a day

"A dog pile trial" is something that a friend says happens when a bunch of crazy hard things happen at the same time... When you think that you can't manage one more thing and so you feel so piled upon that you may just as well be under the dog pile.

"Tomorrow's another day and I'm thirsty anyway so bring on the rain."

We hit another road block in finishing our family. We can't catch a break when it comes to this baby making thing. We are doing well. I am feeling better today after a little IV help from the Dr.s yesterday and lots of rest. Daddy is feeling better too, taking on all the roles while I am under the weather means a nurse, back yard worker, kids watcher, worrier, food maker, house keeper, emotional rock and so much more. He got to worry at work today. I really am feeling much better so I hope he's not worrying too much. The kids have no clue and seem to be unaffected. Besides they spent the greater part of the day with Ericka, Zack , Isaac and Debbie Girl, whom they adore. Thanks guys.
I feel happy and totally blessed to have my two little miracles. They make situations like this much more bearable. It would be selfish of me to not feel lucky to have them. Plus I know that I am being comforted by the spirit and can feel Him with us as we heal. It was just a few days ago that we stood in the sealing room and talked about families being together forever and I know it is true.

On another note-Here is a laugh from Ry (the best medicine)

Ry was interested in a conversation my sister was having about a lady who was ill...
They were talking about how she was in the hospital and not doing well.

Pres said-"I really don't think she is going to make it"
To that Ry responded-"huh, to what?"

Gator is also talking so much. I need to catch him on video, singing some time.. It is pretty funny.
We have almost gone an entire month without a visit to the hospital or the doctor's office. I am going to take some treats into the office so we can celebrate and so they don't forget who we are... HAHAHA!

Brynn-Can I do anything to help you? Let me know if I can watch the kids for you or go to the store for you or anything!

Hey, Brynn. I found your blog through Kara's and I found her's from another friend of mine. As you can tell I am a blog stalker! Anyway I had no idea that you were expecting and I am very sorry to hear that things are rough right now. Hope your feeling better soon. I also have a blog if you ever want to check it out and hope that you don't mind me taking a peek at yours!

Brynnie Brynn: I love you. You make me happy just talking to you let alone being around you. Not fair. So sorry. I love your attitude and might I add that you do have a pretty good boyfriend to help you through it. Or get through it with. If I can do ANYTHING, please please please let me. Your 2 little miracles are THE CUTEST! We love you!

What exciting news! My SIL is one of the sickies too (although she seems to be sick her entire pregnancies) and seems to get quite a few IV treatments every few days. That just sucks! But what an exciting time!

I had no idea! I hope you feel better soon. My girls are out in a couple weeks, we would be happy to come snatch your kids for the day. Feel better soon, it is rough being themom and being sick! HUGS---

I'm so sorry about the loss. I know you're a strong person and can get through the heartache- I just wish you didn't have to be!

I'm really hoping you can get out from under that dog pile soon. I don't know when the relief will come but I do promise you that it will. Until then it's that darn enduring thing we wish we could just do without.

On the upside, we're never given hard trials without some pretty amazing blessings at the end of them. I can't wait to see what amazing gifts are waiting for you BECAUSE you endured and remained faithful. That's certainly something great to anticipate!
