I just wanted you all to know that Em's eye ended up being okay. She was in pain though and it made me so sad to think that it was Samuel that scratched her eye.
Why I haven't posted in well over a week...
Things have been crazy on this end. Not bad. Not terrible. But a bit crazy. I am having serious issues with my e-mail (through hotmail) and will probably need to switch to something else soon. Please give me grace if I have not responded.... I can't get to my e-mail. I've been a little discouraged with Samuel's therapy lately. I'm not disappointed in the therapisst, it's him I'm struggling with. He doesn't want to do what he doesn't want to do. He has been getting frustrated easily and has been super clingy. He's regressed in his eating... and eats fewer variety of foods than ever. It makes me want to cry sometimes. And walking... he's got what is called "gravitational insecurity"... what this means is he doesn't like to walk without holding onto something. If he will walk by Christmas that would be my present.
We paid our rent for Nov. Praise the Lord!!!! That is such a miracle for us! I want to be sure to mention the good things and not just the trying stuff. I also think (cross your fingers) that Mike might have a job. I'll let you know when we find out for sure. We're still looking for a place to live.
I had the craziest OBGYN experience up here. It's too long to explain- just know it was BAD. So now I'm trying a different practice and will not be seen until Dec. 6 (when I will be 14 weeks pregnant) and this will be my first real appointment (when I see a Dr.) and they don't do an ultrasound at all till 4 weeks later. So we might as well wate a couple more weeks and find out what the sex of the baby is! Crazy. Things are so weird up here.
Sometimes in my head I've composed a list of what I "hate" about living up here. That has not served me so I'm going to take the time right now and refute it by listing what I like about being up here:
Trader Joe's is so close.
Women's Bible Study.
My home group for church.
Being so close to good parks.
The beautiful autumn leaves all around me.
Mike loves his school and is enjoying it so much.
Libby's ballet classes.
Membership to the Philadelphia Zoo.
David & Tosha
So now it's time to rest before Samuel's speech/eating therapist comes. I'll try to get back into the swing of things soon. We'll see. Hugs to you all.
Philippians 4:7; "4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; 6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
