I visited Liam today. While Stacey was kind of down in the dumps, I tried to humor both her and Jason. A little humor and a giggle tends to help. At least that is what I think. After last night, I was getting down myself but I feel like I should be there for them and be strong. And I will admit that I am in denial that Liam won’t make it. I feel such a peace when I am visiting him and am praying constantly that God will be there for this little guy.
We took a break to go get some lunch and while eating I decided to look up the scores of the college games. In particular, the Ole Miss/TN game. Glad I did! Ole Miss ended up winning. Yeah! We all laughed and Jason teased me yet again about my choice of teams to cheer for.
We chatted with one of the doctors as well and she was reassuring them that while they don’t have answers yet, that Liam is not a unique case. That they, unfortunately, have cases that cause them to do more research with little answers coming quickly. So hope is still on our side.
We were all talking to Liam, laughing about the things we will do with him when he is older and he started to have hiccups! This is the first time ever that he has done that! Praise God! Little milestones like this make you smile. I left shortly after this, kissing that cute little head of his, promising I would visit again tomorrow. Later I got a call from Stacey, Liam opened his eyes for them twice! Again, Praise God!!! Keep up the fight Liam, we are all here for you.
Here is their caring bridge link, please stop by to check on his updates, and I will continue to update here. Also, please leave a message if you like over there. Stacey gets great encouragement from this and I do as well. Really, it touches me so much to know that so many people care about this little boy and are praying for him.
And as I was leaving the hospital today, I saw another rainbow. Thank you God for showing me that you are indeed hearing our prayers and sending this sweet little messages.
