I have to take a break...

Unfortunately my son is not doing very well and I'm forcing myself to take a break from blogging and computer time in general. Though I already spend 90% of my day at the hospital, I've still managed to keep up with posting, however we have just been dealt some bad news in terms of Jacob and his long term health. Most of you know he was born 3 months early, back in May, and we have still not been able to leave the NICU here in Albuquerque, creating a very difficult living situation for all involved, which may be made worse in the near future. I will try to post an update in the next few days, just because I know a lot of you are praying for my little man and I know how much he needs those extra prayers. I'll be back as soon as I can think straight, promise.

we just ran across your blog from "a peek at my bookshelf"...

we live in salt lake city where Primary Children's Hospital is located... i am sure the nicu there is top notch but sometimes as happens children get transferred here from all over..we pray that it wont be necessary, but if it does you'll have friends up here (lodging assistance too)...

may God comfort your family..give strength to your little guy..may God give wisdom to the doctors...may God touch your son with healing hands................

we'll follow the posts, and figure how to get in touch if we need to..

Hi Amanda,
I don't think we've actually met, but I'm Joe's wife and you've met Kayla before. Joe's been keeping me updated on Jacob and I just wanted to say I'm sorry to hear the latest news. Please know our prayers are with you all.

Love, prayers and good thoughts to you all.
