Another update on Stellan, plus other things.

Baby Stellan is improving! They're letting him eat, slowly but surely....they started him on some pedialyte and moved him back up to breast milk (expressed, of course). Oxygen stats are staying up... blood gases are going down.Praise God! He is good!

Don't you just hate to finish a book? I do...I mean, don't get me wrong, I LOVE reading books....it's just that I want to know what happens next in their lives... it's like I become part of the story, and I want to keep living it with them. But their story ends on the last page (unless it's a sequel book, I suppose). I FINALLY, finally, after years of owning the book and pledging that I would read it (then putting it back on the shelf because of my busy schedule and lack of time-to-read, and choosing instead books with less....volume?)....FINALLY I read I Know This Much is True by Wally Lamb. It took me a long time, which I knew it would... heck, it's like 891 pages, and I have a toddler who does NOT sleep anymore. But this 2 week "Winter vacation" gave me some time. What a book, eh? Interesting.... sad.... thought-provoking.... I really, really loved it. A good read, if you haven't read it already. I'm soooo looking forward to reading his other work. The only thing I'm not incredibly fond of is his overuse of the "gd" curse. But you'd be surprised how awesome I am at substituting that word with a bajillion other words, on the spot, without even having to think about it. :)

Anyway, that's all I had to say. Ernie the Goldfish had a proper burial service in the toilet yesterday. He will be missed by..... the noisy fishtank that still sits with water but no fish now. Kinda sad, huh?
