God said "not yet"...

Per David, Grace did great last night (despite being awake for a couple hours) as it relates to her oxygen saturations on room air... until 5:30 this morning when she fell back to sleep (a deep sleep) and her oxygen went down to between 85-90% (they want it above 90% when she sleeps), so they put her on .25 liters of oxygen (the lowest setting) at 5:30 am.  We are assuming that this will mean another night in the hospital and a retrial of no oxygen when she's sleeping.  David and I sort of had our hearts set on them coming home today (just in time for Abby's last day of school tomorrow), but God answered our prayers with a "not yet," so we are trusting in His provision.  Will you please continue to pray for Grace's recovery and our hearts to be content in what ever the time line looks like and how ever different that time line looks compared to what we envision in our earthly minds?

There is a reason that my favorite verse is Proverbs 3:5-6...  "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight."  We never totally understand His holy and righteous ways, but we can trust that He is good!

Thank you sweet Village!  I don't know what we would do without you!
