God has given us two great days back to back. Liana has been looking so peaceful. We had prayed that she would get off the breathing machine that made her shake and this morning she had been taken off of it! Praise God! We also found out today that the valve in her heart had been completely closed. So it is possible she might be able to eat something tomorrow. She is making so much progress and we are so proud of her. God is doing an amazing work on her little body.
Tomorrow, possibly between 3 and 6 am, is the brain scan on Liana. We have told both of her nurses that we have prayed for a complete healing. We placed some bible verses on both Liana's and Adleigh's isolettes that speak of the healing that the power of Jesus brings them. We are excited to see what God is going to do tomorrow through this brain scan and we can't wait to tell the doctors that it is all because of Jesus that she is healed.
Adleigh still never ceases to amaze us. She went almost 24 hours on her smaller oxygen tube, but then needed a little more help so they put her on the bubble CPAP again. We know she will be back on the other one soon though. Her heart scan showed that she still had the hole in her heart, but that it had gotten smaller. She is going on another round of the medication to help close this, so in three days we believe that that hole will be completely gone. We have been able to hear Adleigh's little cry a few times and every time my heart leaps. It is so exciting to hear a sound come from your daughter's lungs.
Besides all the medical stuff, Wade and I began to really feel like parents today. I got to take Liana's temperature and change her diaper and Wade did the same for Adleigh. We were so nervous because we were changing our daughters diapers for the first time, but it was also with like 5 wires and tubes to deal with. But afterwards we couldn't stop smiling! God is being so good to us and we are so thankful that He has our two precious daughters in His hands.
