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 - June 27 - Update # 2

So we just got home from Anna Grace's appointment. Overall the doctor was pleased with how she looked. She weighs 16 pounds 3 ounces now and is in the 30th precentile in height & weight. Her O2 sats today were 85, which is awesome! She had her chest x-ray which still showed some fluid around her lung, but he said it looked the same as last time, so not any worse which is good.

The only hiccup today was that I mentioned to him that she has had some puffyness under her eyes in the morning - it's pretty signicant. It decreases as the day goes on though. He said that it could be the result of an issue with her kidneys. During her last appointment with Dr. Y we had her urine & blood checked and she had high levels of protein in her urine. Anyway.... he said that he wants to follow up in a couple months with some more tests to be sure that her kidneys are OK and to just watch the puffyness. If it continues and is persistent to let him know & to bring her in for some testing. So, please be praying that if there is a problem with her kidneys that the Lord would just heal that and that it wouldn't be an issue for her. We'll keep you posted.

As for the whole sleeping thing... I of course mentioned it to him in case there was some remedy that I wasn't aware of to help my baby sleep. No such luck..... he said that she has just been through a lot in her 6 months of life and that if she was a healthy baby he would tell me to put her in her crib and let her cry. He said that he thinks she really needs to be a couple months post-op before we can even talk about doing that. So... for now we will just continue doing what we're doing and pray that the Lord will help her rest and relax.

So glad her appointment went well! We'll be praying about her puffiness.
I'm sorry you're having a hard time with sleep --- I'm afraid I'm no help on that front.
Looking forward to the day when both our heart heros are post-op enough to have a playdate!
