for all the kids who have taught me a life lesson....

i have one kidney. i have been in the hospital since tuesday night. i have found out on the 18th of March @ 9:30PM, that i only have one kidney. the ER was great. signed in triaged, pain meds and in one room in like 45 minutes. the trip to floor five wasn't so much. i do not like to repeat myself. darn, i should of just had a record player playing over and over. i found out not to 100% trust the medical team. people said they would do stuff and didn't. gave the wrong kind of pain medication. once time though. do not like vicadin! major headaches with icky stuff. they sent me home with another pain medication. good.i am on an antibiotic as well. i am dealing with a kidney stone still hanging out doing it's hurtful thing! wow. never take the littlest things for granted. this post to all the little children who have taught me this along with way!!! i will not ever take the little stuff for granted! i will live my life better and be even more appreciative!!!

one two 3

today is Pete's third birthday! he knows how to hold up 3 fingers. it is cute. he hides his pinky finger. he is now 33+LBS, his vocabulary is getting bigger every day. he can county assisted to 3 sometimes 4. will sing the ABC song with a grownup. his favorite foods are kellog's fruit snacks, hot dogs, yogurt and speghetti. he loves noodles. you can find pete in any flower bed with a kid's shovel, dirty, not a care in the world, on a skateboard or in the dugout @ a baseball park! i took him to the airport to pick up daddy and accidentally parked int the wrong garage. so needless to say, we got a free train ride out of the deal! pics are coming. i love low batteries!

baseball in my heart for one son and a diagnosis for the middle child.

on the way to my oldest son's baseball practice i was praying aloud for my middle child. he was at a doctor's appointment. this was very last minute. there i sat in the driver's seat, praying. my youngest 3YO caught wind that i was saying something. he asked me what i was doing and i told him i praying! he said me too i praying too. he went on his little sweet baseball prayer. then he said something about his heart. i said is there a baseball in your heart and he says yes very proudly. thought that was really cute! then on March 17th we have a doctor's appointment for tristan's final diagnosis with the psychologist. he had his testing/eval today. they have put tristan on an additional medication in the evening to help calm him and boy does it ever! it also stays with him during the next day!

Haiti this is just aweful. i have been watching the news too much. being consumed. wishing i could do more other than just pray and maybe donate a couple of dollars here and there! i wish i could bring a child home and take care of that child!! bathing clothing and most of all, feeding that child. no child should ever go w/out food. @ bible study we are learning to think of 1 word to best describe our hearts in 2010. i picked THANKFUL. there is so much to be thankful for. i don't have to look around a whole lot to see that!! what word will you choose to best describe your heart????
