Cracks In The Logs

The New Year is blowing through the cracks in our cabin, and the wind smells of change. Of change and opportunity and purpose. We can almost taste it. 

The wind blew so strongly, quite spinning us all around, so that the direction that we found ourselves facing, was a completely fresh one. 

And the new view, is pretty exciting! 

 Although not all the changes are thrilling, when we think of Leo's upcoming cranial surgery, we feel overwhelmed and scared. The thought of our poor fellow's noggin going under the knife once again is daunting.

But the winds of change have caught us up, and we can only speed along with it. 



(with our trusty sidekicks and dear friends in tow)

 That though the wind may uproot us, and shake us about, that it will also deposit us gently, right in that place where we need to be. 

Leo is doing grand, although he and and some others of us have been battling a respiratory virus for the past couple weeks, which in addition to the coughing and runny nose, also has the added perk of losing your voice. At least it's been quieter around here. But that's the only thing that's been quiet. Our new year has started with a bang when we completely, and spontaneously, jumped into a new housing direction for us in the next couple of months. Though we will be sad to say goodbye to this cabin where so much as happened to us, where we have lived every extreme imaginable, it's time. Time to let go of the trauma, time to live. Let's go wind!

(by the way, no results as yet from the EEG, and we meet with surgeons next week!)


  1. I love this post, the pictures...and the words! Exciting, daunting, and ever with the wind! Stay warm this week...keep drinking :-)
    Love to you all

  2. keep us posted; we hope with you!

  3. we continue to place Leo into the loving arms of our Lord Jesus every morning, without fail.

Lost In Summer

It has been a long time...maybe the longest since I have written to you all last. This blog has meant many different things to me over the past seven years, in fact, it has taken as many different manifestations as its subject matter, Leo the little lion! Not so little anymore, in a couple weeks he will be seven years old.  And so will this blog!  It is amazing to think back to the frightening beginning of it all, and to realize that never in a hundred years could I have pictured myself now, sitting and typing this post at my sunny kitchen table, in my own house, while the early morning sounds trickle in from the open porch door and mingle with the voices of my children in the other room. Not one child, as we all thought seven years ago, but two.  Seven years ago, Leo was not going to live to his first birthday. He was not going to be able to talk sweetly to his big sister, as I hear him doing right now. Though I'm sitting in the other room, I can picture them both clearly; his s…

For The NICU

So you guys know that September is the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) awareness month right?  Yeah, I didn't know either.  Every month there is some disease or disorder that we should worry, promote, and be aware after awhile all that awareness stuff gets tiring... But this is the first time I've heard of an awareness month for a place, rather than a physical condition. What's up with that? How come we need an awareness month for a section of the hospital? We have an awareness month for breast cancer, not the cancer ward why the NICU? I'm pretty sure there is a preemie dedicated month, and one for every other condition that may have put the infant in the NICU in the first place, so why the preferential treatment? After thinking about it for awhile, the only reason I could come up with for the need of this awareness of a place, is that the place itself has inherent issues that people (especially potential NICU parents) should be aware of. No…
