Day 112!

I'm tired. I'm cranky. I'm miserable. I'm having trouble breathing... when I'm not screaming. I'm exhausted. I'm freaking Mommy out. I'm weak. But my heart is strong. We're al trusting God to take care of me.
In the midst of all this we attempted to get to church today.... didn't happen. We did get to go visit Mr. Rob and Mrs. Tami and their new baby boy Ryder! He's 9 days old and already twice my size! He's going to be a beast! He made me look bad not only with his size, but he's as red as a jelly bean. Ms. Tami and Mommy said that when you put the two of us together we look like Christmas - Red and Green! We hung out and pooped at the same time, slept at the same time and ate at the same time. Did I mention that he's also a showoff? Yeah, he was flaunting his ability to drink from a bottle! That's ok! I like my tube! Less work!
Mommy got so nervous about me when we got home that she called one of my nurses out to check on me. She said that I look tired, exhausted, miserable, but that my heart is strong. She thinks that I should take it easy with my feeding for a bit. We're going to cut back on some of the volume and switch to PediaLite for the next 24 hours. Mommy and Daddy decided to let me watch some TV tonight so that I would fall asleep and get some rest. I'll talk to you tomorrow!

Sweet Jacob and Family,

We continue to pray for all of you. Jacob I hope that you are feeling better and getting some sleep - and allowing Mom to get some rest, too. I wish there was something I could do to help ease some of the accompanying burden (laundry, floors, etc), but as I can't I will continue to pray for all of your needs and thank you for sharing with all of us.

With love and prayers - Cheryl
