Determined to find beauty in the unfamiliar places. An unintended journey began and continues. God remains faithful through it all.

Not to be left out of the fun, Elizabeth has an abdominal ultrasound and an endoscopy this morning. So She, Ava and I (Sara) are taking a field trip to Children's Hospital. We monitor the status of the varicose veins in her esophagus with regular endoscopies and since she's been really stable, we haven't had to check her since June. We're praying this is just routine and they won't have to cauterize any vessels this time. The hardest part for her is not being able to eat or drink for the whole morning. Her procedure is at 11:30 and she'll be intubated, so the procedure is not without some risks, we'd appreciate your prayers for our Big Girl. I'll keep you posted!
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.
If you've been touched by Ava's story, please take a moment to comment, or send an email to BlessedByAva@gmail.com. We'd so love to hear from you!
