Sunday

Sweet Harper continues to improve day by day!!! She is now at 39% oxygen!!! And they are taking her Nitric oxide down as well as most of her other drugs. Hopefully by this time next week we will be looking into her eyes and holding her!!!!

Scott went home today to take some stuff and get our mail and get his work computer so he can work from here next week. We are SO thankful because his work has been SO good to him and not only have allowed him to be off as long as he needs to but gave us a generous gift. We are both blessed to work for great companies. He will be back soon. Mom and I went to Wal-Mart this morning to do some shopping. I was in such a hurry to get over here last week that I only brought about 3 outfits with me and we are in store for an ice storm so I thought I could get a few sweaters at Wal-Mart. (They have a new line called Max that is SO CUTE!!!!!)
This sweet couple, Jennifer and Justin, came to see me today and she made me the cutest diaper cake EVER! I love it so much! (They are pictured below at the top)
We didn't expect any visitors today but we still had several - we are so thankful for each of you who came to see us today!


I love this song so much. This is something I listened to over and over and over as I waited for God to give me a baby. Some of you wonder how I can have a positive attitude or joy in the midst of a trial? Listen to this song - God is each of the things listed in this song to me. He is my strong tower, my strength, my fortress, my deliver, my shelter, my very present help in time of need.

Please pray for me - I'm getting a cold and don't feel real well. I'm going to take some medicine and go to bed early. I'm very healthy and never get sick but I'm probably a little rundown from the pace we've been keeping for the last 10 days. I CAN'T be sick - or I can't visit Harper and that would be really hard! Pray I wake up feeling much better so I can whisper in her ear all day tomorrow about how pretty she is!

Oooo.I can't believe I'm so near the top of the comment list - that never happens.
So glad to hear that her oxygen is lower. She's a real trooper.
We can't wait to see those beautiful eyes either.
Take care of yourself - hopefully you won't be sick.

Stay strong! I will continue to keep you in my prayers!
She is gorgeous:0)

Leah said...

I will pray as I do each day ... especially for your health.
Our little guy weighed 10 lbs., 2 oz. Sweet Harper reminds me of him when he was a newborn. She is so, so pretty!a

Stephanie said...

Forgot to tell you that I am so singing that song with you! Love it.

ClintandGina said...

Wow! 39%.......Harper is such a little fighter. We continue to praise God for the healing He has already done and pray the He continues to give sweet Harper the strength to get better. We can't wait to see pictures with her eyes open. She is such a beautiful baby!

Prayers for mommy to feel better soon.

As you sleep tonight, I will pray for your health. I know you don't want to miss a day with Harper! She is incredibly special! (Thanks for being my Facebook friend!)

Joyce said...

I will pray for you to wake refreshed in the morning!

I just love to see Harper laying on her tummy!

Take care of yourself, sweet lady! Don't want Harper to miss any Momma time!

Gina said...

Oh Kelly, don't get sick.......take some Cold-eez..its zinc and it works.
Praying....
oh...and Harper is even more gorgeous today if that's possible.

Liz and Garth said...

In looking at Harper's pictures I think she is looking better and better! Look at her pink skin! That is definitely a good sign. Take care of yourself and don't get a cold! Rest up!! You're in my thoughts.

Beth said...

Oh, Kelly. Get some meds in you STAT! You have to be able to be with Harper. Surely there's a doctor in there who knows how to treat "Mommies." Drink lots of water and wash your hands a lot. Sending good thoughts your way.

elainaann said...

She is gorgeous. I'm so glad she is getting better. Praying that you feel much better tomorrow!!!

Gracie Beth said...

I will most definitely say a prayer for you so you will be able to visit Ms. Harper tomorrow

Cali Girl said...

she's such a pretty baby!

kate said...

pump vitamin C into your self....hot shower, hot tea, and rest. Harper needs you well - even if that means a day in bed to rest up...she'll soon be home in her princess nursery.

back from NYC...i checked on you all throughout my trip...so good to hear the princess is getting closer to your arms! loves, kate

wife.mom.nurse said...

I am praying for you and baby Harper.

If you do get a cold I highly recommed taking Mucinex Extended Release to help feel faster much sooner! It won't combat the virus , but it will help the congestion go away much faster and keep it moving out of the chest!

Robin said...

Harper is so pretty and pink! She looks like she is feeling much better. I am so sorry that you aren't feeling well. Get some well deserved rest and know that you will be in my daily prayers. May God continue to bless you and your sweet family!

