2:00 am bath and bows

Lia was sleeping so well earlier that the nurses left her alone. That meant that at 2:00 am it was time for clean up. She was such a great patient as they ever so gently bathed her and changed her sheets. They are so good about making this painful process as good as possible. After the wound cleansing, teeth brushing, new sheets, and being weighed she and Princess bear were given matching hair bows. She also had a popsicle with her favorite color purple on top. Now it is 3:00 am and we can catch a few more zzz's.

For an update on baby Landry you prayed for: I haven't had a chance to speak with her parents, but was so encouraged to see them with her at the end of our room in icu. Praise the Lord, God must be healing her tiny body!

There is a also a story in the star-telegram and mineral wells paper about baby Peyton Hood who passed away. This is such a reminder of the brevity of life and how we should cherish every moment. It should also remind us to be so careful this time of year when the snakes are out.

So we are seeing that the Lord gives and the Lord takes away, blessed be the name of the Lord.

Kiss your babies and cherish each moment. I know I am seeing the gift of life in a whole new way lately.

That girly girl Lia...needed her bow...if only it were pink, purple, no- pink! We are so happy to see her able to eat a popsicle. We will take those baby steps to get her out of PICU and into a regular room.
