a little sympathy

Saturday, August 7, 2010

Today, we decided that we wanted to show love to our little Jadie, by ALL sticking to a liquid diet and limiting our activity (no jumping on the neighbor's trampoline, no bike-riding, etc.).  It was GREAT, because it helped us to feel a little more sympathy for Jadon, who is on a liquid diet for 2 weeks and who has limited activity for 5 weeks.

One thing that made it super-fun to be on the liquid diet was the popsicle maker that Aunt Joyce sent to Jadon.  Wow!  I've never seen anything like it and certainly have never had such a fancy kitchen-gadget.  We had a great time making watermelon popsicles, and an even greater time eating them!

Aunt Joyce also sent Jadon two cards in the mail!  What a special encouragement she has been to Jadon!  In fact, there have been MANY people who have done such special things to make Jadon's surgery and recovery SO MUCH easier.  Thank you to Aunt Joyce, Aunt Cindy and Uncle Mark, Oma, Opa, Grammy, Grandma and Grandpa, the Penrods, the Bursheks, the Schroeders, the Croslands, Aunt Mercy and Uncle Ken, the Days, the Perkins', the Vigils, Jadon's ZhangZhou group, many of you blog-readers, and others.  All of these people have either called, sent emails, watched our children or given gifts to our precious little guy.  We love you all and are so grateful for your kindness to our family!

That is so sweet of the entire family to go liquid today!! I've seen that popsicle maker (actually, I think the girls say it somewhere and were begging me to get it!) and wondered if it really worked! Very cool!!

That is a great idea!! Does this mean we have to support each other with liquid diets when we have our colonoscopies?

I had to laugh with all the pics of watching the popsicle maker!! It's like watching water boil!!

Jadon's popsicle looks great!!

I've just been catching up. I'm happy Jadon did so well! What a wonderful idea to share some sympathy.

Thanks for sharing--we have two of these coming.
