It’s hard to believe that in just a few short hours we should be holding our newest child, that God could possibly be good enough to bless us with another baby. It is much more than we deserve and we glory in His goodness and grace to our family.
I am very excited and a little nervous. I am astounded and thankful for all of the people who are praying for us, thank you!
We get to be at the hospital between 5 and 5:30 this morning and surgery is scheduled for 7:30, so probably by the time most of you read this we will be loving on our new little girl.
The baby continues to be transverse so Dr. V will do an ultrasound just before we head into the c-section.
Being able to plan this birth has been a blessing. Each of our oldest 3 daughters (13, 12 and 9) will have an opportunity to stay in the hospital for a time to help out and spend some one-on-one time with me and the baby. They are each looking forward to their turn and hope that I stay in the hospital a long time so they each get plenty of time.
This is a good opportunity for me to thank them because when we get home from the hospital a lot will be falling on their shoulders. They are always a huge help and blessing to us, but over the next few weeks we will rely on them even more as I recover and we all adjust to having a new little person in the house.
