I can't believe I forgot to post this update...How could I forget to let my loyal readers--all two of you--know the latest on Sophie?
Monday, Dec 24, Sheynah went to the hospital to feed Sophie and she did so much better holding down breast milk. About an hour after Sheynah went home, the hospital called her. "We're getting ready to release your daughter...come and get her."
Sheynah was so flustered, she didn't know what to do! She called Mike and he was like, "Um, honey, go get her?" So of course she did, and little Sophie was home on Christmas Eve!
I would have been thrilled for Sheynah if she had been able to hold Sophie by Christmas...I never would have guessed she would be home by Christmas.
My sister and her husband (Oma and Grandpa--my sister is now Oma since she's Sheyna's step-mom) flew down to see her this past weekend and all Oma could talk about was how tiny Sophie is...of course, Oma's three children were all over 8lbs, so naturally a 5-pounder looks tiny.
So if anyone doubts the power of prayer, have them come talk to me. So many prayers went up through various prayer groups I'm connected with, God just had to let this precious child go home to her family in time for His own Son's birthday.
Had I posted this when it happened, I'd close by wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, so now I can only wish you a happy January!
