schedule and scare...

Hi Friends!

Well by looking at my previous post I'm feeling a little convicted about not technically "slowing down" our schedule... but I do feel as if our daily lives have slowed down a notch which is good. We have had several house showings lately which keeps my vacuum in good working condition and gives us hope that we will sell soon (:

We are working hard on scheduling Evie's appointments through the end of the year as there are some things we need to get done before January 1st for multiple reasons. 1. she needs a sleep study done to see if she continues to have sleep apnea or if we can get rid of the oxygen completely, 2. she is going to have reconstructive surgery on the bump left behind by her first skull surgery, and 3. get rid of this cast and get new braces for her feet!

I am most concerned about getting her skull surgery scheduled as it will be the most invasive and least fun. We are working on getting this done the beginning of December. Prayers for scheduling and this mamas nerves would be appreciated (:

Lastly we had another scare on Monday... when I looked back in the car to see if Evie had fallen asleep in her carseat I noticed her color was a little off... seconds later her pupils raced back and forth and she was completely blue. I got her out, called 911 and they watched her in the ambulance for a while but by then she had started breathing again. Most likely she either had a seizure and stopped breathing... or stopped breathing then had a seizure. We took her home and let her rest on home oxygen. We have taken her to the Emergency Room for breathing spells and seizures like this before but besides taking blood theres not much they can do. We spoke to her neurologists office when we got home and they agreed that we should watch her and see how she did. She has been fine ever since so hopefully it was just a fluke.

Love you guys, thanks for praying for us as we schedule and have surgeries and scares! We are truly blessed to have people that care so much about Eve and our family.


  1. Your family is always in prayers, so happy she is okay.

  2. I can't imagine the site of my little girl not breathing. You're a great mom to have such a level head about it. We're praying for her and hope things get worked out!!


  3. I just came across your blog last week and have been reading bits and pieces of it ever since. :)
    Glad to hear that your little girl started breathing again on her on. I know how scary that can be with seizures. I'll be keeping your family in my prayers!

  4. I'll say a special prayer tonight for you and your family. God bless your strength!

  5. Hi Lindsey and family! I just wanted to tell you that I read your story in September's Spirit magazine. It touched me, 'tho I am not a parent, and this is one of the first times I "get" how hard it must be to try to make good decisions and pull together as a family. Congratulations on your beautiful children. I am featuring your blog in a master's of education project I'm doing for Colorado State University on why people use blogs. I just thought the photo of Lindsey by the computer late at night told so much of the story. Thank you for your inspiration. I hope to share your discovery with others who need to find their community, for the good of all.

  6. Linds! I will be praying for house and babes and you of coarse! I love you so much and you never cease to amaze me! xoxo
