The above picture shows you just how relaxed and unstressed Sweet Pea is.
The bilirubin issue is basically no longer an issue and she is showing minimal to no signs of withdrawals!
Her birth mother was on a very high dosage of methadone but research has shown it is not the amount of methadone taken that determines how affected the baby is at birth.
The determining factor is how much the placenta absorbs the methadone and passes it on to the baby.
There have been countless prayers prayed for this baby girl since we first learned of her on March 8th – exactly five months ago from tomorrow!
I specifically asked my prayer warriors to pray that God would shield Sweet Pea in the womb and not allow the methadone to pass through the placenta to Sweet Pea.
The only explanation as to why Sweet Pea is not experiencing the methadone withdrawals is that God did indeed protect her little body in her birth mother’s womb!
And now for the best news yet…
Dr. Wonderful has predicted Sweet Pea will be discharged tomorrow …
… at only six days old!
What a mighty God we serve!
Thank YOU for praying for Sweet Pea.
If you have prayed for Sweet Pea’s health would you leave a comment on this post just saying you have prayed for her??
One day, I would love for Sweet Pea to be able to read all the comments left and see for herself just how many people, around the world, were praying for her!
I’ll give a brief update in the morning once I know for sure if we are definitely headed HOME!!
