The last week has been eventful as always at our house! Never a dull moment. Nana came for a fast trip on Wednesday and left on Friday. It was so fast I did not even find the camera while she was here. Will have to do better next time! On Friday, I took Sarah to the GI doctor to try to get her diarrhea under control. They said she was impacted and we had to start a colon clean out. Saturday morning we got up ready to start. Things seemed ok until Mommy hit the dust. I spiked a temp, got achy, then started a horrible cough. I was confined to the bedroom. Doug had to handle the colon clean out, kids, and mommy all by himself. He did a great job. On Sunday, Sarah got the flu bug. Not good with the colon clean out, but we continued. On Monday we were suppose to have a visit with Isaac's birthfamily. We had to cancel. I felt so horrible because I know they were so excited to visit. By Monday afternoon, Doug had the flu. Now who is going to care for us? I was some better, so I took over. Tuesday things seemed better on the flu front. I was better, just weak. Sarah still was not cleaned out, so we scheduled another x-ray for Wed and was told to be prepared to be admitted for a more agressive clean out. Wed morning we got up, Doug went to work for the 1st time this week, Elijah went to school and Sarah, Isaac and I headed to Vandy. Praise the Lord, Sarah was all clear!!!! We got Elijah from school and the flu bug struck again. Elijah has the flu now. I refumigated the house with lysol. Elijah and Sarah have been playing well today, and Isaac and I are staying downstairs away from the sickies!!!!!!
We are a family of five who have been blessed by God. Doug and I were married in 2002 and immediately wanted to start a family. God blessed us with our son Elijah in 2003 through the beauty of birth. Elijah loves to play outdoors and to play with his Nitendo. We were blessed with Sarah in 2007 through the beauty of adoption. Sarah has Down syndrome, but is not defined by it. She is proving all of the statistics wrong and is growing and achieving at a record pace. We were blessed with Isaac in 2010 to complete our family. He is also adopted and has Down syndrome, excited to watch him grow!! Doug is a utility forester with the local utility company. I, Robyn, am a stay at home mom who is never at home. I am a Young Living Essential Oils Independent Distributor and I love my oils! Elijah in the sixth grade and loves all things mindcraft and Star Wars. Sarah is 9 and in the 2nd grade. Isaac is almost 5 and doing preschool work. We are a homeschooling family that lives life to the fullest. I love my life and I am so blessed.
