day by day.


some days my biggest worry is if she will sleep long enough for me to make breakfast and wash the diapers. but other days i worry about what heart surgery will be like. if i'll be by her side when she wakes up. what the scar will be like. if we'll be able to stay in the room with her 24 hours a day. most days i can't let my mind go there. monday we have our monthly appointment with the cardiologist. this appointment will be a little different. she will have an echocardiogram. this will be the first time they have looked at her heart since she was in the NICU. we have been praying for a miracle. that her little heart would be healed and she wouldn't need surgery. we would so appreciate it if you could keep us in your prayers these next few days. pray for a miracle. pray for comfort. pray for wisdom. our sweet faba will have to be sedated for the echo and we're not looking forward to that. they want us to keep her awake and with an empty stomach before the appointment. seriously? ...this is a four month old we're dealing with. should be an interesting morning. no matter what happens we know that God is faithful and has us in His hands. we have experienced His love through friends & family in so many ways these past few months. thank you friends!

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.Psalm 121:1-2

  9. My sweet little Fabs! I want to be kissing her cheeks right now. Every time I hold her, I place my hand (well, fingers, she's so tiny!) over heart and pray for a miracle. And I am so thankful that He is in control, always.
