Update on Anna Claire...

Anna Claire continues to do very well. She is now breathing on her own and has been given regular tube feedings. It appears that her little digestive system is finally getting the hang of things, which is really good. She is a little jaundice, so she is spending time under the lights. Sarah said that as her digestive system begins working that her bilirubin number will begin coming down. I want to thank all of you that have been praying again. Anna Claire is nothing short of a miracle, and we have found ourselves in this incredible state of praise and thanksgiving. 

I will be leaving tomorrow morning to go visit Sarah, Mike and Anna Claire for a few days, and I can't hardly stand the wait to see her. I also can't wait to see my sister holding her daughter. Sarah completely amazes me and there is no one that I admire more. A year ago in September, Sarah and Mike lost twin daughters at 20 weeks. It was a road marked with sadness and grief, but they continued to believe and trust God with everything they had. Hope and a faith that didn't waiver is what they held onto with every ounce of their being. Anna Claire is a little girl who is very blessed to have parents like hers. 
I'm going to be taking a little break from posting regularly but will continue to give updates and share photos of Anna Claire. I am so thankful that I am able to go and spend time with Sarah, Mike, and Anna Claire in the weeks to come. When I am at home, I want to be spending it with my family. Thank you again for your prayers and for sharing our joy. I am blessed to have a community of friends like you!
