Bela's daddy

Avery is pretty exhausted today so she asked me to give an update. To be honest this will be my second official post, but on the last one I only got one comment, so I am shooting for at least two. Bela had another good night last night and overall a pretty good day. We were optomistic that she would get her breathing tube out today but now we are being told it may be another couple of days. The plan is to slowly wean her off of the heart medicines and then she should be ready to come off the breathing tube. We just have to take it a day at a time because the thought of three to six months straight of this routine is overwelming.

Bela's little friend Eden is having her surgery tomorrow morning at 8:00 am so I would like to ask those of you following our story to also pray in her behalf. We know the anxiety they are going through and I know tomorrow especially, they can use the extra prayers. Let me tell you that I can feel it in my heart every time a prayer is offered in our behalf.

Bela has stole my heart and changed me for eternity. What a special little girl she is, and it is not easy to see her go through so much. Thanks again for all the support.

Tanner - you don't know me, and I don't know if your wife remembers me. I went through part of the special education dept at BYU with her. My maidden name is Courtney Wilkes, now Porter. I came across your blog through another friends. Your story is very inspiring and uplifting everyday. It's amazing the comfort one can feel through the gospel. I just wanted to let your family know that my testimony has been strenghtened through your family and that I think and pray for you often.
