Day 113~ Happy 16 week birthday to me!

So, even though I've had a couple hard days, we still managed to celebrate with some ice cream and strawberries. Gramma and Grampa came over for some dinner. Gramma's eyes were real leaky. I was very calm all evening which was quite the change from earlier. I have been weak and uncomfortable....my cry is so weak....it gets me some real good pity parties. I have not peed in a while. I feel cooler. I just am not myself. Mom has what she can under control....God's over it all. I just hung out all day and tried to relax. Dad and the boys were outside for a bit working on the new basketball court. Jonathan ended up in a tree....no big surprise there. Mom and Dad had their relaxation massages today....perfect timing.

So I managed to break the 6 pound barrier...not on good terms though....water doesn't count. We'll get the official weigh in at the end of this week Lord willing. My nurse will be out tomorrow to check me out again. I will go see Doc if I have to as well. Mom trusts their judgement to wait on the lasix....she knows they care about me and want to do what they can to help.....they have been so good to us in the past and great gifts from God and we will trust them through this.

So thank you for the prayers. We'll keep you all updated when we can. Please send up a few prayers for a little baby boy who is a friend of my Aunt Nancy....he had a seizure last week and now today he had 4 so his family is on a scary path right now as well. Thanks!

Gotta get some rest. Talk to you later. God Bless.

My students have been praying for you and asking about you daily. We were able to take a few minutes the other day for the whole class to see your site. They just loved the pictures of you and your brothers in the barn! We hope you are feeling better and continue to get stronger and stronger!!

Baby Jacob,
My prayers are with you and your family today. I read your blog every day and hope that you will regain some of your strength and relax a bit so that you are more comfortable. Happy 16 week Birthday. You are becoming quite the little man aren't you?

Mom, Dad and the rest of the loving family, hold close to God and His promises. He will supply your needs and give you the strength for each moment that comes. I will keep you all in my prayers

Hi Jacob
Just checking in on you again. I hope that you are feeling more comfortable. What beautiful parents you have, even with the hard times you are all having they are still concerned for other people. I will certainly add your friend to my prayers.

Happy Birthday Little Man! I am rejoicing in the Lord for 16 weeks to watch you grow.

I am praying that your body begins to work and expel the way it should. Praying also for mommy and daddy, that God gives them strength and stamina at this time.
