You Mean?!?!

Here we are, just a few days short of Poppy’s 4 month birthday, and plans have been made for us to leave this place…this place that Poppy has called home for her entire life. These plans are set for today, Friday July 5th, as long as Poppy behaves herself. She will get an echo this morning to check for rejection if that looks good, they will pull her picc line….this is HUGE because Poppy has never not had a line. Since the minute after she was born she has had a line. I can finally put pants and bloomers and shorts on my girl!! Seemingly shallow, but it’s the things you take for granted when you have a healthy kiddo- things I never thought twice about with Crosby are now great milestones for Poppy. The home care services Poppy will be getting are things I had never really thought about existing-it’s all pretty amazing.

Still it’s crazy-has this day really come? You mean we really get to take our girl home?!?!?! So many days spent wondering if Poppy would get to see the beauty of God’s creation outside the hospital walls…and here we are….wow. 120 days and we are here. It’s hard to imagine that Poppy’s journey is really just beginning…

It’s like it hasn’t fully hit us yet, even though we are beyond ready to bring our baby girl home!!! We are so looking forward to functioning as a family again!!! Praise The Lord for the many miracles He has shown us through our dear girl. Humbling and amazing…words really don’t even cover all that it is and means and will mean down the road.

And it’s all You Lord!! You have orchestrated everything in our lives according to Your perfect will. You have provided all we need: superb medical care, a place to live, the lovely people we have met during all of this that have blessed us in so many ways, prayers and love from so so many-it is grace- it is Divine- it is all You.

Praying praying that today is the day…

  6. Oh Man, I remember that day! My daughter received a liver transplant when she was 6 weeks old and we took her home on her 4 month birthday. It can be scary and overwhelming, but it will be filled with love, appreciation, and prayer. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you to aid in the ease of this transition. My prayers are with you.
