Today is another waiting day.  With the opening and closing yesterday Ava started to bleed from her chest and bled all night so they’ve been having to give her blood.

They have taken her off her blood thiner so that she will clot – but thats a bit risky as she needs blood thinners so that the shunt in her heart doesn’t get clogged up and stays functional.

And then Jason has left now to go home to get the kids so its just me here today and wow – I’m emotional!  🙂

So I’m sitting right now in the Chapel here at Sick Kids because I just had to pray for strength and faith – my feeble human self is getting the best of me but thankfully Isaiah 40 reminded me yet again what an amazing God we serve.

But please pray for Ava and for me today – my heart is hurting for her today – my poor baby having to go through all of this – its hard to watch.

But she is stable now and hopefully we will have some better news towards the end of the day.

  1. Have been praying for Ava…for healing, and for you, Jason and your family…for strength and comfort. ” The LORD Himself goes before you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged. “

  2. Praying for you Lisa and for sweet precious Ava! This is all such a roller coaster as you said previously…praying you continue to find your rest and peace in Him!
    “Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with you all” 2 Thessalonians 3:16

  3. Praying for you and Jason and all your children. My heart goes out to you.
    Praying for rest, peace, strength, and God’s will in your lives, healing for little Ava.

  4. Thank you all for you support and encouragement today. I get the feeling that none of the drs and nurses are happy about where we are today, but Ava is in God’s hands, so we will just continue to trust.

    And Sara – it’s so cool that you posted the lyrics to that song because I was thinking of it last night. For a while before Ava was born I couldn’t sing it, but now even though it’s incredibly hard to say to God, “Your will, your way” I know that’s the only thing I can say. I just didn’t think this journey would be this hard!!!

  5. Lisa & Jason,

    We sang this song on Sunday and it made me think of Ava. May it bring you peace.

    Lay Me Down

    Verse 1
    With this heart open wide
    From the depths from the heights
    I will bring a sacrifice

    Chorus 1
    I lay me down
    I’m not my own
    I belong to You alone
    Lay me down lay me down
    Oh hand on my heart this much is true
    There’s no life apart from You
    Lay me down lay me down

    It will be my joy to say
    Your will Your way
    It will be my joy to say
    Your will Your way
    It will be my joy to say
    Your will Your way always


  6. Oh, sweet Lisa. I have no words as I can hardly fathom all you are going through. You are an incredible woman, wife and mother. We who know you are so blessed to have you in our lives. We love you and are praying right along with you for the miraculous healing of your sweet, precious daughter, Ava. Praying for strength for your family and for a peace that passes all understanding. He is able, more than able. We are weak but He is strong. Praise the Lord for that. Continue to let Him carry you through. You are never alone. We are with you on this journey too, on our knees to the Lord. Love you.

  7. Praying for you especially today, Lisa. xo

    Isaiah 43:1-3a

    1 But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. 2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,and the flame shall not consume you. 3 For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.”
