Pierce is 9 days old now! Praise the Lord. :)
Overall, Pierce had a stable, good, quiet day. Probably a good thing because Nik and I shuffled between the hospital, the house, my doctors office and other errands that needed to be done today. We learned that I (Lindsay) have developed a slight infection at my incision site. Please pray that the medicine I've been given kicks in and that the Drs. won't have to do anything further. It's so hard to remember to rest and care for myself when I really just want to sit with Pierce all day. But the Lord has been gracious in allowing us to have peace about leaving Pierce with the nursing staff.
Continue to pray as Pierce will have another echo to determine the size/severity of the PDA. We were told today that if it is still wide open, which Drs. are assuming is the case, they will most likely start the medicine to try and close it.
There have been so many times today when I've been overwhelmed with so many conflicting thoughts and feelings- one minute joy and complete trust, the next anxiety and fear. Although I must say, I'm becoming increasingly aware that NOTHING in life is certain. Any sense of security that I had before April 12th, was false. Any sense of security that you have is false as well. The only thing that is secure and steadfast in this life is Christ. So tonight I am resting in His goodness and mercy and praying that He uses every ounce of our pain/struggle to bring glory to His name.
