Thursday was a great day for Nora at her cardiologist appointment. Nora would have a different story to tell if you were to ask her. She had little or no patience for sitting still. A 7 AM appointment was all very early for a baby girl. She was happy to get her milks and go back to sleep!
(This picture is very deceiving – portraying Nora as a tiny little bundle! In actuality she was spilling out of our arms, reducing our bicep function to wobbly tremors as we traded her back and forth!)
The results of her echocardiogram were reviewed by her doctors who met with us shortly afterward. To hear the news that Nora’s cardiac function is the best that they have ever seen was incredible! The most wonderful tears are the ones that flow over a radiating smile. Thank you, God!!!!!
While we were busy celebrating yesterday evening, I received a message from one of Nora’s biggest prayer warriors, Ethel. I have never had the pleasure of meeting Ethel in person and only know her through this blog. She has followed along with us on our journey since almost the very beginning and is always right there with a kind and encouraging comment. She is so dear to so many of us! Ethel and her husband Richard are in deep need of prayer right now. Richard received a cancer diagnosis two weeks ago, and their youngest son Carl passed away at home Thanksgiving night. I believe he was in his early forties. They still aren’t sure what happened. My heart is so broken for this sweet woman. I pray for God’s peace, comfort and healing to embrace them. For His grace and mercy to carry them through this.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
