I haven't posted any updates in a while because life is busy with two kids. So here is the quick and dirty version. We spent 40 days (a biblical time of trial followed by blessing) in the NICU. Keatley now has two "normal" lungs. I was able to see her chest x-ray yesterday and her lungs look the same. The doctors were right ;) , you can't tell which side the hernia was on. She is growing normally and is developmentally on target.

Jonathan is doing well too. What a trouper to have been displaced for 2 months. He rebounded quickly and is settling well.

He loves Keatley to death...almost literally.

I try to spend my days focusing on my blessings. It is so easy to get sucked into this world, our culture, and the depravity that we live amongst.

"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you."

Phillipians 4: 4-9
