Sweet Gifts

So many blessings that the Lord have been poured out on us.  Here are just a few examples: 

My parents are both here now. There have been lots of good friends in who have driven up from home.  Brandon's brother is getting in tonight. We have been surrounded by friends and family.  It has been sweet. 

A friend of mine, Katie Warren, is a med student here who I have been terrible about keeping in contact with.  She was assigned to work at the UNM NICU for the last three weeks, and we were incredibly happy and surprised to see her at Jude's bedside this morning.  It is soooo good to see her, and she has been such a comfort and blessing...even getting to help me further in my recovery since I was discharged so quickly last night.

A friend of my Aunt Linda, Kati, "happened" to be working at the NICU at Presbyterian and was able to update her and my mom and my mom's side of the family...who live on the other side of the country and can't be here. 

Jude's nurse today is a woman who has recently left the field of neuro-radiology...after eleven years.  When I found that out, I asked if she was placed here with us because of that.  She hadn't been, but God knew we would need her.  She was even able to explain to us the CT scan that the neonatologist didn't seem to understand.  She has been such a blessing.

There is soooo much more that He has done, but these are just a few things I wanted to write down right now.  God is taking good care of us.  We are trusting Him, and we continue to ask you to pray for Jude...and that we would trust Him more and more. 

We're so grateful for all of you!  THANKS!

Psalm 32:10b...The Lord's unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in Him.

We are praying for your family as you abide in God's love and presence.

I'm praying for your sweet, beautiful family Mandy! Marissa texted me yesterday asking me to pray and filling me in on little Jude's birth. Praying for the Lord's comfort, peace and wisdom for you and Brandon. Sending love from California.
