Tuesday AM

We made it home yesterday sometime between 5 and 6pm.  We don’t have any test results yet and probably won’t for more than a week.  It is going to be hard not having them but we are trying to not even think about that right now.  

Rebekah finally got to “eat” something when we got home.  Poor girl had been over 14 hours without food.  She was grumbling but over all was very well behaved after a long long day.  This was one of those days where NOT having to cook was a blessing.  Because we didn’t think ahead enough to have meal taken out of the freezer we stopped and got a Take-N-Bake pizza – a rare treat that we enjoyed a lot. The girls went to bed shortly after getting home and mommy and daddy curled up on the couch and did the same.

Bed update – on the way home from the hospital we stopped by a store managed by one of Scott’s clients.  It was tough with tired girls but we got a good educating on beds and finally picked one out.  Funds were obviously a very big issue but quality is key to Don –the manger.  With our situation in hand Don made sure that we got the best bed for us without regard to the price.  We paid what we could and Don and Sleep Country – a Sealy owned store took care of the rest.  Because of the logistics, how far out we live, etc. we won’t have it until this weekend so we get a week full of romantic nights in front of the fireplace!  PLEASE – if you need a mattress in the Portland area go by Sleep Country at the north end of Beaverton Mall and ask for Don.  Even if you don’t need a mattress stop by and thank him for his wonderful help!

The end of last week and now beginning of this week have been another round of generosity from a lot of people and, yet again, we are SO grateful.  THANK YOU ALL!

We always seem to hear about the bad people in the world but I am convinced that there are more good folks, like Don, who are more than willing to help when given a chance. Hope your bed gets there soon and you get some good rest! I will be praying for wonderful test results soon!

What a wonderful thing sleep country did!! They do stuff like that here too. Donating to foster families. Great people!!!
I won't be online around the time you get the results. I won't be back until Valentines Day due to internet issues. Please know that I am praying for Rebekah and will check as soon as I can on what is going on....

This week will probably be long because you'll be waiting for the results - I know what that's like - so I'll say "extra" prayers to help you along. I am so glad to hear about the new bed - you'll be amazed with a new mattress in terms of getting a good night's sleep. Take care!

I hope that the results are good. I want Rebekah to get so much better someday. She is a strong & beautiful little girl.

Was relieved to hear about the bed. I bet it's big enough for you and sister to climb in the middle and sleep between mommy and daddy Rebekah! God bless Don for helping you out.

Blessings and Prayers,

God's looking out for you - even in the "little" things - like a comfortable bed. Awesome.

We have been bed shopping for Olivia the past two days and as we've shopped - I've been saying little prayers that the Lord would work out your bed situation.

God is good. All the time!

Enjoy the "snuggle" time in front of the fire,
Blessings,
Deb
