Finding a rythym..............

Just another day today. Randy was gone last night, so I was up every 3 hours to do meds. When Randy is home, he graciously takes 3:30 and 6:30am - it helps so much.

After I get Em off to school, I work for a little bit while Nathan sleeps until about time for his 9:30 meds.

This morning we had a 11:00am Dr. appt. Dr. Caldwell took out Nathan's stitches from his femur and staples from his front pelvis operation - the staples from the back pelvis and hip operation are still in.

After the Dr. appt we came home, had lunch and I headed to work for a couple hours. I also worked a couple hours yesterday, and it felt good to be back at work - I DO love my job!

The Dr. decided to start tweaking Nathan's meds, so pray that it will go smoothly and that he won't have a lot of anxiety about it.

I am amazed daily - STILL - at God's faithfulness, and am reminded every time I drive by the accident site - 1/2 mile from here - at what a miracle God provided in saving my son and protecting his brain and spine!

Keep on praying...........................................

"Just another day". Isn't it interesting how quickly life changes become routine. Who would have thought three weeks ago that you'd ever call giving meds to your son every three hours "just another day!" Another blessing from God, I think. How overwhelmed would we be if life were always, well. . . overwhelming!

And when it becomes overwhelming, we have those things we return to that calm us - like you baking bread the first day you came home. I know how you love to do that.

Thank you, Lord, for the adaptability you built into us. Thank you for the Korthuis' having "just another day." Amen.

This psalm reminds me of you, Janice.
"My heart is steadfast, O God;
I will sing and make music with all my soul.
I will praise You, O Lord, among the nations;
I will sing of You among the peoples.
For great is Your love, higher than the heavens;
Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,
and let Your glory be over all the earth.
Save us and help us with Your right hand,
that those You love may be delivered."
blessings this glorious day!
