I Made It!


But I made it!

After a morning of trying to find a sitter, feed Makenzie, get her ready, talking to the GI nurse, pediatrician,and home health care company, rescheduling PT for next week, getting 4 kids out the door into the car, I found myself driving down the highway just thankful I was still breathing! Deep breaths!

I made it in record time only to find out the time they gave me was an hour off so I now I had time to kill! HAHAHA!!! Oh well!

But made it!

Then it was back to get the boys and home to feed Makenzie.

She ate 2 oz of her new food in about 10 min! That is a record time! I think she would have eaten more but I was so happy with her success that I just quit on a happy note!

I am glad that I did stop because she seemed a bit uncomfortable afterwards. This food has a ton of calories in it so I am sure I shocked her stomach! She did not throw up however which was GREAT! I just couldn't believe how fast she ate it! SO PROUD!!!

I sit here right now thinking about my day! Thinking about how stressed I was this morning! About how much work it is to do something so seemingly simple. Now my day is done and all of the kids are peacefully sleeping and my day feels like it was all just a dream!

But I made it!

Tomorrow will be another day filled with more of the same. We have a DME Expo to go to in the morning. For those of you that wish I would speak in English,... DME is Durable Medical Equipment, ie: gait trainers, standers, wheel chairs, feeding chairs, and much more! There will be many different retailers there with info on funding and product information! I am really excited! I always look forward to adding more info to my arsenal of things that can help Makenzie.

So tomorrow will be insane again.


"We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you."
(Psalm 33:20-22, NIV)

Dear Father,
Thank you that we can put our hope in you, for you are indeed a trustworthy God. And yet, Lord, there are many days when we look to the future and are filled with more fear and anxiety than we are with hope. We have so many questions about Makenzie's future and about our own. But your Word says that if we cast our cares upon you, you will be faithful to sustain us (Psalm 55:22). Help us to remember that Makenzie is in your hands, and that you love her more than we ever could. Help us to remember that as we entrust Makenzie fully to you knowing that you can lift her higher than we ever could through our own efforts. Cause our hearts to rejoice in you today, Lord, and to bring us great hope for the days ahead.
In Jesus' Name,
