Not a lot to tell tonight. We are just getting ready to pick up Gaines tomorrow morning. Beau is out right now picking up prescriptions and he just put Gaines' car seat in the car. I let our rooster stay up later tonight in hopes that he will sleep past 4:30 tomorrow. Pray with me.
Today has been a great day. We said goodbye to some of our sweet nurses today. Very bittersweet. The nurses, women's director and nursing director all got Gaines a "Good Luck" cake. So sweet of them. I wonder if I will cry when we leave tomorrow? When we left GW I was ok walking out of the NICU but lost it in the elevator. I guess we'll see.
This afternoon as I was driving to the hospital I saw another rainbow but this time it was a full arched one...you could see both sides. I felt like it was God saying...I told you. He did.
Our road isn't over but we are in such a better place than we were four or five months ago. It was raining today as I walked into the hospital and I thought it was very fitting. It reminded me of those early days when we trudged back and forth from the hospital in the cold drizzly rain. I was talking to the nurses today and remembered some of those really bad, dark days. They seem so far away now. God never promised us an easy road, but He does promise to never leave us and I'm here to tell you its true. I am amazed and in awe of God tonight as I think back on how far Gaines has come. He is such a miracle and is definitely in this world for a reason.
Please keep us in your prayers as we close a chapter and open a new in our journey tomorrow.
Love to all,