Bethany said...

I'm so happy to hear her levels are going down, down, down! I remember that so much from when my daughter was in the NICU.

I love the name Harper too!

The Williams' said...

Kelly, I read your blog every day, and I even have my husband addicted to checking on Harper. I come home and immediately get on the computer to see about her. I am so happy she is doing so much better, and I hope she continues to do so. You and your family are in our prayers!

Lea Ann said...

Praying that you feel better by tomorrow. Rest well. So glad to hear that Harper is getting better day by day. God is GOOD!

jill said...

Harper is so adorable. I am thrilled that the nitric and amazing number of healing prayers have been doing wonders for her!!! My husband's research is in nitric oxide support in the newborn with pulmonary disease. She looks so PINK PINK PINK (YAY for the O2 levels!!!), don't you think? I noticed that PINK immediately!!

God is an AWESOME God!!!!!!!!!! Please take care of yourself. I will pray that you get the much needed rest you deserve. HUGS!

I have been praying that you would get some good rest. Will pray for a good nights sleep and that you wake up feeling great tomorrow! She is so beautiful. My first born was 9lbs 14 oz and seeing Harper it brings back so many wonderful memories from almost 14 years ago. My next 2 babies were smaller than my first! Still praying in Florida!

She is just so beautiful! You are such an inspiration to everyone who reads this blog. I enjoyed getting to visit with you and your sweet family on Friday. Take care of yourself and get some much needed rest tonight! God is so good!

BrandeeHancock said...

I'm praying that you feel better when you wake up tomorrow! She is sooooo beautiful and I think it's hilarious that her diaper is on backwards since she is on her tummy. much easier to change that way :o) Take care!!

Katy said...

Kelly you are in our prayers. We are so thankful for all of Harpers progress. She will continue to be in our thoughts and in our prayers. Your smile is so contagious. You look absolutely great even through all of the trials that you have been faced with. Harper is such a beautiful baby and she is so lucky to have you in her life. Stay strong!!!

I can't help but smile every time I read a post about Harper's improvement. I continue to pray for you entire family but I will pray specifically for you to be well. God Bless.

Becky said...

Kelly - It sounds like things continue to go well for Harper. What an answer to prayer. Yep. You better throw off that cold. The dry air in the NICU always made me cough. I always had to make sure I had something to suck.

There was a baby named Iris in an isolette between two of the boys. Her family was almost always there. I found out much later (there was an article in the newspaper about her because she was such a preemie) that she was a twin, but her sibling did not survive. It made me feel so bad. We were rejoicing over our three and how sorrowful they must have been. I regret so much not reaching out in some way but everyone in the NICU pretty much came and went and kept to themselves - wrapped up in their own dramas, so to speak.

Rest well Kelly.

Mama Lily said...

Dear Kelli

My first baby was in the hospital for awhile--with the same problem. I started not feeling well. It ended up that I had a breast infection. I had been pumping for him, but it's not the same as nursing. I don't know if you are pumping milk or not, but it is a thought. Since I was a first time mom I had no idea it could be that. I had flu like symptoms and felt horrible. The worst thing was not seeing my baby for a couple days.

blessings to you

Praying for Harper to continue to do better each day and praying for you to feel MUCH better tomorrow.

I'm so delighted to hear more praise worthy news about Harper! Hope you can get some rest & fight off that cold. I sure hope the weatherman is wrong about the icy weather we're supposed to get in the next few days. Stay warm & safe! My prayers continue.

Joni said...

She is just beautiful! Can't wait until next week and you can see her beautiful eyes!! I will be praying for you tonight and as always little Miss Harper, too!

shack said...

Way to go Harper!! The numbers keep going down, and her oxygen is going up-yeah!! God is so Good and using this miracle child to perform miracles in others lives...it gives me goosebumps. Your in my prayers, especially tonight, for healing and feeling "better" tomorrow. Everyone has said it already, but drink lots of warm fluids (helps with sore throat/sinus congestion), and take VitC, Lysine and B12. Hope you sleep well and start the week off feeling great!

Kelly,

I will definitely send extra prayers your way! I don't want you to be sick at all...so I will just pray that God makes you better! :) And, YAY, for Harper! I can't wait until you get to hold her and see her beautiful eyes!! We're looking forward to pictures of that, as well!!

Take good care of yourself and know that you, Scott and Harper are loved sooooooo much!

Love you,
Jess :)

Ter said...

