Wow, February 1st?!
One month ago today we were here at St. Vincent’s NICU waiting to be transferred to the PICU for Beckett’s first surgery. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but this has gotta be the fastest AND slowest month of our lives. I cannot believe everything my son has gone through in such a short period of time (and at such a young age).
We began this morning with a visit from some good friends to find Beckett being the All-Star he is. He had a great night, his stats look great, and all the Doctor had to say was a slight tweak in some of his medication. Their plan is for yet another uneventful/quiet day….in which we are certainly always in favor of.
I was reminded of a great passage this morning a good friend shared with me, Exodus 14:14, which says: ‘The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still.’ I think I stumbled upon this passage early on in this journey, but it’s a great reminder of what I mentioned a few days ago….that we must rely on The Lord to be our strength, ‘for our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.’ (Ephesians 6:12)
It’s gonna be a great day and a quiet weekend of healing and a mountain of love poured all over my son. I’m such a proud Dad (as I know I keep saying, but I can’t help it), and am excited to battle this next chapter right alongside of Beckett and his Mom, and welcome all who dare to continue this journey with us!
