This past week has been filled with all kinds of emotions & loads of anxiety, but one thing has shown true through all of it-our family has truly been blessed in more ways than one. Rachel is putting up a strong fight & progressing a little more each day. We're hopeful that each day will continue to bring more improvements, no matter how tiny, so that we can continue to pour our love on her in the comforts of her home sometime in the future. She still has a long road ahead of her, but she has already shown much more strength in just her few short days here on Earth than I think I have in my entire lifetime! Now I am by no means much of a poet, but occasionally I am inspired & this past week has done just that. Any professionals out there, please pardon the quality, but it does come straight from the heart :)

Blessings Abound

Blessed by one little baby's birth
Shown the power of prayer's real worth
Blessed by thoughts of people both near & far
Some don't even know who we are

Blessed by one little baby's might
We hold her dear to our hearts so tight
Hoping the power of our love she'll feel
And by God's grace she will be healed

Thanks to all of you who have been following along on this journey in blogland & in real life. Our family can never thank you enough for the support given & prayers said.

i have been getting updates from Beth Ochs. Although she doesn't know all the med terms and is just repeating :) I have been following. I feel that Rachel will be fine and in two years you will be chasing her around because of the terible twos. Medical Technology amazes me! Sending the prayers!

I think you are a good poet! That was very sweet. I keep Gus's poem on his dresser.

Many prayers still coming Rachel's way.
