Anxiously awaiting D-day

The bags and snacks are packed, the car seat is in place, the snoedel has been cuddled with, and the camera is ready. I really can’t believe how fast our date has come. We are both anxious and excited.

We’ve talked to our specialists and doctors to try to be as prepared as one can be. We are really praying for a safe delivery and positive results for what we are dealing with as far as the spina bifida. We’ve been waiting since Feb. 1 for these results.

We have been so fortunate to have Akron Children’s team behind us all of the way. The questions about how severe have wavered here and there, so we’ve ultimately determined we will just wait and see. Believe me, I am a need-to-know person, so I’ve driven myself crazy.

We are praying for are a safe delivery, Peanut’s respiratory status, a covered low back lesion, low hydrocephalus (water on the brain), kidney function, and transportation from Akron General to Akron Children’s. We are also praying for our health care team. I was reading a devotional from Max Lucado a couple weeks ago that talked about praying for healing and found a quote that will stick with me. “God, would you put on the surgical gloves first?” We firmly believe God has been with us through our journey, and will continue to be with us.

Please continue to pray for us as we embark on a new chapter of being parents. We want to be the stewards that God desires for His sweet child.
