In the middle of my little mess...

"When he gets that tube replaced, he'll feel like a new man!" -Direct quite from his older sister, Meredith who is 8.:)

Mr. Tough-as-Nails is having another procedure today. His GJ has worked its way out of his intestines and into his stomach. No one knows when this happened but we found out via x-ray on Friday. Since Friday he has gotten progressively worse. He is retching and vomiting a little more each day and is experiencing pain. Yesterday morning and afternoon he was pretty uncomfortable. He pointed at his tube and said "ow" a few times. It is important that we get this tube into the right organ for obvious reasons. So, today at three he will head to the IR at Pittsburgh Children's Hospital and will come out a "new man" . Little man has been through a lot in the last 19 months and it seems things aren't slowing down. The pediatrician is adding another specialist for his feet and it seems little man takes one step froward and two steps back. Little inconveniences pop up quite frequently and he handles them with grace. Sometimes "in the middle of my little mess I forget how big I'm blessed" but am quickly reminded by his glowing smile!




I lost my keys in the great unknown
And call me please 'Cuz I can't find my phone

This is the stuff that drives me crazy
This is the stuff that's getting to me lately
In the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I'm blessed
This is the stuff that gets under my skin
But I gotta trust You know exactly what You're doing
It might not be what I would choose
But this is the stuff You use

45 in a 35
Sirens and fines while I'm running behind
Whoa

This is the stuff that drives me crazy
This is the stuff that's getting to me lately
In the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I'm blessed
This is the stuff that gets under my skin
But I gotta trust You know exactly what You're doing
It might not be what I would choose
But this is the stuff You use

So break me of impatience
Conquer my frustrations
I've got a new appreciation
It's not the end of the world

Oh Oh Oh

This is the stuff that drives me crazy
This is the stuff
Someone save me
In the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I'm blessed
This is the stuff that gets under my skin
And I've gotta trust You know exactly what You're doing
It might not be what I would choose
But this is the stuff You use

Oh Oh Oh Oh
This is the stuff You use

  1. I'm praying, Liz! This song often helps me to keep the challenges life throws at us in perspective too!

    May the joy of the Lord be your strength!
