Monday Night

The appointment today turned out to be much more difficult than expected. Kristy and Howard are at the hospital becuase the sonogram showed fluid on Happy's lungs and that his umbilical cord is elevated. This means that they will be having another sonogram tomorrow and will then need to decided how to proceede. This, of course, is not how they planned the day to go. Some things to pray for- a clear decision on whether to have a c-section tomorrow or stay in the hospital and wait, many decisions on how to care for Happy once he is here, for them as they face each of these decisions, for their time with Happy once he comes, for the boys at home ( they are both somewhat under the weather), and for Kristy being away from them when they are not feeling 100%. I don't have many details to share, nor do I feel that I know exactly how to share them. I do know Kristy appreciates not having to tell this over and over. I do know that they both are thankful for your prayers.

I just found your blog and just wanted you to know that I am praying for your family, you, and Happy as you make the decisions that you have to make in the next little bit. I will be praying that God's wisdom and divine plan for Happy and your family will be made clear to you and that he will give you strength:)

Oh Kristy, my heart is pounding for you. I don't even know what to say. I wish it didn't have to be this hard. My prayer tonight is that you and Howard will be a comfort to eachother, that God would guide the doctor's decisions, and that Happy would be well, and if it isn't God's will that he would be made well, I pray for time. Time to get to experience your child for as long as you can.

God bless you and your family.

Thinking of you and will pray for your requests into the night and morning. I called you tonight, left a voice mail but got cut off. Hoping you get it. Praying for God's arms to hold you at this time. And know that His timing will be perfect, whenever that might be. Call me if and when you're up for talking. Love, Chrissy

Kristy and family,

Jody M. shared your blog link with the Ed. Services team. I am praying that God will reveal his plan for you and that the burden you are feeling will be lifted. God has a plan for every life. Happy is a much loved and very special baby boy.

Praying for you Kristy and Howard, asking the Lord to continue carrying you during this time and to give you peace in all decisions. Praying for little Happy as God holds him gently in His hands, and working out His Plan. He will bring you through.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

Kristy, Howard, & boys,

I have been thinking of you all since I read an email Val sent me last night. I can't seem to get you all off my mind and have been praying that all will be well in the end. The "unknown" is a scary thing and I can't even imagine what you must be going through right now. I pray that God will be there with you throughout everything and especially with all the decisions you and the doctors will be making.

God Bless, Nicole

Kristy, my sister in law passed your blog along to me. She remembered me saying that you and I were childhood friends. My heart is breaking for you right now. I cannot imagine the pain you are all going through. You have such a strong, solid faith, and I know that will sustain you. Sometimes, in the most dire of circumstances, God is very near and we can feel Him so closely. Please know that you are in my thoughts and heartfelt prayers. God Bless you and your family and little Happy.