I hope you don't get sick... I had a cold and had to miss two days while my husband was in the hospital. That's 2 less days I got to spend with him before he died, and I feel so guilty about that even though I know that it's not my fault or anything, it still hurts to know I wasn't there for him on those two days.

K said...

Praying for you and your family...take care of yourself and love and hugs from Bama!

Anne said...

I have been praying for you every day when I look at your blog. I just found your blog about 2 weeks ago.

I am hoping that when you get through this with Harper, you are going to be a stay at home mom to this darling girl!

Anonymous said...

You look absolutely amazing!! You remember to stay strong. It's ok to have those momemets and meltdowns they are going to come but then pick yourself up and trust in god he will carry you through. I've been where you are right now take care of yourself.....remember that...Harper needs a healthy mommy :) Love to your entire family and continue with your strength and love!!!!

Kappa Prep said...

Harper is looking so wonderful! I especially love the pink bow that has replaced the purple one! What wonderful jobs you and Scott have, that is such a blessing! I am still praying for you all and I am SO excited for the day you get to hold your sweet, baby girl! I think so many of us will be just as excited as you Kelly! Take it easy and fight that cold!

Amanda said...

Kelly, looking forward to seeing pictures of Harper nestled in your arms with her beautiful eyes open gazing up at you!! The day will come and soon!!! You have been keeping an amazingly fact and stressful pace. I will be praying that you kick this cold quickily. A piece of advice if you are still feeling under the weather tomorrow because I know it would be EXTREMELY hard to not visit your daughter for a day, but also just how bad it would be for Harper to catch anything from you- send someone back out to Walmart and get a digital recorder. March of Dimes gave us one when our daughter was in the NICU. It was so nice to be able to let the nurses play it so Cadence could hear our voices singing, reading stories and talking to her when we weren't able to be at the NICU with her. That way she could still her her mommy's loving voice whispering about how pretty she is and you can be getting the rest you need. But hopefully you'll be feeling fine tomorrow! Praying!

Jennifer said...

God is so good!

Hope you feel better soon, take care of yourself!! God bless!

WillowLakeScents said...

WooHoo ~ 39% is AWESOME !! I pray for all of you every day but extra prayers will be said tonight that you don't get sick !! Won't be long till you're holding that sweet baby girl in your loving arms!!

Gina Dayton said...

Hi Kelly,
I've used your verse of Ephesians 3:20 recently in my life and spread it my friends who are going through difficulties

Our sweet Jesus has many plans for this sweet girl. I can't imagine how hard this is.

My son was in a body cast with a broken femur when I was 8 months pregnant. He was estimated to be there for 6 weeks. He was. I thought we'd never see the end. It was rough.

You're going to look back at this and marvel at the strength you had and the magnitude of friendships that surround you.

Thank you so much for letting me to "peek" in your life. I'm honored.

Kelly, I don't know you but just wanted to let you know I am praying for you and Harper, and the rest of your family. Harper is precious! And so big! I have an 8 month old baby boy.

Kelly, I just wanted to tell you that you are truly passionate and dedicated to all your blog friends and I know we all appreciate you keeping us all informed of sweet Harper's recovery. You are with your sweet baby, greeting guests, and trying to stay well yourself. You are truly a strong and Godly woman and I commend you.
Take time to get some good rest and I will continue to pray for sweet Harper and mom and dad.

So sorry to hear you aren't feeling well. You should try taking some phytobiotic. It's a natural antibiotic and works GREAT! Plus you can take it in addition to any over-the-counter stuff. Hope you feel better ASAP!

Momofgirls said...

FORCE YOURSELF to get some sleep and eat some good food, plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables....you MUST be well to hold your angel!!

Beth said...

Kelly, Great news for Harper! Take some Airborne (it always works for me) I just take it 3 times a day for a couple of days and stay super hydrated and I have stayed well. Make sure you are resting and sleeping when you can...so your body can heal from your surgery.

Stacia said...

I will be praying for you to feel much better! Take care and great job Harper!

elliotts said...

Remember to take care of yourself...I hope an early night makes you feel better tomorrow.

We are having some friends over for dinner tomorrow night to celebrate Chinese New Year. We are adopting from China and just starting the journey...I made your Butterfinger cake for dessert...it looks delicious!

We continue to keep you and your family in our thoughts. Even my husband asks daily how baby Harper is doing...

Seeing all your visitors is amazing...you and your family must be so blessed. Stay strong.

Heather said...

