I've been awful about keeping the blog updated and I admit... I've considered shutting it down now that our family is complete and we are just living life. But, I also really enjoy writing and sharing both what's happening in our lives as well as my thoughts. I feel like perhaps God isn't finished with our blog yet. So, I am hoping to get back in the groove of things soon here and maybe, there are still a few people out there who are interested. If not, it's ok... I will keep writing for myself.
For tonight, it will be short. I'm feeling yucky. Mark has been under the weather for almost a week. Matthew's emerging from a cold. And hopefully, we are all on the mend.
First, let me say that God is good. I am so thankful for your prayers last week as Maia was hospitalized. We were so concerned that another shunt infection was present. The spinal fluid cultures remained negative for any growth of bacteria and doctors narrowed it down (by process of elimination) to a urinary tract infection. She came home with antibiotics which finished today and I think is finally feeling better. Maia remained a trooper throughout the ordeal, in spite of a nasty reaction to one of the antibiotics.
Matthew is enjoying swimming lessons this evening. He's really doing well. We had quarter end school conferences in late January. His teachers tell us that he is making great progress, meeting his IEP goals. He remains behind his peers, but has come so far. The other night, he counted to 100 for me and loves the counting in Spanish that he learns at Kindergarten Plus.
I'll update more about the kids and what's happening in our world soon. In the meantime, please keep the people of Ukraine in your prayers. My heart aches for the chaos over there.
