In my quiet time today, I studied Psalm 27:14 "Wait on the Lord, be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord." I prayed "Help me Lord to get off of my clock and on your time." Last night, we were getting worried about things that we couldn't control...the length of time we would spend in the NICU, etc. This verse just reminded me to "wait". Today when we walked in to the NICU, Ethan was breathing well and seemed very relaxed. He is still on an oxygen cannula but otherwise breathing on his own - PRAISE THE LORD! We both got to hold and rock him today - he is already spoiled - he loved it and was very content in our arms!! Ethan also had his first bottles of breast milk today, and the nurses let Bonnie and I help feed him. Overall things are going very well, and Bonnie and I are giving God all the glory. Please pray that Ethan continues to breathe well on his own in order to wean from the oxygen cannula and improves on his feedings. We are excited to get in there tomorrow and hold him some more!!
