Check Up

This morning Liz and Matt take Jesse on her first outing to the doctor.  Jesse is doing great and has not gained or lost any weight since coming home.  Both Liz and Matt felt good after taking with the doctor and having some of their questioned answered. 

Liz also saw her doctor and had her staples removed from the c section.  The removal went fine, but her blood pressure is high.  Please pray that it will go down as high blood pressure can cause seizures, which she has had in the past. 

Both Liz and Jesse are napping now.  Now for what you really want to see the pics.

Just arrived home from hospital on Sunday.

Sleeping peacfully:)
Even Aunt Suzanne's vacuming didn't wake me up.

Aunt Suzanne

Later today my sister will have her first child.  She is being induced as I type.  I am excited and nervous all at the same time.  It will be fun to play the aunt role, but hard not to have a little one of my own to hold and care for.  Please pray that all goes well with baby and mom today.  I will post photos in a couple of days:)

I had my 1st ever colonscopy earlier today.  The prep was no fun at all.  The stuff you have to drink is the worst.  I didn't actually drink it all, shh don't tell.  The good news is my colon looks fine.  The bad news is that we don't know why I have had problems.  In four weeks I will go see my GI doctor and hopefully figure out what is causing the problem.  My guess is food.  I just hope it is not chocolate:)

This week I have been very aware of the simple things I have like clean water and food.  Earlier this week as I was taking my second shower for the day I realized that many people in the world do not have clean water and here I am taking a long second shower.  On Thursday I was on a clear liquid diet in prep for the colonscopy today.  I could have water, tea, broth, jello etc.  It was pretty hard when I was fixing things for the boys and could not have any solid food.  Off handedly as we were having lunch at the pool with friends I said surly I could go one day with out food there are staving people in the world.  We have so much here in American compared to other countries and we don't even think twice about it must days--at least I don't.  Even here in American there are thousands must likely more I don't know the numbers that have no ideal were there next meal will come from.  I feel like God has placed this on my heart this week to do something.  I just don't know what yet.  I will let y'all know when the Holy Spirit reveals it to me because I will need your prayers and help I'm sure.

Happy Belated 4th of July!
