Today we went to see the doctor for another check up and great news... Lyric broke the 8lb mark & now weighs 8.2lb!! YAY!! She is in the 1.17 percentile... so she is on the charts!! The doctor said that we are entering the stage where it will start to get a little harder with Lyric because her body will start to feel more of the stress from the defect. So please pray that her little body handle this stage good.
We were talking to the doctor today and we were telling her that we had to go to the ER on Tuesday because Lyric wasn't eating well and since she is on a diuretic (Lasix) we wanted to make she wasn't getting dehydrated. All the doctors & nurses there wanted to hear Lyric's murmur because they said it was so impressive... not exactly what I was wanting Lyric to be known for but anyways... Lyric's doctor said the impressive part is that the murmur isn't from Lyric's heart defect! The reason this is so amazing is that had the doctor not heard the murmur she would have never order the chest x ray to find that her heart was enlarged... then the doctor never would have sent us to have an EKG & Echo done... then we would not have found the hole. God is so good even with the delivery of hard news He is protecting and preparing the way. They really don't know why Lyric even has a murmur!
In God is my salvation and my glory;
The rock of my strength,
and my refuge, is in God.
Trust in Him at all times, you people;
Pour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us. Selah
God is good... knowing the plans He has for us is for our good is the most reassuring thing! We have seen God's hand so much and we are thankful that we can lay all our cares upon him! Thank you for the prayers!
