WAITING FOR ROUNDS

There is no word yet on surgery. So we continue to wait! It certainly is a blessing to be waiting in a room. Pretty much 24/7 Witt has praise music playing (Praise Baby CDs) or now he even sometimes watches the Praise Baby DVDs. I'm not sure Witt benefits as much as I do from the constant praise. Truly God does inhabit His praises! It's basically impossible to remain impatient or downcast with the music and the words of praise filling Witt's room. The doctors are still increasing (along with being fortified) Witt's feeds. He is not gaining back the weight like they would like him to. This is probably due to the fact that his heart is having to work a little harder so his body is burning more calories. Right now Witt is on a continuous feed instead of the way it was at home where every 3 hours he would be fed for 30 minutes. Obviously this is a much slower push of milk. The amount has been increased to a total intake of 120ml per 3 hours. He had been on 90ml...all of it is fortified to increase the calorie per ounce. The amount will probably be increased even a little more. Please continue to pray for God's perfect timing for surgery and for Witt to gain weight and be strengthened during this time!

Isaiah 40:31
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

I just got back in town and was surprised to see that Witt hasn't had his surgery yet. But, I am reminded, maybe the wait was needed. His strength needed to be renewed before the surgery. What a perfect lesson and reminder that God does have perfect timing. Praise Him! ~Mindy
