Grandma Eusey left yesterday. The Bun misses her already.

And we gained one hour of sleep this morning…or we should have gained an extra hour of sleep. Didn’t Ella get the memo?

Aside from sleep on this Sunday, Ella is healing from her cold. She is still snarfy with a snotty nose and coughing here and there. On another note, it does seem like she might have more fluid on board. Three indicators: higher heart rate, labored breathing and increased weight gain. She does not normally gain weight as quick as she did over the past week. To try and fight it off, we have increased her dose of diuretic to twice per day. The coming days will be telling.

Although I wish I had another week before starting work, I can’t believe that I start tomorrow. It’s going to be strange to not only have a job again, but one where I have to drive to an office. I was blessed to telecommute for nearly 7 years at my prior job. I’m hoping and praying for wisdom, guidance and strength as I embark on this new chapter of my life. It is going to take a lot out of me and require an adjustment to balance work & home life.

Along with this huge change in our personal lives, we have an election this week. I have encouraged every person that I know to vote. Here is what the Lord tells us: “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”– Romans 13:1

One thing is for sure: Times may be uncertain, but God will never change. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. It’s sure nice to know that our Savior’s love for us won’t change, and we can have full security in Him, regardless of what our eyes may see.

Thank you for all the prayer support. It means so much as we continue on this journey of life with Ella Renae.
