Headbands, Spaghetti and Adventureless Days

So yesterday Shaina and I went down the hall at the hospital to get a drink of water.

I came back to find the Warrior Princess defeated...


...by a headband. It wasn't her greatest moment.

Today Shaina and I went back to Wadsworth for worship and to attend a Spaghetti Dinner benefit that some awesome folks from the church put on to raise some money for Chaia.


The rest of the day has been very quiet...and quiet is good.

Monday is a big day. We will release all your work in the Praying For Chaia video and celebrate Chaia's 50th day in the hospital.

Most days I want to curse at the hospital experience because it is hard and sad...and 50 days stinks in one sense but is absolutely beautiful in another. To think that Week 2 began with a bad prognosis and a very, very sick little lady...that makes 50 days pretty significant.

And if it takes 50 more days for God to do this work He is doing, then bring it on.

But if it can be done in 3, I'd take that too.

So so hope it takes as little days as possible to make her healthy and back home! the headband slip....she probably did not want to see the end of the Brown's game! :) And, yes, she is a cutie! God Bless everyone!!!
(Should have worn her "Brown's" head piece...just sayin!)

What a cute little thing!!! If it takes 50 more days for God to do His work, we will be there with you the whole way, praying and lifting you up :) Hoping for a great week for all 3 of you. Praying in KY.

Mark 10: 51-52 Then Jesus said to him, “What do you want me to do for you?” The blind man said to him, “My teacher, let me see again.” Jesus said to him, “Go; your faith has made you well.”

Jesus: What do you want me to do for you Chaia?
Chaia: Well, for starters remove this evil headband!

So cute! Lord, we thank you for this joyful and precious moment among so many that are worrisome. We love you and thank you for your unconditional love for us. We thank you for everything we have and are, and and we know that you work all things for good if we turn to you and trust you. We thank you that Chaia has been successful at the gradual weaning from her meds and R2D2! We ask that you bless and continue to heal her little heart. In Jesus' name, Amen
