Goodnight from Ashley's Room. Today has been a wonderful day. Ashley was awake most of the day (probably too much) and played and entertained us all. She felt good enough today to sit up and open her Christmas presents. I just thanked God and praised Him as I watched her tiny hands reach up and tear the paper. I was just in awe of His power when I saw her so close to death and struggle so hard just yesterday. It was truly incredible to see how quickly she has come back from yesterday's struggles. Ashley's struggles and triumphs have taught me so much about God and I have grown so much in my own personal walk with Him. Today was just another example to me of God's grace and His power. I know so many have you have been praying for our Gherkin and it has been amazing to watch as God answered those prayers today. I know I have said this many times before but again I would like to thank you for your prayers for Ashley and for my family. Thank you for your comments and guestbook entries as we draw so much strength from them. Thank you for continuing to come back and be a part of Ashley's Story.
