We tried and tried to get Luke to open up to the possibility of a brother, but he never wavered. And he was right! It looks like we are having a little girl, and a heart healthy one at that!
All glory to God be given! "Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion." —Isaiah 30:18
That's how we feel right now. Overwhelmed with God's graciousness and overwhelmed with support and love from our friends and family. The staff at Northwest Children's Heart Care jumped with us in joy. Our friends cried tears of joy for us. Overwhelmed. And maybe a little wiped out:
I can't get over those four beautiful chambers we saw beating away on the screen. I can't get over how thankful we feel. A little girl!
And to add great news to great news, Luke's heart is holding strong and steady. Dr. S. continues to be pleased and in no hurry to send us to the Fontan. Luke is buying us time for more knowledge to be gained and Dr. Stefanelli is gladly taking that time. He doesn't want to make any changes to his medication and he doesn't need to see us again for six months. Today was a very good day. Thank you all for joining with us on this journey. Your faith and kind words lifted us up. Thank you.
