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 17

Well, last night was a pretty good night.She had about 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep (in the bouncy seat) which means that Mommy had 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep. THANK YOU LORD for your mercy and for hearing my cry!

About 4:00 am she spit up so we had to clean her up - then it was time for her IV antibiotics at which time the nurse discovered the IV was no longer any good, then Anna Grace pulled her NG tube out of her nose. So, the nurse suggested I take a walk and they put in a new NG tube and IV ( it is now in her little foot) and changed her diaper. Poor baby, it is so hard to see your little one in pain. My heart truly breaks for her. I found a little chapel at the hospital during this procedure and went there and prayed and CALLED OUT TO GOD for my daughter and wept tears over her. Hard. Trying to focus on the ONE who calms the storms and NOT on the storm.

Then the nurse was changing the dressing on her infection site on her chest & thought that it didn't look good. So the doctor had a look this morning - it has been decided that we need to start "packing the infection site". The nurses said that it would hurt, but that it might help this to heal. There was also so talk about changing her antibiotic, but I think the jury is still out on that. So, please PRAY that this infection can get under control and that her little chest can start to HEAL. Infections can turn serious quickly so PLEASE join us in praying over this for Anna Grace.

They have already taken a chest x-ray this morning & if it shows no fluid build up today then I feel pretty confident that they will take out her chest tube today.

Also, I don't think a decision has been made completley yet, but I think they will increase her feeds a little today & see how she tolerates that. She is still at 18 ml per hour continuous and her goal is 25 ml per hour.

So, yet another big day for Anna Grace.

Thank you Lord for rest last night, thank you Lord for our sweet nurse, thank you Lord that your hear our cries.

Tina, I met you a few weeks ago in the PCICU waiting room with my 5 1/2 month old daughter Maia (HLHS). I've been thinking of and praying for you and your family, especially Anna Grace. We are praying for the infection to heal and the chest tube drainage to subside. Please let us know if there is anything that we can do for you. Blessings, Shannon Deeb
