I'll take 20!

I need to give a big shout out to all my praying friends and family.  I got so many responses from you, all promising to pray for my Jude and our family.  A few of you even offered dinner.  I am overwhelmed by all of your love!

I can't say that Jude woke up this morning feeling 110% better this morning.  It was more like 20%, but hey, I'll take 20!  Some improvement is better than no improvement.  Plus I know he will be even better tomorrow.  Still the same, I just cancelled his therapy appointments for tomorrow because I know he is pretty weak and don't want to hinder his healing process.

He was a little bit more comfortable today and not crying constantly.  He tolerated his feeds better, but shows no interest in eating by mouth.  Totally expected but a little worrisome.  I just pray he retains the progress he made with eating before he got so darn sick.

"Papa" came in from work about an hour ago and has been pulling Jude around the property in the wagon.  Jude was set up!  He had his pillow pet and his blankie in the wagon with him.  We even got a couple smiles as he got in the wagon.  The wagon ride is good for him because the bumps and vibrations work like a vibrating vest to help break up some of the congestion in his chest.  Plus, Jude just loves being outside, so this is really good for him! And our hearts needed to see a smile.  For those of you that don't know Jude, he is always extremely happy and all smiles.  So when he goes for days without a smile, I realize how much I depend on them everyday.

Another answered prayer:
Lane's work announced today that starting next week they should have enough work to go back to 40 hours!  And when all the materials for the projects come in, they should even have some overtime!  This is such good news.  Praise the Lord for all His blessings!  So for now we gonna just enjoy these mini at home vacations.  

As my father-in-law ALWAYS quotes
"... I have never seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging for bread."
Psalm 37:25

I did some bloggy updating today.  Whatcha think?  I can't promise that it will stay this way for long, but I was a little bored with what was up there.  I can't wait until Aubrey Lane is sitting up better and we can update our picture on the pier for the blog.
