One of the reasons that the past couple of days has been so tough is because David and I hardly get a chance to talk or text because Grace is so incredibly needy right now (who can blame her). Our poor little girl hardly sleeps more than 15 minutes at a time and when she's awake she needs David's full attention (he got 3 hours of sleep last night and couldn't even get away for meals today) making it hard for us to have any meaningful conversation. Therefore, the updates that I get from David are usually VERY brief and infrequent (in comparison to my preference that is :-). While the circumstances are not ideal, I can praise The Lord that some of the updates that I have received for today have been that "Grace is doing great," "she almost finished a 4 oz bottle without spitting up... yet" and "she has an echo scheduled for Monday, if that looks good, she may be discharged on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week." All of those updates are certainly praise worthy, so I humbly ask that you would please join us in praising the Lord for Grace's progress and please pray for her continued healing with no more bumps in the road. Please also pray for David and I to endure this difficult time (days) well, we feel like we are just trying to make it through each day until we can all be together again. The verse that I'm clinging to right now is Lamentations 3:23 "Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning."
Thank you for being our "village"! We SO appreciate all of your prayers, encouragement and support!
