Fall BREAK??

October 17, 2007

so just when you think you’re going to get a vacation, things happen. this weekend we took the boys on a fall BREAK journey. Lane went to the Nanny and Pop’s and D and E went to Dollywood and the glorious redneckopolis known as Pigeon Forge. we stayed in a humongous 7 bedroom cabin there with some friends. we enjoyed the rides @ Dollywood, the go-carts @ The Track, and then we got the call.

we got the call from Nanny that they thought Lane had stopped breathing. they had to call 911. the first reaction was to assess the situation, then ask the hard question, “are you saying he’s dead?”, and then head out. we left D and E in capable hands with our friends, then booked it to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.

we got there right after Pop and Lane did, and all is well. he probably had a small seizure that caused his breathing to be super shallow. as always, better safe than sorry. plus, Lane probably wanted to go see some of his friends he hasn’t been around in 10 years…

then tuesday night, D took a helmet to the arm during football practice and proceeded to have a gash that was deep enough for stitches. we jetted off to the Cool Springs Walk-In Clinic for a visit with Dr. Brad. he cleaned the cut…which almost made me puke…and then used super-super-glue to close it. amazing! D was a little worked up over the thought of getting sewed up, but he made it though fine. the only problem is that he doesn’t have a super cool stitch in to get some female sympathy, but he’ll be fine!

    hi…well, i just came from the youtube video about lane. i have to tell you: i was blown away. i felt immediately connected to your story. and what you said about abraham being asked to sacrifice isaac resonated in a way i can’t explain. thank you for what you are doing. it ministers to me in such a deep, rich way as i walk through the grief and struggle of why God asked me to let go of my precious girl just three weeks ago. i am so thankful you are using your story. blessings-boothe blanton farley
