Last week we got the ok to travel up to Indiana for my niece Brittany’s wedding. It was a great time and Charlie had so much fun playing with aunts, uncles, cousins, Nana and Papa, and friends of Mommy and Daddys!! I have tried to be so cautious about her being exposed to alot of kids at once, as to keep her from catching a cold or virus.
Would you know the second night we were there, her own two sisters were up all night vomiting and with fevers!!!! Charlie slept through it all, never got sick, and when we got home and had her fourth treatment on Monday, all of her counts were good!! Thank you Jesus, for your Hand of protection!
Dr. Watts said he wants Charlie to have a chest x-ray this Monday, “just to see where we are”. I am hoping, praying and believing that “where we are” is the at the beginning of many “Miracle Mondays” to come!
I have been unusually anxious (not directly about Charlie) lately, and I am refusing to allow discouragement take up residence here. I read a womens devotional yesterday, which happened to be on the topic of becoming who God wants you to be. We often get lost in doing for others and pleasing everyone else, we forget to ask God who HE wants us to be. He had a plan in mind when He made each one of us. For me…I always wanted to be a mom. I am thanking God today for the opportunity to be mommy to 3 fabulous little girls!
The scripture that went with yesterdays devotion was…”I will praise You for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalm 139:14
This is the scripture that I had written in colorful magic marker and stickers and hung on the wall at the end of Charlie’s bed while she was in the hospital. What a great reminder that He has it all in control.
Sweet Charlie, you were WONDERFULLY made!!!!
Thank you to all of you who have prayed, supported, cried with us, sent cards, made phone calls, and given hugs. We love you all!
