Double the fun!
We've been at home for 4 days now and Elizabeth seems to be slowly getting her strength back. She's still not fully recovered, but tomorrow at 6:30am, we'll show up at the hospital for an endoscopy to see how her the varicose veins in her esophogus are doing. This time though, we'll also be bringing Hannah Mae, who will ALSO be getting an endoscopy as a result of her severe reflux, sliding hiatal hernia and persistant blood in her vomits. Yuck! Thank God my mom is in town and can keep Ruby so both matt and I can be at our girls' bedsides. It's a little weird to be taking them both in, but we're so thankful that we were able to coordinate things so they could be done back to back! Elizabeth will certainly help her little sister to be brave. As always, we'd really appreciate your prayers for safety. We're old hat at Elizabeth getting intubated to undergo the procedure, but putting Hannah through all those pokes, and a sedated procedure reminds us that there truly are risks and we need God's protection for both our little angels. Thanks in advance! We'll let you know how it goes.
Created to share news with family and friends through difficult pregnancies, countless diagnoses, a move across the country and the growth of our family from two to six, this blog has become a chronicle of God's faithfulness to our family. We are humbled by your friendship and prayer support throughout the journey, and are blessed to have such faithful companions all over the world.
