Our first bump in the road

Well, Sumana has been doing sooooo well it's really taken us by surprise. However, yesterday and this morning she is having a lot of difficulty breathing. The respiratory treatments aren't cutting it . . . I think I'll go back to 4 treatments today and see if that helps. Also, a trip to the doctor might be good to make sure things aren't 'settling' in her lungs. Sigh! Just when I was reveling in getting back into 'normal' life . . . I know 'it's' out there on the horizon.

I've been pondering the title "Sumana's Faith" lately, too. Faith is an unquestioning belief in something, a complete trust, a resolute stand. What a tough word! I can see that while my faith in Christ has always been there, I certainly have questioned and wavered a bit in His plan for our family. His way is always best, but that doesn't mean it's easy! In regards to Sumana, her faith in Jesus is so real . . . it's beautiful to see. And then, when you consider her determination to overcome challenges in her own life . . . WOW, what a package! She really is such a blessing! Please pray for her health today and for wisdom on my part to know who to call and what to do. Thank you!

  1. I have read ahead and see that she's doing better, thank GOD! I am so glad to hear that.
    Although I have NO idea what it is like to have a child with the physical difficulties she's experiencing I have had a close call with asthma type symptoms with lakelan and I KNOW the horrible sinking pit in your stomach feeling you get when your baby is coughiing and coughing like that, it IS sad!! :-( Sorry you had to go through that when you already thought you were "out of the woods".
    Also...I LovE to read about her faith...that someone so young and who's had more struggles than most of us will ever know can have such unwavering faith in her FAther is inspiring and a beautiful reminder to those of us who get caught up in the small stuff.
    Thank you Cheryl, Thank you Sumana, you are beautiful. Jesus smiles daily because of you, no doubt.
