After the last post, I just had to combat death with LIFE… Thank you so much, birthmoms and birthdaddies, for your choice for LIFE and taking that road less traveled.
Two Burley Fellows:
Josiah is now ten pounds and 22 inches long…Go Josiah!! I took him to the cardiologist and found that: The POF (foramen ovale) is closing on its own!! His ventricle pressures are still higher than they should be but have gone down. However, he still has stenosis in his pulmonary arteries, the left is smaller than the right. But, the cardiologist was very encouraged and we do not have to go back until the end of October!!
Eli has not been right since his shots two weeks ago, he has begun head banging and has huge bags under his eyes and his sleep patterns have changed… he did not get the MMR/and 18 month shots since he is behind. He got his 12 month shots. But…. At 11 months his head was in the 45th percentile and his height/ weight were 3rd and 5th respectively…now, at 18 months, his head measures in the 75th percentile and his height/weight are 61 and 67 respectively!! So wow!! He has grown and is awesome, but we all know that don’t we!
Death/Life… many, many, someones make the choice every day…Don’t you think our special ones have a quality of life?? Don’t you think they have a purpose?? It is so easy to see their value when you SEE them…but when they are inside, just because you cannot see them, doesn’t mean they aren’t just as valuable to God who CAN see them smile, and do flips, and blink at bright lights and wince at loud noises.
God saw that precious one’s parents today, God saw the doctors and nurses in that facility today…God saw you today as you cried in anguish over the loss of another baby… But tomorrow, his or her momma and daddy will need the warmth of a loving God’s forgiveness, the embrace of a Jesus with skin on believer…the healing of very empty body and arms… And at that time, be ready to forgive them, won’t you?
