every single day, when i pick matthias up from school, he asks ‘did you get me a treat?’.  and almost always the answer is no, but every once in a while i bring something special.  and here’s a little treat for my sweet friends today-a dumdum just for you.  any flavor you’d like.  and their calorie free, because, um, it’s a photo.  can’t you imagine how yummy, though?



and today is a great day to shopping over at the pleated poppy.  i love her petal pushers.  so dang cute!  and matthias has a crayon roll that has saved us numerous church services/restaurants/waiting rooms.  she’s having an awesome sale, so enter code ‘blissdom’ for 15% anything!




and please, think and pray for david today.  we are visiting a GI doctor down south.  he has been having a lot of GI pain for last month or so and we are hopeful that we can find some answers.  when he’s not hurting he’s so happy, but after eating, reflux, throwing up, and difficult bedtimes have become almost the norm around here.  thank you for thinking of him today–i’ll keep you updated.


*** UPDATE***

Thank you, thank you for your prayers.

I can’t tell you how amazing it is to have friends far and wide that care about us.  The visit couldn’t have gone more smoothly.  We got straight in to see the doctor and right away he sent David over for x-rays.  The x-rays showed at least two partial obstructions in the large intestine.

The reason is because David isn’t able to completely clear his large intestine (get all the poop out) and so it builds up.  Even though he is already on a stool softener, we are ramping it up about 10x to get his bowels completely clear.  I just gave him the medicine–he has no idea what’s about to hit him!  Needless to say, we are staying home for a couple days.  Hopefully he will be MUCH more comfortable after we get through this.

Sending you all big big hugs!!
