Gracie Update

First of all we want to thank God for His grace and promises that get us though each day. We also want to thank you all for your thoughts, prayers, emails, phone calls, text messages and meals. It is so comforting to know how much support we have. The last six days have been some of the longest and hardest days of our lives.  Our sweet little girl was showing much improvement yesterday.  It was so encouraging and heart warming to see her smile and laugh and know that during that moment she was in no pain and was happy.  She is nearing the end of the steroids, her does was cut in half Sunday night.  Tonight will be the first night we will not have to wake her up at 1:00 am and give her a dose and that is very exciting.  She still has a long way to go cognitively and developmentally, but we are heading in the right direction. We have to be at the hospital tomorrow morning at 6:30am for her MRI and possible treatment of her jugular vein.  Please pray that Gods peace that surpasses all understanding would be upon all of us, especially her.  We will have decisions to make tomorrow after the MRI, pray that we would have wisdom way beyond our years and a confidence in the decisions that are made.  Pray for a good MRI report, that the swelling is going away and there is no permanent damage.  Katie had a check up today, we are so thankful that she is not showing any signs of progression toward labor.  Continue to pray that the baby can sit tight till 40 weeks.

"Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways" James 1:2-8

We love you guys