Kelly, I am sure that the Lord must smile down on you all the time, your faith is never shaken and I think you are an incredible example of what a christian looks like. You praise Him in the good times and you praise Him in the bad times. Lifting you up tonight and praying that you won't get sick, so Harper will know that mama is close by. Praying for her too and can't wait to hear how she is tomorrow! Blessings and she looks so beautiful and what a great sweater you are wearing!!

Lisa said...

So happy to hear that she is still improving. I love hearing that news!! I am sorry to hear that you aren't feeling very good and will keep you in my continued prayers. I am sure you don't want to miss out on holding that sweet baby girl of yours. Get some rest... you have been running ragged for days.

Take Care,

Celeste said...

I just wanted to let you know that I have been praying for you beautiful baby. You don't know me but I stumbled (but according to God's plans there are no accidental stumblings) upon your blog a few days ago. My heart just swelled reading your blog and just how courageous you are. Little Harper has stolen my heart and I'll surely will continue to pray for her and pray that Jesus will give you and your husband strength and comfort. I believe He is with you every step of the way and that He is cheering Harper on, whispering to her words of goodness. Thank you so much for sharing with strangers like me. Seeing God in your life so vividly has encouraged me in my walk.

Because He is good,
celeste

Kimberly said...

Praying for healing for both of you girls tonight!

Katie said...

Kelly, she looks so darling when she is laying on her tummy! BLESS HER HEART!!!! I'm so excited that they are weaning all her meds and her oxygen.

I always find cute stuff for Amelia at Wal-Mart. I got her these SWEET birdie gauchos there the other day (Garanimals brand), and even though we did a "fashion show" for her Daddy when we got home, it's still obviously too cold to wear them yet. I'm ready for summer! We'll be praying for y'all tonight & for you to not get sick! Rest up and take care, Kelly!

Betsy said...

Oh no! You definitely can't get sick. Take some zinc or Zicam!! That really helps! I will pray that you will wake up tomorrow feeling much better.

I love this song, too. It is one of my very favorites. What a great song to cling to right now!

Kelly, make sure you are taking care of yourself. Everyone will understand if you need to rest. New mommies need to take it easy and recover from all they have been through...especially everything YOU have been dealing with!!

Love you,
Betsy

So happy to hear that they lowered her oxygen!! I really do hope that this time next week you and Scott are able to hold Harper. I know you are so excited about finally getting to hold her! I've noticed that you have mentioned Walmart a lot in your previous blogs, and also mentioned going to a Shareholders meeting at one time. Do you work for Walmart? Just wondering. :) Anyway I hope she continues to make great progress! Praise God she's getting better!! Oh and you always look so amazing in your photos!

You need to get yourself some Emergen-C to boost your immune system. It is only natural after giving birth and all that you have been through for your natural defenses to be down.

We suffered from infertility as well and now have twins.

Precious Kelly,
I have not been able to check in with you all weekend and could not wait to see what God has been doing in the NICU these past couple of days! What a blessing-Harper is almost breathing on her own! God's mighty hand is still at work in this situation and I look forward to the day you can hold your sweet baby! She is absolutely precious! We are continually praying throughout each and every day! How awesome to have your mom with you and to have such sweet friends! Have a restful night sleep....Love you, in Jesus name! Danielle

Bailey's Leaf said...

Walmart sells Oscillococinum. We take that. It has no side effects with anything and should be fine for you to take. It pulled Hubs out of a funk last night.

We don't want you to miss time with Harper, but slow down and take a little time. Baby girl is being well cared for and if you need to kick back for just a moment and relax a bit, there isn't anything that says you should feel guilty about that. Baby girl (and everyone else) just wants you to be well. You haven't been able to stop since you've had her!

Take care of you!

Tasha said...

Still praying for your little sweetie.

You mentioned that you are not feeling well. Get some Emergen-C at Walmart or a drug store. It is vitamin C that you put in water. You can drink it several times a day. Especially when you feel run down.

Hope this helps. I'll be checking back in for more good news.

Take care,
Tasha

I can't wait for the moment when you get to hold that precious baby and look in her eyes. She is so gorgeous!

I'll be praying that you'll feel better tomorrow. Maybe a good night's sleep is all you need. You are probably just exhausted.

Mandy said...

I follow your blog daily. Praying for Harper and for you! Get some vitamins and healthy juices with antioxidants and all those good things!
I know what's it's like to have a baby in the hospital on the vent. My son has been on the vent three times and spent over 40+ days in the hospital from 7wks to 4 months old. It can totally run you down!

