My Sweet Girl Is Sleeping ..

I just got back to recovery a few minutes ago .... My angel is sleeping peacefully w/ a beautifully wrapped turban on her head ... She did wake for a minute very agitated, but went back to sleep ... We are waiting for her to wake up and recognize her mama, so we can go to our room ... I am exhausted and rejuvenated at the same time ... Exhausted from keeping her up till midnight last night, from sitting in waiting room all day and rejuvenated that the Father was ever present today ... He comforted this mama's heart and allowed me to rest in Him ...

I will come back after she wakes and we are in our room ... Keep praying ... The Lord hears you!

YIPPEE JESUS!!!!! Tell Jeremiah if he wants to talk to somebody about people staring, my guys would love to chat with him. I think they are about the same age!!! We get LOTS of stares, but we get a lot more people talking about our beautiful girl and they will do the same for Maggie!!! BTW, my friend Angie (I don't know if you remember me sharing about her, but her baby girl from China had LOTS of expanders over the last year). Anyway, she will be IT TOWN this week … I will tell her about Maggie. Maybe y'all could chat or something!

Oh, I"m so grateful to hear of answered prayers!!! I know you'll be resting tonight to the sound of that sweet baby's breaths! Hugs1

So glad the surgery went so well (I actually forgot until I went on the BBL blog and read Leigh Ann's post); but I am praying for her; there's no doubt that she'll recognize her mama

Precious friend, what a privilege to pray for our Maggie and for your family. Many prayers for you as I understand an aching heart of a mom watching your loved one endure hard things. What a blessing Miss Maggie did not ask for food and drink all day! WOW! Our Lord in action for all to see. May you rest as much as you are able and rest in knowing so many are covering you all when you are exhausted and emotionally drained. Love and hugs to each of you as I pray again this night even as I have prayed throughout this day for our great physician to hold Maggie and every aspect of her healing in His loving hands.

Adrienne said...

Gwen,

I am so happy to hear all is well with your little princess tonight and that God held you today and gave you the peace and comfort you needed. May He continue to lift all of you up and protect your sweet girl as she recovers. Sounds like she has a very sweet big brother watching out for her too :-).

Praying,
Adrienne

Thank you Father for the gift of Maggie. Thank you that before the beginning of time, you knew the Oatsvall's would be her family, they would love and protect her. You knew that at this perfectly appointed time you would assemble the perfect team to perform this surgery and begin this new journey towards healing. Thank you for guiding their hands, for allowing Maggie to go without food for the necessary amount of time and for allowing her to tell Gwen "luffa mama" when she woke up! We SEE your hand in this, in drawing others to you through the Oatsvall family and their unwavering faith and hope in you. Continue to protect Mags, allow her to recover quickly from this surgery and be comfortable. Give them all strength and peace to rest in You and your goodness and mercy through this process.

Thank You Jesus for answering our prayer..... Oh, Lord, please keep our precious Maggie wrapped in Your arms.... comfort her Father, may she not be frightened or angry and confused. May you fill her with Your peace that surpasses all understanding.... May she rest as her little body heals. And Abba Father, please may she not hurt.... take away any pain... We lift up her Mama to You. Thank You for your peace that falls upon her like a soft, warm, blanket.... help her to continue to rest in the shadow of Your wings....
Thank You God for this precious family.... for their walk with You, for their heart for You, for their wittness of You.....
Have Thine own way Lord, Have Thine own way......
In Jesus' Name,
Amen
