Doing Better

Mavery did sleep last night. About 1am we woke up to her JUMPING in her bed. I am not sure what she has done, but she has managed to develop this annoying squeak with her crib. So for a long while we got to listen to that, but thankfully she did settle down and slept till her normal wake up time. She is MUCH better today and more herself. The hard thing is just trying to keep her calm. Obviously there is no way to keep a toddler from running around, but they said to try to just not let her get to wild. So when I was switching laundry I turned around and she and Sage had went to the basement and were riding their cars. Which is a no no. Just hard to not let her out of my site. She had climbed on a barstool and jumped off before I could get to her. Stressful for sure. I basically need to have her attached to me, which before Christmas she barely left my side. Of course now she has been following Sage more for the last couple weeks. Thankfully Sage understands english and is doing a good job staying close.

I wish I could say I slept well. Maybe it was how mad I am about what they did on the Biggest Loser, totally not fair if you ask me. Or could have been the chocolate pie & thinking how if I am not careful I myself will need to go on the show. Also worrying about a friend with cancer, which I want to share about. Mostly just thinking of what is going to happen for Mavery.

Mark said the doctor told us that the committee meets today to discuss her case. I hope that we will hear at least tomorrow what they say. I just want to know when. The kids are so full of questions. They all do remember going to see their cousin Graham in the hospital last Christmas and are excited about seeing the train and the toy room and the rooftop garden again. Isn't it funny how kids see things?

I think I am going to enjoy more of that pie for breakfast. Along with the big ole soda Mark brought me from Mc Donalds. I am thinking the good choices will start after surgery. That is fair, right?

Dear Mark and Shannon,
I hope you get this I tried earlier and it didnt appear on your comments, so I must be doing something wrong.

We just wanted to let you know that we are covering Mavery and you all in our prayers.

We want to thank you so much for bringing little Mavery into our family, what a sweet addition.

I know with all my heart as Jeremiah 29:11 says "I know the plans I have for you" that God had that little girl born all the way across the ocean just for time such as this. He knew she would be coming here and she would have a family who would love her.

We're available for any help you might need.

I want you to know how very blessed we were just watching the 3 of you at the hospital and the love between you.

Love you,
Mom Laxton

Oh Shannon...I'm so sorry the news was not better. This is the first time I've been able to sit down and ready all of your posts. I was doing okay until I read what your mom wrote. You are blessed to have such a loving mother! I just know everything is going to be okay. Its scary for sure...but Mavery is in good hands. God has held her in the palm of His hand the many months that Mavery was an orphan and then He placed her by hand into your family's arms. The surgery will go well...and this will all be behind you very soon. Everyone is storming the heavens with prayer for Mavery. She will be okay!!!

If there is anything I can do please let me know!
