What? Good news? Really?

So where do I begin? The first news I got was about baby, so I'll start there.

About 10:30 I went back over to the Pacific Campus to check on baby Claire and they just happen to be having their daily "all doctors and nurses discuss each patient time" and they were just about to start on Claire. Coincidence? I think not. So they let me sit in and tried to decipher all their medical jargon, but I'm still too stupid to understand anything they're telling me. They covered a few things they were concerned about, mostly the breathing problems, but nothing was for sure a problem. Even if anything they covered did actually become a problem, they said most of it was just a simple fix or would go away with time. Looks like we have a very healthy baby girl! It'll still be awhile before we get to take her home, but the nurses down in the NICU are great and are taking great care of her.

The biggest shocker is how quickly Keri has recovered. She still has the NG tube and oxygen and she still is on some killer pain meds, but she's very awake and alert and able to carry on conversations. It's awesome! The last ICU doctor we talked to said that everything was looking great and she'll probably get to go back to the Pacific Campus tonight. I'm still unsure if she'll be able to meet Claire just cause Claire can't leave the NICU and I think Keri's still bed-ridden. Maybe they can get her into a wheelchair, I don't know.

I don't think I have any bad news this time around. Weird. Still a long road of recovery ahead, but God has showed us an extreme amount of Grace to us today. Extreme to us, not to Him.

I know Kenley doesn't know us very well and that you have lots of friends and family helping out, but if you get in a bind and really need some help with Kenley, even if it is last minute, or with meals or anything just give a call! Carol has our number.

Sorry I didn't offer sooner, but I hadn't checked in a few days. You and your family are in our prayers!!
