Who's the cutest girl around?

I am a mom of a cutie pie (very biased). And I wanted to share my experiences with others (including my cuties grandparents, great-grandparents, numerous uncles and other relatives). I love being a mom and can't imagine doing anything else.

Day +69

Livi Laughed by Pa
Yesterday Livi laughed outloud several times and her overall mood was better than it has been in a while. So far today she continues to be ina better mood. It is hard to describe how it makes us feel when she laughs. We laugh with her but for me, my eyes end up a little watery. Tears of Joy?!? We see God's mercy and goodness in Livi's smiles.

Her numbers (lab results) have been gradually improving. The docs have been encouraged. Because of her inactivity she has gotten quite wek and so is unsteady and scared when she stands. Physical therapywas in today and was helful with suggestions. Tory, the P.T., gave her a miniature walker for us to use with Livi. She didn't seem to mind it. Soon we weill be using it and I am sure it will end up plastered with stickers.

There are obviously many things to contineu to pray for: Liver and kidney functioning, blood counts, now standing and walking, full recovery, dare I say discharge, Emily and James...or however you are lead. Most of all be sure to thank God for His faithfulness and goodness. For getting us through this journey so far I would ask that you pray that we can see His hand in everything that happens. Even those things that are difficult and hard to understand.

Thank you dear readers for all of your support and Prayers.

When TOri left Livi's roomtoday she said to be "super positive" when Livi stands we all agreed and clapped for Livi. Livi added her little accent mark "yeah ,ah, yeah". Way to cute!!

"fear nt I am with you, be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, you I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand." Is 41

So glad to hear from you all. So glad to hear Livi is laughing. I am glad I woke up and walked by the computer, I feel relieved by the reported laughter of a little girl I have never met who has become so much a part of my daily thoughts and prayers. Thank you for the beautiful pictures. Aaron and James both look so happy in the pictures and most importantly so does Livi. Thank God for her little smile....what a huge sense of happiness amd relief I feel this evening for the update. Looking forward to many smiles ahead from Livi. Continuing to pray...Love to all, Betsie

We continue to pray for all of your requests, as we know first hand how important prayer is. Jim is +33 days from his transplant and is doing well. The Hickman port was removed 2 wks ago but he still has the medi-port, which we hope can be removed soon. Remain strong and keep the faith as your prayers will be answered! Remember...laughter is the best medicine:) Hugs and kisses to Livi!

Laughter is God's special gift of Grace. Surely it was an answer to prayer! When the blog is silent, we increase our prayers! I am having a Mass of the Lord's Supper said at our Church on Tuesday, May 22 at 12:10 in the afternoon for Alivia's special intentions of healing. We continue to pray for Alivia and all of you who care for her in the most beautiful way. Let me say, too, that I really appreciated you, James, dear great nephew, your comments recently on the blog. That image of the plywood meant so much. May all of you in Alivia's life be strengthened to perservere.........you are running the good race onto victory!
