New Jobs and Doctor's Appointment

The big news these days (other than the obvious) is Derek getting a new job.  God's timing is perfect and there is denying it!  We've been praying for months that Derek would be able to find a job before Addyson was born.  He was working at the same company as his Dad in a 100% commission position for the past month or two.  Of course, it takes time to get clients and even though Derek was going on meetings almost every day with potential clients it was still really nerve racking.  Well, when we were still in the hospital Derek got a call asking him to come in for an interview for another company... They wanted him to come in that day, but he postponed it for Monday (seeing as we were still in the hospital).  He went to the interview on Monday and it went great, and by 2:00 o'clock on Monday afternoon Derek got a call with an offer.  This is a salaried position vs. commission which is what I felt like we needed at this point in time.  They are also giving him an auto allowance on top of his salary and paying for his cell phone.  All I could do was cry, because of the timing of how everything has worked out this month and this past year for that matter.  The Lord is so incredible!

Another update is from Addyson's doctors appointment today, some good news and some not so good news.  The good news is that she gained back 4.5 oz from last Monday, so she's almost back to her birth weight.  She weighs 6.9 oz.  Now the not so good news... She might have an infection that is caused from her kidney.  The doctor ran a test on her urine and something showed up that may be an early indication of an infection.  He went ahead and sent the urine off to have more tests ran, and that will tell us more.  The doctor also went ahead and put Addyson on an antibiotic just in case.  It's upsetting to have my 12 day old newborn already on an antibiotic, but this is all things that they prepared us for when we found out about her kidney.  We will also have an ultrasound soon.  I will be sure to post an update.

Please continue to keep her in your prayers....
