Weekend musings

My laundry fairy is coming tonite!!! I am pretty excited, they were last here this summer, so its been a few months. Gideon is so much more interactive now, so I am excited for her to see that as well. Not to mention the laundry is piled up and definitely could use a laundry fairy!!!!

But this means I must get moving and get the house in order for weekend company.

Andrew has to do some off site testing this weekend, so he will end up working late tonite and saturday morning. It will be nice though to have company to hang out with while hes gone.

The xrays for josiahs ankle came back negative, so no break, just a severe sprain. Hes still in a good bit of pain though. He will be on crutches for 2 weeks minimum, then we will reevaluate.

On an up note, Gideon is up 10 ounces!!!! I had him weighed on wednesday, so not even a full week and he was up that much. He is now 15 lbs 10 oz, we will hit that 16 lb mark soon! He really has taken a liking to solids. All of a sudden its like something clicked in his brain and he has started opening his month and eating entire jars full. I have been mixing whatever i give him, yoguart, veggies etc with cereal, so it adds some extra calories in there. So hes eating solids 3 times a day and nursing and given his weight gain, it seems to be working.,

He cooperated for part of the tests they wanted to do. The swallow study was fine, he is swalloing perfectly with no aspiration. But because he refused every type of bottles he was offered, they could not do the upper GI. They wanted to check to make sure he wasnt aspirating afterwards when his stomach is full. Since he is gaining weight currently, t hey arent going to push to do that test currently. His othopedic consult is november 1st and the clinic is still working on scheduling the geneticist. He is a happy little boy and loves his mommy!

God has been providing left and right from a good friend bringing over a meal to people dropping by with miscallneous groceries. Some friends found a bag of bread someone dropped on the side of the road, someone else dropped by some ham, someone bought over a delicious casserole and someone else came by with groceries. I am amazed and very thankful at how people have shown the love of Christ in a very practical way. It makes me feel very loved!

God is good ... all the time!
