OUR BABY IS ZIPPED UP!  In what seemed like a blink of an eye, Dr. M closed her chest and appeared in the waiting room to tell us that it went well and that she is STABLE.  My jaw must have been wide open because he had a huge grin on his face as he said those magic words.  

It's done.  She's stable.  God is good and gracious.  Thank you Lord for the light of hope which shines through the darkness of my fears.

Please also remember Dr. Mendeloff in your prayers of THANKSGIVING. Besides being incredibly talented, he is truly one of the most amazing people we know.

"The Lord is my light and salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life of whom shall I be afraid?"

Psalm 27:1

  10. Sarah and Patrick,

    We have a friend who had a baby daughter who was born with severe spina bifida (no warning) and other very serious problems. Like Charlotte, Lauren had surgery shortly after her birth and many, many surgeries throughout the 24 years of her life. We called upon our friend to pray for you all, and she's been following the blog since the time of Charlotte's birth. She wants you to know how much she identifies with your situation and to assure you that you have her ongoing prayers.

    Kent and Sandy
