Fill #8

When you have something scheduled weekly, it really is amazing how quickly time flies. It feels like just a few days ago that I had updated for Fill #7, and here we are, done another since.

We started this whole process back in November, and we wondered how it would actually go, not just complication-wise, but weather-wise. We were definitely counting on having to travel in snowy conditions at least once. But even though we've been having one storm after another, not once have we had to travel in it. The storm has either just happened the day before or is coming later that day. We are truly thankful to God for this.

So off we went this morning, knowing full well that thanks to the snowstorm yesterday, with people not being able to get to work, the roads would be that much busier today. It took us a full 2 hours to get there (it should only take 35-40 minutes). However, we are so thankful that the roads were clear and we arrived safely.

 She is always so patient, no matter how long it takes to get there.

Today went very well for Keziah. A tear or two, and that was it! And she was very excited to open up the gift she had been saving since the last fill up!

That's right. Princess Nail Polish for our princess!! She was absolutely thrilled! And sure enough, the first thing we did once Lincoln went to bed this afternoon, was paint her nails! You can hardly see the nail polish, but it's got *sparkles*, which means a lot to this little girl.

And here are the results of Fill #8:

(showing off her sparkly nails. Personally I think her eyes sparkle more.....:o)

Such a brave and happy girl!

She has one of the most smiley smiles, and her personality is so engaging (well, when she isn't tired....;). This is shown wherever she goes as she touches a lot of peoples' lives. Today, the Admittance office administrator (aka secretary), who we see every time we check in, gave Keziah a little surprise. She had one of the nurses make Keziah this beaded lizard. She just loves Keziah! It's people like her that makes these weekly trips enjoyable!!
We are thankful that we can see the end in sight, with 2 or 3 more fills to go before surgery. We are also so very thankful for Keziah's health so far this winter. While many have been struck by a flu bug or cold or something (including Nathan and I), Keziah has not had a single sickness. Yet. We pray that this continues in the home stretch. If she becomes sick, we cannot do a fill, which would be a setback. We are so close to being done! So please pray with us that she remains healthy.
Thanks again and have a great week!
