I'm about to break out into song

In college I was in a musical, Fiddler on the Roof. After spending a huge part of every day one summer in rehearsals, the songs are pretty well ingrained into me. There's one this morning that keeps ringing through my head.

Wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles
I was afraid that God would frown.
But just like He did so long ago in Jericho,
God just made a wall fall down.

Why this one? Because about 7:30 this morning, the surgeon and PA came in, popped out that chest tube (which caused one little squeak outta L which Dr. B said was the best any kid has ever done), and announced that if we pushed, L gets to go home this afternoon! The last labs were drawn around 5am, she just finished her last round of antibiotics, and then she can get off the rest of her tethers and go for a walk and to the playroom for activities and to the cafeteria for lunch.

Lydia looks so beautifully healthy! Praise God. I will leave your special Point of Grace Prize at the Proverbs office. It will be there by Thursday of next week. If you can't make it by there, call Melissa and give her your address and she can send it to you. I am so glad you won! Hey, pop over to my site and register for some more good give aways that will be coming all through the month of December. Fun! Fun!

Just wanted to check in on Lydia. Glad she is doing well. She looks wonderful. I wish I looked that pretty after surgery!
