Thursday's sonogram

Kristy asked me to let everyone know that she is back in the hospital. The sonogram today indicated that she would need to deliver now rather than wait until Monday. As of right now they will do the c section tomorrow morning. They are doing another sonogram at 9pm. The results of that may cause them to move the delivery up to tonight. I don't have lots of details. I know that the boys are at home with good friends and will be throughout the night. Ben is still not feeling well. So we will pray for them and their caregivers as well as how and when they will meet Happy and all that goes with that meeting. You all know what Kristy has asked us to pray for, and are doing just that. God knows what they need now and will need. We will keep asking Him to provide for their needs through His power. I will let you know as soon as I hear anything new.

Praying that God will wrap you and Howard in His arms tonight and bring you the peace and comfort that can only come from Him.
I will also keep Ben and Luke in my prayers.
I'm so sorry you are having to go through this right now.

Will be thinking about all of you and praying throughout the night! Know that this is Gods plan and in his hands. Monday wasn't the day. And God knew that all along. With love and prayers, Chrissy

Kristy- I don't think I've ever prayed as much as I have in the last 2 days. You, Happy and the rest of the family are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you're able to spend good quality time with precious Happy when he's born. Make some wonderful memories and please give him a kiss from all your blogger friends. Happy is such a blessing to all of us...

Kristy-

Although this wasn't your plan for how things were going to go... God knows how everything is to progress and He is with you in this very moment and those that are to come. I know how quickly plans can change so I pray that He has prepared your heart this evening.

I am and will be praying fervently for y'all as you await the arrival of your precious 4th son! May the Lord grant you peace, strength, wisdom, a calm heart, and thanks, among so many other things. I will be praying for Ben and Luke at home and especially for wisdom for the doctors and staff caring for you. Many prayers tonight and tomorrow!

Love and in prayer,
Kenzie

Melody said...

Kristy, I am praying for you tonight. I pray that God gives you peace about His timing, and strength to endure whatever comes. I also pray that you are able to wait until tomorrow to meet precious Happy, so you are able to try and rest tonight.

I am praying for Howard, as I'm sure he is concerned for his sweet wife as well as his boys. I pray he is able to rest tonight as well, for you will certainly rely on his strength and support for the next few days and weeks to come.

I pray that Luke will be a support system, even in his young age, to both you and Howard, as well as Ben and Happy.

I pray that Ben begins to recover from his illness, and will be healthy and ready to meet his baby brother.

And I pray that Happy snuggles extra close to his soft womb tonight. I pray you feel him kick all night long, and enjoy every touch of him. I pray that the delivery is smooth, and you have a wonderful time meeting your special son.

Praying, praying, praying!!

Lisa said...

We're here too Kristy & Howard. Praying for you all, and for everyone involved in the arrival of sweet Happy.

Love,

Dear Bolte Family -
I am praying diligently for you and your precious unborn son. Your verse, "Be still and know that I am God", is one that I have claimed many times for myself and my children. I praise God as He pours out upon you a sense of peace and joy as you embrace all of your boys. May God as our Heavenly Father provide you with all that you need - today, tomorrow and forever. Blessings to each of you. Lynne B.

I found your blog a little while ago from a message you left on the Leino's site, and have been checking in regularly. I just wanted you to know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers today, and over the coming days. Trusting that little Happy will be delivered safely and that it won't be long before he's in your arms for a big cuddle.
With love and prayers from Cardiff, UK.

Dear Kristy,

I just read the email that was sent to me late last night on your behalf. I will be praying for you today as you await the birth of your 4th little boy, Happy! I know this was not what your plan would have been but I do know there is comfort in knowing the Lord has everything in His control and He will carry you through every minute in the upcoming hours.

I will also be praying for the hearts of your other 2 boys, strength for your extended family members and wisdom for the doctors and nurses that will be taking care of you today.

I will also pray that you put aside any fears that might come and just "live in the moment" and cherish every minute you are blessed with. I so admire the strength you have showed throughout this pregnancy, realizing you have been through this before with Issac. I know the Lord will use you and your family in a mighty way - thank you for showing families that no matter the outcome LIFE, NO MATTER HOW LONG OR HOW SHORT, IS PRECIOUS!

Love, Yvette Hostetter

You've been on my mind - more than you know. I pray that everything goes will with your c-section and that you are able to hold Happy in your loving arms.

Thanks for the update. I'll be patiently waiting for yet another.

God Bless, Nicole

Bri said...

My friend Emily (Miller Grace's momma) asked I visit your site and pray for your family. I'm on my face praying on Happy's behalf. I pray you find comfort in knowing so many have bowed their heads, fallen to their knees, or are on their faces while lifting your family in prayer. Praying God's glory, His grace, peace, ane love are more evident now than ever before! I love the name Happy, it says so much with just 5 letters!

Thinking of you all, knowing that these next few days will be filled with all sorts of emotions, no matter the outcome. May you feel the presence of the Lord and be blessed by those around you. Praise Jesus for sending that wonderful nurse back to serve you during this time.

Can't wait to see him and to be intorduced to him with his name...even thoughhe will always be "Happy" to us here on the blog.
