And He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow...

  Here's lookin' at you!!!!  First, PRAISE GOD!!!  Critter is continuing to to amaze and impress everyone in the NICU.  Again, we entered here last Friday with a pretty bleak report.  Her labs were all over the board and pretty much a grave concern was present.  In fact, after entering the NICU, her numbers only got worse....THAT was Friday.

Today, is Tuesday!!!  Pierson is officially 8 days old....LABS ARE COMPLETELY NORMAL....they are talking of not sending us home Friday, but now two days early....Tomorrow.

What a powerful testament to our God and Savior that he hears our prayers and is merciful to answer them!  Critter's number are completely normal and as another added concern was whether or not she could receive and digest M's milk.  So far, she is doing very well and the doctors are amazed by improvement.  Lord willing, by the end of today, she will be on a bottle that is completely M's milk. 

So, just a brief update and again a thank you to all of you, our faithful prayer warriors and friends.  

Lord willing our next update will be from our home as we welcome Critter back for a second homecoming!
 "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness...Therefore don't worry about tommorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble."    Matthew 6:34
