Maybe I Should Buy a Lottery Ticket?

Okay, so I am not the type to buy a lottery ticket, but given the odds of having a son that has febrile seizures is 6 out of 100 and the odds of having a baby with a true knot in her umbilical cord is 1 out of 250 and the chances that that girl would even survive is extremely slim. Put all those odds together and I'm sure it would be me that bought the winning ticket (or be struck by lightning?)!

Heidi had a good day today. She has been eliminating her waste and drinking her bottles. She does still need to work at keeping her temperature though. One thing that caught me by surprise was when a technician came into the room to take an ultra-sound of her heart to make sure that a hole had closed up. I didn't even know that there was a hole in her heart! She told me that many babies are born with a hole in their hearts but they usually close up after a few hours and hers hadn't yet. What? I'm thinking... Well, I'm almost glad that I didn't know because it just ended up one more thing that I didn't have to worry about. It was closed up today. Everything normal.

I left early today so that John could go in and feed her at her 6pm feeding. It was the first time he got to hold her and feed her. Yes, we have pix, and when I get them developed they will be here.

All we can say is that God is good all the time, all the time God is good!
