Hope and Fear
As for Miss Elizabeth, she is doing so amazing! She has continued to make progress with saying more words. And has started trying to walk when you hold onto her hands. She really is making the most of those angel lungs :) She started her 2nd year of preschool last week in a new classroom. Thankfully most of the same kids are in the class, just new teachers. Every milestone she meets truly another blessing for us, there were many days I worried she would never make it this far. We head to Houston this week for testing and possible airway surgery. Matt and I both are so unsure of what to do, what decision will be best for Elizabeth. We are hoping with more information from the tests and the consultation with the surgeon, we will have more information to make this decision. We want what is best for her, sometimes I really do hate having to make these decisions that affect her life so much. I know thats part of being a parent, but sometimes it is a lot to take in - having to make choices that could mean life or death for your child or choices that could totally affect their quality of life. But with all the other decisions we have had to make, I try to remind myself that not matter what WE decide, someone bigger already knows the outcome.
I will update more as we learn more during our trip to Texas, and as we get the results on Baby #2. Thank you for your continued prayers and support! We will definitely need them as we embark on this new stage of life with Elizabeth!
