Tears.

okay this fuzzy picture was taken at night at the hospital.  Mike is holding our very discontent Michael.  It's been so hard lately to see him crying.  He seems so miserable.  He's still not eating properly so he's getting 98% of his meals through the feeding tube.  A bit discouraging.  It's been hard remembering that Samuel was already home by now (when he was a preemie in the hosp.)... and Michael still seems to have a ways to go.  Sigh.

I've had my share of tears.  Well actually I don't think I've been crying enough.  Last night though I had a very good cry on my friends' shoulder... thank you friend.  I need to just break down sometimes, it really helps.

Well, to discuss this week would be to time consuming and I want to head to the hospital before it gets even later... it's already 9 at night.

Wishing you happy tears.

Awww...poor Michael! I hope things straighten out for him soon. I'm praying for all of you guys. Hows it going with the other kids at home?

Glad you have got good friends to cry on when you need to and glad Michael has got you guys as his mommy and daddy to hug him through his tears. Hang in there and give Michael hugs from me too - still praying...

My Mom and I continue to pray regularly for Michael (and Ian and you and Mike and Libby and Samuel). Thanks for making the effort to write in your blog and add pictures. Much appreciated!

Jennifer,
You don't know me, but my mom and your grandmother Shirley Wratten are good friends and your Aunt Leigh and I were in youth group together years ago and hung out together (a lot of good memories)...Anyway, my husband and I pray for you and your family! I enjoy reading your blog site and you've inspired me to start my own...I find it's such a good outlet if given the time...
