See Ya Later

Yup... that's what I heard today. Justus had a cardiology appointment today. While I knew it would probably be a good report, nothing prepared me for hearing that he was doing so well that we would not need to be back for another six months! I was so astonished. I started to cry. I could not believe that just shy of six weeks ago we had a very sick little boy on our hands, and now... well he is doing great! He is 95% on the Down Syndrome growth chart. (Yes, they have a seperate growth chart for DS) He also has gained nearly 2 pounds in one month! Can you believe it? Wow! Get this: She also stated that many children who need cardiac surgeries right now can't get them because the ICU's in the area are overloaded with Swine Flu - so there is no room. So God not only had the surgery itself in His hands but also the timing of the surgery was all taken care of. I am so thankful. I feel as if a ton of bricks has been lifted from my shoulders. I can't say it enough: Thank you Lord . . . thank you . . . thank you . . . thank you . . .

Hello, Luke talked to Phil yesterday and told us all of the wonderful news. The Lord is so good to us, and when we trust him and rest in His will, it always makes sense in the end. Praise the Lord that He is all knowing. Thanks for letting Him use your family as an example to us all, and having a joyful and thankful attitude you have no idea how much this blesses me. We have so many cross roads right now and God keeps bringing me back to the fact that His timming is perfect.

Love ya and can't wait to see evrybody next week. Mary

If you have any questions, feel free to ask away. I found your blog through the Hands. We attend the same church. I'm on FB too. I should confess I'm not expert either. Each child is unique. God loves variety doesn't He.
