I see my faithful husband took over blogging duties while I was "away." I'm on the mend! I've held down two small meals and think I've seen the worst of it. Some good news to report: There was no vomiting at all, by anyone, at anytime, today in the Williams family...Hallelujah! Brady had a good day today. I can't put into words the many ways in which he amazes me each day. As my mom put it, his whole life has been intruded upon. With the daily Broviac flushes, GCSF shot, and his every other day bathing ritual, he endures quite a bit. In between these upsetting times for him, his sweetness and wonderful personality melt my heart all day long! He has a lot of anxiety when we flush the Broviac. It is pretty obvious that he has an uncomfortable sensation as I'm injecting the saline and Hep/Vanco into the lines. It is a difficult thing for a mom to do. I also did the same thing for my mom when she had lymphoma. At the time I was pregnant with the triplets, and never in my life did I imagine I would be doing the same thing for one of them someday. Brady's appetite continues to be off. He is so sweet about it though. He just sits in his highchair and kind of plays with his food. We try anything/everything to just get some food in him. Tonight he really enjoyed a roll and his milk...fine with me!
On a more uplifting note: Have you checked out our blog tracker to the right? It is a map that tracks all of the "hits" we get on the blog. People from all over the world are reading about Brady!! I just keep asking myself, "How do these people know about us?" It is so amazing! If you click on the map it will show you a list of recent locations of the people viewing the site. Today I read that someone in Rome Italy read about Brady! I guess I need to step up my writing...talk about pressure!
I was really leery at first about starting this blog. Putting my thoughts out on the web for anyone to read was a little unsettling. But I can't tell you how wonderfully therapeutic it is to be able to share our struggles and blessings from day to day with all of you. We have been able to add so many prayer warriors to our team by using the internet! The comments of support that we read each day give us so much encouragement to keep going. I've been thinking a lot lately about awesome it will be to let Brady read this blog someday. I can't wait for that day...
