We are finally adjusting to life and routine in the NICU. We still have breakdown moments, but to look around, we have to confess that we truly are blessed. Its not too fun going back and forth to the hospital to see your baby, but we are soooo blessed to be living only a few houses down from the hospital. We couldn't get any closer so although we'd rather Mr. Boy be in the bedroom next to us, he is only a short walk away and getting the best care possible in one of the best NICU's in the country. We never really understood all the reasons God called us to South Dakota, but a few more obvious reasons have now come to light. The Lord positioned us directly beside the best Hospital for all of Mr. Boy's issues. They have every kind of unique specialist we need (which is not normal to have) and they even just got a Urologist a few months ago and we were told if he wasn't at Sanford Hospital, they would have to send Mr. Boy to another state for care. Also, we are surrounded by an amazing support system and insanely incredible church family. The Lord knew what he was doing when he sent us here to this remote state a year and a half ago. So thank you to everyone who has allowed the Lord to work through them to bless us! Every time we feel weak or want to wallow in self-pity, we are reminded of how the Lord is orchestrating everything for His glory and for our and Mr. Boy's best interest...even when we don't feel like it. He's been orchestrating it all from the very beginning. And thats comforting even in the most uncertain and scariest situations.
