The Sky is Falling!

The sky is falling, sky is falling, Chicken Little

The roller coaster of life! It is funny how one second you can feel on top of the world and 2 seconds later you feel like world is falling down on top of you!

Today was a day where I swore the sky was falling! Nothing really good nor bad just to much to do! A little girl with a snotty nose who didn't want to eat, 3 boys that did not want anything to do with helping around the house and fought nearly all day, a messy house that needed to be cleaned so that we can put up the Christmas tree, and a tired mommy!

Makenzie seems like she is getting a cold. 2 of the boys have been stuffy and coughing so I am sure that is what it is but she isn't really acting sick other then a yucky nose.

I kind of gave up on the eating thing today. I offered her food and she did eat but not what she needed to, so I just pushed the rest through her G-tube. She seemed to handle that well.

Please pray for patients with this! I am so glad that she is eating but it is soooooo exhausting! It is a puzzle that is really hard to figure out most days! Wondering why she wants to eat one day and not the next. Figuring out how much she is eating and how much she needs in the tube. Trying to decide when she is just not hungry and whether or not I need to add extra formula at night. Worrying about if she is asperaiting. Hoping that she is gaining weight. Feeling like we failed when she wont open her mouth or crys. How far do you push. When do you stop!

God is in control of this but today I was really wondering why it is excatly that I want her to eat! The J tube had become sooo easy! I do want her to eat! I know that nothing with her is fast but as with many other things with Makenzie there will come a day when the tube will become a thing of the past and I will hardly remember the struggles of today! Please PRAY!

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9

The boys are super excited because tomorrow morning the Christmas tree will go up! Now I just have to figure out how to get the tree up the stairs! Haul the boxes of decorations from the storage room, and still have a back! Fun stuff! LOL! I am so excited!

Christmas time is here!

Believe....Prayer Works!
