Day 130

Well it's official...Faith has been in the hospital for 130 days...and we are exhausted. Today it finally hit. It has been very draining and we've had enough! Faith is still not eating, and having a difficult time breathing. The next few weeks are crucial as we will have to make some big decisions regarding Faith. If she continuous to not eat she may need a g-tube (a feeding tube inserted into her stomach so we will feed her through her tummy at home). She is now 45 weeks gestation, way past the developmental milestone of beginning to nipple. Yes, this means another surgery (on the vent again) but may ultimately help her. We are going to wait a few more weeks before the decision is made- until then we are going to have FAITH that it will not come to that.
Thank you for keeping Faith in your prayers,
Brian and Jen

Dont get frustrated , though I can see how you could. God WILL take care of whatever matter needs to be taken care of. Maybe Faith just needs a little more time.
Here are some encouraging quotes that may help:

Deuteronomy 31:6
Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."

"When you feel like giving up, remember why you held on for so long in the first place."

"When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. "
~ Franklin D. Roosevelt
