In Need of Change

Happy November 1st everyone. Can you believe that it's November already? WOW!
My post today is about change. Our family is seriously in need of good change. We are just like everyone else in the world...we work our butts off and it gets us nowhere. So these last weeks I have opened my mind and not only do we need change, we will try for it. There has been a house that we found....its a foreclosed house that is 4 BIG bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, on a corner lot in a nice neighborhood, about 25 min. away.... we ALL fell in love with it. It needs work, but so did our current house...and we made it home! It's so much bigger than this teenie tiny 11oo sq. ft. home we live in now (over 2500)! Paint, carpet and a little TLC...I think our family can make it home....

Eat in kitchen...everything need updating, but is very livable!!!

Nothing a little paint wont fix

I LOVE the family room!

It has a living room AND a family room!!!!
I love this entrance
We are already throwing out 15 years of accumulated stuff, giving to goodwill the decent stuff...our tree lawn is going to look ridiculous on garbage day. Its so nice to clean and declutter...I am feeling good about this! We just have to sell our house first before we can try for this one....Please say some prayers that things work out for us. If its not this house, it will be another...we just have to get our courage up and just move!!!! We are scared, but feel that this is the best for our family. With a lot of prayers and asking for Gods direction, things will work out!
So anyhow, back onto change....Kenny is wearing his hearing aids most of the time now! He still isn't walking on his own very much....a step or 3 here or there...but its a start. He is giving kisses now...totally melting my heart! I just love him so much.

I took him to his monthly visit to his doctor...he received the H1N1 vaccine...I am glad of that. It took a load off my mind. I was so worried that he would get such a bad case of the flu and die...its a feeling that I feel with all my kids....I think its my Post Traumatic Stress thing coming out. The other kids will be getting theirs on Dec. 1st.

The doctors are not happy with Kenny's weight gain. He is 22.6 lbs...he is on 32 ounces of Pediasure a day along with 10 teaspoons of duo-cal in everything...from his pureed food to his Pediasure...its a mess. His GI doc is sending him for a barium swallow in a few see what and why he isn't chewing and swallowing pieces of food. I sure hope they find out what the heck is going on. He is also going to see an ophthalmologist for his eyes, since they are crossing all the time now.

I am just feeling so sad for my little guy. I just want him to be the best he can. I know he's happy but I also know that he gets so frustrated because he cant communicate. So can you all please keep Kenny in your prayers that he can overcome all his disabilities.

And one last thing. My friend Jen has a son who was born around the same time Kenny was supposed to be born, anyhow....he has been diagnosed with MITO. He is having a real hard time right now. He has been in and out of the hospital with major issues.Here is their blog: The Moody Tales and also his Caringbridge page. Could you all please keep Zach in your prayers along with his parents and older brother, They are such good people. Thank you so much.
Like I said....we are all in need of change and MANY PRAYERS for many different things.

Congratulations! This should be no problem as long as you and your husband have a good credit score.
