I'm baaaaaaacccckkk!!! I've been in hiatus for what seems like forever. I just got tired of writing. Mostly because even though this is MY blog and I can write about whatever I want, I still care about people's feelings. So therefore, I don't write what I really feel as to not hurt anyone.
But I'm over that.
Lot's has happened. End of school, summer break, vacation, death, mission trip, family time, salvations, new friends, new school year, frustrations, joys, and the list goes on and on.
There are these friends of ours that had a baby last Wednesday. All seemed well with baby Jenna and then they tested her oxygen and it was low. They medi- flighted her to a bigger hospital and there they determined that she had heart problems. Yesterday was the surgery, so I found me a substitute teacher. Actually, she volunteered. She came over to the house, did school with the boys and then hung out with them.
While I was walking into the hospital, I was thinking that my problems just seem so small compared to others problems. I think that is God's way of humbling me. And boy is it humbling.
When I saw my friends, the mom and dad, they looked tired, wore out and just plain weary. They had talked to the surgeon and the surgeon had done many surgeries like this one, so it was a relief to find that out. The surgery was risky but the Doc said there shouldn't be any problems. We waited and the phone kept ringing. Updates on how baby Jenna was. Finally four hours later, they received the call they had been waiting for. Surgery was over and baby Jenna was doing great.
Praise the Lord!!!
The relief on my friends faces didn't show right away. Might have been because there were many people there they were trying to inform, maybe it was because they hadn't actually talked to the Doctor. But when that Doctor came to talk to them, to tell them that their baby was going to be fine and was doing great, that is when the relief showed.
It was awesome to witness this miracle. Baby Jenna has to have a couple more heart surgeries as she gets older, but a big obstacle was conquered yesterday.
I find it amazing that a baby's heart is the size of a grape. Add to that all those tiny vessels and veins that probably look like thread, but God equipped Doctors to perform surgery on this. But only God is in the miracle business. And His miracles are many.