Anonymous said...

Kelly,

Like so many across God's wonderful world I don't know you; but you and your sweet family have become such a very important part of my day. I found your blog a few weeks before you were due. My 2nd son was one on the 18th and I as you anticipated the days until Harper's birth I found myself reminising about that wonderful time in our lives. My two boys have never had more than the sniffles and I can not even begin to imagine what you are experiencing. Like everyone else, I find your strength and faith so very amazing. Reading your blog has become part of my devotion. It's so uplifting and comforting and hopeful! I think and pray constantly for you all.
I met my sister in law for lunch today and as we were visiting I said to her "There is a girl who was at OBU whose baby and before I could even finish she said 'are you talking about Harper?-I am obssesed with keeping up with her and they are the cutest family ever!'" We laughed that we had both found your blog through COMPLETELY different sets of friends! Just wanted to let you know that there are two more people praying constantly for your family. And I hope you feel better tomorrow!

God is so GOOD! I am so very happy for Harper! My boys and I pray every night for her and I love reading your updates on how our prayers are being answered! My 22 month old is just learning how to pray and hold his hands together...it's so cute! Now when I see him do it, I think how exciting it will be for y'all when little Harper learns too!

I am soooooooooo excited about her levels being where they need to be! God is so good! I am specifically praying that you do not get sick and that beautiful Harper gets to go home soon.

Aubs said...

What a HUGE blessing that Scott's company has been so good to him so that you guys can be together right now. And so great to hear that Harper continues to improve!

Will be praying for your health~hopefully it will pass and you will feel much better tomorrow!

Hi Kelly,
I found your blog from reading a friend of a friend's, but I want to be added to your list of people who are PRAYING desperately for a baby. You can read more of my story at www.thehallherold.blogspot.com (not that you need to right now. You your hands FULL). Long story short is that we have been told that we can only have a baby through invitro. Our insurance doesn't cover it, etc. We found out though in December that we were pregnant and were so excited about our miracle from God. We went in for our 8 week ultrasound on January 12th to find that we were pregnant with twins, but had lost them both. I know God can do anything and I have faith that is much larger than a mustard seed. My name is Jessica Hall. Please add me to the list. Harper is on my mirror (I write people to pray for on my bathroom mirror so I won't forget). I will pray for her every day. Sorry for the LONG comment. I'm praying for strenght for you guys!

Jacquie said...

I'm praying for you to feel better, Kelly. Wouldn't want you to miss a moment with the little Miss.

That's great that Scott can be there AND work!!

That is such a worshipful song!!

Duchess said...

Still praying lovey. Feel better and take care of you so you can take care of Harper.

The Allens said...

Still praying! Take good care of you!

suburban prep said...

So happy to hear that Harper is doing better. Please take care of yourself. Perhaps some Airborne?
Harper is a strong young lady as is her mother.
Prayers are being said.

Lauren Kelly said...

Kelly- She gets more prettier everyday!!! I'm praying you get to feeling better. We love you!!! :)

Sharon M. said...

Kelly, get you some Zicam from Wal-Mart and start taking it. (Of course, check the label about taking it when you are nursing (preparing to nurse). It works wonders. If you start taking it at the first sign of a cold, it makes the cold go away so much faster. We will pray also for you though that you don't get sick. We love you and pray that God will continue to do His extraordinary work there in Tulsa.

monelle said...

HI Kelly! I still look forward to reading your posts. Even through these trials, you are still uplifting. I was just telling my mother and 92 year grandmother about you. We are all southern baptist women too! Anyway, they were so uplifted on how God is working in your life through little Harper. Please get some rest. Harper needs your sweet whispers! hugs!

Taryn in NY tarynhomick@roadrunner.com said...

When we are getting run down in this house or feeling like we may be getting sick we take something called "Emer-gen-C" It's a drink mix and you can find it in the Walmart vitamin section. It doesn't taste too bad or too good either ;o) but it gives you alot of vitamins. It's amazing- works wonders. The last thing any of us would want is for you to get sick and not be able to whisper to Harper. Get lots of rest!!!

Thank you for sharing that song! I needed to hear a song just like that tonight!!! I've never heard that song before- love it!!!

Harper is as cute as ever. I'm loving the diaper on backwards since she is on her tummy. Those chubby cheeks are to die for. She is so beautiful!

We continue to pray for all of you!

Feel better!!! XOXOXO

julie & joe said...

