What about your sister, Kimberly?
Sorry I have been MIA. A lot has been going on...plus I felt a little attacked on this board a while back and because I was (and still am) at a delicate spot in my faith, I haven't been back. But thanks Kimberly, it made me feel good to see my name in a thread, like someone cared:)
DH's grandmother is still hanging in there. She is ready to go "be with Jesus". Her kids, DH's mom and brothers and sister, are not ready for her to go.
I don't know that I said anything about my kids, but I'll tell y'all anyway 'cause that's part of the reason I have been away. DS # 2 had to undergo lots of tests 'cause he was not gaining weight. We've solved the problem with supplementing formula (although I have to say, it has been VERY difficult for me as I am a card carrying member of the LLL). We're still working on what we can do to get him back on breastmilk exclusively.
The other 2 are doing great!
DH is in our future post in Africa right now. Getting to see what it will be like.
BIL is in boot camp in California. He's joined the Marines. Thought you'd like to know;)
Well, thanks for listening...more info than you asked for...sorry:)
KylieMom to Pamela (6-7-94), Seth (1-14-03), & Toby (12-7-04)
Africa, huh? We have some guys deployed there now from our unit. How does he like it so far?
Congrats on your BIL going through boot camp! Let me know when he graduates so I can yell, "ooorrah" at him!
I am sorry to hear of your son's wt gain issues. That is so traumatic. Baby dd went though a phase from 2mo to 4-1/2 mo when she only gained a pound---and she lost a pound. Using formula was the hardest thing ever. I felt like a complete failure. I had a BAD experience with LLL---AKA the Nursing Nazi's. I stuck it out with the hospital LC. We just moved there and our new ped was aweful---we switched but it took time to find a good one. *ugg* I feel for you. Just reading your post made me cringe and recall those months of agonizing.
Thanks for catching us up on g'ma. It sounds like they will take it pretty hard when she does pass away. I just wanted to update my prayer lists before I go on vacation....I'll keep her in our nightly prayer until healing or until she goes to "see Jesus." That is so sweet, just like the faith of a child. I can only hope for such devotion if I am in agonizing pain.
I'm going to conclude my post in your email box! CYE!!
