Prayin' For Chaia Winner
How you get these kids to cooperate for this is beyond me. Did you get ahold of some of Chaia's sedation meds?
Congrats to the Schnees for winning the MOST CREATIVE Category.
Chaia has had a rough 24 hours. She is back on BiPap (think big bird beak with a helmet). They think she might have a virus. Viruses in you or me often just need bed rest, liquids, and some medicine.
Viruses for a little one in heart failure can be a bit more complex.
The hard thing is that her symptoms for a virus look very similar to her symptoms for heart failure.
So, this is a pretty significant step in the wrong direction...But if its not a virus, then we're looking at heart failure. Hard to believe we're rooting for a virus.
The other part of this story is that Shaina is sick (the doctors are suggesting with the same virus). Fever, aches and pains.
So...navigating these waters is tricky.
Will adversity and suffering shape us or crush us?
God has counted us worthy of suffering...So finding ways to delight in His sustaining grace is our task, goal and privilege.
But this delight seems like a violent swim upstream.
Anyone got some water wings?
Or a motor boat?
