More to be thankful for.

When I wrote the previous post about Thanksgiving, I had no idea that in a few days we would have an even greater reason to be thankful.

Friday evening Laney developed a cough and fever, by Saturday morning she was a very sick little girl. After a quick trip to the pediatrician we were sent over to the ER where things turned serious very quickly.
She was diagnosed with pneumonia and bronchiolitis, put on oxygen, and sent to the PICU. It was a scary situation that God mercifully turned around. After a day and night in the PICU, Laney was taken off the oxygen and moved to a regular floor. We came home yesterday afternoon.
Here she is tonight playing with Grandmama.
Every time I look at this little girl I am overcome with thankfulness that she's here, home with us, and healthy.
The Lord your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
he will quiet you by his love,
he will exult over you with loud singing.
Zephaniah 3:17
