God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

Anna Grace - January 15

Just a quick note about last night. At 9:00 pm she was put on 12 ml per hour of Portagen which she appeared to tolerate fine. At 1:00 am they increased her feeds to 20 ml per hour. By 2:00 am she was screaming & crying and inconsalable (but she never threw up). We had an awesome nurse last night (PRAISE GOD) who decided at 2:00 am to turn off the feeds & call the doctor. The doctor said give her tummy a little time to rest & then decrease feed to 16 ml per hour & see how she tolerates it. By about 3:30 am Anna Grace had stopped crying and calmed down. At 4:00 am we turned the feeds back on at 16 ml per hour. She appeared to tolerate that fine. At 6:00 am we increased feeds to 18 ml per hour and I'll be confident by about 8:00 am if she'll be able to tolerate that. Her ultimate goal is 25 ml per hour continuous feeds and THEN to start compressing. I have a feeling our little one will let us know when it is too much. For now, I am thankful for an overall pretty good night. I did manage to get a couple hours sleep tonight. Also, Anna Grace's nurse tonight has been awesome and that has made such a big difference for us. Thank you Lord. Also, thank you friends for praying for us....

I praise the Lord for His provision of this new formula and for Anna Grace's nurses and doctors. I pray that you will be able to rest today and that Anna Grace will be able to tolerate the feeds.
I wish I was there to give you a big (((hug)))!
In His Love,

Lacy and I know all too well the roller coaster that you're going through. The best advice I can give you is to Praise & Pray. Praise God for bringing her this far and pray for continued healing. Let us know if there is anything we can do for you. Praising & Praying!
