And back to the happenings here with tiny miss!
We are still here... in the hospital.. bleh
It's hard sometimes, finding joy in all circumstances. Listening to your adorable toddler tell you she wants to go home and wondering what she really thinks of you for keeping her here day in and day out.
But life is hard. And we have chosen to make the best of every circumstance we are handed. And even though it is hard, it is so much easier when you cherish every single moment, no matter where the moment is. And you all know the beautiful saying, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the number of moments that take our breath away....
Well this little darling takes my breath away!
My husband takes my breath away! Juggling all that he is all with love and grace and loving me from the depths of his soul in the midst of it all!
My big kids take my breath away! They have handled this year with such grace!
Honestly, you may think you should feel bad for us because we have had a really ROUGH year.... But we are so richly blessed, so in love, so loved, so humbled that God would trust us with such a difficult path and a hard hard year. Trust us.... just a couple of regular folks... with so much!
Every day, we have an opportunity to sulk in our sorrows.. But what sorrow? We are given a chance, a choice, a wonderful opportunity to let God shine through even troubling times. And shine He has!
We were blessed this morning with a nurse who introduced herself by saying that she prayed for the right assignment (child to care for) today and when she arrived it was Ivy. She shared that Ivy's blog is on her phone and that she goes to our church! Only God! How sweet He is! JOY
We have been so blessed by the sweet nurses caring for us these past 2 weeks. I was sharing last night with my nurse, after she asked why on earth we were here. I shared that 90% of our care comes from our nurses and we know they love Ivy to pieces. They are so excellent with her care and with their huge hearts for her special unfortunate circumstances. They know whats going on, they get it, and they care. JOY
We had a visitor with french frie's in hand this morning, we have 2 little visitors coming later, one with a special heart of her own and then tomorrow, Bryan and Lexi will join us for the rest of the weekend. So much joy to be found in the love we are surrounded with.
Don't get me wrong, I am absolutely going stir crazy in here.... (sorry I snapped at you on the phone babe), but I feel calm and peace in knowing how close we are to getting out. And I am well aware that things are just going to get even more crazy as we head towards the road to transplant using a different state than we live in...
But God will equip us once again!
Why we are still here~
Ivy's sodium has been dangerously low so we were held back a few more days in hopes of getting that in line. We have fluid restrictions and she is back on her smart water so we are hopeful it will go up soon. The girl with her fries and chips and all that salty food...... Go Figure :)
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!!
