We started off with a little excitement today. Harper had to have a MRI so she and I got to ride on a hospital bed down to radiology (which is about 5 miles away from our room). Harper LOVED the ride - she smiled and laughed the whole way there.
I got a package from Leach Company here in OK - they sent me several wonderful things for Harper like a nursing pillow and this shopping cart cover. This will be wonderful because we have to be SO careful of germs. Harper won't even get her first trip to Wal-Mart for several months. We have to keep her at home for a while and we won't be able to have visitors. She can't be around anyone - especially children. We just can't take the chance of her getting sick.
If you could please continue to keep Harper in your prayers please - our doctor and a pediatric neurologist both came to meet with us today about her MRI separately. There is some small concern about a lining in her brain. They are not overly worried but of course my heart has been in my stomach most of the day. Harper is very alert and her motor skills are all good. A physical therapist met with her and thought she looked great. But of course I can't help but be worried that something is wrong with her brain. They want us to come back in a few months to evaluate her development. We are trusting that God who formed her in my womb and knew her before she was conceived will allow her to be well.
We have this awesome CD and Harper has listened to it over and over. There is a verse inside the cover that I love and I'm praying this for Harper tonight:
He is Mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with his love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.
