Updates on Victoria Lily Joy van den Broek, born 120705.

Wednesday, November 02, 2005


Today we had the same Dr. visit as yesterday - he happened to come round in the short time it took me to nip upstairs and get the 11am feed. the upshot was that he would come back and get the blood. True to his word he did. He said that because hands are nerve-rich areas it was better to get the necessary stuff from a vein in her head - I went off to make myself a cup of hot chocolate and by the time I came back it was all done, without distress to Victoria. Praise the Lord! For all those of you (like me) who need such answers to prayer to encourage you to pray further, be encouraged.
I heard that the ward onto which Victoria would have gone, if she had not had 'C diff' infection, now has sickness and diareah (never could spell that word...) - so the isolation has saved Victoria from that too. The Lord truly is good to all and His tender mercies are over all His works.
So, we are all set to come out. if the potassium level is still low then she will just have supplements.
when weighed this morning she was 4.72 - she has never been that heavy - and that after a week during which half the time she was not allowed any food at all!
i am full of thankfulness to the Lord for His fatherly care over my little charge and feel well and truly blessed.
Updates will continue on this blog as and when. And thanks for your prayers! God is Amazing!

    Oh Tracy, I was so pleased to read today's account! Truly, the Lord DOES work for the good of those who love Him!! Even though, at the time, we think it is a disaster! He knows the outcomes. So very pleased to think that you and precious Victoria will soon be home - call if you have need.
    Much love, Kerry
