Monster at the door

Every once in a while, you get the opportunity in life to see something that others will never see.  Tonight my wife calls on my way home from work. “There’s a huge spider on the porch!  It’s as big as a tarantula!” Of course she was exaggerating….  so I thought.  I told her to save…

The Refiner’s Fire

There are tragedies in this world that nobody ever expects will happen to them.  It’s always someone else that experiences tragedy.  Yesterday, tragedy hit far too close to home.  My sister-in-law, Liz, and her husband, Zac, just experienced one of the most difficult tragedies.  They lost their little baby before they even got to experience…

Good news about Jaxon

We got a great call from the NICU today. They said that they had started feeding Jaxon and that he had already eaten all the milk Emily had pumped there at the hospital. So they wanted us to bring some more milk and we could be there for the feeding. So Emily and I went…

More on Jaxon: staying a little longer

We got some not so good news today from the neonatologist. Jaxon is doing really well, but he sometimes forgets to breath (I know… sleep apnea already). Apparently that is quite common among “early arrivals.” Their policy is to not release the baby from the NICU until the child hasn’t done that for 7 days…
