A happy birthday, indeed

A happy birthday!

Yesterday was Jonelle's 24th Birthday. Here she had almost died two days before, but yesterday, with the magnesium sulfate out of her system [magnesium sulfate is a neuro-muscular transmission blocker and vasodilator used to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of convulsions from eclampsia], she seemed bright and chipper and as energetic as I can imagine anyone could be who has lost 1.5 liters of blood, who has undergone major abdominal surgery, who is adjusting to life with a newborn, and is still suffering from high blood pressure (150/105). . . .

It was good to see her and wish her Happy Birthday.

I am a very happy dad.

Thank you, Lord, for preserving my daughter's and granddaughter's lives.
