Something to Celebrate!

To the faithful who keep checking this blog: THANK YOU!
Here we are, almost 4 months after my last post with more GREAT news! On Feb. 18th, we had Lilee's cardiologist check-up to see if her heart is still working well since her surgery.
Funny thing. We've been through a very intense process with Lilee and her heart issues, met a lot of doctors and nurses, filled out endless paperwork and STILL get nervous watching her cardiologist inspect her. My pulse is pounding and I'm watching every twitch of the dr's eyelash, hoping to read any report- good or bad!
Why is it that no matter what amazing lesson we learn under stressful circumstances, no matter how great a breakthrough with the Lord, we can immediately revert back to doubting at the first sign of trouble? God is so good, continuing to show His faithfulness, no matter how long ago Lilee's surgery occured.
After reviewing her heart ultrasound, Dr. Juris said there wasn't any change since her last appointment and that her heart looks good. He wants to see us again in 4 months (June). I like to think we'll be more spiritually mature and handle the appointment with more ease. Like I said, God is good and He is faithful whether I retain my life lesson or not. Obviously, we're not looking forward to the day that Dr. Juris says she ready for another surgery, however, God will be the same God then as He has been and as He is now.
Stay tuned. I'll be posting a new video soon. We love you all and continue to value your support, prayer and diligence in reading our blog.
All our love,
Erin, Chris and Lilee Finch
p.s. baby boy Finch (Lincoln Paul) will be coming soon. April 12th (Easter Sunday) he should be here!!! Oh my goodness!
