Easter was TERRIFIC. Hudson and I both had pink eye and didn't even get to attend church; not to mention it rained, so we had to do the Easter Egg Hunt in the house. Oh well, you do what you can with what you have, right? Hudson thought the eggs were balls as he threw every single egg that he picked up. That was entertaining. My mom was in town that weekend and picked Hudson up on Friday and kept him overnight and they had a great time dying easter eggs. Derek and I sat on the porch with him while we were waiting on my mom, and his face was priceless when he saw Grandy pull in the drive way. He was so excited to see her. She managed to take him for a ride in our wheel barrel before they hit the road. Yes, we have a wagon and a stroller, but they chose the wheel barrel for some reason. I got some cute pictures of Derek and Hud waiting on the porch. It is a tradition in our family that every child dies a dozen of their own eggs, so she just couldn't let Easter go by without getting that in. Thanks, mom. He had such a great time with his Grandy and Grandad.
Derek still continues to struggle with his health. He has good days and bad. Please continue to pray that his medicine transition we are about to undergo is a smooth process and a safe one. Please continue to pray for him. A cure for diabetes would certainly be a miracle that I believe God will deliver, but we must wait for His timing and submit to His will; which, I am not going to lie, has been very difficult for me when it has come to Derek's health. This two-plus-year struggle has taught us a lot and continues to grow us in our faith. My biggest prayer is that Derek can get his medicine straightened out and be himself again...for good. Thanks for your prayers and continued thoughts and support.
