Already a Miracle

Hello gang!

I have been busy all week and I am exhausted! I have said it before and I will keep saying it, I have waaaayyyy too many responsibilities at work. Next school year (God's willing) I will just teach. I need a mental break.

Little Sophia is doing well. I marvel at the miracle that she is. Mom discovered that she was spotting (which eventually led to heavily bleeding), but as usual, they tell you "its normal". Well, after not feeling the baby move and the bleeding continued, she bypassed her Dr.'s office and went to L&D. The nurse used the Doppler and discovered that Sophia's heart rate was extremely slow. An ultrasound was ordered, and the Dr;'s discovered that the placenta was tearing away and Sophia was in distress.
Mom was rushed to the OR and an emergency C-Section was done.
Sophia is a miracle. If mom had waited a couple hours, possible minutes, Sophia would not be here. This family would be experiencing another loss, and another heart broken mother would have joined us. There is a lot to be said about a mother's intuition. Had she gone to her Dr.'s office, she probably would have ended up waiting which could have ended tragically. Mom and dad are holding up well, but please continue to keep them all in your prayers.

Well hubby was called in for a meeting today with the Regional Director, his boss, and a few other colleagues from administration. It was determined that his boss had no grounds to place him on administrative leave nor threaten to fire him. The gentleman did not apologize, but Larry let him know there were no hard feelings. Despite this, the gentleman said that he will be watching Larry and the first time he slips up, he is out the door.
I am proud of my honey and the way he responded. He assured the gentleman that he has always done his job with integrity and he will continue to do so. As for the four days that he has been off, they have to pay him for it.
Ladies, your prayers worked! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! God is good. Please continue to pray for the gentleman that he leads with integrity and fairness.

I dislike the woman that I have become. I was never a worrier before losing my babies. I don't even know why I was worried. I serve a God who supplies every need. We also have our emergency fund that should cover us for a couple months should the need ever arise. I have to remind myself that I am not in control, our Creator is.

Awaiting my expected end.


  1. Hooray! Thrilled that Baby Sophia continues to thrive and do well. And pleased that hubby will be compensated for time off, and was NOT fired. Continuing to keep his boss in my prayers...may he learn the importance of being fair.

  2. Marie,

    I don't dislike the woman you've become...I "Admire" the woman you've become :) You exude love, kindness and are a ray of sunshine to others. Maybe not the old you, but a new improved version. Besides, we all have flaws, and they become aparent when someone wrongs the one we love most.

    So happy Sophia is doing well and I pray for her daily. Like her Mommy, we all have to listen to our Mommy radar and be advocates for ourselves. I don't hesitate to get a 2nd opinion these days, as I am in charge of ME!

    Hugs & Love...prayers too,

  3. God has been good, and He does supply our needs, even when we forget that. I am glad Sophia is doing well, what a true miracle.

  4. So happy to hear that Sophia is doing well and that mom is okay.

  5. I am thrilled that Sophia is doing so well. Praise God!!! And your husband. What an honorable man. Praise God for him as well!

  6. I have to remind myself of this everyday; the control thing I never had an issue with, or so I thought... I completely understand your new "worrying" state, and I think it is completely natural given all that you have been through, and continue to go through. Hope you have had a good weekend! Will keep Sophia in my prayers.

  7. I feel the same way, I have never worried like this before...and I don't have the energy to do it anymore! I need to use my brain for more productive things!
    I'm so glad things worked out with Larry and I hope that the Regional Director can help if the new boss tries anything else!
    Thinking of you!

  8. Hello there.

    I just found your blog from another blog I keep with. I just wanted to say I am so sorry for your losses. Your children are just beautiful!!! We just lost our son a few months ago at 18 weeks.


  9. Marie, I am so glad that all worked out for hubby!!

  10. I'm so glad that Sophia was delivered in time! Thank you God!

    Your hubby is so awesome. He has handled the whole situation gracefully and I commend him for that!! I don't think many men could do the same.
