day 6

We have been in the hospital for 1 week now, and nothing has really changed. The last two days have been the hardest. It looked like Monday was the start of turning the corner, but Tuesday was a couple steps back. Thankfully,Nell and I are not going this path alone. It is rough at times, but God continues to give us the strength to keep moving forward every day.

One thing God has taught me so far is that often times; we feel that we trust God. We convince ourselves that the faith we have in our own abilities and the abilities of others is true faith in God, but honestly, it isn’t. It isn’t until we find ourselves in a position where there is nothing that we can do, that we truly put our faith in God. Over the last few days, the doctors have had no answers to Faith’s condition. Each day, they look at x-rays of her lungs, look at the results of her tests, and schedule more antibiotics, but nothing has changed. There is no explanation. The only option left is to put it in Gods hands.

Nell and I ask is that you all continue with the prayers. We have a long road ahead. We made a quick trip home to get a new set of clothes today. We got sick of cycling through the same 3 sets of clothes. The both of us know that things will get better here. Faith just has a very distinct way of taking her sweet time with everything. She did the same thing when she was in the NICU. We will keep you all posted as God keeps revealing His plan.
