Report on Jeffrey

Posted by joelbyer on November 30, 2006

We went to see the pediatric neurologist today.
Jeffrey was diagnosed as having speech apraxia. (It is a oral motor coordination disorder.) Thankfully, autism was ruled out. This basically means that he will continue to need speech therapy and social interaction with other kids to help bring him through. All of the workers there have been very pleased by his progress, so we were thankful for that as well. So, continue to keep him in your prayers!

Answer to Prayer!

Posted by joelbyer on November 29, 2006

Jeffrey is scheduled to meet with a pediatric neurologist tomorrow morning at 10:45. Please pray that they will be able to diagnose his problem – if there is one. We are thankful it all worked out this way. The next appointment would have been in February. Jeffrey was on the cancellation list for tomorrow, so it didn’t look like it was going to work out. Thank the Lord!

Links updated

Posted by joelbyer on November 27, 2006

On the right hand side of the screen that you are looking at right now (Yeah, I can tell you’re doing it. Eerie, isn’t it?), I have added a few new links. My ultimate goal is to become the official blog of the Conservative Holiness Movement – a place where people can be bored to tears with trivial information and a whole host of so many links that people don’t even bother clicking on them anymore.

My kids love to play bees. I despise this game. It slowly drives me insane. However, being the all-around great father that I am, I indulge them. (A pat on the back or word of commendation would be appreciated, here.)

Family Christmas

Posted by joelbyer on November 25, 2006


Yes, it’s that time of year again. Over American Thanksgiving, my wife’s family usually comes up. With them comes my mother-in-law. Now note…I am NOT implying what you think I am! I was just simply noting the fact that my wife’s family includes my mother-in-law. This year we celebrated Christmas early because we’ll be in OH for the actual Christmas. Picture above from left to right: Christmas Tree, father-in-law, Winnie the Pooh, Jeffrey, Kari, Janessa, unnamed bear, unnamed doll baby, Stevie, yellow dump truck.
Anyway, they left this morning to go back to PA. My mother-in-law left too! Please don’t read anything into that exclamation mark, either.

Black Friday

Posted by joelbyer on November 25, 2006

For the first time ever, I participated in Black Friday shopping in the States. I left my house around 3:30AM (yes, you read right), and stood in line at Staples for well over an hour. (Yes, I’m mostly sane.) But, it was worth it!
Among my various items:
1) A laser printer for 39.99 after rebates
2) 1 gig flash drive for about 8, after rebates.
3) A 200 gig hard drive for 20 bucks, again after rebates.
If you think I’m insane, you should have heard about this one person that supposedly started waiting out front of Best Buy at around 11AM – THE DAY BEFORE! See, when I compare my mental stability with extreme examples, it always makes me feel better :-).

Blogger goes lazy, public demands he snap out of it

Posted by joelbyer on November 25, 2006

Yes, here at BBB, we have been negligently neglecting our beloved blog in a most…um…negligent matter. However, due to my sister Esther or some pseudonym, pressure has been put on me to post another post.
So this is my post.

News…

Posted by joelbyer on November 21, 2006

1) House of Commons to revisit gay marriage issue
Certainliy, this seems like a long shot in the dark that Canada would actually reverse its decision to allow same-sex marriage. However, we dare not stop praying and letting our voice be heard!

2) And in local news… 🙂
Jeffrey is not feeling well today. Pray for him. He’s been sleeping through much of today. Believe me, for a 4-year old, this is not the norm!
