“I praise You because You made me in an amazing and wonderful way.
What You have done is wonderful. I know this very well.
You saw my bones being formed as I took shape in my mother’s body. As I was put together, you saw my body as it was being formed.
All the days planned for me were written in Your book before I was one day old”. -psalm 139
This passage brings tears to my eyes. And is such a comfort to me…knowing that our Father really IS in control here!
Yesterday was rather traumatic with an MRV. It is similar to an MRI and Kierra had to be sedated for it. Since her airways aren’t the greatest, they also put a breathing tube in for her. They asked me if I would like to leave the room while it was done. And at that moment I knew I wanted to stay. I would rather watch them do it and face my fear then to imagine it. My imagination can be vividly out of control when I let it 🙂 It went well and she was asleep when they inserted it, so that made me feel better!
Linda and Aleisha came to sit with me while we waited for her to get out. It was so kind of them and made the time go much faster. They brought me a wonderful strawberry rhubarb smoothie!
Thankfully getting her off the tune wasn’t a problem. She was fairly uncomfortable for awhile, until they gave her some meds, Then she relaxed and had a fairly good night.
The MRV was a better look at her veins to check for blood clots which may be causing her high blood pressure. It is controlled right now, with an IV drip of medication, but she obviously needs to be weaned off of that before she can leave ICU.
She was still sleepy last night, so Steve and I both slept over at the Ronald McDonald house on a real bed. Her nurse was great and parked outside her door, so we felt comfortable leaving for a few hours. I feel so refreshed!
So if you would be kind enough t0 breath a prayer today…Pray for healing for our daughter…and knowledge for the Doctors to know what to do and patience and wisdom for us in making decisions and juggling our lives 🙂
By the way, Amy Kauffman gave me the BEST massage you can imagine last night! It is totally worth going to her ‘office’!!! I could even SEE better afterward 🙂
It’s so wonderful to know that our Creator never gets tired or weary….and His knowledge is unsearchable.
Praying you could feel His presence in any trying situation in your life right now!
