Day 137: Wow! My cup is overflowing!
Well, my first afternoon/evening with all three of the kiddos since Madison had her g-button placed.... Needless to say I still have a full sink of dishes, laundry all over the floor, and two kids still awake! Mornings and evenings are insane for Madison. In the morning, I administer three oral meds through her g-button, 5 meds through her broviac lines, a feed through her g-button, apply three meds to her bottom, and three to her body...... In the evening, I do all of that plus two more oral meds through her g-button, one more IV med, a g-button dressing change, and hook her up to TPN that runs throughout the night. In the midst of all of that, I'm bathing all three kids.....and getting their pjs on.
Thankfully, I didn't lose a kid in the apartment and they are all clean! Last year at this time I would never go to bed with dishes in the sink or dirty laundry on the floor, but life has changed! The dishes will be there tomorrow and the laundry too! Finishing our busy evening reading our verse of the day, the Christmas story, and praying for Kayley and all of our other friends that are sick. My grandpa has always said, "Sis, my cup is running over and I'm drinking out of the saucer." Today I fully understood that saying! So blessed!
Madison's liver numbers are still really high so more will be done on Thursday. As we are very concerned we know God is in control. Please continue to pray for a calm rest of our year.
Isaiah 9:6-76 For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
will accomplish this

Hi Lash Family! I will be at Costas on Thursday morning with my son. If you need anything from home, I'm glad to snag it on my way to StL from Teutopolis.
