I’d planned to write a little more, but my eyelids feel like they have 10 lb. weights embedded in them. It’s been a physically and emotionally draining day.
Nora was admitted around 1:00 this afternoon and they started her on sildenefil shortly thereafter. We’ve been made to feel at home and as comfortable as possible. The purpose of our stay is to monitor her on the sildenefil to make sure her blood pressure stays at a healthy level. If she does okay we might be able to go home on Friday.
We have an amazing crew of nurses (and doctors) who are taking good care of Nora and of us. We weren’t there for but 15 minutes when we were blessed by a visit from Linda M., who was my angel on earth during our last stay here when Nora was about 12(?) days old. She even rocked Nora for William and I while we went to grab a quick bite to eat!! I heard that she and Nora had quite the conversation while Mommy and Daddy were away! Thank you, Linda, and Happy Anniversary!! 🙂
I was able to get out for a little bit to go spend time with the other kids this evening at Nana and Papa’s while William and Nora stayed behind and watched the Red’s game. I am so grateful for that time with the big kids. I miss them when they’re away! My Dad fixed me some kale and I watched half of a movie with them, and then was pestered to repeat things in “Nora’s voice”. Yes, she has a “voice” which you may have heard in the Milkies Cafe video. 😉
We appreciate your prayers more than I could ever express in words. I enjoyed a generous portion of peace today, but still incredibly exhausted!
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord , “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV)
(Thanks for reminding me of this verse today, Kim! I know and believe in God’s goodness, but I need the reminder, the daily moisturizer for my soul!)
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.
(Matthew 10:29 NIV)
