Baby update

Our little Aliyah is 6 and a half weeks old.
We saw her specialist today.
He has ordered another test, an Isotope Renal Scan.
Her right kidney enlargement is what is of concern to the Dr.

He said he thinks she will need surgery. This test will give him more of an idea of what needs to be done.

Needless to say, I am nervous and worried. I am not ready to put my baby under the knife.
If this is what she needs, we will. But it will be a very difficult decision.

Oh, Lord grant us the wisdom to care for these blessings entrusted to us! Amen.

Happy Us Birthday

Today is our "birthday" AKA wedding anniversary.

My wonderful hubby has been a strength and blessing; we complete each other beautifully.

Happy birthday Honey!
I Love You!

so much more

"We were meant to live for so much more"

Yesterday we were given the terrible news a dear friend, like a brother, commit suicide.

He must have been drunk to do it the way he did. In front of his fiance, on his knees in a room in their house, he shot himself in the heart. He hadn't acted as tho something was wrong, they ate dinner together Sunday night, cleared the dishes and he said, "I'm tired of living with the pain." (He had back surgery 6 years ago or so and had been living with pain since.) Then he went into the other room, got down on his knees, his fiance followed him so he told her leave. She said no, and he pulled the trigger anyway. That's the story we have heard.

It's so hard to grasp. I can't seem to bend my mind around this one.

Usually people wonder what they could've done
I don't feel that way since we are states away, but I do wish I knew more how to help the rest of the family!

If you are thinking of hurting yourself, please talk to someone!
Wheather or not you realize it, you'll be hurting more than just yourself.

As I am schooling my 7 year old in Arithmatic, she is a little confused on a problem.
She always acts a little sulky when she doesn't understand something, so she is simply sitting.
I explain it to her and she begins to work quickly.
She says, "This is easy!"
Then leaning, giving me a hug she says,

"You are useful sometimes Mommy!"
