Some updates on past posts and prayer requests:
*The van is fixed. It turned out everything was under warranty. The ‘faulty part’ that landed it in the shop to begin with was probably ‘faulty’ because our van required something a little more hefty. So it’s fixed and running well – and didn’t cost us other than time.
*JJ’s work has gone well. It’s been a little slow the last week or so, but God continues to provide us what we need financially and it’s been nice to have him home a little more. We were able to go to the zoo last week and even today, we had a nice afternoon of running errands and then hanging out as just our little family of four. It’s nice to be able to make a few family memories before we enter a hard season.
*E is still waking up somewhere between 4-6 am to eat. I’m bummed he’s not sleeping through the night but he is pulling up, saying da-da-da-da, and crawling a bunch. My guess is these developmental milestones have ratcheted up his appetite.
*My mom comes in at the end of the week – looking forward to seeing her!
*We seem to all have allergies (or head colds) but so far surgery is still on schedule and I’ve been improving.
*My dad flew out yesterday after visiting for a week. It was great to have him in town. –> Prayer Request … My dad isn’t able to be here for the surgery because he’s helping one of my brothers’ family. My nephew, Jack, has some medical tests in the midwest next week so my dad is going to be helping drive across country. Please pray for that trip. Safe travels and successful medical tests and procedures. We are hopeful Jack (born at 27 weeks, now almost 4 yrs old) will have some good news about long term status of his esophagus (he currently has a trach). The little guy’s biggest procedure day is also May 25th, same day as my surgery.
