Hey Team Ivy!!!

It's Mary's scribe again, having the privilege to update you all on the amazing progress Ivy Joy is making!!!!!!!  You have already heard that she is now camping out in 8East!!!!  Next step... HOME!!!

Please continue to pray that Ivy and Mary are busting out of Boston soon!!!!  I, specifically, am boldly asking for that to be by Friday!!  :)  Will you join me in that big ASK!!!?

Anyway, back to Mary's update that she asked me to share with you today!

"It is impossible for me to post in the hospital but I must absolutely share how QUICKLY prayers are being answered!    This morning I went in to a "lively" Ivy Joy!  The child I saw in 8East was night and day from yesterday when she was shut down!  Shut down she is NOT!!  Talking up a storm, interacting with me, visitors and her beloved Dora the Explorer!  She's snacking around the clock, fighting naps, expressing herself with mighty expressions when she likes or dislikes something!!!!  (She even launched a cup of popcorn at me this morning!!  :)  )  PROGRESS!!

Ivy's cardiologist saw her this morning and said he is overjoyed by the looks of Ivy's lungs today!!  There is no sound of a murmer when he listens to her, meaning NO leaking valves!!  (Do I, Diana, hear an Amen!!)  NO LEAKING VALVES!!  He said she looks REMARKABLE!!"

There is still work to be done for Ivy to get her ticket back home!!  But, thankfully God is in the details and He is providing and answering...    

So EXCITING!!  And so THANKFUL!! to be posting this for Mary today!!

Mary, I don't know if you know this Amy Grant song called "Saved By Love", but lately when I hear it, some of the lyrics remind me of you.

-----------

Laura loves her little family,
And she's the kind of woman who loves them with her life.
But sometimes in the evening,
When the world rests on her shoulders
With four walls closing in,
She'll close her eyes.

It's not like she misses being younger,
Though she never was in Vogue magazine or on TV;
Her husband loves her dearly,
And the morning shows her clearly,
Kisses her little baby girl.
Laura, she's the queen of the world.

Can't imagine ever leaving now,
Now that she's been saved by love,
Saved by love, saved by love.
Listen to her quiet heart singing loud.
Laura, she's been saved by love,
Saved by love, saved by love.

(Album: Lead Me On)

Ivy Joy need not say a word until she is 7 or 8 years old. If you can't determine what she is thinking or what she would be saying to you if she wanted to ... just by looking into those Eyes ... you must be in a Coma. She has the Most expressive eyes on this Planet. And when she is not happy ... you can certainly tell most of the words she would be telling everyone ... if she wanted to ... and where she learned some of those words while growing up in a Christian family ... is a Mystery. Thank heaven she is most comfortable with potungwah ( the People's Language ) right now. What a Thanksgiving gift to the whole world she is !
