An update on Ruby-Gordan...
We are back in hospital. Friday afternoon she threw a 39 C Temp. Whilst on massive doses of antibiotics. I rang the hospital and they said, "Bring her in NOW". Great.
So there i am pushing Ruby (who looked so sick) in the pram, loaded like a pack horse, crutches tucked down each side of the pram and the volunteer in the hospital says...."Sorry love, the elevator is broken!" Ummm.... Do i look like i can walk up stairs???
He finally took me on a 20 minute stroll around the hospital to find a lift that was actually working.
Ruby was put on I.V antibiotics. We are still there. She had a CT scan today and they are considering operating tomorrow. We will be in at least another 2 nights. I am home for two hours now, getting clean clothes and stuff!
Poor Roo has a lure, thrush, a cough, sore ear and runny poos!
OK, from the mouth of babes...
Mum, can i push the buttons in the... (elevator)

Zozo, is doing well. She is starting to read, writing all the time, and is growing up so fast! She is such a helpful girl! Always asking what she can do for me!Liji is a delight! He is starting to talk now, and this has helped him get over screaming NO! constantly! He is so smoochy! Obsessed with Thomas, and likes to carry a snail around with him. He cries when i make him leave it outside!! Occasionally he says to me "It will bite me!" But gets over this pretty quick! Joel is still not walking, although he is now pulling himself up to standing. he can say Ohoh and woohoo! So cute!! Jarrod's new job is going awesome. He is loving it, and still improving every day!

Baby, Happy Birthday!
You have bought such a joy to my life, Joel. Through this past year of struggles, you have made life bearable. The bond we developed as i carried you, as we were told you had a severe disability, as we found out you didn't, as you suffered from colic and a hernia, as you had a severe reaction to your immunizations, as you have developed slower than "normal", as we lived through Daddy's sickness... You made me smile throughout it all.
I praise God for you daily, for the light you bring to our family.
It was such a shock to find out i was pregnant again with my 4 Th bubba in less than 4 years, but you were worth it! I would do it again in a heart beat.
I love you Joely-Poly-Rock'n'Rolly
BTW Today is also our 6Th anniversary! Jarrod has organised taking me away for the night, it is all a big surprise, he even organised sitters!!
AND Jarrod started a job this week!! It is going well, he has had a good week.

- I am weaning Joel.
- We just had our first weekend away, without ANY kids (and me not pregnant!!!) Since Joely was born! We went to Whanga and hung out with our friends Greg and Nik (who were also kid free!!!) We went out for every meal, had big sleep ins, and went shopping!
- My best friend, Karen, is moving away!! I am so sad about this. I don't know what i am going to do without our phone calls, and our weekly get togethers! (We say it is for the kids to play, but really its for us!!!)
- IT'S MY BIRTHDAY TOMORROW!!! YAY for me!!

*Jarrod Update* Javi was discharged on Friday, he is having his dressing changed by a district nurse each day. It is starting to improve. We are in the middle of changing his meds, it is a very hard time.

I have read alot of blogs lately, talking about the differences between their *blog life* and their *real life*. I have decided to share some of my life tonight for a number of reasons. I don't want my life to appear as "perfect", those of you who know me IRL know that it is far from so.
Eighteen months ago my husband suffered Burn out (we were later to find out that this is the P.C name for a nervous breakdown). He has been unable to work for this time, it has been a huge battle for us, emotionally, physically and spiritually. For the past 5 months he has been suffering from depression as well.
This week has been our hardest of all. Among other things we were given 6 weeks notice on our house last weekend. I am now having to pack and find somewhere for our family to move to. (this will be our 7Th house in 5 years!)
Then on Sunday Javi developed an infection on his knee. He went to the hospital where the Dr said it wasn't infected, just inflammed (Uh, NO!). He went to the Dr. yesterday and she said, yes it was infected and gave him antibiotics. This morning at 7 he got up to go toilet and passed out in my arms from the pain. I had to call an ambulance and he has been admitted with a major infection, they are worried about it getting in to his joint.
Life with a sick partner is not easy, add 4 little kids in to the mix and it is extremely hard at times. I love my husband today more than i ever have before. I know one day i will have my best friend back, i will see his eyes light up and hear his laughter, i know one day my kiddies will get their Daddy back, but until that time i will keep praying for him everyday.

Kate, Whip-lash is an online craft competition, each month there is a different *task*. This month you had to make a *cozy*. Check it out, it is lots of fun. Whipup. (or click on the Whiplash button!)

Dummy Cozy, hooks on to your key chain. Measures 8cm x 7cm when closed. Just big enough for a dummy (or a few coins, or whatever else is filling your pockets!)
The nappy cozy measures 16cm x 20cm. Just big enough for a folded disposable and a small pack of wipes!

I will be posting photos as i go!
