I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look!
God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them.
They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.
‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes.
There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
~ Revelation 21: 2-4 (NIV)~
“Though my heart is torn, I will praise you in this storm.”
Connor man’s left lung pneumonia took a toll and he needed the ventilator to open it again. He was intubated this afternoon after giving bipap a valiant effort. Although Coye and I know this is a step backwards in terms of getting him home, it’s what’s needed for our sweetness to heal.
Caring for a child with such complex, life threatening needs is overwhelming, but our family leans not on our own understanding but HIS. Connor’s life has always and continues to be a wonderful mixture of blessed adventures that lead us to new places, new friends, and new lessons. Through our adventures we have had the pleasure of sharing our strong faith and belief that God is at the center of everything we do and is the reason we are where we are today.
We are hopeful he won’t have to be intubated long and will continue to rest and heal so he can be home soon with his sweet brothers, Annie, and momma and daddy. There’s truly no place like home, but when that’s not an option there’s no place like CHNOLA! 💙
Steve will be having carpal tunnel surgery today. Pray for the medical personnel involved in his care, his family as they wait, for the coming days of healing with limited use of his arm, and improvement so that his daily activities will not be permanently limited.
