A Happy Meal Indeed!

It's been a few weeks since Elizabeth's last illness and somehow, she's become a completely new kid! It's really miraculous. She's begun eating like never before and eating real normal table food...PB&J (with crusts, but cut in triangles), a hamburger and fries from Sonic (won't be going there again, but she enjoyed the burger), quesadillas with refried beans and sour cream, oh and olives!, a Denver scramble and toast with butter, and tonight she dined on sloppy joes and carrot sticks (dipped in ranch dressing of course)!

I watch her eat and my jaw drops. Quite suddenly, the fear is gone. She just knows she can do it and launches right in...that is, after I tell her that she's eating the same thing as Jude (our sweet friend who is 4 and a half). THANK you for your steadfast prayers for our little Bean. She's doing amazingly and we give all the glory to God. I can't figure out how to embed the video...so until I get the kinks worked out, to watch the Miracle in action click HERE.

The video is private and won't let me watch it, but this is SOOOOOO good to hear! I can't wait to feed her myself!

You are KIDDING ME!!! I watched the video--my, how far you have all come! It shouldn't be hard to believe with such a mighty God leading you, but it is still HARD TO BELIEVE! Have fun on all your picnics and cookouts this summer
:-)

With thanks and praise for you,
Kelly from St. Lucas (Nick's mom)

My favorite part is the elbow on the table, like "Glad this is a big deal to you Mom, but (yawn) I'm just eating a sloppy joe..." like she's done it every day of her life. Praising God with you for this huge victory!

Yeah for answered prayer! After watching the video with Daniel I think he is up for sloppy joes tonight too. Hugs to you all from us.