Take care of yourself and get some rest so you can see sweet Harper tomorrow. You are very blessed to have such great people in your lives to help you.
Take care tomorrow. Ice storms in Tulsa can be wicked. It will hit here a few hours after it hits there, I am hoping to be home from work well before the mess.

I LOVE that song - one of my favorites!!!! Gives me chills every time and every time we sing it in church I get choked up! :-)

I am praying for your health... the health of all of you really! So glad that Harper keeps getting better each day, that is really exciting!!!!

Tales From My Empty Nest said...

What an uplifting song! I am writing the words in my journal. Harper looks beautiful! Don't babies look so precious when they are sleeping? I could just look at her forever and think about what a miracle she is. God is so good!!! Tell your sweet parents hello. I hope you can fight that cold. Still praying for you all daily. Love & blessings in NC!

Alex and Jill said...

Can't wait to see Harper's eyes open and you holding her. Those orange zinc tablets at Walmart are really good when you're feeling run down. You went straight from delivering her to Tulsa...I'm sure your body needs rest. I'll be praying you feel better, tomorrow.

Love this song, as well.

((HUGS))

Sue Mom of Two said...

I've been checking in several times a day to see how sweet Harper is....and the word tonight is GREAT! The power of prayer cannot be underestimated.

Take care of yourself! And love to Harper.

Jenn said...

Thank you for sharing so much of your experience. As a nicu nurse I love know what we do that actually is helpful for moms. I'm praying for your beautiful little girl.

I have been waiting on your post today and I am sooo glad to see that Harper is continuing to improve!

God bless all of you!!!

Kristen said...

God bless you and your beautiful family! I know He has His hand on Harper and you will be looking into your daughter's beautiful eyes very soon.

Ruthie said...

My four year old daughter, Sophia, can totally recognize Harper now when she sees me checking your blog. She loves hearing about "Baby Harper" and I love sharing how God is healing her! She was asking me today when Harper will get to get out of the hospital. Praying you get well quick! Take care of yourself so you can take care of Harper! It's so hard to do that as a Mommy, and I can't even imagine how much harder it is for you to take time for yourself when your baby is in the NICU. God bless you Kelly!

Kelly, I dont' know you, but I have been praying for your family and sweet Harper everyday. I live in Middle TN and a friend sent me your blog to be in prayer and I have told everyone I know. I want you to know how much you have inspired me to be a better mother & wife. In sickness & health we are to pray for eachother. My prayers are stronger now and more heart felt. You are teaching me to be FAITHFUL. Harper is a true Gift from GOd and He speaks through her everyday. I will pray for your complete recovery for your strength tonight.God will provide. God bless you, Kelly!

I read your blog today at work and I cried (thank you). I am a NICU nurse in Houston and you have touched me. I am so amazed with your Godly spirit. In one of your posts you stated that you want to give back to people when you take Harper home. Well you are doing already with your blog.

I hope you feel better, and from experience if you don't pump you might feel like you have the flu. So try pumping every 2-3 hours.

Heather said...

That song makes me cry so hard every time I worship God with it! SO TRUE and SO POWERFUL! I will pray that you feel better soon, Kelly! Harper gets prettier every day and we will keep praying for her and all of you!

Rachel said...

So glad she is improving!! She is the sweetest thing!! Still praying!

Hope James Wilson said...

Father, I lift Kelly up to you & pray that you will heal her body. Allow her the rest that she needs tonight & keep her body from infection, so that she can be with precious Harper. Please continue to keep this family strong & healthy. We praise you for Harper's stronger health & ask for continued healing. Amen.

I am praying for rest and a healthy body for you tonight!

Jennifer said...

Hi Kelly,

We have never met, but I just wanted to let you know that I have been praying for Harper, you, and Scott since last weekend.

That is such a beautiful song--it reminds me of Psalm 18:2, the verse that God gave me during a difficult time in my life.

I know that God is holding Harper in the palm of His hands and I've been praising Him every time I read that she is improving each day. Glory to God!

God is doing such amazing things through you. Continue to cling to Him. I'm praying that God's loving presence will strengthen you and Scott and that He will continue to heal your precious baby. Thank you for sharing your love for Christ.

Your sister in Christ,
Jennifer

Kelly, I've never blogged to you before, but I came across your blog last Sat. (the day after Harper was born) I have followed it very closely since then. Your beautiful baby, Harper as well as you, Scott, your parents and Scott's parents are in my thoughts and prayers. Ya'll seem to be a very strong family. Hang in there...that beautiful baby will be home before you know it. Sonya in Alabama......

