Lily's night nurse on Monday found the cutest hospital gown with tigers on it that says, "Tired Little Tiger". It just so happens that Lily's favorite song is, "Liang Zhi Lao Hu", which means "Two Little Tigers". For the past couple of days, everyone who sees Lily comments on how cute she is, but also on her adorable hospital gown. Apparently, nobody seems to know where this hospital gown came from since the ones they have at this hospital are a pale green color.
Lily's Liang Zhi Lao Hu Hospital Gown
Hundreds of miles away, in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, is a little girl names Brooke. Brooke and Lily met in China while our families were finalizing our adoptions. We discovered that Brooke and Lily have very similar heart defects, and yesterday Brooke had her Fontan procedure done as well (which is the same open heart surgery that Lily had on Friday). You can follow Brooke's amazing journey here.
After a ridiculously scary morning for Lily, God came through with a GIANT Godwink just for us. You will never believe what hospital gown Brooke was given to wear!
Brooke's big sister Meredith told me that all of the other hospital gowns are pale green just like they are here. What are the chances that both of these special heart babies from China would be in hospitals hundreds of miles apart wearing the same "unique" hospital gown? I suppose the odds are pretty good when you serve an omnipotent God!
Jesus looked at them and said,
“With man this is impossible,
but with God all things are possible.”
