Monday, July 21

Hello Everyone,

The last 24 hours have been very crazy for us. I was discharged from the hospital last night and we headed out to the Ronald MacDonald House. It's a very small room with only one twin bed, so Kyle had to sleep on a mattress on the floor, but it is very clean and a huge blessing to be so close to Suzie during this time. We were able to visit Suzie last night and this morning and she is stable for the moment. Her lungs are doing okay right now, but we know that they are watching her very carefully. They are going to do another sonogram on her brain tomorrow to see how the bleeding is doing so we will give you an update at that time.

It's an emotional roller coaster for us here! The next few days and weeks are very critical and we find ourselves pleading to God on a momentary basis to save our little girl. However, we have seen God work in so many ways and our faith has been strengthened so much in this trial. We have a bigger view of God than we have ever had, but we know that we are going to be tested in so many ways over these next few weeks with all the ups and downs that await us. The thought of losing our little girl is very real to us and yet we are hoping in God's grace and mercy and His control over every detail. We know that we are far too weak to handle this situation and have been reassured of our salvation through all of this because there is no way we could worship Him in the midst of all of this unless He was the One who was providing the grace for us to do so.

We do love having visitors! Beginning Tuesday, I will be spending most of my time either at the hospital or the Ronald MacDonald house and anyone is welcome to visit. Again, we are overwhelmed with the outpouring of love we are receiving from the saints and have never seen God's blessings more clearly than in this most difficult time. Please continue to pray for us! Pray that we would glorify Him no matter what His plan is and pray for our precious little one.

In case you haven't seen pictures of little Suzie, check her out on our blog:

We thank God for you all!

Kyle and Steph
