Other good news... I have been really worried about seeing Hope because the kids have been sick and I have had a sore throat. It has been about 2 weeks for the sore throat, so I finally went to an urgent care this morning. I was so scared to go in because I didn't want to hear that I've been sick and exposed the baby to something. The doctor said I was not sick or contagious at all. I had no fever, no strep, no swollen lymph nodes, and my throat didn't even look bad to him. He thinks it is either allergies (pollen counts have been high) or acid reflux. He said I was fine to visit the baby. Thanks again, Lord!
One last bit of news. We took some things in to put in/on Hope's box. One thing we put up was a picture Mary had drawn of me sitting in a chair reading Bible to Hope. The other thing we took in was a plaque I'd bought for Hope after hearing that one of the nurses had been calling my girl "Princess Hope". It says "With a tiara and the right cape I could rule the world." The next thing I want to take in is the verse Zeph. 3:17 written out.
"The Lord your God is with you,
he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
he will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing."
Thanks for continuing to pray. It works!
