Big Day!

Kirby has had a big day today! They were finally able to take out the ventilator this morning! YAY! She is so relieved and is doing great. The plan was to take it out 2 days ago but her blood gases weren't reflecting that she was not ready and had slowly gone down hill, so she had to wait until today. We prayed hard last night that her gases would improve and God intervened....they began to come up at her 9:00 blood draw. We have also been praying hard for the pacing of her heart/heart rhythm and they turned off the pace maker this morning and she is doing great! I can't begin to express how truly grateful we are for Kirby's life. We learn more each day of how sick she was and how little hope they had for her these last few weeks. She has truly pulled through some tough times only because of the prayers and our trust in Him. We know and continue to stand on God's promised of healing! Thank you Lord that Kirby is healed!

  2. Praise God!!! So glad Kirby is heading in a great direction! Prayers for this to continue!!! God is so faithful. :)
    In HIM,

  3. Your whole family comes to mind often. Our daughter, Miranda was a preemie and struggled. We knew she was a fighter, and obviously your precious one is too- with a unique destiny. There are no "ifs" in God's Plan. Take courage, you have many standing with you- hundreds that you have never met. :)

  4. I was just talking to Anita Schumaker about you guys. You are such an inspiration for our faith to grow. Thank you for sharing Kirby's life with us.
