3 Months old…

Ok so I’m a little late, but our precious Ava was three months old March 4th… and she is also 10 lbs now too which is exciting.   And sometimes I look at her and think that she looks so ‘normal’….

But then the other day I held her and just cried for the fact that she isn’t a normal healthy baby, even just for her own sake.     She is who she is and I know that, but oh, sometimes my heart just gets the best of me and I just wish that we weren’t on this journey at all, and that my precious Ava was born perfect and healthy and that we didn’t have any worries or cares with her.

And now Friday at 9:30 is her echo here in London where we will find out if her heart function is still deteriorating or not.  If it hasn’t, her test in Toronto can be scheduled to see if her heart is ready for her next surgery.    If it has  there is a chance we will be admitted again into Sick Kids because she may need to go on some heavy-duty meds to help her heart out.

But we are still trusting God – as I was saying to a friend the other day – we have to trust God as there aren’t any other good options out there.. haha, but so true! 🙂

And I’m so glad He is faithful and sure…

O Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you; I will praise your name, for you have done wonderful things, plans formed of old, faithful and sure. Isaiah 25:1 

We’ll keep you posted!

  1. We aren’t on the same journey by ANY means at all but I do understand the crying over your child for their sake and wishing they were born ‘perfect’ & healthy and not having any cares! But we have to keep remembering that God is sovereign and He has a plan for our precious little ones! Keep trusting Him! You are a real inspiration to so many! 🙂
    And she is looking so well! It’s hard to imagine all that is going on in her little body.
    Continuing to pray for you all!
    You are loved!
