PICU {Pediatric Intensive Care Unit}

The surgeon said, "It couldn't have gone better."

We are so thankful for the Lord guiding his hands.

PICU will be Ruby's home for quite awhile now.

The second we were allowed in, I went to her side and put my finger to her hand.

Ruby clasped my finger in record time and gripped tighter than I woud have thought possible...as if to say, "Okay mommy, look what they did when you let go.  I'm not letting you out of my sight!"

She is in a lot of pain and whimpers often.

They do not want her crying as the possibility of leaking blood increases with crying.

The situation is still very serious.  

Please don't stop praying!

29 Simply Sweet Words:

  1. Praying for Ruby and her mommy! She is such a gem.
