Praise God

Thank you all so much for praying for us this morning, the past week, and really the past year! We continue to be amazed by God's kindness to our family. I was very emotional when it came time to let Suzie go into surgery. I just wanted to hold my baby close to me!! The surgery went just as long as they had predicted, and the problem was exactly what we prayed for. The catheter going from the ventricles to the reservoir was a little clogged, so they simply replaced it and sewed her back up. She was crying a lot when we first saw her and her voice was a little hoarse from being intubated. She also has half of her beautiful hair shaved off:( They gave her a little morphine to help with the pain. She is just exhausted but being the very finiky sleeper that she is (she wants to be in her crib and wants to be swaddled tightly in the her dark, quiet room with the fan running) she isn't sleeping too much. She finally took a little bit of formula and hopefully will go back to sleep soon. We hope to be released tomorrow!

Thank you again for your prayers. We feel the love of God through His children and are so blessed to have such amazing support!

Praise the Lord!!! Keep us posted, we will be praying for good rest for all of you tonight.. will both you and Kyle stay with her? That hoarse cry after intubation is so sad.. I remember that when Conner had his surgery. So sad.
