Goodbye ICU!

After a wonderful morning snuggling with my little girl, we got to move to a cushy private room on the peds floor! I am so excited to take one step closer to home. Noelle is sleeping peacefully right now in this sunny room with a beautiful view.

Goodbye to the ICU! She gave us a little half smile for the occasion.
A room with a view!

If you think about it, could you pray for a grieving family? As I walked out to the ICU waiting area to call Joel with the happy news of our move, I passed a family grieving the news of their lost little one. Their pain was so raw. It was heartbreaking to witness. It could so easily have been us a few days ago. I am thankful for more time with our sweet girl but have a fresh awareness of how fragile life is. I am praying that this family would somehow be aware of God's loving presence and peace in their darkest hour.

My heart hurts for this family. I'll be praying. I'm so thankful there will be a time with no more sorrow.

Please give Noelle hugs for us and tell her her friends miss her!

I will pray for the loss of this family, I cannot imagine the emotions they are going through.

I just found you through your comment on the (in)courage site. I am praising God for a successful surgery and I will keep your daughter in my prayers!

I have been praying for your daughter via Julie and Rob Teigs but I am also a product of Palouse and friends with the Hilty-Jones family while growing up there. I am so happy to hear that things went well for Noelle!
tell Joel, that Carissa (Tharp) says "hi"
