You know how parents send messages while praying? Not just messages to Father, but to others listening in the room? Like, "Please help Tommy to stop hitting his sister." That kind of thing. Well, Ellie does that for me. Tonight was a great example. I told Ellie to pray for Mom to feel better since she is sick tonight. Part of her prayer went..."Help Mommy to feel better, bless Jensen, Daddy is being really mean to da kids and I'm really sad, bless baby..." She cracks me up.
Mimi is really sick tonight. Thank goodness her mom is in town through December. We may have to convince her to move in permanently. She is staying with Mimi and baby tonight since Mimi was too sick to come home and just went to sleep.
Mia is doing well. We are learning a lot about this next phase of her life. There will be a lot of busy work with all the meds and feeds. For now Mimi and the baby have 3 appointments per week at the hospital to draw lab tests for monitoring. These appointments are 4 to 5 hours each time! I am sure Mimi would welcome some companionship on these visits so let me know if anyone wants to kick it at the hospital with Mimi and I will hook you up. I am sure her mom will go with her when she can through December. Luckily the quantity of meds and visits should taper off as the months roll by, as we have heard. Mimi hasn't given me the official word on visitors, but the doctors have said that really there shouldn't be visitors at our house for a while other than Grandma/Grandpa and a few others. Time will go by quickly as it always does, and Mia will be healthy and strong and growing. We will have to think up some home projects to keep us occupied here at home. Maybe a second tool shed? A zip line from Jensens bedroom to the Play structure? Surround sound installation? :) I am sure Mimi already has my list, so I won't spend time worrying about what to do with myself...haha mimi.
