Removing My Shoes

11 Jan

Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God:
But only he who sees, takes off his shoes,
The rest sit round it, and pluck blackberries.

- Elizabeth Barrett Browning

I’m done plucking blackberries.  There is God all around us and we need to open our eyes.  Thank you to all of the people who are keeping Makoa and the Breeden ohana in your prayers.

A quick update…

I spoke with Tiffany and they have moved Makoa up to the 5th floor where all of the stable babies go.  This is of course great news!  The doctor with terrible bedside manners was actually very kind to Tiffany today, saying that he would help with getting us transferred.  He also said our little guy was looking MUCH stronger and it in fact may just be nutrition.  All of your prayers are working!!

It looks like the transfer may or may not happen, it all comes down to the insurance.  We are praying that if we are supposed to be at Children’s it happens, and if not, for God’s path to be shown to us.  We want the best care and if that is at Torrance than so be it.

We will be staying at Tiffany’s parents tonight so I will be able to see Makoa as well as Kaia and Nainoa.  I have dubbed the Glendale-Santa Monica-Torrance spread the “Triangle of Traffic” due to the distance between each.  I’m sure it will be a juggling act for the next few weeks, but our family and friends are a great help.  Thank you to all of those who have offered to help.  We really appreciate it!
