I'm not exactly sure what happened to November. My young warrior came home after 3 months overseas, so I was bustling around trying to set up a cozier guest bedroom than he had here a year ago. He ends up in the "Music Room." Sounds great, but after merging two households and then acquiring more and more medical supplies for the grandbaby, the room has become a very large storage closet! It now has full length curtains that are actually hanging from decorative curtain rods! Unfortunately, he still has to sleep on an air mattress on the floor....I'll have three months till he gets to come home again so I'll have to hunt down some sort of bed. A murphy bed would be awesome except the best wall would be the wall the piano occupies, so we'll have to rethink that. With another grandbaby on the way, I need a decent guest bedroom so the babies' other grammy can come visit!
God's timing is amazing as a new day nurse began Monday and walked into the front lines of a battle for Amber. She has been amazing and has advocated for new equipment, made calls to doctors and pharmacies and suppliers, and does everything with such confidence but with a great deal of respect for the babyMomma. We are so glad she came when she did and that she had been out once before on a different visit to see Amber healthy so she could really understand just how sick Pale Peanut has been this week. We would still covet prayers for a full recovery and safe arrival of her baby brother.....due mid-January but probably/possibly earlier than that.
In the midst of all this, we are trying to lift spirits and each day add a little more Christmas. Lights went up last night, just a few white twinklies outside on two bushes and a blanket of lights on a big rock; and candles in the windows. Christmas dishes came out the day after Thanksgiving. These were a gift to the babyMomma last year. They just make us smile.
