A great friend brought over that pumpkin wrapped in bandages for Jameson and we loved it!!!! The boys are all going as mummies for Halloween (just for Jameson). I never thought seeing my child wrapped in bandages could be so cute but boy is he CUTE!!!
We went to the doctor and Jameson has gained 1lb and 1 1/2 oz in one month. We were happy. Dr. Coffman came in to see Jameson and he was sooooo surprised at how good he looked. Thanks for ALL of your prayers; God is doing great and mighty things because of you praying for Jameson. The doctor did hear the same heart murmur. I will be making the appt. this week to go in for the Eco-cardiogram. Please pray that we will have no complications and the murmur is something that we will grow out of. I have been given some great advice about going in for the Eco-cardiogram....be the first appt. of the day, and just unbandage as little of an area as possible. WOW!!! I get a little nervous about all of this. Please pray for me=)
A friend came by the other day that had a baby just 10 days before us, He was very cute with amazingly beautiful skin!!! I had no idea how seeing that baby really affected me. I was greatly saddened by what they had......a perfectly normal baby with perfectly normal skin. I cried ALOT. I was so sad that we were going through all of this and really did not handle my emotion well at all. I felt such guilt. I never want to look at what God has given someone else and think that I got the shaft. I felt sorry for myself for all day. I know that there will be good days and bad......but that was one of the worst. I have learned a great lesson though.....I don't have a baby with normal skin; I have a baby with perfect skin. God did not give me the shaft; He gave me everything that He wanted us to have. God wanted us to have an EB baby. We were given so much more than normal. Every time God reminds me of what He has given me, I am so humbled. I want so much to look at everything that has happened in the last 14 weeks and only see how the hand of God has moved and work in my life and pray that the lessons He is teaching me I am learning. If God doesn't give me anything else, I know that today He has given me ALL that I could ever have imagined...a wonderful Savior and a beautiful family.
Thanks for praying for baby Jameson. One day, we will all be praising God for his complete healing!!!!
