a step in the right direction

Monday, June 6, 2011

The echo didn't come back 100% clear of fluid. My heart sunk a little as I watched the technician clicking and measuring on his machine. A myriad of thoughts were flowing through my mind. I didn't want to have to tell Amber but as I spoke with her she showed such faith and peace. I was challenged and confronted in my lack of faith at that moment. We waited to hear the 'official' report and it wasn't as bad as I thought. Both the surgeon's nurse and our cardiologist were encouraged. It appeared as though the fluid had actually decreased slightly from Friday and there has been less fluid draining from the tube.

A step.
Not a leap.
A step in the right direction.
I'll take it.

I will be sitting down with his surgeon tomorrow morning to discuss the future plans and see what he wants to do.

Amber and I kept saying how thankful we were for the little victories. Thank you for praying. The amount of support and love we have felt has been overwhelming (in a good way). People I don't even know are writing and telling how much they are praying. We are humbled.

Thank you. This has been a journey, and like Ron preached this past Sunday we would not be able to make it without the body of Christ, the church. (I have been listening online)
