He just continues to Pour out Healing!

"Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You." (Jeremiah 32:17)

This is the face of a happy girl. She had her 2nd dose  of 4 Malarone pills last night and other than nausea, she had no other problems. She will get her final 4 pills tonight and then her blood work in the morning.

The Lord has just continued to pour his blessings out to us and we just continue to stand amazed at His goodness. Dr. P came by with her blood work results from this morning. Dr. W from the trauma ER room came up to check on her today as well.

Ready for some awesome, amazing, wonderful news? You want to see how the power of God and prayer has just worked mightily in the life of my precious daughter?

* Liver enzymes down to the double digits (previously in the triple digits)

* Billirubin down to 2.9 (from 16 originally)

*Platelets up to 91,000! (a far cry better than 11,000)

* Blood smear that shows number of parasites in the red blood cells? Zero! You read that right. There are no parasites present in her red blood cells. None!

Today she is resting better. She still has an excrutiating headache and they are supposed to finally give her something for it since her numbers are headed in the right direction. She has had lots of nausea today, but is doing so much better.

The doctor said when her billirubin comes down to in the "1's", then she can go home as long as all the other numbers are still holding good. We are hoping that the blood work in the morning will show this so we can leave this place and go home!

The Lord continues to show Himself mighty. He continues to hold us close. He continues to bring healing and restoration. We just give Him all the praise and glory for what He has done in Melissa's body. We exalt Him for His majesty and His love! He is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. He is our all in all. He is God.

"You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world." (1 John 4:4)

And all this amidst a season of holidays (with pressure all their own). You're amazing ... and so is The Lord that holds you!

May the good reports continue to stack up; and may your mother's heart rejoice in your daughter's restored vigor.

Glory to God forever and all the ages to come...

Ps.120:1 - "I took my troubles to the Lord; I cried out to him, and he answered my prayer."

Finally, I pray that you can breathe a little better now. Because I know it's not easy to see our children when they are sick or hurting...Wish it's easier to just take it away from them. But the Lord is merciful. As He himself hurts when we hurt...Thanks be to God!

Oh, Amen and Amen! With more tears from this girl at the other end of the internet, I cry out to God for He is faithful, He is forever and ever more. Giving Him all the praise and glory is an honor.
Thank You, LORD, for continuing to heal Melissa. I ask You to take her blood and platelet levels to all the right spots so that she will be able to go home. Squelch those headaches and completely heal her, LORD. Thank You for holding them close to You through this and for letting us glorify You along with this family. Amen.
I love you, Beth... and Melissa, too : ) ~ linda

I am saying a BIG Thank you to God for such wonderful news. I am still praying that she continues to get better every day. Stay strong.

Edie said...

Praising God with you Beth!! I love the sweet smile on Melissa's face. You can see that she is clearly doing better.


Thank You, Lord, for the healing that You are doing in Melissa's body and her spirit! Continue to teach her through this trial of her faith. Sickness brings us to the brink of weakness... the place where we exchange it for Your strength [for Your glory.]

As I type these words there is a song playing on my computer with these words:

BREATH OF HEAVEN - hold me together - be forever near me.
BREATH OF HEAVEN - light in my darkness - pour over me Your holiness - for You are Holy!
BREATH OF HEAVEN... Breath of Heaven!

May the BREATH OF HEAVEN breathe on You this night and bless you in His Presence!

Choosing JOY, Stephanie
