Our Miracle



Do miracles ever make sense? Scientically, none of what we are seeing makes sense. Bela is progressing every day at a weeks rate. Today has been quite touching for me as I have discussed and meditated Bela's progression. I was told that somehow, Bela's name was put on the 1st Presidency's prayer roll, in addition to prayer rolls in a variety of Temples. Not to mention the hundreds if thousands that have fasted and prayed for Bela. We are witnessing a miracle.

The progress she has made is just not scientically possible. So where do I start.
The great day might have started when Avery was told she could try and NURSE. We were always told that Bela might not ever be able to nurse considering her anatomy and now at week two, she nursed TWICE today. I can only attempt to convey what a special moment that was for Avery. The great day only got better when we were told on three different occasions that they are starting to prepare for Bela's discharge. Seriously?? We planned on spending at a minimum of three months here after the 1st surgery and now we are talking about discharge. They don't know when, but they are talking about sometime next week. We are all dumbfounded and many of the doctors and nurses have a difficult time understanding how she is doing so well. If I didn't know as I mentioned earlier the faith that has been excersiced in her behalf, I would be equally confused. Without any hestitation, I know that Heavenly Father has responded to the pleading of so many. It has been humbling to see our little Bela endure so much in her short two weeks and now at exactly two weeks, we are talking about going home next week. Miracles!
We know that we still have a 2nd and more intense surgery to endure, but for now, we couldn't feel more blessed.
I don't know how we will ever express the appreciation we have for all of you who have prayed, fasted, concerned, cried, etc. in our behalf. THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
We are so blessed!

Wow! Nursing! I am so happy for you! I know how important that has been to Avery and I am just so glad Bela has gotten a chance to bond w/ Avery that way. Huge leap and I am so happy for you! It probably will help her in more ways than just getting the milk.
