Venting moment

Ahh....It's Ellie's mom...taking a moment to vent. I feel that Brian and I have been pretty positive in this whole adventure with Reid....but I had a rough day today. I really should not even start to complain..because so many others have something so much rougher that us that they are dealing with. I need to remind myself of that. But, I am going to vent anyway. Reid is going to be seen Thursday morning bright at early (8:00) at Rainbow Babies hospital to visit with the craniofacial dentist that will be making the impression of his mouth and the prostetic piece for his mouth. When I spoke with them today....I just had one of those moments where I wish we didn't have to go through this. Let me rephrase this....so Reid wouldn't have to go through this. We are merely going for a consult on Thursday...and who knows when the procedure will be done. Reid's lip surgery has been scheduled for Jan.. 29 assumming all goes well with this other mouth piece. I guess Reid will have to go back weekly for fittings and adjustments on the palate piece until surgery is my understanding. I really don't know the details....we will know more on Thursday, I guess. I just feel defeated today. More appointments for Reid....more babysitters for Ellie...more decisions to be made. Just continue to keep us in prayer. I know you are...and we thank you. I just needed some time to vent outloud in words, I guess. My feelings are strong that we are blessed to have Reid. I just wish this process could be a bit simpler for him. I usually have really positive days...but today is just not one of them. Continue to think of us often....we so need that...and thank you for all you have done. I don't mean to be a drag here today....but I needed to just let off some steam. I don't really do this too often to Brian....he has enough on his plate with work not being real supportive to him. (another prayer topic, please!) You know, we are blessed to have the hospitals around so close that we do. I should be grateful...and I am. I just needed a little time to just let my mind speak. Thanks for listening.....more updates to follow soon.

Vent all you want, you deserve it. Your family has been through so much, I'm sure a roller coaster of emotions. You're a great mommy! It's so hard to see your little angel going through something so rough. We love you and are here for you. Do not feel bad because your having a bad day. You are an amazing mommy, wife, daughter(in law), sister and person and my FRIEND!! I think about you everyday and I cannot believe I haven't seen little Reid yet!! He's probably growing out of my gift...what size is he in? We still owe you dinner whenever your ready.

Big Hugs,

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!

Many blessing to you all.
