She is my sunshine!
Even her cry lights up my heart.
Her name is Lia Kate.
Smiley, and active in a bouncy chair.
Squeals with delight when her mommy enters the room.
She needs your prayers.
Lia was born a little early, and was quickly diagnosed with a heart murmur. No big deal, lots of kids and adults have them and they live normally.
After being checked by a specialist, her little heart has a valve that is not completely developed, and after the second check, found an artery that is open in the heart, and causing more stress to her little heart.
Surgeons are watching her closely, and hoping for her to gain more weight by the 11t of May. Surgery like this is tricky when they are so small. The catheter surgery is 99% that all will be corrected, and she will be fine. But she doesn’t weigh enough. If her condition grows worse, then they will have to enter through her chest cavity. Much more dangerous, Much more lingering of sedatives in her little body, and they just don’t know if they can correct it through that method.
Needless to say, her mommy is on an emotional rollercoaster, and her Mimi as well!
God can do this! nothing is too hard for HIM! He hears the prayers of HIS children. I am asking for you to lift her and our family up as you think of us, or as God leads you.
Thanks in advance for joining the army of prayer warriors who are already in place, giving us support, and praying for my Sunshine.
My youngest daughter went to prom this weekend…my heart was not prepared….
While i watched my daughters, and heard their soft words to each other, my heart became full of joy and sadness….its a mothers heart…remembering the days when they could not get along long enough to keep from being grounded, joyful that those days were gone, and thinking how grown up they are, precious young women, a new place in my heart….
Lacey stood by her little sister the entire time, doing her make-up, helping with her hair, and encouraging her…this is the finished product….
Be still my heart!
Going over this in my mind…
It is all because of God’s grace, and compassion that these two are the lovely, soft spoken, compassionate people that they are today. Thru all the bad choices i made, i am blessed beyond words to have them both!
My son blesses me daily, with his love for the LORD, wondering if he will become a pastor…Thank you LORD, i am truly blessed, and not by anything i could have done, but because of your Grace and Mercy…be still my heart…
