Ryan’s Miracle Watch 1/18/20

When he was around two years of age, Ryan asked me, “Where does poo come from?”. I was a little uncomfortable, but gave him an honest explanation. He looked a little perplexed, and stared at me in stunned silence for a few seconds and asked, “And Tigger?”.

I actually saw this on FB, and immediately thought about Ryan, because he used to think and say things that made me laugh all the time. He’s made many people laugh throughout the years. Laughter is good! Daily laughter keeps the doctor away ever after…or something like that…

Ryan’s blessed to have nurses that care about him. They’re rallying to cover some of the shifts until we can find a new nurse for him. I would’ve been watching him tomorrow, but his day nurse is going to stay 4 extra hours, and the night nurse is coming in 4 hours early. I might just sleep in…

Oh! And the night nurse came in half an hour early tonight, so I’m going to bed now…

Y’all sleep well. I know I’m gonna….

There are many definitions for the word “BALANCE’, but the following is my favorite:

noun:   harmonious arrangement or relation of parts or elements within a whole

Harmonious arrangement…

I got to spend 16 hours with Ryan today. He slept through the first eight, and was awake the last eight. That’s balance…

Most people, when asked the question, “If you could go back and change anything in your life, would you?”, they say no. I don’t think they’re being honest, but who am I to say…nobody. I’m in the minority, because there are a few things I would change. For starters, I’d go back and clean up the areas where things were out of balance…family time vs work vs play vs whatever. Oh! I’d also go back and invest money into Google, Apple, Amazon, etc. Yeah, I’d change a few things…

Ephesians 5:15   Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise.

Baby it’s cold outside, and about to get colder. Supposed to be in the low to mid forties tomorrow, with rain. Love it, but will need to keep a close eye on Ryan’s vitals to make sure he doesn’t react adversely to it. So far (knock on wood, or my forehead), he’s been weathering (pun intended) the storm really well.

Tomorrow, I begin watching him for two shifts in a row…but only tomorrow and Friday. Then, just the afternoon shifts on the weekends…that is, until we get a new nurse to fill the vacancy. Your continued prayers are appreciated.

Speaking about continued prayers…remember to pray for all those who are in need of Christ in their life. Your prayers DO make a difference!

Sleep well our friends! May God grant you a peaceful night’s sleep. And, to those of you in other parts of the world, who are already enjoying a new day, may God grant you a day full of miraculous discovery!

No luck on finding a new nurse for Ryan as of yet, but his current nurses are willing to help out a little until we find someone. Any little bit helps…but again, I don’t mind hanging out with Ryan as much as I can. How many parents can say they get to see their adult children as much as I do? Not many. It’s a blessing, though I’d rather he be healthy if it meant giving up some time with him. I’m pretty sure y’all won’t fault me for that…

Love you children as much as you possibly can…and make sure you tell them as much as you show them…and vice versa…

Ryan’s Miracle Watch 1/12/20

Ryan and I will be on our own for two weeks straight. Don’t know how we’ll survive without food for that long, but we’ll manage somehow. Lots of movies, music and parteeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! Woo hoo!!! Not really. We’ll be sitting around having quite time together…

I enjoyed watching Ryan today. It’s the first time in a while I’ve gotten to watch him during the afternoon shift, and he was awake pretty much the entire time. He is such a pleasant person to be around. He smiled ever so briefly a couple of times, but I’ll take it. Thank you Lord for giving him such a beautiful smile. Please allow me to see it much more often. I promise not to take it for granted…

Ryan’s Miracle Watch 1/11/20

It’s nurse Bernard’s last day today, so tomorrow I’ll be taking on four additional shifts until the agency finds a new nurse. Please pray they find someone quickly, because I know Ryan doesn’t want to see me any more than he already does…

Philippians 4:19   And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6   Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

Took Ryan to wound care nurse for follow up on the hole in his arm. The hole has closed and is on the mend. It was supposed to have taken a couple to few months to get to this point, so I’m thinking it’s a miracle it’s to this point. AMAZING! I’m so happy he’s not in any pain. Young people heal so quickly. I wish it was the case for old people like me. Now, if only the rest of Ryan would heal as quickly…maybe one day…

Some days just feel out of order. Don’t know why, but know God is always in control and, therefore, I do not worry. I don’t worry, anyway, because I feel if I’m going to worry, I may as well get off my (*&%&^$ and try to do something about it.

Ryan had an amazing day with me today…other than a mild seizure this morning. It’s a good thing for medicine that works so swiftly to suppress a seizure’s symptoms. Thank you Lord, for giving some people the gift of figuring out medicines and cures for things that afflict people like Ryan…and other symptoms!

Y’all know what your gift is! The Holy Spirit tells you what it is. You know what yours is! USE IT! You won’t regret using it, because it’s what GOD wants. And, what GOD wants is the best…for you and everyone else!!
