As you know my sweet, redheaded nephew has been suffering from a lot of pain due to an accident last weekend. He has been on a lot of medication and they have been trying to patiently wait for an appointment to see the neurologist. It was going to be THREE weeks, so we prayed. It was then moved to TWO weeks, so we did a lot more praying. His appointment time has now been moved up to the 18Th!!! I'm still praying for an earlier time, so they can get back to life as they once knew it, sooner, but every little step is a blessing and answered prayer from the Lord.
But wait...that is not all I'm dancing about. Sawyer has been feeling good, able to move around and be a little kid and rest at night, without the heavy pain meds. When my mom asked him today if he hurt, his reply was "just a little, but I'm OK." A BIG leap from the nights of screaming pain... OH friends, GOD IS GOOD!!!
Thanks so much for the prayers. I will continue to keep you posted on his recovery and prayerfully the good news they do receive when his visit to the doctor arrives. Please continue to keep him on you prayer list, for he is by no means out of the woods yet. We are just thankful that he is having moments of rest and feeling good. I think he even had enough energy to fight with his brothers when they came back home today... yep, feeling like himself again. :)
*********************Since I have been posting a lot about Sawyer this week, I guess you have been wondering what my hubby and the kids have been up too (well, at least just pretend you want to know.) I took pictures, just for you...
Yesterday, my daughter cooked dinner, all by herself, for the first time. She made spaghetti with crescent rolls. I thought she did very well and was so proud of her.
Kevin and Jordan have been going fishing about every free night this week. My hubby loves to fish and has been taking our kids since they were small. They can bait and reel like no body's business. Since the weather has been warmer and beautiful, I don't see them till dark and dinner is ready.
My daughter has her own style these days. Sometimes I think it is really cute. Sometimes I look at her and think "what are you thinking?!!!" And sometimes I just simply shrug and go on. I'm picking my battles, so unless it is not modest, then she is free to express herself.
I leave before they go to school in the morning, so dad takes them. I can count on him to make sure she is modest, but I never know what array of colors, hairstyles, etc...will greet me when I come home in the afternoon. Today, she was classic preppy, with a polo style shirt, and she decided to wear the famous pigtails that she is known for...
Isn't she cute?!!!
Have you met our dog? She is in need of a bath!!!
My mother-in-law will have to undergo Chemotherapy. They did find cancer present in her lymph nodes. Please say a prayer for her. This is not an easy journey for her, as you can imagine.
One thing my mother-in-law loves are her flowers. As long as I have known her and Papa, they have had a beautiful garden and flowerbeds. The other day she picked me a beautiful bouquet for my table. They smelled so good and so springy!
I have been so good lately. I'm not really on a diet, but I have drank NOTHING but water for over two weeks and I really feel better. And I am not snacking a whole lot between meals. However, I had forgotten that I had helped a teenager out and bought a package of yummy goodness a while back for a fundraiser at school. HELLO?!!! The hubby brings my purchase in the door this afternoon... I have a weakness for these...
I was good and only had two out of the whole box.
Well, Easter is fast approaching. As you may have heard, I love doing crafts. My sis always thought I should have been an art teacher. She is probably right. I love being crafty with kids. Today at school, my babies and I did an art project for Easter. I am going to put them on my door. I finished them up tonight and thought I would share them with you. Aren't they precious?
If you can't tell, I used their footprints for the ears of the rabbits.
Well friends, this has been one crazy week! Thanks for coming along on the ride with me.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
prayers and blessings...
