Thank you so much for all your intercession for our precious Abigail. It was so encouraging to see the power of prayer at work not only in explicit expression but also in the intricacies of the seemingly insignificant events of the day.
Susan had been worried that Abigail would be absolutely miserable because she had to go on a four hour fast. (She likes to eat, just like her daddy). However, the Pedialyte seemed to put Abigail in somewhat a drunken stupor. She was so happy throughout the morning, the car ride, and even up to the point that we had to hand her over to the doctors (Check out the photo above taken before we headed to the hospital). Evelyn was just as well behaved. Though it sounds small, this really was a huge blessing, and greatly reduced our stress level throughout the whole process. I sincerely attribute this to prayer.
The MRI went really well according to all accounts of the doctors and nurses. Huge answer to prayer. We were expecting to take her home right after, but because of her premature status, it is policy to keep her overnight to monitor. So, the Michael family will be staying over night at UNC. By grace we were able to change the Wednesday appointment to tomorrow to avoid a three day consecutive trip to Chapel Hill.
We will know more tomorrow after her appointments. It is still looking like surgery, but after such a solid day of answered prayer, we are very encouraged and have all the more confidence as we go forward.
Once again, we could not do this without prayer. The Lord’s Presence has been consistently felt, for which we are most grateful.
I will update this again tomorrow night once all the dust settles from appointments and travels.
Grace and Peace,
Graham, Susan, Evelyn, and Abigail
