I just finished reading the update on Joanne's blog... and can't help but give God praise here for what He is doing! It wasn't long ago that this young mother was fighting for her life... it was touch and go, and all around the world we were praying hard for this young family. While it is a long recovery process, she has already come SO far and has amazed medical staff with her improvements. This is totally God's work... and I am so thankful! She has been answering questions with some simple sign language so has had some sort of communication with her family this way... but Monday, she answered a question verbally! Completely blew her family away with this, and it is all so exciting. Then yesterday, she fed herself ice chips with a spoon! So, as we ought to do with answered prayer, I am thanking our God for showing and proving His love and care for this family with these small but very exciting steps of recovery along the way. We know He has heard our prayers and we know He is working. I am praying Joanne's experience will not only bolster our own faith in our Almighty God, but will also speak to the medical team that is working with her day in and day out... that they might meet Joanne's Healer as their Saviour.
More later on "Baby Prep Progress"... according to my "What to Expect" app, there's 16 weeks and 4 days left until our due date... this little one is currently 23 weeks and 3 days along and is around 8.5 inches and 1.5 lbs. A comparison? Apparently that's the same size/weight as an ear of corn.... hopefully our little one is cuter than an ear of corn! ;)
