On the mend
Hopefully this isn’t jumping the gun but I think Audrey is on the upswing today. She started eating again about 3 AM after about 35 hours of just a few ounces of milk. I feel like I held my breath for a whole day as I waited and watched and really hoped we weren’t headed for another few days in the hospital that would this time include Christmas.
Between the snow and her not feeling well, it hardly even feels like it’s almost Christmas around here. We haven’t done the homeschool projects that revolved around Christmas, we sledded every day instead. Snow days aren’t the same either with a commission job instead of salary, definitely changes the perspective a little bit! We haven’t done much of our baking either. There has been so much change for us the past two months that I still feel my head spinning and it’s hard to figure out how to move forward sometimes.
It used to be a long list of expectations on our time during the holiday season of where we needed to be, now we have total freedom to be and do what we’d like to. That is wonderful but still so different and strange.
Trying to smile. Thankful for an eating baby. Remembering to just breathe. Comforted that Jesus came and He understands it all even when I don’t.
