I read an amazing blog (in addition to all of yours) that chronicles the life and death of one special little boy. Stacy's blog was one of the first blogs I found after losing Alyssa-Joy. She recently had a rainbow baby Eliana. During the days leading up to Eliana's delivery, she would ask her readers to pray for a specific thing. I loved this idea then, and I love this idea now. I am going to be just a little selfish and ask you all to the the same thing for me.

There are 5 days left until the abdominal cerclage. I am excited for now, but know that on the morning of I will be *freaking* out! Dr. Rod.riguez called me this afternoon to go over the specifics. We are to arrive at the hospital a 6:00 am Tuesday morning, do the necessary blood work (cbc panel only), meet with all 3 Dr.'s who will go over the procedure with me again, and be rolled into the OR at 8:00 am. Surgery will last approximately 2 hours (or less, or more).

Following Stacy's idea, everyday I will be asking you to pray for a specific area. We know that the fervent prayers of the righteousness availeth much, and that our prayers will never return unto us void.
Today (this afternoon), I ask that you please pray for our peace of mind. Pray that we cast whatever fears or doubts we have to our heavenly father. Pray that we will be comforted and reminded that he is orchestrating every detail and that he is still in control. Please pray with us.

Psalm 34:4
I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

Psalm 55:22
Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee.

Awaiting my expected end

  7. Marie--

    I am just so excited for you!!! You have been on my mind the past week, knowing your TAC coming up quickly! I will definitely be praying for your peace in these next few days, and especially on the morning of the surgery. From my experience, I will tell you I was only slightly anxious and SUPEr excited that afternoon I went it. It was the most wonderful feeling knowing that my future babies were going to be safe and sound growing inside of me. No matter what, my cervix was never going to cause a problem again! I'm am going to pray this for you--excitement rather than nervousness, peace instead of anxiety.

    Love you dear friend!!
