"Miracle Baby"

Seriously....that's what she (Lilah's cardiologist) said at our appointment today.  Dr. Bremer said, "She looks perfect. She's a little miracle baby."  These are, without any doubt, the sweetest words I have ever heard!  And, she's right...her left ventricle is no longer dilated, her heart function is normal, her VSD (hole between ventricles) is smaller and may close on it's own, her ASD is not causing her any problems.  There is still the serious cardiomyopathy, but Dr. Bremer said that, with medication, her body is "clearly well compensating".   Obviously, prayer changes things:) We are truly overjoyed!
And, we are having this little miracle baby baptized, as planned, this Sunday at Redeemer at 11am....with gladdened hearts!

"Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; 
 his faithfulness continues through all generations"
Psalm 100:1, 5

That she is.... a miracle. Praise be to God! So happy right now!!! Don't you just love when a DOCTOR says that something is a miracle! Most docs want to TRY to explain it MEDICALLY. Dr. Bremer has always given credit where credit is due! We love her!

Praising God for this MIRACLE this beautiful fall morning!
Love,
The Johnson Seven

Dear Burch family, "Praise ye the Lord! Praise Him for Lilah! Praise Him for the gifts of Faith, Hope, and Love. Praise Him for being our Lord and Savior. Praise Him for the privilege of prayer and for the power of prayer. Praise Him that the "facts and figures" of medicine are not the end of knowledge. Praise Him that the Lord God has chosen us to join Him in His work here on earth through the wonder of prayer. Praise Him that we can know that it is indeed God who has heard our prayers."

How happy, and blessed, we are to hear good news, gospel news, about your little Lilah and to know that your hearts, the hearts of her parents, have been lifted up. Thank you so much for posting and letting us share in your journey.--Sandy Foster

That is the most wonderful news!!! I am so happy for you all. The boys will continue to include little Lilah in their bedtime prayers, but now we'll be thanking God for his miracle and asking him to continue his healing for Lilah!
Truly Amazing! Enjoy the baptism.
