We haven't done anything with the pictures from our "big" camera this weekend, but in the interest of sharing something visual in a more expedient manner, here's one that was snapped with the camera phone.
After I opened the gifts, I was asked to share how those gathered could be supporting and praying for the three of us. It was hard not to choke up as I described Ewan's heart defect for those who weren't totally up-to-date, the tests we still face, the anxieties and fears we have, as well as the unexpected blessings that have already come out of this. We were prayed over, hugged, and loved beyond what I am able to comprehend or take in.
With all the activity this weekend (which started out with Kaari's 30th birthday party and ended with the baby shower), we are exhausted -- exhausted and aware of how loved and blessed we are, as well as how many challenges we still have yet to face. I have another ultrasound today and am already anxious and on-edge about it. I don't want to be, but we have yet to have a scan that's yielded happy news. And so I wonder.
And that's ususally when Ewan will squirm or let his little foot poke out. It reminds me that for now, he is well and that we will be, too.
