Lately, it's been hard to know what to say,
As we continue down this way.
It's sure been a tough and hard time,
As we continue to care for Mr. Sometimes.

We've had plenty of meetings,
Some about his continual issue with feeding.
He's still not gaining weight,
Which we may never see at this rate.

His breathing has been a mess,
It sure adds plenty of stress.
Last week to emerge we went,
Yet nothing was found in the event.

We asked ourselves how can that be?
He was sick, all in emerge did agree.
A high fever, weakened, low sats and laboured breathing.
We left with a mixed emotion feeling.

Lately, Jacob's undergone lots of medication changes,
Is it just another one of his stages?
Nothings stays the same for long,
As the battle continues for what is wrong.

Is his condition worsening?
It sure causes our heart much hurting!
We never know what to expect,
Or what will next take effect.

We're blessed with a great night nursing team,
Love and compassion is their over-arching theme.
Each one exceeds our expectations,
As they lovingly adapt to all Jacob's complications.

Anxious fear can grip us as we near our due date.
What will then be on our slate?
A fifth child in tow,
Thankfully the baby is healthy for what we do know.

In the recent past, we've had tears,
Tears of joy or a heart wrenching fear.
God says He'll carry us through,
To lean on Him is all we can do.

We continue to covet your prayers,
And all your words you share.
Your encouragement has been so uplifting,
We find it thoroughly comforting.
