Poor Editor

As some of you already know, yesterday was a horrible day for our Editor Extraordinaire. She woke up with an awful pain in her leg and after seeing that it had turned purple and swollen, she spent the rest of the day in the ER. They discovered a huge clot in her leg (deep vein thrombosis, for all you medical people out there). The concern is that if the clot breaks off, it could get into her lungs and that would be bad, bad, bad. She's about 7-8 weeks pregnant and will need injections of a blood thinner twice a day for the next nine months. Thankfully, the injections won't hurt the baby. She's on bedrest for the next two weeks. We know that God is in control of all things and are trusting in Him, but this is still super scary for all of us. If you could all pray, it would be much appreciated.

I'm praying for your mom! And I'm really happy you all are keeping a blog!

Jordan, please let your family (particularly your mom) that we are praying for you (and her).

BTW, who was the lucky sap who got to fold *all* those blankets and put them away (blanket fort)? That looks way too familiar.

I'm so glad to read your blog.

I'll be back!

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that Mom is doing a little bit better everyday. She can walk around some now without her whole leg turning purple.

Thank you SO much for your prayers and support.
