I've always been a praying woman. Not just when things are tough. I pretty much have conversations with God all the time. But I have to admit, this week, I feel angry with everything. I'm at a loss of what to do with all these emotions. The tears are pouring out. It's overwhelming. Especially when bad things are happening to kids so close to my heart. It sucks when your hands are tied and there's absolutely nothing you can do. It sucks to watch your friends go through such hard times. It sucks to turn another corner only to find out more bad news. It sucks.
So, I'd like to ask all of you to lift these precious babies up in your prayers as well. I believe in prayer. I believe God heals. I've witnessed it. And I know its important not to lose your faith in times of struggle. Its just terribly hard not to. For me. At this time anyway. Kids should not hurt. They just shouldn't. It sucks.
Please remember our dear friends Holly, Eric, and Caleigh as they face some tough decisions in the upcoming weeks.
Please remember Reagan and her family as they still search for answers. That precious baby and her family have been through way too much recently.
Please also remember our Pastor's son Tristan Dasch as he continues his battle with Leukemia. The Lord healed him once, and we pray he will do it again.
And finally, a little boy who is very dear to one of my best friends, Liz. His name is Corey. He is 3 and full of spunk and life. Last week he was admitted into the ICU at Cooks with high fevers and seizures. For lack of a better diagnosis, they believe it to be some sort of viral encephalitis. The seizures have not let up. He is now on a ventilator, and struggling. Please pray for fast resolution and healing. And NO long term brain damage.

It seems my son and husband are lost in the video game world. I just don't get it. Kamden won a PS3 at Karate. We recently bought a new TV and moved his Wii into his room with our old TV. They are playing non-stop and I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!
Justin has never really been into video games. I think I took that for granted. But now he's hooked on some stinking game with guns and war and I think its called Modern Warfare, but whatever it is, I think its absurd.
So, that's what's been going on around here. Me having to say the same thing over and over again until they acknowledge me. Its amazing how BOTH of them can tune everything out, and the house could be burning down, and they'd still be thumbing the controllers. Again. Its absurd.
I can't really complain about Justin though. He works hard and isn't one of those guys who has to go out with his friends all the time. (that's me!!) He definitely does pull his weight around here. So, I guess if he needs to play video games as his escape, I can live with it. But I'm hoping its just a phase!!!
School's back tomorrow after a 4 day break for Kamden, so his video game hiatus is officially over. Thank goodness.
Kendall is doing much better. Still lagging in the sleep department...but she's not near as fussy. Her sugars are crazy wacky, and we will be going to the insulin pump after our next appointment for sure. Last night we corrected since she was at 268 and she woke up this morning with a sugar of 36. Ugh. But the hives are gone and her smiles are back. We may have escaped another hospital stay for now.
I'm ready to get back to "normal" and the beautiful weather we are expecting this week sure helps with my spirits.
Hope everyone has a fantastic week.

As you know, my sister and I are huge fans of the band Train. Apparently that has rubbed off on my kids! Kamden loves to perform for the camera (if you can't tell) and he loves singing to his sister even more. So, I got a giggle when this is what he came up with the other night after Kendall finished her "breakfast in bed."
Honestly, its not my favorite song on the latest album. But Kamden apparently knows the words...sorta.

So after having a crying fit in the parking lot, I pulled myself together enough to get home. I did get it worked out and picked up last night. But the problem is I will probably have to go through the same thing next month. AND in two weeks at another pharmacy for her insulins. Hopefully I can get the local compounding pharmacy to fill everything all in one place. Maybe then the turn over of pharmacists won't be as bad as CVS. Something needs to change if I'm going to stay sane this year.
