6 Weeks….

Seems like a lifetime and a flash all in one. There is a line from a John Denver song about Toledo, Ohio where he says “I spent a week there one day.” It seems to be a particularly relevant feeling right now.

Yesterday morning was a rough go for a while. Liam’s oxygen saturation levels dropped well below acceptable standards for a few hours as did his conscience state. In response, we changed a medicine that he was on, and it seems to have worked – as he is back near the ‘normal’ awake times and back to adequate breathing levels. It seems as though when you stack a few medicines together, they can have a synergistic effect, sometimes exploding the desired effects of the medicine into something more than originally anticipated.

We were also fortunate to have Ezra come up and visit twice yesterday….fortunate that the second time he was a lot more amicable than the first time. In the morning, he was a lot like a 2.5 year old that didn’t sleep well (go figure); but in the evening he was a lot more like a 2.5 year old that slept well. During his later visit he even sang four songs to Liam: ABCs, Twinkle Twinkle, the car song, and the hot tub song. The last two listed there aren’t something that you will find in the iTunes top-10; but if you pick a random melody and sing out of tune about how much you like cars or hot tubs, you are likely to get pretty close.

As the post this post is written, Liam fell asleep after a bath (which is a pretty good bet – the bath serves somewhere between a traumatic event and a soothing time for him). Sounds like a good plan to me….


  1. I can’t believe that it has been 6 weeks…Flash and Lifetime are probably a good way to describe it. On another note…when Sydney saw the picture of Ezra, she asked to see him sing ABC’s which we then watched at least 5 times. Stay strong guys…sending good thoughts your way.

  2. Once again wonderful photos! Thanks for sharing! Love to you all!

  5. Another post that captures Ezra’s innocence as well as Liam’s tenuous state of that precious thing we call life. I love looking at his eyes, his wee fingers, his nose. Your posts are, well, those that would make your high school English teachers proud! Thank you for your words that express so much so eloquently.

  6. Glad to catch up…Liam’s got the right idea. I think I am going to go take a bath and fall asleep. Love you!
