Oh Happiness!!

                                                               Oh, happiness
                                    There's grace enough for us
And the whole human race








                                          Friend or foe
                                        Stranger or kin
                                         All who come 
                                          Begin again

                                         Hard or frail
                                         Rich or poor
                                          All in need
                                   Need fear no more








Such a thing to give away







As you can see, Ivy is doing fantastic!! She is full of joy, happy all day and blessing the 5th floor with her contageous joyful spirit and precious smiles! We are awaiting an upper GI scheduled for Monday. We are concerned with her swallowing, she throws up a lot and it happens just seconds after attempting to swallow pudding thick foods. She is keeping cheerios down?? 








I just could NOT ask for more!!!!!

That sweet smile says it all! Such a wonderful blessing!
Have a great rest of the weekend! :) Praying the upper GI goes well and they can figure out what's going on! Who knows, she might just have an ultra sensitive gag reflex right now after all she's been through over the past few weeks, poor baby!!! Glad she is able to snack on some Cheerios though! Big hugs & kisses for Ivy!

Paige said...

So thrilled to see these pics!!! Praying for good news on GI and a great plan to get her eating:)

Maggie said...

It does my heart good to see the Little Warrior looking so happy and content. All the little bruises on that little body and yet she continues to smile and those eyes.
We love you Ivy Joy.

I am just in love with Miss Ivy! She is just too cute for words! I can't wait to see her at home. You need to give that little lady a BIG welcome home party!!! HUGE!!! Lots and lots of balloons and whatever else that pretty little gal wants. (((hugs)))

I just want to know where you're getting all those adorable socks Ivy is wearing in the hospital, particularly the ones with the fuzzy tops. Sooo cute! Sooo happy she's improving so nicely, too.

HI. We found your blog through another one we follow. We have 6 kids, 3 adopted, so adoption is very close to our hearts. Our little 4 year old makes sure we do not forget to pray for sweet Ivy EVERY night. She will not let me leave them room until I have. :) It is so sweet. We are amazed as we have watched God work in her little life as he heals her. She is just beautiful, and we continue praying for all of you.

Mary -
I just found your blog and can't stop reading! I had no idea what your sweet family has been going through. What a wonderful blessing Ivy is! And she belongs to such a great family. I'm so happy Ivy's health is improving and please know you and your family are in our prayers!
