Difficult Days

For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds,” says the Lord. ~ Jeremiah 30:17

On Father's Day, Trey's Dad Bill was rushed to the emergency room complaining of heart pains. After an arteriograph was performed, his main artery was over 80% blocked, and 4 more of his arteries also had blockage. They performed a quintuple bypass on Tuesday.

During the surgery, the doctor had a difficult time re-inflating his lungs. Following his bypass surgery, they discovered a hole in his lung. He has been on the ventilator at 100% oxygen since then. They have given him steroids, with no real benefit being seen from them. Today the pulmonologist did a further evaluation on him and discovered that he had a previously undiagnosed lung disease that was causing problems with his recovery.

Essentially, he has a very long road to recovery ahead of him. I'm asking that you please keep him, his wife Sindy, and our entire family in your prayers. Trey is having a difficult time dealing with his Dad's sickness as well. In the end, we know that God is in control.  

 As a little girl, I cherished my time with my grandpa more than anything, and I pray that Ryanne has that opportunity with Bill. I can't imagine who I would be today if it wasn't for my grandpa, and it crushes my soul to think that she may not have that chance. Please pray for Bill!

For with God nothing will be impossible.” ~ Luke 1:37

Daycare Dilemma

Germs. We all have the, right? But that is one thing I would rather not share.

Unfortunately, kids are taught to share. They share toys, foods, and too many times germs.

Ryanne has been back in daycare for a whopping four days and is already sick. That is one "benefit" of daycare I could've gone without.

So we loaded up on antihistamines and cough syrup, and I guess I can look at it as an immune system boost prior to her school years.

That's the good thing, right? At least she is already adapted to all of the filthy sick children sharing germs with her.

I hate seeing her sick, but I know that if a cold is the most she has to deal with, we are probably doing alright.

Okay, I'm off to go read my 276 pages and handwrite a health history more extensive than I even know about myself.

But here are a couple photos first, because I feel like I haven't blogged in 372 days, and Ryanne seems to have grown so much since I shared pictures last. Hope y'all are having a great Sunday!!
