bed this afternoon. His heart misfires occasionally and his blood pressure drops way low. His BP needs to be more stable before they can let him out of ICU. He is having difficulty breathing deep and coughing and has some fluid on the lungs which can be expected, but pray that he can breathe deep so it opens up and does not turn into pneumonia. Mom is doing well. She must have just talked to Dad's nurse because she just now text me, "For the most part he's progressing slowly but steady. The sit up went painfully well, they will get him in a chair sometime tonight." He must have sat at the edge of the bed again tonight and will get in a chair later tonight. So that is cool.
God is so good, and we can see many little glimpses of His hand in all of this. Thank you for your prayers.

Mom got an update a bit ago: Whenever Dad awakens he is quite agitated so his blood pressure is not stable. Please pray he calms down. They are still needing to medicate him to keep him calm. Once he is more calm, his BP is more stable, and his oxygen levels continue good, they can start taking him off the breathing tube. He did need a couple units of blood tonight which is normal. His condition is good.
Dad went into surgery around 7:40am and came out around 3:30pm, I think. They did a quintuple bypass. He is recovering. He still has a breathing tube. Mom, Bob, Ry, Shaw, and I were able to see him. When he woke at one point, the nurse told him Mom was there. He squeezed Mom's hand twice and moved his eyes. They are keeping him quite sedated. Thank you for your prayers.

Thursday, November 12, 2009

Please pray for my Dad. He had a heart attack today. He is having a bipass surgery tomorrow morning up in Eugene. Doc said possibly a 5 or 6 bipass, but they will not know for sure until they are in there. My Mom, sibs, and I will be up there while they are cutting on him. Please pray for Mom too for strength and peace.

Sey and I made some Thanksgiving decorations a few weeks ago
Sey colored this yesterday. I bought the God Rocks! Christmas CD and a Veggie Tales Christmas CD a week ago, and we have been listening to them already. :)
Mye's creation To see Mye walking a bit go here:

Monday, November 2, 2009

Mye continued with a 101 fever Sunday. She is doing Ok though. Clingy and grumpy but no other symptoms. She is sleeping well. I just took her temp, and it is normal this early morning.

Mom was finally brave enough to give Mye cheerios today. Mye was in heaven... :)
Tonight after her seizure

We just finished watching Dumbo for the girls first time. Mye was standing alone looking up watching our TV. I watched as she slowly fell backward onto a pillow and rolled off on to her side! She was having a seizure. It started at 6:38. Her arms and legs had gently repeating movements. Her eyes were nonfucused. She was drooling and had raspy breath. I ran to the table where I always keep my purse. It was not there! I told Selah I would be right back, grabbed Myelle, and ran to the car. Hoping, Hoping, Hoping, it was there. It was not. I came back into the house, put Mye on her side on the living room floor, and searched for my phone because at this point I figured that if I could not find my purse I would have to call 911. Found the phone! Looked for the purse again. Found it on my bed. Yay! Ran back to Myelle and was able to give her her rescue medication called diastat at 6:45. Her left leg and hip were starting to mottle. Her seizure ended 6:49. Just in time! Whew. So glad I found the purse with her med in it. I usually always have it with me or know where it is. Poor little one had a hard time getting through her post ictal period. She did not want down for 2 1/2 hours. She did not want to be alone. Poor Sey was traumatized too, I think, because while I was trying to comfort Mye as she was moaning a few minutes after her seizure Sey saw a HUGE spider climbing up the wall 3 feet from her. I rescued her, but she totally freaked out. Seizures plus huge spiders were just too much! Mye's Temp was 101.9 at 7pm then 100.9 at 8pm. At 11:30pm it was 97.8. Thank you, Jesus, that she is sleeping well and doing fine. Thank you that she was not injured during her fall. Please help her and Sey to not have any more seizures.

Fun in a corn maze

We found an ugly pumpkin patch. We walked a ways. Sey was way ahead. She yelled, "I found it!" I looked and saw this. She set her heart on this pumpkin. I tried to find a similar one for our littlest punkin