Great news about Harper's oxygen level and her meds.
Maybe you can get a new toothbrush or rinse yours in alcohol in case it has cold germs. ;D

Anonymous said...

I can only imagine how it will feel to hold your baby girl after patiently waiting SO long. I pray that the moment comes soon. How WONDERFUL that will feel. How blessed I feel to read your story your heart is so open. YOU are an amazing person and Harper is so blessed to have you as a mommy. You may never read this, but please pray for this child too. I feel almost selfish asking this of you, but you have seen God's work in your own child. You have prayed for all the other babies. Please go here and check it out.

www.breezyacresblogspot.com

Her name is Cora and she was diagnosed Friday with stage four Neuroblastoma. Her family is as precious as yours and her mother and father's heart is so open with God too. As you have seen over the last couple of days prayers work and miracles happen.
Your princess is beautiful. I know you can't wait to teach her and guide her to know and love Christ like you do. And tell her about the kingdom that awaits her in Heaven. But for now, we see her place is here on Earth with her mother and loved ones surrounding her, as well as all the years she has to wear all those Prissy bows and dresses with her name embroidered on them. And tears to cry over broken hearts. (or maybe she will be breaking hearts) I can't wait to read your blog and hear updates on that!! That time is coming. All too soon. Your smile is so beautiful even in a time of trial. But YOu have chosen to not let evil into YOUR heart. Again, YOU are truly amazing!

Please pray for 10 month old Cora and her long journey ahead. Please pray that the Lord gives the doctors the knowlege to treat Cora's illness. Please pray the the Lord heals Cora, please pray for peace for her mother and father. please tell people to lift her and her family up.
Thanks so much.

Hey Kelly. It's Lori Abbott Motl (Tri Chi, OBU '93 grad). I just wanted to tell you that I'm praying for you and sweet little Harper. I am amazed by your strength. You and your sweet family are living such an amazing testimony of Christ and His love and faith. May He continue to strengthen you and give you health in the coming days. I can't wait to see the pictures of you holding your little princess. Also, love that Tri Chi sign!

The Shabby Princess said...

Oh no! So sorry to hear that you aren't feeling well, but, so glad that Harper is doing well. You're probably feeling run down because you've been so busy being such a good Mommy to Harper. Take care of YOU. We're praying for you to get better and Miss Harper to hurry up and get better too!

Thank you for all you do, Kelly. I was sitting at church today thinking of you and thinking about how although you are going through a great trial right now, I was thinking about how amazing the work is that you are able to do--you have been able to share the power of God with so many people, and inspire and motivate so many. What a blessing you are to everyone whose life you have touched.

Prayers for Harper!

Rebecca said...

Harper gets prettier every day! Praying for you BOTH! Do feel better!

Kelly Taylor said...

It's great to read another awesome update about the work our God is doing in that sweet Harper girl. I'm continuing to pray for her as well as you and your newest symptoms of a brewing cold. Take care and get some much needed rest if you can.

Katy said...

Oh, dear. Keep up your strength, dang you can't be sick...you are right on that. Drink some O.J., oh try that Airborne ..the tablets you drop in water, that helps me at the first signs of a cold.
I will pray that you can stay healthy for your baby. Maybe this is God's way of saying, "Slow Down". I don't know, I'm grasping here.
I'm so happy that Harper is doing so much better.
I bet you feel better with some changes of clothing.

Tutu said...

Praying you'll wake up in the morning feeling good as new!

I can't wait to see a picture of you holding that sweet baby in your arms!

Jamie said...

Oh, I hope you don't get sick! The common cold is so annoying, and especially if it keeps you from being near sweet Harper!!! Praying you feel fine in the morning!

That's so great that Scott's work has allowed him the flexibility to work from there next week. I was wondering if he would have to go back home--I really didn't want you to have to stay in Tulsa without him! I hope this week shows as much (or even more!) improvement for H...it sounds like she's doing GREAT, and I'm so thankful! You'll be home-sweet-home with her before you know it...hang in there! We love you guys and we're still thinking about you constantly.

I haven't looked at the weather for the week...I didn't know about the winter storm!? Guess I'd better check! I sure hope it doesn't snow and cancel MDO this week because I'm in a panic over how much I need to do to get ready for A's birthday party next Saturday...I'm really counting on every second of that MDO time! :)

becca said...

