We are on the mend!


We are on the mend around these parts and we could not be happier. Worth's unexplained fever has now gone. He went to the hospital twice, as you know, and the doctor twice. He had blood work and flu testing done. There really is no answer besides his hand probably had a slight infection and he might have picked up some sort of virus in the waiting room of the hospital. So far BellaRose and I are doing fine so prayerfully we did not get any of the sickness. It feels so good for all of us to be healthy.
Sweetie Baby is on the verge of doing something big, we can just tell. She is getting antsy and squirmy, and she wants to be on the move. We think that crawling will be in the near future and our world and house will be forever changed. I was telling Becky the other day that no one day is the same as the other with a baby. I think about that a lot. She is changing daily. I can't believe she is 7 1/2 months old. Our lives are constantly ebbing and flowing. Through tragedy, sickness, health, happiness, life goes on, babies continue to grow and get strong. Before we know it she will be walking and talking. I think we are ready, if not it will happen anyway. Let the games begin!


This is a picture of Worth's thumb today. I finally can share a picture of it for all the world to see. It is getting better. It is still pretty gross looking and he can't feel some parts, but it seems all major tendons are okay. Thank you for all of your prayers. We feel very blessed to have friends and family like you in our life!

So glad that things are looking up around there. I have to say though, you as the mother bear have held together greatly.

i keep coming to your blog to comment, but every time i see worth's finger, i freak out and go "back." i just made a mad dash to the comment bar. i seem to be overly squeamish lately. i'm glad he's feeling better.

it's a little ridiculous how cute your child is. seriously.
