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 9

It's nearly 8:30 pm and I am just now getting around to posting. It has been a big day for Anna Grace & the entire Bentley family. Brian & I got to the hospital this morning about 6:30 am. It was such a treat to see our little girl's face. She's had so many tubes & tape on her little face this week - now on her face she only has one small little NG tube going into her nose. We've come a long way! After the doctors made their rounds this morning we got the green light to have one of the tubes (the Arterial line) removed from her tummy - so we dropped a line today - hooray! Since that tube was removed they were able to finally start giving her breast milk through her NG tube. When I left tonight she was up to 9 ml per hour through her NG tube. She still has a long way to go, but she appeared to be tolerating the milk well. The doctors said that she may get to drop another line tomorrow or Monday (the RA line). So perhaps Sunday or Monday we'll be losing that line (in her chest). Please join us in praying that Anna Grace will be able to tolerate the breast milk and not have any problems digesting the milk or tolerating the fat in the milk (which is common for these babies).

Also, today Brian went back to Spartanburg along with my Mom (who has been watching Zachary at the townhome for the last two weeks). Zachary left today too and went to his Mee-Mee & Grandpapa's lake house. So, it's just me & Anna Grace in Charleston until Wednesday when my Dad & Step-Mom come out from Texas. Lots of changes for our family today, but we know that the Lord will sustain us :)

Thank you all for being faithful to continue to cover our family in prayer!

So great to hear that Anna Grace is doing so well! Brian and Milo met the other day and I am looking forward to meeting you. While Brian and Milo are back in the upstate we will have to grab lunch together!
