Back On My Back...


Well, I went to the doctor today. I wasn't sure what to expect. I haven't gained as much weight as i should have by this point, but my stomach was growing and I'm feeling little Vanessa move. I was excited to see her again and hear how she was growing. Unfortunately, when the doctor did the ultra sound he saw that she's not growing as much as she should be. He's put me back on bed rest and I go in two weeks to see if rest and a high protein diet has helped at all. If she hasn't we're probably going to go to a specialist and possibly deliver early.

I would love your prayers...We know that today was no surprise to God and He is knitting her together, but it's still hard knowing she's not as healthy as she should be. Please pray that we continually trust in our Savior and take all our anxious thoughts to Him. Also, that Vanessa would grow and we wouldn't have to deliver early. Elijah has also been sick these last couple weeks, so if you could pray for his health we'd really appreciate it. Friends have offered to help out, but most of them have children and I don't want him getting their children sick. Thank you. I'll keep you updated as we know things.

Please let me and Paul know if we can help out in any way -we don't have kids (that are born) yet! : ) Sorry that you can't come to dinner Friday; we'll have to reschedule when you're feeling better.

Melissa, Thanks for your prayers. I can't wait to be up and meet your little man.

Julie, Thanks so much. We would love a meal. I've actually thought a lot about you. Knowing Cade was born at thirty weeks and he's a healthy strong boy is giving me comfort.

Kathrine, Thanks, I look forward to seeing you to. We made it to Bakersfield. Elijah got sick again yesterday and spent the morning throwing up so we didn't get here til late, but he's doing better. Caleb's sister is coming to help with him.
