How tiny breaths teach us big things


We have so much to be thankful for this week! It would be easy for me to list all the things we need continued prayer for, but this week, I just want to be thankful for what God’s already given us. So…We are thankful that Struthers has survived his first 13 days of life and is thriving, now weighing 2 pounds, 2 ounces! We are thankful for providers that caught a dangerous infection super early. We are thankful that those same providers recognize the God-given ability of a mom to comfort and nourish like no medicine can and have let me hold him and continue holding, rocking and singing to him long past when we should have put him back in his isolette. We are thankful for Eli’s ability to be here when he needs to be and for his safe travels back and forth. We are thankful for my amazing employer, boss and coworkers who have been amazingly supportive through this unexpected absence from work. We are thankful that despite being exposed to several sick people this week, God protected me and I am still healthy enough to continue tending to Struthers. We are thankful that family near and far was able to be here and meet the newest family member much quicker than I would have ever imagined. We are thankful for the hundreds of people around the world praying for us, and patiently awaiting updates. We are thankful for the Ronald McDonald House and all its staff and volunteers for this home away from home. We are thankful that thus far, my body seems to be recovering quite well and that each day is a day further from the “Danger Zone” of a vascular event. We are thankful for an amazing medical team that got me through this very complex and risky pregnancy. We are thankful for the sorority sister who’s now a L&D nurse who told me three weeks ago to demand steroid injections for lung development long before I realized delivery was right around the corner. We are thankful for amazing clinical staff who go above and beyond to care for me and our child. We are thankful for the new friends “Quad Mom” and “Triplet Dad” we’ve made in the NICU. We are thankful that although my body was unable to provide what Struthers needed in the womb, it is able to provide what he needs on the outside. I could go on and on about the blessings that abound in the midst of our troubles. Thank you, Lord, for blessing us beyond measure!
