It was two years ago yesterday that Jason proposed to me.
In the last two years I think we have been through enough 'hard' to last our entire marriage.
...in my humble opinion...
Our Emily was moved out of the ICU this morning.
Jason and I are in awe of how fast this process is going.
Fast is not normally in Emily's vocabulary.
No one dares give us a time frame for when we can take her home but the goal is to have her home for Christmas.
Our hang up will be with Emily's feeding, as is usually the case, but even with that we are all cautiously optimistic.
They had her incision uncovered for a few minutes this morning while they were removing one of her drain tubes. This little lady has been through a war.
This whole business of Emily being born with a heart defect was not part of the plan.
And even though it's been a part of our lives now for four months, there are days it still doesn't seem real.
And then there are days where the reality of it just hurts.
That will probably never go away completely.
The one thing I've learned more than anything else through this experience is that God always provides exactly what you need to get you through even the biggest of plan changes.
I'll always be grateful for that.
Thank you ... all of you ... for being part of what God gave us to get us through.
