Works from Heaven continue still

Last Friday morning I realized that Owen's alarms hadn't gone off like normal through the night. Then I saw his tubes were pretty dry. I looked down and saw that his humidifier was off. Not good! I immediately unplugged it and plugged it back in. Nothing!! Oh great, was my first thought. I got the phone and called the equipment place in SLC hoping the gal was in that we work with. Yes!! She answered the phone, which is pretty rare for her to answer when I call.

She is amazing. I told her our dilemma and she was off to work getting us a humidifier by the next day. That was great and all but Owen shouldn't be off his humidifier for more than 8 hours at a time, but that was the best we could do at the time.

I then called Lenn to tell him what was going on. He had to go to Rock Springs that day. We both started calling people to see if there was anyone in SLC that was coming back the same day. I had no luck, but Lenn had a feeling to call a cousin that he rarely talks to. He asked him if he was going to SLC, he said no, but their Aunts were down there picking up a grand daughter. (There is hope!) Lenn got off the phone and called his Aunt M. She said she was happy to pick it up for us and asked for the address. When Lenn told her the address she could not believe it. His Aunt was literally one block away from the equipment place. She picked it up and brought it that night. AMAZING, if you ask me.

When someone says miracles no longer exist, they just aren't looking. We have been constantly watched over since we have been home with Owen. It is simply amazing to say the least. I know the Lord's hand has been involved in all of it too.
Don't get me wrong, it hasn't been a walk in the park. We have our share of chaos and stress, but along with the chaos and stress we have been carried and watched over. Miracles do exist! We just have to be watching for them.

Our January part 2...

Lenn decided this year he was going to teach Bentley and Abby how to ski. They were so excited to learn. They are doing great and loving it. Every weekend they beg their Dad to take them skiing.
Here is a picture of the ski mobile. This car has been to almost every ski resort in Utah and Lenn is pretty proud of his good ol' metro.

Abby gave Owen a CTR ring for his birthday and he loves it. He is so funny, when you put it on his finger and then hold his hand up to show him, he smiles so big.

I can't get enough of this smile. I love it!

Our January....

January started out fine with Owen's birthday, then it hit and it hit hard! Lenn had been battling sickness for awhile but it was just an annoying cough. The day after Owen's birthday it hit me and it was a bad one. I haven't been that sick in a long time. The day after I went to the doctor I sent Bentley with Lenn thinking he had a sinus infection. Boy was I wrong! The news we have dreaded for three years came. Bentley had RSV. We were so worried that Owen would get it. Bentley had been ordered by the doctor to stay in his room until further notice. Poor kid, but he did it without complaining because he knew he had to protect his little brother. He was a champ. He stayed in his room and Owen got just about everything else but not RSV. We all looked lovely with our masks. I would get a mask and a gown on to take care of Bentley then come out of his room, wash up and go get a new mask to take care of Owen. I felt like I was back in the ICU. We made it though, whew!Luckily Lenn's sister had this tv/vcr. Bentley called it a lifesaver. I am not sure how many movies he watched but he did get his homework done. (His room was in transition, he doesn't really sleep on the floor.)Sick Owen still gave us his smiles.Abby and Owen were watching Beauty and the Beast. Abby came over to comfort Owen during the wolf part. If you look close, Owen is just laughing at her. I thought it was pretty cute.
Owen got a digital photo frame and a wall cling with him and Landry for Christmas. He loves them both. He can't wait for his frame to be turned on in the mornings and will watch it forever. Once in awhile I catch him grinning and I watch his eyes go from his frame to his picture with Landry. He loves his family.
