April 18th

FIRST:
Thank EVERYONE FOR DONATING! I AM recieving it, but my bank account has to be verified through paypal and it takes a few days... then it will show up at the bottom of the blog how much has been raised! I really appreciate it... it will help her future beyond belief!!

Today, I completed ALLL my makeup homework for school that I had missed since I was put on bedrest, I did laundry... LOTS of it, and when I went to see Lillian tonight- SHE HAD NO TUBES IN HER MOUTH!! They moved the feeding tube from her mouth to her nose to help her digest a little better and now we can practice sucking more! I LOVE seeing her face, she was so awake tonight when I was there, I love it, we just sat and relaxed and talked about how she has to be a sweet little angel and come HOME on my birthday... (MAY 6th). Tomorrow (actually today, monday) she has been in the NICU for a month. I can hardly remember the first two weeks...
It is definately time for her to come home, now that she is more alert I hate her having to just lay there and look at hospital crud! 
This next week is going to be so interesting because so many new things will happen with us... she will get her PICC line out tomorrow, and start taking her morphine by mouth, which she is almost done with anyways!
She is having her lungs and spleen looked at tomorrow as well- just to make sure things are going okay...
Other than that, the therapist will practice alot more with her on sucking and taking a bottle... and I should get an update for our goals for the week tomorrow!
I have lots of new pictures uploaded if you visit the FLICKR stream at the bottom right...
Thank you all, we are so blessed and couldnt feel more loved...

I have said a prayer for you and Lilly since the day she was born. I keep waiting for her to leave the hospital. The strength that both of you have is not of this world and I wish nothing but the best. Love you both.

Hello Lauren, this is Amanda's mom, Melinda. I wanted to let you know that I have been praying for you and precious Lilli.

Psalm 91 in the Bible is one of my favorite psalms. The first verse is sometimes referred to as the "911 call" or promise. It says, "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty."

Verse 4 says, "He will cover you with his feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart."

And finally verse 11 says, "For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways."

I will be claiming these verses with you, and I pray that you may rest in His arms.

Yay for more good news. What a little fighter she is! And congrats on getting so much done! Good to do all that laundry now b/c once she is home, forget about it! Ha! Ha! And won't that be nice to have piles of laundry, but your babe in your arms?

Yay for a happy day! Keep it up! And keep telling her her goals. She is obviously smart and listens well! :)
