Gonna type as fast as I can, because my computer is dying and is not charging for some reason. Hopefully, I can keep the spelling errors to a minimum. Go thumbs go!
Anyway, the reason for not posting the past couple of days is due to Ryan being in the hospital with a bout of pneumonia and some intestinal blockage. He’ll be there for at least another couple of days in order to clean him out of all that ails him. Please pray the antibiotics will kick whatever type of pneumonia he has, and that I can stay awake long enough to make sure the nurses give him the proper attention that the little king deserves. As you know, the name Ryan means little king. It does around here anyway.
Thank you for hanging in there with us. Without you we’d be lost…
I’ll try to get back to my daily musings, but if I don’t post for a couple/few more days, you know why.
Have a wonderful day/week on and with purpose! xoxo
Hey look ma, no spelling airers!
Ryan was happy to see his brother Jacob today. Jake’s home on spring break (Is spring supposed to be capitalized?) Anyway…it’s nice to have him home…and to see Ryan smile for Jake.
So, two days in a row two different nurses called off sick for the afternoon shift. Fortunately, Ryan’s got terrific grandparents to fill in on a moment’s notice. We’re praying that the nurse will show up…
Hope y’all have a nice weekend, full of God’s grace and joy!
Used to have winter fat. Now I’ve got spring rolls.
Truth be told, I’ve still got plenty of fat between the ears. Ryan can confirm…
Nehemiah 8:10 Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.
Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Exodus 15:2 The Lord is my strength and my song; he has given me victory.
Hang in there little buddy!
The pollen is kicking our butts around here. Ryan’s having a difficult time remaining stable. He does well for a couple of days, then back to lots of coughing and a runny nose, etc. All this, despite keeping his room as clean and dust free as possible. Nasty little tiny bits of pollen. There’s rain in the forecast tomorrow. That oughta knock it down…
Before I send out any post, I usually try to hit spell check to make sure there are no errors, but every once in a while I forget and a mistake slips past. I hate spelling errors. you mix up a couple of letters and your entire post is urined…
COURAGE noun: a quality of spirit that enables you to face danger of pain without showing fear
When Ryan first got injured and was at George Mark, we took him into a large hot tub (not too hot) they had, and he seemed to enjoy it very much. When we made accommodations for him here at home, we installed a hot tub and a lift to get him into it, but I haven’t had the courage to put him in. I need to muster up the courage, because I know he would like it, just as he did at George Mark.
Lord, Please give me courage. Amen
The word swims upside down is still swims…
I don’t know why I’m even posting anything tonight, because after a day of celebrating St. Patty’s Day, everything is going to be jibberish…So, you ask, what’s the difference from any other post?? Twoshay!
According to a certain whatever you call it (based on the first letter of your first name followed by your birth month), Ryan’s Leprechaun name is: Restless O’Lucky…Hmmm, don’t know what to make of it…
Why wasn’t Jesus born in Ireland?
He couldn’t find 3 wise men or a virgin. (Hey wait! I’m Irish. Oh, I guess this confirms the thing about finding no wise men. Doh!)
Irish you a happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Hope y’all celebrated the day on and with purpose…as you should every day…
Ryan had a rough day today. The weather warmed up outside, and Ryan warmed up along with it. A few fever and allergy meds later, and he’s feeling a lot better, but he’s not out of the woods yet. I know he will be soon, though, because our prayers WILL be answered in his favor…by His favor…
Please readjust Ryan’s body back to normal in every way. Thank you.
Thank you all for praying this prayer with us…xoxo
With the exception of Wednesday, Ryan has been very alert this week. It’s been encouraging to get good reports from the gal who has been working with him to test his responsiveness. Hopefully, he’ll be alert tomorrow when we host the girls volleyball team from Cal State East Bay. He’s gonna like the ratio of single women to single men…
Is it just me, or are the days/weeks getting shorter? Wasn’t Valentine’s Day just a couple of weeks ago? I’d better get some charcoal the next time I go shopping so I’m ready for July 4th…
Boycott shampoo! Demand the REAL poo!
I don’t think I could ever work in a factory, especially if it has something to do with assembly…that is, unless it was a complete necessity for survival. The same thing, day in and day out would get boring quickly. One would think that watching Ryan day in and day out would get boring as well, but it’s quite the opposite. Even though the routine’s the same, I enjoy looking after him, and to dream of him one day fully restored. I may have to wait until heaven, but until my last breath, I’ll continue to pray for his healing here on earth. This very second, or tomorrow would be nice…
Lord, Please continue to show me what you’re accomplishing through Ryan. Amen
