So far so good

August 2, 2013

I got to journey out to Washington state last week in search of a house and a job.  I was able to find both!  We put an offer in on a house and it was accepted!  I interviewed for a job on Friday morning and was offered the job Friday afternoon!  It will be less call overall (5 days in a 6 week cycle).  It is about 20 min away from where we will be living but that's alright.  I have a 30min response time so that will be alright and if I feel like I wouldn't be able to make it they have a sleep room available.

I got to see my Matt for nearly 6 days and it was nice!  It was hard to say goodbye to him but I was eager to get home to my big bed and puppies!

When I got home I thought Jakey was mad at me because he only half smiled.  Then I started watching him a little closer and noticed that his third eyelid was coming up every time he blinked.  It appeared that the left side of his face was not working properly.  I called the vet and we decided that since he was able to eat and drink and didn't appear to be in any distress that it could wait until the morning, but if anything changed that I should call her right away.

I brought my Jakey to the vet and we learned that it could be an inner ear infection.  He cried a lot when she tried to examine his ears (he's never cried during an ear exam).  She tested all his cranial nerves and they were all intact except for one.  She put him on antibiotics for 14 days and 28 days of steroids!  She hit him very hard with steroids.  40mg/day for 7 days and then tapering down after that.  It's a wonder my buddy can sleep!  This is day 5 of antibiotics and steroids and I'm noticing that his lip seems to be functioning a bit better.  He used to have trouble getting his lip out of his teeth and now has no trouble.

I had an ultrasound on Wednesday that was amazing!  I am officially released from my RE!  Our baby has long legs!  Thankfully my doctor makes a video of every visit and I was able to upload it to you tube so Matt could see it.

I'm so in awe of this little life growing inside me.  Each time I see the baby move and see that little heart beat away I praise God.  This child is intimately know by our Father since He began to knit this child together.  Each movement this child makes our Father is aware of.  I'm so in awe that God chose me to be this child's mother.  I pray that I will be a Godly mother and that God will continue to put His desire in my heart to know Him more and to praise Him daily!
