I was up with the boys from before 1 a.m. until a bit after 3 a.m. I tried everything I knew to try, even thought about giving Judah some of his narcotic, but am glad now that I decided not to.
Finally, I brought up two sippies of warm milk and both of them did not wake up again during the night last night.
My poor husband is having to get up at 5 a.m. the past two mornings to be at a client in Germantown. He was gone yesterday and will most likely be gone today and the rest of the week 12 hours of our day. This makes for an especially long day for me with the boys.
I have been sorely tempted and must confess have not done a great job in the last several days of overcoming these temptations toward anger, bitterness, despair, grumbling, self-centeredness and some more anger. My husband has received the brunt of all of it really, and I'm sure I am not helping him to extend love, mercy and compassion to me; although, he is doing just that.
We continue to covet your prayers for us spiritually along with all the physical stress our circumstances have placed on us.
Today, Judah will be getting his stitches out, God willing, and I'll have an opportunity to follow up with Dr. Carson's P.A. Please pray that Judah's incisions are closed well enough to have his stitches removed and continue to pray for no infections or complications with his shunt.
