Lately when it rains, it pours (which is literally happening in Colorado right now!) and today was another monsoon. Faith had an eye exam today- she needs another eye surgery. :( Lately we've been feeling like our prayers have gone unanswered but as you know His ways our not our ways- perhaps this is the reason why Faith has been staying on the ventilator. If she did get off of it last week, she would have to be reintubated for the surgery again- so maybe this is just saving us more heartbreak. It is very unfortunate Faith has to go through another surgery- but we'll tell you what- she's one tough cookie. The plan is to have the surgery within the next week. They are also keeping her on the vent for another week- if she pulls her tube out the tube is going right back in. Her airways need time to heal. It is sad seeing her on the ventilator- as she is getting bigger she looks so uncomfortable. They are giving her Tylenol and morphine when she needs it. Thank you for continue to lift up Faith in prayer- as the song goes we are going to "praise Him in this storm."
