This morning the Dr's told me during their rounds that we are ready to go home and being discharged on Friday.
Nayeli was sleeping in my arms and Shane had just left to get us breakfast. I wanted to scream and I had tears of happiness. I can't believe that our little girl is coming home with us. June 4th was the day we found out about Nayeli being diagnosed with CDH. From that day on we prayed to God to give us the strength each day to get us through this CDH battle. Our prayers have been answered and we are so grateful and thankful. We know miracles DO HAPPEN. Holding our baby girl in our arms is the best feeling we have ever had. She is truly a miracle. When we thought there were days we couldn't go on we prayed and didn't give up faith in God.
The Dr's. said that the x-ray from yesterday came back and there was no fluid in Nayeli's lungs and there is a just a little fluid in her chest between her left lung and heart that they are not worried about (normal for the space in her chest). They told me that it looks like it's going away on it's own. I was so happy to hear that and couldn't wait to tell Shane. Nayeli's left eye cleared up and looks great today also. The Lord truly does make miracles happen.
I called up my dad who is staying at our house and watching our dogs and cat. I told him the good news and he is bringing Nayeli's car seat tommorow that we got for her from our baby shower gift money. We are so excited!
Nayeli had a good day today. She got fussy at around 5pm. We gave her a bath and Shane held her and that calmed her down. She is daddy's little girl!
God always finds a way to remind us of his strength and presence among us. As we have mentioned before, we believe the only one that could have blessed us with this miracle is the Lord. With that, this is one of our many favorite versus in the bible, and is a good description of how blessed we are and feel!
Give praise to the Lord and CALL on his name
Make known among the nations WHAT HE HAS DONE
Sing to him, sing praise to him
Tell of all his WONDERFUL ACTS
Glory in his holy name
let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice
Look to the Lord and his STRENGTH
Seek his face ALWAYS
Remember the WONDERS he has done,
and the judgements he pronounced....
He is the Lord our God
and his judgements are in all the earth.
