tough day

today has been a pretty rough day. i am very sore from the two rounds of steroid shots,'s all worth it in the end. i am continuing to do an hour of hydrotherapy every day (the only thing my doctor is allowing me to do while on bed rest). for those of you unfamiliar with hydrotherapy, i was right there with you. hydrotherapy is where you are submerged in water to your shoulders in a heated pool. this has been known to help blood flow increase/restore. luckily, my sister in law and mother in law have been keeping me company while i stand in a pool for an hour. i gotta say...pretty boring when you are all by yourself!

speaking of, did i mention that i have been on bed rest "officially" for 3 days and i already am going crazy. lucky for me, my dad came armed with bagels and movies to help get me through the day today. ordinarily, if i was working, bed rest would sound so delightful; however, when you are forced to stay laying down, only to get up to go to the bathroom, shower and eat, it is quite possibly the hardest thing to do ever.

destiny and reggie (along with Alivya) came over to the house this evening and brought us yummy enchiladas and brownies. for those of you who don't know the alfonso''re missing out! they are quite possibly the kindest people ever. oh, and destiny is one fantastic cook!

we appreciate your continual thoughts and prayers as we are still living day to day and week to week. again, gavin's next big milestone is getting to 28 weeks. that will be april 13th. come on buddy...keep on growing!!!!

"...but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. and hope does not disappoint us..."

  2. My mom and I are thinking of/praying for you, Jeremy, and your little guy.
    Is there a chain/group of people scheduled to bring you and Jeremy meals right now?
    I love you girl and absolutely love the songs on your blog!
    You and Jeremy are amazing people.
    God is good in good times and bad.
    He is faithful.
