Four Weeks and a Praise Report!

I don't have much time as little Miss Hope is super cranky at the moment, but I wanted to take a minute and give an exciting update.

Our test results still are not back and honestly I am ok with it. God has really been working on me in the last few weeks and I am just praising Him for each good day, knowing that no diagnosis can define her, only God can. We do need answers to be able to best care for her and they will come but we are just trusting God's plan for her.

That said, she is FOUR WEEKS OLD TODAY! I will try to get pictures posted later, but this week she had her first bath which she did not care much for, and today she had her first trip to the local zoo!

Now for the excellent news! I am doing flips as I type this, (well not literally, I don't really think that is even possible) but for the first time, tonight Hope has NO bandages on. Her blisters are healed and she has no new ones. I have no idea what the future holds for her but I am praising God with all I have for doing this for her! Thank you all for your prayers. We are just so thankful right now that she is doing so well. NO bandage changing tonight! YAY!

Thank you Lord for the gift you have given us in Hope, she as each of her brothers have, is teaching us so much and drawing us ever closer to You! Children are such a gift! We thank you for blessing us again!

I am so happy for your happiness and your beautiful baby girl. I have found your blog when Hope was born, and lost your address after that. I have been searching all over the net to find your blog again, so I can keep up with all the happy things you are sharing with us.
Your boys are beautiful also, all four of them. You must be such a proud momma of all these children. I have three boys, and would not have ever thought about having a daughter until I saw how well your little Hope fits in your lifestyle ( I mean with the boys).
I also clothdiaper my third son, and did my second one also. It is one of the things I enjoy the most about baby care. So good luck with that.
My sons are 4, 2 1/2 years old and 3 mos old. I use a moby wrap, and it is wonderful how I can take care of my two big boys, while my little one naps or just takes it all in from his secure nest. And my back does not hurt at all.
Enjoy your children as you have been!

My prayers are with you.

Rebecca said...

Wow! I will do a cyber-flip for Hope, as that is probably all I can manage too. Yippee for no bandages! I am so thankful that you are at peace with the test results. I loved when you said that no diagnosis can define Hope, only God can. So, so true.
