"The Lord redeemeth the soul of His servants, and none of them that trust in Him shall be desolate." Psalm 34:22
It was a long time coming, but after 4 weeks in the hospital we said our goodbyes, packed our baby in his car seat and headed home.

Being home again was exciting, unnerving and exhausting! Samuel needs to be given his medicines 4 times a day, and he gets weighed weekly. We’re still battling with breast feeding, and a bit of a supply problem. Through all this though, Sam has thrived. He has put on bucket loads of weight, and is doing all the right baby things. I am thankful for him everyday, and I cherish every smile. He’s got an easygoing nature, and nothing seems to faze him much. .
We have to go back up to Greenlane Hospital again at the end of September for another catheter study, to check how things are going in there, and also to block off the remaining vessels to his lungs. We should only be there for 3 days.
Samuel. ‘God has heard’. Quite fitting, don’t you think?
"Be careful for nothing, but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be make known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7
All Scriptures are quoted from the King James Bible, and were among those in the Daily Light (a compilation of verses for each day) during the time we were up in Auckland. They stand as a testimony that God's grace pulled us through even the hardest of times. He was ever close at hand.
