Hooray, our little boy made it for his 5 day birthday! Our nurse encouraged us to touch him (even though it's technically not allowed). She said you'd be amazed at how he will relax when he feels his parents touch. So we touched him. And he did relax. He looked so peaceful as we prayed for him and told him that Jesus was holding him.
Here are a few pictures from the celebration. Our friend Isaac brought us a candle to celebrate!
Not only did he make it, he is doing well tonight. Resting comfortably. He has a WONDERFUL (and that is an understatement. all of his nurses have been truly amazing.) nurse tonight, Rebecca. Pray that she will be granted wisdom as she cares for our little one. And pray that God continues to give Pierce a restful night. Nik and I have been filled with hope and peace by the Holy Spirit today. We know this is supernatural and not of us. But God is at work in our hearts and we pray yours as well. Nik and I pray that as a result of this trial, many will come to know Jesus in the way in which we have been blessed.
We love you all. Keep praying.
