Chest tubes

Lia woke up in a happy mood this am, but nausea quickly set in again. They say this is all normal and not to expect an appetite for awhile. Her little body is having to adjust to a big change as her path of blood has been totally rerouted. They are hoping to take out one or two out of the three chest tubes today. This will probably be a very painful process so please pray for minimal pain. Her chest incision looks great and does not give her any pain that we are aware of, but the chest tubes are painful. The drs are trying to get us a translator now to help talk to her, so if you speak Mandarin please come for a visit!

I was just getting ready to comment on the last post, when I saw you had checked in again. I'm praying for Lia, and the chest tubes (that it won't be painful), and for the nausea to be over with, and for the Lord to bring a translator.

Please Lord, you know these requests, continue to hold Lia and her mama close to you, bring healing, remove the nausea, let the chest tube removal be pain free--we know this is NOT too big for you! And will you bring a translator, please? In Jesus name, Amen.

Precious baby girl. It's so hard when they hurt, the smiles aren't there, and there is nothing you can do to fix it. So happy that she finally smiled-- I know the way that lifts a mama's aching heart.

Thankful to hear that Landry is doing better. Continuing to pray for all of you.

Heal quickly precious Lia, your new life is waiting-- for you to get back to living it to the fullest . . . happy, smiling girl!

Love and blessings~

Suzette - we are continuing to pray for little Lia and you all. I hope you are getting rest. I know from our time at the hospital last August that it is physically and emotionally draining. Remember to take care of yourself too!
