Day 2 update

Well today was another day in the right direction. We started the morning with Lil Sis being able to start drinking a bottle of soy milk (her favorite!). She then had her femoral IV taken out along with her catheter. By lunch she was offered crackers and Cheerios but instead opted for juice, jello, and apple sauce. After lunch she had another IV removed (there are still several more) and the O2 nasal cannula came to an end. Her O2 sats look good and she was happy to ditch that pesky thing. During that time we were blessed to have a friend from church arrive who was allowed to come in the room. The visit was great and she even got Lil Sis to laugh hysterically for the first time post surgery. Before she left she led a beautiful prayer as we prayed over Lil Sis while she drifted off for a nap. After nap she managed to pee all over her bed while changing her diaper which prompted a bath and the first real snuggle time with Momma. I think she did it on purpose:) Since then she has continued with period of sleep and mostly joyful awakeness. As the nurses change shifts and I head to snag some dinner for us at the Ronald McDonald House she continues to make steady improvement. We could not be more blessed with our surroundings and the friends and family who are supporting us.

Dad and the M Party of 5

Rejoice in The Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7
