Well to make it short and sweet, we have been really busy. Mary had to spend some time in the NICU after she was born over 3 weeks ago. She has what is called Hirschsprung's Disease. We spent 5 days in the NICU before she was diagnosed with this disease. She is doing very well now after having had surgery. We feel very blessed to have so many people praying for our family during this difficult time. Also our church family brought us dinner for 2 weeks, and showed us kindness in so many other ways.Whew! It has been quite an ordeal and we are glad to have Mary home after spending 9 days in the hospital. The kids adore their new baby sister! She is quite adorable and a perfect addition to our family.
This week has been hectic. Our van died on Saturday. For the past couple of weeks it had been doing some strange things. It ended up being the alternator which we had checked just a week earlier. So we have been without a vehicle for a few days. I even had to miss church because there was only so much room in husbands work truck. BOO! I am happy to say that it may be fixed as early as today, just in time to make it to get some extra preaching in tonight. Our church is having a guest preacher come and preach for us tonight. YAY! I hate missing church.
Next week my family was suppose to take a trip to Utah to be apart of my sister's wedding. BUT because of everything that has been going on those plans are changing. Of course I want to make it to this important special occasion. Sometimes God has a different plan. So far the back up plan is for me to fly there with Mary. Hopefully all of the specifics will work out so I can be there next weekend.
I have to say that there fails to be one dull moment in our family. And I feel blessed to share these moments with such a great bunch!!
