We have just had a whirlwind of a time here – we said goodbye to our sweet Ava yesterday after Sarah finished her morning at the Diabetes Day center and then packed up and headed home!   I was hesitant to leave my baby, but we needed to get our other kids and we didn’t feel comfortable sending Jason back with Sarah and having to manage her care,  since we are still in the confused and befuddled stage as we are trying to figure this whole diabetes thing out!

And then I find out that today they just might try to remove Ava’s ventilator!   Which is wonderful and scary all at the same time.  So please pray.

We are heading back to TO now,  so sorry we couldn’t go to church and be with our Harvest family.  I can’t tell you just how much we long for our life to return to “normal”, even though our normal is going to look quite different now.

I’ll keep you posted as always!

  1. Lisa, Merry Christmas to you all and so pleased that you are together at least! Waiting and expecting a miracle for you and baby Ava! We missed you at church as I’m sure you missed being there….we love you!

  2. Wishing you safe travels back to Toronto. Praying you have a blessed Christmas as a family of seven — wow, seven! May God keep you together and safe through the holiday season. He is a God of Miracles and we are praying seeking Him in you journey.

  3. Praying you had a safe return to Toronto and to sweet Ava. The 7 of you back together again. First Christmas as a family of 7, that’s pretty wonderful!!! Your Harvest family missed you today as well but you guys are constantly on our hearts, minds and prayers. I thought of you as the service closed out today and just want to remind you that YOU ARE LOVED and we do indeed serve the GOD OF MIRACLES.

  4. Lisa, I have no doubt that you and Jason will deal with your “new normal” very well. There will be a learning curve, and right now you have heavy hearts, but time, and God’s grace will help.
    Keeping you all in my prayers! xo
