Simply...Its a miracle




Mei-Ling is home. The doctor was surprised at how well she was doing when he came in to see her this morning, so he removed her catheter. He had expected to leave it in until Friday. Her lab work came back perfect and Mei-Ling reached up for him to pick her up, and she waved bye-bye to him when he left the room. He calls her the little princess. When he came back in the late afternoon, he asked if Melanie and Casi would like to take her home ! What a joyous moment for everyone, except the nurses said they were all going to miss her so much. For all that she has been through, she has the sweetest personality and never seems to be fussy. And her smile just wins everyone over.
She is one happy baby to be in her own home. Amazingly, she has been crawling, and acts as if nothing happened to her. Last night right after she got back from surgery, she had some pain medication but nothing after that first dose. She will have her stitches out Tuesday if all goes well. What a little miracle this baby is and her quick recovery is testament to all the prayers offered up for her.

Just simply...a miracle. Thank you all so much for all the prayer on her behalf and for our family.

Dear Patty! I am so happy. Mei-Ling is such a dear little girl and everyone must rejoice in her recovery. I will keep praying for you all, but my heart is happy. Praise God!

Praise the Lord! She is such a little cutie pie.

Deanna said...

Oh, what a relief to read this! She is so precious and it just breaks my heart that she has had to endure so much already.

Deanna said...

I've been reading here for quite awhile so I do understand where you're coming from and respect your journey. I wonder why Mother Theresa was included in Irene's list. She was an amazing, selfless CHRISTIAN woman. Why would mention of her be considered controversial in any way?

Patty said...

Deanna, some consider mother tereas a universalist, because she never tried to convert those she ministered to and would make comments about there being different roads to heaven.
I suspect from the comments, its just simply a matter of making some sort of point. It seems they all have been that way.

I am so happy for all of you! When my Mo was able to leave the hospital he was nothing but charming with all of the nurses and doctors. He was just so glad to get back to his home.

I will continue to pray for you all!

Sadly, so many people in the world think prayer is redundant. Clearly He hears our prayers today. I'm so pleased Mei-Ling is home again!

What a precious little girl.
I'm so glad her parents were able to take her home early!
I'm sure they were relieved!