I have had so many people at church ask about you. There are a lot more ties to Ouachita there than I'd realized!
I will add your health to my prayers. You do not need to be sick :( And Harper sure doesn't need another round of anything! Is she getting your breastmilk though??? cuz that would of course offer her some protection.

Kingdom Mama said...

Such wonderful news!! We'll up our prayers for YOUR health too!

Sharon Weeks said...

We at Healing Waters Pentecostal Church in Richmond, Va. are praying for a complete healing with the touch of God's loving hands over sweet baby Harper and your whole family. We will keep ya'll on our prayer list until our prayers for you all are answered. God bless. Sharon Weeks

Cortni said...

Wonderful song. I think that Harper is such a testimony to how awesome God is and how prayer really does work.

I am getting over being sick all of last week, so I will definitely be praying for you to be well.

Praying for you, hey take you some vitamin C and drink some O.J. That should help. You have been through a major ordeal lately so you are going to get wore down. Take care of you. Let mom go and visit while you stay and rest some.

Praying for you and Harper in Alabama~~

I'm praying for you that you don't get sick. Gosh, how hard that would be. I'm trusting God to give you the rest you need tonight and to heal your body. Wash, wash, wash your hands and drink LOTS of water. Bless your heart! I just love you even though I don't even know you. I wish I could just give you a hug and take care of you! Praying for you all this week!

We went to church tonight and were singing "Mighty to Save" and I started thinking about you and Scott and Harper and just started crying. I just wanted to let you know that God laid you on my heart...He can move mountains and He is mighty to save...Harper will be home before you know it...but it will be done in His good timing. God bless you!!!

Always a Southern Girl said...

You are definitely in my prayers! As well as your husband and baby Harper. Your whole family. Praise God that Harper is doing better. My step-daughters and I have been following your blog. They are amazed at how strong you are. I told them you have the "Peace that passes all understanding" We are praying for you in Chicago!

Praise God for Harper's improvement. We put little Harper on our prayer list at church this morning. Take care of yourself. Still praying and will say a special prayer for your health.

The Pittsburgh Hites said...

Kelly,
We have been praying up here in the 'burgh since we found out about sweet, beautiful Harper last week. We will continue to lift her in prayer as well as the rest of your family.
Just know that you do have to rest and take care of yourself, which I know will never totally be able to happen until you are all HOME again together, but make sure to take something so you nip this cold in the bud. I have been praying that you are strong (physically as well as emotionally) while on this journey, for I remember how sore I got sitting in that NIC-U day after day, just waiting for our little guy to get to come home.
Thank you for all the wonderful daily updates. The bows in her hair, and her on her tummy just bring me to tears, how precious she is!
Keep fighting Harper, we are all praying!!
-Ginger

The Reids said...

Kelly,
I just began reading your blog this week, a friend of mine sent me the link asking me to pray for Harper. What a blessing it has been to read. You are an amazing woman who is an inspiration to so many. We continue to pray for your family and know that God walking beside you and holding little Harper's hand as she recovers. As I was reading your blog today this verse came to mind.

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:29-31

Oh Kelly! I hope you don't get sick. Praying that you can stay well!
Take care of yourself!...easier said than done when all you want to do is sit by that sweet girls side.
I don't question or wonder for one second about your postive attitude. Your right...He is our very present help in time of need. We never feel his presence more than when we ARE in the midst of trial and suffering. Perhaps that is why we go through them. We realize our utter dependence on Him.

You will look back on this experience in a few months and realize just how much strength you had. Strength that was given to you by God.
Thank you for keeping us updated on Harper's progress.

Martha in California said...

You're right about getting some rest... and carry wet wipes with you whenever possible. I hate to say this but some people don't wash up as much as they should...germs spread quickly, handles, doorknobs, etc. Boy, I sound like a mom, but I just pray you will not get sick,so you can visit with your precious girl.

Crissy said...

PRAISE GOD!!!! I prayed for Harper and Brayden at church this evening! I will also ask God to heal you so you don't become sick!

Kelly,

You are just the most precious girl I've ever "met"! I just said a prayer that you won't get sick, so that you won't have to spend time away from your little one. I just want you to know how much I long to be a strong Christian woman like you. Thank you for being such a wonderful example of that to me! Praise Him for the love he has shown all of us through your story.

You are so positive (and I love all the ya'lls)and I'm looking forward to being a bloggy looky loo as you venture into the fun parts of mommyhood. Harper is precious - those cheeks are too much!! One question for you though - is her diaper on backwards? :-)
