"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." - Psalm 139:13-16

Meeting our Team Tomorrow

Like I said before, I know I am going to be busy so check when you can and I will update you when I can. Sorry it has been a few days since I have been able to get an update to you all. Life really doesn't slow down when you have more kids, it just crams more fun into your already fun cramped life. Anyway...

Abigail did her NAM last Thursday. Thursday was a hard day for Heather and I because it is hard to see your little one in discomfort. We got through it and we have been adjusting well. Abigail has also been adjusting well. Today is the first day that she is back up to eating around 2 ounces. When she first got her NAM it was like she had to re-learn how to eat, but she is doing well.

The prayer we need right now is the guidance to pick the right people for our Cleft Team at Children's. Tomorrow, Monday, we meet them all including the surgeons, social workers, etc. I am pretty excited to meet them all and hear what they have to say. We have already heard just about everything, so we are trying to set any expectations, but hoping they bring good news. Thanks to all that check up on us and I will post some pictures of Abby's NAM and of Abby as soon as I get an extra second.

A prayer for Abigail:

Angel of God,
Abigail's guardian dear,
To whom His love
Commits her here;
Ever this day (or night)
Be at her side,
To light and guard,
To rule and guide.

Dear Lord,
We pray for wisdom. Please make the best team and path to recovery for Abigail obvious. Please give Heather and Peter extra strength, love, compassion, and knowledge as they support Abigail through her journey.
Amen

I am so glad to see your posts. It is difficult to find the time, you are right...but I so appreciate them, as do so many others. So, thank you. I am glad the good ol' Namer is working for you. Eating is hard...but then she will get so used to it that she won't know what to do without it at some point. Unreal how they adapt. Reid would gag on his and throw up constantly. It was a hard few days that I remember so clearly. I hope the worst is behind you, and that Abigail will be thriving with her NAM. You will be amazed at the transformation. That is for certain. We pray that your appointment went well and you are at peace with the doctors and team that you will get to work with. We hope for a sense of overall relief and certainty as you head into this journey with your precious new family! We are covering you in prayer...and as always...hoping you are all well. Reid sends nice wet kisses Abigail's way....and we send a blanket of prayers.....Take care!

best of luck. This time will seem to go so slowly, but before you know it her first face will be slowly transformed and then forever gone and you will wonder where the time went.

Can't wait to see more pics. I'd love to post a picture of her on our blog if that's okay...just let me know!

The choice is yours, but I would check out the cleft team at Rose, too. Have you decided on a surgeon yet?
