Last night I spent some time in another hospital chair, this time with my friend Aimee. She has watched Grayson for me on numerous occasions and been such a help in our lives over the past six months. Aimee gave birth to a baby boy yesterday and had a really crazy and rough day as they learned that their sweet baby boy had a heart condition and needed to be transferred to a local children's hospital. The first procedure went well, but the next few days are critical as they take him off meds and see what his heart is capable of on its own. Will you please surround Aimee, Tom, and sweet baby Joshua with prayers? Will you pray that people step up and watch their two other daughters while they try to navigate this crazy path? Thank you in advance. I will post updated prayer requests when I have them.
The new job is going well, but I developed mastitis (a.k.a. feel like death syndrome) for the third time last week and had to call in sick on orientation. I hate calling in sick, and I hate calling in sick on orientation even more. The tasks and the charting feel overwhelming, but the location feels like home. It is good to see familiar faces. I know the newness will wear off and I will once again become efficient and not look like such a deer in headlights, but until then I am taking it one step at a time and trying to take it all in.
Jon and I have decided to go on a medical missions trip with our church. I am so excited to be able to bring some of the skills and knowledge that I have, and I am also excited and petrified to have my world rocked. I am always in need of a reminder of how good we have it and how fragile life is. I am so easily consumed by the tasks and trials of day to day life, that sometimes I lose sight of the big picture. I am hoping God can use the trip to help me focus on the big picture for a long stretch of time. I hope my heart breaks and I am able to love, pray, care for, and teach the people God surrounds me with. I hope that they are able to teach me as well. We are really in the beginning of this process and could totally use prayers as we move forward.
Grayson and I will be flying to Florida in May to visit a friend. Any tips on traveling with a 7 month old?
With all this rain and flooding, we now have no doubt that our summer project is to demo the "finished" basement and look into waterproofing solutions. Please let me know if you would like to practice your sledgehammer skills.
My brain is fried. I am going to go shower before Grayson wakes up and hope that this is not his long nap for the day because this momma still wants to sleep for a little bit before work. Fingers crossed.
