Praising God in the storm
So today had just been such a rough day. There are so many crazy hard things going on. And unfortunately this morning I let myself get caught up in the unknown and the fear of the unknown, in this situation and in others. I took my focus off of the One who brings peace. I started focusing on the world and all that is going wrong right now. And then God gently reminded me that He is walking this road with me, and that I don't need to fear. God has this ALL UNDER CONTROL. I don't know where that leads us here on earth, but I know where it leads us for eternity. That being said here is the run down of the day: PICU and IV teams unsuccessful with IV starts. So then the plan quickly moved to a special type of NG tube that goes beyond the stomach, and they would be dumping all the nutrients and things he is lacking there. But how awful would that have been for him. I am so thankful to God that He had a nursing instructur here who had a NICU background, and she got special permission to come start his line. He doesn't love it, AT ALL. But it is in and hopefully he will start getting hydrated and his lab values will be better.
