10 pm I had just put Timo down to bed. I was trying to decompress for the night. Peter had said he would be home by 12 midnight but I was so tired I didnt clean up the salmon and veggies teriyaki sauce that Timo and I made together and found myself falling asleep on … Continue reading

The Power of Remembering

There are no words.  There are no words to describe the immense power of remembering how good God was. I just finished watching the video Allison made for Timo’s first birthday, “The Life of Superhero T.”  It was all so incredible.  The same little boy that I see in front of me today had come … Continue reading

Thank you

A verse of the day… But Moses’ hands grew weary, so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it, while Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side. So his hands were steady until the going down of the … Continue reading

It’s 2:15 and we are going home!! After our poop party last night I kind of didn’t listen to the doctors because my instincts told me to listen to my son who, by then, was crying for food. He learned the word “bap” which means rice in korean and wouldn’t stop saying it, along with … Continue reading


Never have I ever loved poop more than today. After he vomited twice this morning, we went back to square one and had an IV placed again. Getting an IV placed is probably one of the things that Timo hates the most. There isn’t any pain med or numbing given for this and Timo is … Continue reading

We were doing so well

We went to bed last night feeling pretty good. One by one the doctors deemed Timo well enough to have the tubes taken out and right before bed he even popped! This means his bowels are working! BUT Like a thief in the night Timo woke up in sudden pain at 4am and vomited. We … Continue reading
