Final thoughts

This will be our last post for a couple of days. Raisa's parents have decided, based on medical advice, to release their precious baby to the Lord. They will spend her last days in a private room where they can finally hug and cuddle and rest with her before they have to say good-bye.

India's spot has been cultured and we await a final verdict on it. Aggressive antibiotics have been prescribed, just in case it is MRSA. Mom is going to have a discussion with her parents before we start giving it to her to make sure they really want to give them to her. Antibiotics can weaken the body and might make her more susceptible to any other MRSA germs she contacts. I'll let you know what was decided when this is all over.

Thank you for all the prayers. I truly cannot tell you all how grateful I've been, knowing that so many people have been before the throne of Grace on her behalf. And even though this is not the outcome we desired we can still rest in the knowledge that God is in control and His will be done.

I'm glad that Phadra and India are staying with you during this time.
Much love,
