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 - July 1

Anna Grace had a good night last night. I am so thankful. I think she has turned a corner, she is starting to act like herself again and is even smiling and cooing at me. She is eating the Portagen OK - enough for the doctors to be satisfied. I even unhooked her this morning and took her for a little stroll down the halls for about 15 minutes. She seemed to enjoy just being out of the bed for a little while. There are some pet therapy dogs doing a pet parade here today and we are really excited about seeing them. The doctors have not yet made rounds today, but I know they are planning on taking another urine sample from Anna Grace to be analyzed. This will tell us if the IV antibiotics are killing the bacertia. Please pray that it is working and that we don't have to start fresh on a new antibiotic, Lord willing.

I think Brian is going to spend the night at the hospital tonight and let me go to the townhouse. I need a shower and a good night sleep, in that order :)

So... I just wanted to throw this out there in case you might be looking for a way to minister to kids. There is a baby (about Anna Grace's age) just down the hall from us and her Mom works and can't be up here with her. The nurses are busy and don't really have the time to just sit an hold her, although they do the best they can. There was a volunteer who came up here yesterday and held this little baby for about 2 hours and this normally fussy baby quieted down and just sat in this person's arms, content and quiet and happy just to be held. So.... just so you know there are always babies at the hospital who need to just be held - if you have a couple hours of time to spare to volunteer there are no shortage of babies who want to be rocked and loved on.

So, we are thankful that the LORD has been so gracious and merciful to us. He continues to provide for us and to give us what we need exactly when we need it - from an e-mail to a hug to a scripture verse from HIS WORD - the Holy Spirit is alive and at work all around us. I can see the LORD working so clearly - so tangibly - all PRAISE and GLORY to the LORD!

Sooooo glad to hear that Anna Grace is doing better! Praise the Lord! Continuing to pray for no more infection and for a quick recovery!
It broke my heart to read about that poor baby and mama --- I guess I take it for granted that we can uproot and "move" into the hospital for the duration of our child's stay. What a wonderful ministry to those families that don't have that luxury.
Heart hugs,
