Let me just tell you all what a awesome kid I have. He is truly amazing. He excelled in all subjects and improved in every area of his report card. Logan we are sooooooooo proud of the little man you are becoming. We are proud of your drive to want to good in school, and all that you do. You are truly a special spirit, and I am so glad you chose this family. You are definitely a intricate and vital part of our family. You are so helpful and a great son, and big brother, and apparently a great student. Way to go!!! We love you!!!
I love this message. It is so true the Lord knows our trials. My favorite line is "The 3rd we can do is inderstand the principle of compensation. The Lord compensates the faithful for every loss. That which is taken away from those that love the Lord will be added unto them in His own way. Although it may not come in the time we desire the faithful will know that every tear today will eventually be returned a hundred fold with tears of rejoicing and gratitude."
I love that line!!! The Lord knows our trials. He counts every tear. He knows our hearts and knows what we can handle. He also knows the joy that our trials can bring us if we endure.

"are you comfortable going to Seattle for a 2nd opinion?" I said
"we are going to Childrens, Huh?" he said
"how did you know?" i said
"trust me I know all about Childrens"
So anyways I am not sure what any of this means yet. I probably won't know until after the Childrens Appt. I do know that he does not have Eustachian Tube disfunction. He said that the Eustachian Tube is broken. Like I said not sure what that means yet, but I will let you know. This posts is mainly for grandmas. I am considering changing the caringbridge blog to the chronically hospital visiting sabins. HEHEHE

I have realized over the last year or so that we should always live like that song by Diamond Rio "one more day". There are so many things that are less important in our lives. Things we have gotten rid of. It is different for every family, but for us it has been TV. We need to be building memories. Even if are children are well. In the song it says "Last night I had a crazy dream, a wish was granted just for me, I could wish for anything, I didn't wish for money or a mansion with a pool, I simply wished for one more day with you. One more day, one more time, one more suset baby I'd be satisfied, but then again I know what it would do, leave me wishing still for one more day with you. First thing I would do is pray for time to crawl, I'd unplug the telephone, turn the TV off, I'd hold you every second say a million I love yous, that's what i'd do with one more day with you." The song has made me realize what we have with gospel. We do have One More Day. We don't need to wish for one more day. We are a family forever. We need to live our covenants so we can have one more day with our families. It is but a short time apart. Now I am not saying that we are perfect. Sometimes we forget. Sometimes we have hard days or hard months. There are times when we feel sorry for ourselves, but then we remember the Plan of Happiness that our Heavenly Father has for us all and we know that if anything does happen to Brody that he will ALWAYS be our son, because of our Heavenly Fathers plan, and the covenants we have made (and strive to keep) in the temple.
We are so grateful for our eternal family, and the peace that it brings to us in our "down" times. We are grateful for each day we have with EACH member of our family. We know it is precious, and is a gift from our Heavenly Father. We know He has a plan for our family, and we are willing to follow the Lord's will. Whatever it may be. The Lord knows our hearts and knows what we want for our son, but HE is OUR Father, just like we know what is best for our children, HE knows what is best for our family, and ultimately for Brody.
Like I said earlier, I know this post sounds dramatic, and I didn't post it for attention. I posted it so people would know how we feel, how we are doing, and who they can talk to. To those of you who have listened to me rant and rave, or talk about Dr. appts. Thank you. Thanks for being my shoulder, not batting an eye if I cry and not making it awkward. We thank all of you for the prayers on our behalf. We love you all.

"mom what is on your big bellies?"
I say pointing to my belly
"you mean my belly, a blanket."
"no. your big bellies!"
I am sure you can figure out what he was talking about. So I say
"it is a blankie, (then pointing to my belly I say) is this my little belly?"
"No it is your other big belly."
Nice I think it's time for bed, or time out, or something. HAHA Although that was kind of entrapment. Anyways If you are wondering why I post all the little funny things they say it is because this is my journal. I just print it out at the end of each month and stick it in a binder. That way when they have kids I can say look here is what you said to me. What comes around goes around. HEHEHE
