Today has been yet another good, quiet day for Pierce. No new changes, only a slight increase on his feeds (he is now receiving his personal max- 5mL. here's to hoping we break that record tomorrow as they increase to 6mL's). Because Pierce was doing so well, Nik and I were able to worship with our church family today. We then snuck by the hospital for a quick visit before heading home for our Sunday nap (quite a tradition at our house).
As I sit here now, in the quietness, my heart is filled with joy and thankfulness. I am so grateful for this day. For an uneventful day, with no new issues to wrestle with. For a peaceful baby, who seems to be resting easy and growing more and more every day. For a wonderful NICU and staff- this team truly is amazing and their skill is beyond words.
Indeed this whole experience has made me treasure the most routine, mundane moments. I am overjoyed at the "boring" days we have, because I know that the opposite is usually because some hurdle has popped up in our way. I am thankful that God has performed many miracles to allow Pierce to see his one month birthday. And I'm grateful for each one of you, who have so encouraged and blessed us through your words, prayers and giving. Your dedication to following our story and your ceaseless prayers have been so humbling and most encouraging.
Much love to you all,
Lindsay, Nik and Pierce
