Maggie is Coming Home

Earlier this week I felt down and discouraged. The doctor had to put a feeding tube into Maggie as she was having trouble getting all of her caloric intake. She was also having drops in her heart rate. Immediately I sent out requests for prayer. There have been prayers offered all over the U.S from East to West. Wow! I am amazed. The day after I sent out prayer requests, I began to receive emails from so many to let us know that they were praying. At the end of the day, there was already vast improvement in Maggie's condition. She started getting hungrier and could not seem to get enough to eat. And thankfully there have been no more drops in her heart rate.

Today is Friday and we are bringing her home late this afternoon. She had to pass a car seat test. This is where the nurses put a preemie baby in the car seat for one hour to make sure she can tolerate it and the drive. Maggie passed with flying colors.

Well, it sure will be interesting to have both of these little tidbits home!! There is not much rest in store for us, but I am so excited to have them together again. Maybe they will sense and know they are together again as they really played together in my belly. The good thing is that Maggie can no longer sit on Lizzie or kick her. At least for now. Maggie seems to want to rule the roost...sorry Lizzie!! I just had to add this photo of Lizzie's head. She has not had one bad hair day yet!!! Next time I post, I will have many more photos! So keep checking back!!

Thank you all again for your continued prayers and kind words! You truly have been a blessing. Your prayers were answered speedily!!

Blessings and Love,

Great news! What a good God we serve!
I came to your blog all week, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day and I would just look and look at each of the girls' pictures and pray as the Lord led.
They are SO beautiful! And SO blessed to have such a wonderful family.
Will you let me know if there's anything specific that you need please?
Love, Karla B
