5/11 11:30 am - The baby dedication was wonderful and we are so happy Rebekah got to go! Wanted to give an update on our baby but I have to say first that I am rather discouraged and running on an empty tank from sleep deprivation. The caffeine does not seem to be helping and I feel like she is having more severe spells that, short of a ventilator, are not going to stop. God has been so good to give us these 21 days with Rebekah.
Rebekah continued to have 'spells' all day. I made sure each of the boys had some time with her.
Isaiah and Rebekah. Josiah couldn't wait to hold her too.
Jeremiah holding his sister. He played with her hands, looked into her eyes, and enjoyed loving on her. Josiah came and gave her some kisses too.
5/11 6:10 pm - Isaiah 41:13 (NIV) - For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.
5/12 7:42 am - Psalm 30:5(b) Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning. Happy 3 weeks, Rebekah!
I am sorry that I cannot write a thank you note to all of the people who have been caring for us and lifting us up in prayer. I sent this thank you email below to my church’s MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group, but it is a thank you note that really applies to everyone who has reached out to us.
Dear MOPS sisters,
