She had some issues with jaundice.
I'm not sure how high her bilirubin levels got...I just know that it was a stressful time for her parents.
She is better and on her way home!!

We haven't seen each other in awhile. She grew up in Ohio where my family is from and now she lives in Texas. Thank goodness for social media tools like facebook - we can actually keep in touch and I feel like I am more in tune with her now then when we just wrote the occasional letter to each other. I would love to see her in person though...
I haven't heard how her labor was - and the LandD nurse in me wants all of the details, but I do know that they are both fine and that her labor went pretty fast.
So without further ado - let me introduce you to Sawyer Paige.
She weighed in at 8 lbs, 15 oz and has cute chubby cheeks!

But then I fell in love with Hume Lake Christian camp. Fell in love with the beauty of the place. It is up in the Sequoia's. Fell in love with the view, the trees, the clean air. Fell in love with the mission of the camp and the difference they make in people's lives. Fell in love with the people who run the place. Fell in love with the food. Just plain ole' got Hume Lake in my system.
I have worked summer camps, singles camp, New Year's family camp, Thanksgiving family camp, winter camp. I have taken my niece and other friends so that they can get to know Hume Lake. The work is challenging for it is different than what I do everyday. I have to think and react in ways that I don't when I am in a hospital. It keeps me on my toes. It challenges my first aid skills and advanced cardiac skills. You just see so many different types of injuries and illnesses up there. And one day - I think it would be fun to actually deliver a baby while I am there. Now wouldn't that be exciting??
I haven't been able to go up much in the past year or two. It is a 6 hour drive for me and with working and going to school there just hasn't been the opportunity to go. But that is changing :) Buzz and I are going up September 16-18th for the next couples conference. We are excited for a bit of a break. Excited to see old friends. Maybe even learn a thing or two. If you are free you should join us. We stay in the infirmary but they have lovely rooms in the lodge and great food. You definitely don't walk away hungry! Take a sneak peak below and don't forget to turn down the volume on my play list so that the two don't compete for your listening attention!

I ran across this video tonight while I was doing some research. It explains a bit about the type of work that I do and rationale for this work. Yes, it is sometimes emotionally draining ~ but it is oh so important.
Be sure to silence my playlist down below so the two sounds don't compete with each other.
