Brock Rocks

update, bullet-style

bullet points b/c it’s one of those days

– we’re all sick.  half of us have a cold and 3/4 of us have a stomach bug (brock included)

– ended up taking B back to clinic on tuesday…did a flu test, strep test, blood culture, stool culture, and urinalysis.  everything looks fine so far.  just a virus.

– you all are giving me entirely too much credit for the costumes.  i have an amazing friend that works for (runs??) a children’s theater and she gave me the MP costume, all the way down to the umbrella.  jay did his own costume and the chimney sweep.  isn’t he talented??  my mother in law found the dress and hat for jaycie and she sewed that little coat for her!  isn’t she talented??  i hope my kids get their creative genes.  the only costume i had anything to do with was brock’s.  and you know what i did?  bought a suit from target.  because that’s how i roll.

– several of you have asked, and no, brock did not eat any birthday cake.  he didn’t open presents either.  he did take a few bites of pizza, though!  (he also immediately spit them out, but hey, at least he took a bite)

– i’m sure there’s more to tell you but i can’t think of it.

– if, miraculously, all goes as planned, we won’t have to go back to the clinic for 2 weeks!  pray for good health!


  1. Bullets, bullet holes, and everything that goes with it are just great. So glad to hear from you. Got to say your team of costumers is terrific. I thought you had just stepped out of the film. Prayers are always with you all. Praying for healing and praying that Brock will make the two week mark with no sweat. Color me impressed with how you roll.

  4. As always, praying for good health for my precious grand nephew!
    Hoping and praying you all are well again. I so wished I could have tuned into the radio chat w/you and Jay. I truly believe you are blessed my our great Lord and Saviour w/the public speaking you have been asked to do. I know its difficult to see the silver lining in the clouds, but I’m sure God is leading the way.
    Love Aunt Connie
