Little Miracles

The past couple of nights, Lydia's oxygen has been dropping ever-so-slightly - not dangerous at all, just enough to make the alarm on her monitor go off and wake us up multiple times a night. Yesterday, we were exhausted from a couple days of not enough sleep. Turns out the new parent not sleeping thing, compounded with the general emotional insanity that we're undergoing on a daily basis is not a great combo.

Last night before we went to bed, we prayed for Lydia as we always do. Really feeling the need for a good night's sleep, I snuck back into her room after she was asleep to say an extra prayer. It was something along these lines: "God, I know that you might never do a miracle and heal our girl. I'm still working on accepting that. In the meantime, would you please make a tiny miracle tonight and keep her oxygen up so that we can sleep?"


That God. He is awesome.

In seizure news, she's been doing better the past couple of days. Since she's slowly gaining weight, we've been able to up her meds a little and now that we're a week into that, the scary seizures have stopped. She slept peacefully much of today and though she still had a few seizures it was nothing super-scary.

So there you go. Two little miracles for us.

Hope you see some little miracles in your life today.
