Transferred!

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
(Psalm 118:24)

This is my sunshine ~

Yesterday Nora took the great big leap back to the main floor. As they wheeled her little bed down the hallway, a lump formed in my throat remembering that other morning that we were heading down these same halls in the opposite direction.

If I did not have my faith and my God to rely on in those horrifying moments, I certainly would have choked in the hellish fear of losing her. Although still terrifying, I held strong to the righteous right hand that was so graciously extended to me– strengthening me, upholding me, helping me put one foot in front of the other, to breathe.

The contrast of these two trips gown the hallway is nothing short of a miracle. How could a baby with a compromised heart, lungs and chromosomal makeup have possibly made it through a serious case of pneumonia + two other viruses???

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
(Ephesians 2:8, 9 ESV)

    “God has never failed me. Even in my greatest difficulties, heaviest trials, and deepest poverty and need, He has never failed me. Because I was enabled by God’s grace to trust Him, He has always come to my aid. I delight in speaking well of His name.”
    George Mueller

Miracles get sleepy from emphatically exhibiting the intense glory of God’s mighty power. Where better to rest than in the arms of her angel on earth?

Nora had a very good night last night. Both she and I got some much needed rest, but we were missing William (Daddy). He isn’t feeling well again and needed some “real-bed” rest. I’m praying he doesn’t have an ulcer with all of the crap he has on his plate… (as if just this weren’t enough!)

It is almost 1:00 PM right now and no signs of any fevers. Usually they would have crept up by now. I’ve seen her heart rate actually go down into the 120s and her oxygen saturations are improving even still! Her feeding tube was removed this morning and her PICC line will be removed this afternoon. There is a new blood pressure medicine that they are monitoring on her. But for that we should be given clearance to head home tomorrow or Sunday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. (Colossians 4:2 ESV)

Thank you again for flooding the circuits of heaven with your prayers and for your encouraging words. I wish I could thank each of you personally. You have absolutely no idea how much each of you mean to us!
