“Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the hospital
Not a creature was strirring
Not even those in PJs High School Musical
The stockings were hung
By the bedside with care
In hope that St. Nicholas Soon would be there...”
The girls are fast asleep in the hospital's “family room” waiting for Santa who has already arrived in Ray's room. How wonderful that the hospital could arrange this in a lovely private room!
Though we would love to be home, with fluid already accumulating in Ray's abdomen, the doctors anticipate the need for another fluid drain on Friday. So it is better to be here to prevent any breathing problems if the fluid accumulates quickly.
After the fluid drain procedure on Friday we should be clear to head home, provided that nothing changes.
Ray's liver numbers are still dropping a little bit. We would love if they would come down to normal before we go.
We are so thankful to be together!!! Joy, joy, joy!
We pray God's healing hand on Ray and our whole family as we celebrate this Christmas.
We are so grateful for your prayers! We pray God's blessings on you this Christmas -- that it will be a Christmas you will long remember.
"For a child has been born for us,
a son given to us;
authority rests upon his shoulders;
and he is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." Is. 9
