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.

We were able to be home for Thanksgiving!  It was an unexpected and welcomed blessing!  While my heart was joyful to be home with my family I also spent the day remembering the families we had met at the hospital who were still there having to spend Thanksgiving at MUSC.  My heart aches for them and I pray that the Lord allows them to be home and settled before Christmas!

Since our week has been such a whirlwind I was in no way prepared to cook a Thanksgiving meal!  So, a very, very sweet couple from our Church arranged to have meals brought to our family for the next two weeks, and that INCLUDED a meal on Thanksgiving Day!  Yes, a generous family in our Church brought us over a smoked turkey and another family brought all the sides to go along with it!  Mee-Maw, Pops, Mee-Mee and Grandpop joined us at our hone on Thanksgiving as well and there was plenty of food for everyone.  It was such a blessing.  It was a relatively quite day.  The gandparents were only over for a couple hours.  We ate and then played charades and then it was time for our little girl to try to get some rest.  It was a quiet day by most people's standards, but it was a really big day for Anna Grace.

As for Anna Grace - she is starting to act like herself again and has even started sleeping through the night again (thank you Lord)!  Now that she is sleeping through the night again I have returned to my bed (as opposed to the floor in AG's room where I had been sleeping).  I still don't feel llike I have caught up on all the sleep I missed while in Charleston!

It has only been a little more than 2 weeks since her surgery, but already Anna Grace wants to ride her brother's bike, climb and swing on the trapeeze bar and has even asked to jump on the trampoline.  All of these activites are of course off limits for the next 8 weeks!!!!!   I have not been giving her any pain medication - only Tylenol at bedtime and she doesn't seem to be in any pain what-so-ever.  It is really quite amazing to see her bounce back so quickly!  The trouble will be continuing to hold her back for the next 8 weeks.  Will it even be possible?????

Please do continue praying for her (1) for no infecftion, (2) ahe has a chest xray on Monday morning - pray that the reulsts would show no fluid build up and that she would be calm and tolerate the xray (3) she has a cardiology appointment on Tuesday please pray that her echo shows good heart function and that everything looks "normal" and that she will cooperate for the echo and for the removal of the stitches.

Thank you friends for continuing to follow our story.  I will post on Tuesday after her appointment and let you know what Dr R says :)
