She did keep Cheep Cheep with her during the stare down!
Showing us the penguin that one of the hospital volunteers left for her.
She was a fan of the TV in that room!

It ended up being necessary that he was there because Dr. Paez (Evelyn's endocrinologist) called with the results from her lab around 4pm. Evelyn's pituitary glad was abnormally small and flat on the picture from the scan, which explains why she was diagnosed with GH deficiency. I asked Dr. Paez if that can change, could it grow, and she said no. Apparently as we start the GH therapy, it could unmask other problems like diabetes or thyroid issues in Evelyn. This would be punch to the stomach #3. To be honest, at that point in time, I felt like God had brought us to the edge of a cliff (yay - Missouri job, yay - healing prayer) and pushed us off. I know that's not true - but my flesh was overwhelmed and broken in a million peices!
Lillian wouldn't nurse all afternoon, and hadn't had a wet diaper since around 8am this morning. Around 5:00, we decided we better take her in before she got dehydrated (she had thrown up 2-3 times over the course of the day as well).
Sweet angel - you can tell she didn't feel well!
Dan had gotten Evelyn in bed by then, and I was exhausted beyond belief. Needing a good night of sleep so this mama can get better!! And needing a kiss from God to remind us that we are in His hands right now.
