Big Prayer Request PLEASE!!!!
I know that I haven't been on here hardly at all posting but I am still checking when I can. It is getting harder now that the babies are mobile...LOL I spend all day trying to keep up with the 3 and then almost all night cleaning. I may get 2-3 hrs of sleep a night if that. Back to the sleeping days with Bradden.

I want to ask you all please pray for Michael. Sat we were moving some things from our old house when he stepped back on to the porch and fell. He had a ramp from the porch to the truck and it shifted as he stepped on it. He fell about 4 feet and landed extremely hard on his elbows and knees. We are still unsure if his elbows are broke b/c of the swelling and fluid. We do know that it tore all the ligaments in his left upper arm. As he land the board flipped and hit him perfectly straight across his entire rib/lung area. There are some bruising and a possible rib cracked. Again there is so much swelling they can't be sure. They are treating it that way though. Today when we returned they found that he had developed a blood clot on his right lung. Please pray for me that the Lord keeps him safe and doesn't let this clot rupture. I am so scared. Please just pray and remember us. A million times the thought has raced through my mind that I am going to be raising 6 los on my own without him. I honestly did not realize my feelings and love for him until Sat. God what would I do without him. He is my life although I get ill at him sometimes.

Thanks everyone and I will update soon. The babies are all well and PRAISE GOD!!! Bradden is all soy now. WooHoo no formula for him. Also another Praise... Bradlee started talking around 3 weeks ago just like he had never had a speech problem. He went from about 15-20 words to talking like a normal 5 yr old saying anything overnight. For the first time in 5 yrs he walked up to me and said "Mommy me love you" I bawled my eyes out right there. God does work miracles but at his own pace.

I am praying for you and Jen I will remember you Thurs. Praying for a quick recovery and comfort.

Mom to Matthew, 01/16/08, GERD baby, has been on Zantac since 2 mos. Aidan, his twin brother, no GERD. Max-ed out on Zantac at 1ml-3 times/day, and switched to Prevacid 15mg split tab 08/20/08. Switched again to 20mg Prilosec 09/18/08 due to Prevacid's restlessness/headache side effects. Reflux was out of control again and had to switch to 10mg Nexium 02/11/09. Good result so far.
I'm so sorry to hear about your husband. We keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayer that your husband would recover soon without any complications. Big hugs to you and the 6 little angels.

PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(

Holy COW Carla, you guys can't catch a break! I am so sorry to hear about Michael. It's good that they caught the blood clot so they can treat him. He is really lucky that they found it in time to (hopefully) stop it in its tracks. *********can't remember the line break**************** That is a MIRACLE about Bradlee! He just wasn't ready to talk is all. Now he has lots to say. This is what they mean when they say not to worry about these things. I guess they come around in their own time. **********take care ~Ronya

Tracey, mom to Katie. Diagnosed with reflux at 3 weeks and put on Zantac. At 8 months old she was removed from Zantac as it was giving her migraines, currently on Prevacid. Switched to Elecare since she is not gaining weight; trialing solids after being off for a month. Geneticist said reason she isn't gaining weight is she is stubborn. Upcoming appts.: Neurologist for developmental delay and EGD scheduled for September. She is one funny baby!
I was wondering how you were doing since I know you had to move. You will be in my prayers!
