Just Got a Call...

..from the mom whose baby appeared to have significant medical concerns, according to ultrasound before his birth.

She had him by C-section today, and he's in the NICU, hooked up to lots of monitors but breathing on his own. His large motor reflexes all seem normal, as he is kicking and pushing away tubes with his hands. They are doing many tests and scans on him, but she hasn't heard the results yet.

Mama is doing quite well, feeling sustained by the prayers of others and by a returning faith of her own. Her husband, though deployed now, was able to talk with her by phone throughout the day and she is grateful for that, too.

I will update when I know more. Keep those prayers coming!

Thank you, Lord, for the delivery of this small son. Sustain his life, heal his body, bless and keep his soul. Uphold his parents and strengthen his mother, body and soul, for the days ahead. Amen.

So glad I stopped by your blog this evening. I had recently read an encouraging story of a similar situation, am praying your friend's baby is blessed like this too!

Oh, I'm glad the baby is here. I pray he gets to meet his daddy. Thanks for keeping us updated, Jeannie - this family has been on my mind.
