Part 15: Complete Healing and Our Serenity Now

Serenity was released from the hospital for the last time on February 18, just five days after her first surgery. Before we left, The surgeon reduced her medication to only propranolol three times a day and lasix once a day.

We since have never returned to that city. We have scheduled all of our follow-up appointments with our local cardiologist. He firmly stands with us declaring a miracle of God. His nurse tells Reni's story to provide hope for others in similar circumstances.

A couple of weeks after returning home, her cardiologist took her off the propranolol and then a couple of months later took her off the lasix as well. Our daughter is completely medication free!!! I had the time of my life pouring them all down the sink, as well as sleeping past 4 am.

Our Serenity Now!

Serenity is by far the most active out of our five children. She is constantly keeping us on our toes. God places a fight in the ones who he knows will need it later for survival. Now once they are well, that doesn't mean that fight goes away. As a matter of fact, I think it gets stronger with age. :) She has quite the little personality.

It has been two years now and Serenity remains very healthy. As a matter of fact, at her last check up, her Cardiologist said, "Go home, you're too healthy to be here!" God is so good and He always remains faithful to His promises.

God directed our steps throughout our journey. He placed every person in our path. He orchestrated every detail, constantly reminding us He was in control.

God taught us how to trust Him in all aspects of His healing power. He miraculously delivered her from a disease that no man could cure and blessed us with wonderful doctors who served as His instruments using the wisdom He has given them. In doing so, He reminded us to rely on Him and Him alone as our source. We are so very grateful! For this reason we offer Him praise and thanksgiving! We rejoice in the love of our Mighty Savior!

Serenity's name also continues to prove itself worthy! For the peace surrounding her life continues to touch the hearts of those struggling to find hope! She is a Living testimony of that hope. The kind of hope we can only find in Christ Jesus!

Jesus suffered to provide Healing For Everyone, regardless of the who they are, what they have done, or the circumstances surrounding them! No one is out of the Master's reach! There is HOPE for every man, woman and child! For our God is THE healer - The Great Physician!
