We have returned to see Lydia as a family today. The Lord has gone before us and prepared a way for the five of us to be together again. Last week, for the boys first visit, they moved Lydia to a private family visitation room in ICU. On 5C, she is in an observation ward with 4 other children, and allowed only 2 visitors at a time. We have planned to take turns seeing her. We were told we would get a private room in 5C sometime, but it might be awhile.
Last night they moved her to a private room! We are celebrating God's provision in this for our family.
She is sleeping right now, but earlier my brother reported that she was quite awake and responsive to their conversation: her cousins were joking and laughing, and she started to smile. When they laughed more, and "dialed up the laughter a bit" she began to belly laugh with them. How great is that? What amazing things are going on in her body and mind while she is cocooning?
Psalm 104:1 Praise the Lord, my soul.
Lord my god, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty.
