Well it is about 12:30 a.m. Monday morning and we are just getting back from the hospital where Chaia was resting well. She is to go all night without CPAP...which will make 24 hours of Hi-Flo oxygen with Chaia doing all the breathing herself. Then we will assess next steps.
There are talks of big steps this week.
Weaning Milrinone (the blood pressure/heart medicine).
Beginning Feeds (either through the nose or via bottle).
Moving from Heparin to Cumadin.
Each step gives us both a sense of excited anticipation and a sense of fear in the unknown.
Each step in small or big ways can move us toward life or toward death.
And even though we have committed since day one of pregnancy to place Chaia on the altar as an offering back to God, to leverage her life for His glory, the temptation in my heart is to step in and take back the offering.
This week we have to channel our inner-Abraham and trust God more than we love Chaia.
Pray for this in us.
I'm going to put a few posts up over the next week specifically on the example of Abraham, so stay tuned for those. Also, keep sending the "Prayin' For Chaia" pictures in. You guys are awesome. We have about 50 entries in so far and you have through this coming weekend to get your pics in and I will show you what we got next Monday.
God wants you to trust Him more than you love ________ this week.
The hardest step might be filling in the blank.
