Waiting

Right now we are waiting...
We are waiting 2-4 weeks until his first heart surgery.
We are waiting to see what happens with his CSF leak to see if he needs another surgery. 
We are waiting to see if another hospital is recommended to us if he does need that surgery.
We are waiting to hear more from the doctors who don't work over the weekend.
We are waiting to decide how long Caleb will be in Illinois.
We are waiting on the Lord. 

Please pray that Jude will get the nutrition he needs to heal.
Please pray that he will not get an infection. 
Please pray for his swelling to go down.  It affects so many things. 
Please pray that the Lord would show us how to love both our boys as they need. 

Thank you so very much.  :-)
"I have learned that faith means
trusting in advance what will
only make sense in reverse."
Philip Yancey

Edited to add later:  There was question as to why doctors don't work over the weekend.  Doctors do work over the weekend.  One of our ICU doctors is a traveling doctor and had to return home until Monday.  Our cardiac surgeon is out of town, and we will hear from him on Monday as to whether he can have a tiny bit of breast milk.  And, the plastic surgeon who performed Jude's surgery is off for the weekend.  He visits Jude daily and will continue to do so next week.  Things slow down in hospitals during the weekend, and we're grateful for the peaceful time together.

Praying as you wait!

Wait for the LORD;
be strong, and let your heart take courage;
wait for the LORD!

I wish I could offer greater comfort than which you have already received. For what it's worth, it sounds like the physicians have been communicating well with you. I don't pretend to know the difficulty and trials you're suffering through, but I pray that your family would have strenghth to endure. May God have mercy and grace upon you.
