Sabbath Day Surprise!

We had a full weekend. Qavah seemed better by Saturday morning so we took her out to her swing and she spent some time outdoors. Her fever has not returned. I have an appointment for her transfusion this coming week. Tonight as she was getting ready for bed I noticed that she was working on her loose tooth with her tongue. She suddenly said, "Oh, it is coming out!" Sure enough I took the tissue and dried off the tooth and it came out of her mouth stuck to the tissue without any tugging or trauma. She squealed with delight and shouted for everyone to come and take a look. It is such a sweet thing to see her joy over this event.

We have records for Qavah from four different hospitals. Sometimes she was admitted to those hospitals in critical condition. I wish I could find a way to thank every one of her care givers and tell them she lived to reach this milestone. God has so much more in store for her. We will reap the blessings as we watch the plan for her life to unfold. We are so blessed.
