Day 13 12/21/09

This is the day that the Lord has made let us rejoice and be glad in it!
Psalm 118:24
Hank has made incredible progress. Today they are going to start one by one taking out several different lines, then the last chest tube, then the breathing machine (ventilator). They mentioned if each thing goes well and they are able to take him off all the anticipate today we may even be able to hold him tonight.
Hank's little lovey covers him as a blanket it is sooooo cute! He is on this really warm blowing bed, he is gonna hate his bed at home! I always said he would never come to bed with us...... well...... it's gonna be hard! We will just have to have lots of snuggling and see where we end of for bed, haha!
Dr. Strobel just came in and said hes doing swimmingly???? He meant "very well", but I had never heard word that used in a positive sentence but maybe he just had a brain fart!
We got the sweetest gift today from Molly with How To Pray Cards! I had registered for some prayer cards for Hank for my shower through! They are so sweet. It was such great timing since yesterday I started writing scripture all over his room!
These were the sweetest gift thanks Molly!

We have had several requests for our address at the hospital so here it is:

Samantha, Derric, and Hank Harughty
Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital
9th Floor PICU #13
6411 Fannin
Houston, TX 77030

I praise you beause I am fearfully and wonderfully made!
Psalm 139:14

So I never really got the whole fearfully part but boy do I ever get it now! God is so good.

I have been checking the blog everyday and praying for a quick and safe recovery. It is times like this when you truly see God's power! You and Derric are amazing and I admire your strength, but your strength is what has helped so much. I will continue to pray and check the website!

I, too, have been following your website every day since I heard about baby Hank's arrival! I'm so glad to hear that the gift arrived and that it's timing was a blessing. I took a shot that it would find it's way to you! Thanks for all the wonderful, encouraging scriptures you posted yesterday. God has already been so glorified through the Harughty family. Hard to believe I'm tuning in to your website for encouragement, but it is true! Your joy and faith are so evident - it is infectious! God is good and God is mighty! I'll continue to follow Hank's story - thanks for sharing.
