i wanted to pass along that Claire’s brain procedure will be next week, thursday the 15th. we expect Claire will be in the hospital until saturday and one of us will be allowed to spend the night with her. please join us in prayer for Claire’s healing, for the doctors and nurses who will be caring for her and that we would not waiver in our hope that we will have encouraging answers to her brain conditions. also, i want you all to know that Adrian and i are leaning on each other, our marriage has never been stronger and we are so in love with our beautiful, strong baby girl. she doesn’t even know what an inspiration she already is to us. the huge hurdles she has faced in her few months on this earth are nothing short of amazing. in the midst of brain, kidney, reflux and feeding problems she still continues to smile, coo and wiggle with happiness. sure, she is not where other babies her age are developmentally but we are so proud of what she has accomplished and we know that there is much more to come.
