We love our girls

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.

great progress, Ferris. I can't wait to hear the results! 3-6am your time is like 12-3am our time and I'm afraid I'm going to be up all night checking your blog:) I'm so excited for little Liana, to see what God has in store for her today. Today I was telling a friend to pray for ya'll & I was reminded of our own situation with Glory - we were told to basically decide how we wanted to handle her burial and now she is perfectly, perfectly fine. I trust medicine a lot, but it is so wise to trust the Lord more. Praying for ya'll.

I'll be praying late into the night/early in the AM for Liana! God is going to shake that hospital with His healing hands.

This is amazing news and I am overwhelmed with thankfulness to the Lord. The pictures from the past two days bring tears to my eyes, but also fill my heart with hope and love for these little girls. I am so happy that you have been able to hold Adleigh and care for both of them like real parents. It brings everything to a entire new level. God is great and He can make it even better! I can't wait to hear about the scan today and see how lives will be changed through your faithfulness and trust in the Lord.
God bless,
