After her very long and arduous day, they were finally able to bring her fever down and she got some real rest. Rest she hadn't had in days. It was so good to sit beside her and just watch her sleep.
She is so beautiful...this daughter of ours. To see her resting comfortably only added to her aura of beauty.
Let me just say that I am SO thankful for the advances in modern medicine and for the healing that she has been promised. She is blessed to live on earth at this time. Many, many children would have succumbed to the high fever (not to mention the severe infection) in days of old. I can't even imagine.
That being said, parents should never have to see their child hospitalized. It is so hard to see her with all of the tubes and wires and machines beeping by her bedside and her little eyes flickering at the slightest noise.
And yet, I KNOW it could be so much worse.
