~ for Ava to remain infection and complication-free!
~ for Ava to recover from the procedure quickly and start to breastfeed with gusto!
~ for Ava's parent's not to drop where they stand! (Read: supernatural stamina for Matt as he works on writing his paper and multiplied rest for both of us. Tonight I fell asleep three times while telling the girls their bedtime story...I'd rouse and wonder what I was talking about?!? It made for an interesting story though!)
~ for Ava's sisters to hang in there and for a special blessing on our tremendous caregivers. God bless these amazing women for loving our girls so well.
Finally, now that we've seen the final report, Ava's MRI from Friday showed that some of her brain was harmed by her enlarged ventricles. It's very possible that this area will recover now that the pressure has been relieved and we are of course praying for that. We'll know more after a follow-up MRI in 3 weeks.
Bless you for YOUR stamina in lifting up our family day after day. Please do not grow weary! Your prayers are having an impact. Matt and I know that in spite of all we're going through, our marriage is as strong as ever, our family is strained, but not broken, our faith is steadfast and we are able to give glory to God...by the grace of God, because of your prayers.
