    Julie, thank you so much for your prayers they are appreciated.

    As things were getting ready to start I was so nervous and as I prayed I remembered all of the people who were praying for me and God’s peace just washed over me.

    The c-section itself was a WONDERFUL experience.

    Thank you and the rest of your family for the prayers. Just before things began (and I was really, really nervous) I reminded myself of all those who were praying for me and that gave me so much comfort.

    Isabella’s birth was an amazing gift.

    Congratulations! She is beautiful. I pray for a speedy recovery for mom. I have had 3 c-sections (I will have another one in December). My best recoveries were the 2 that I got up as soon as possible and got off of IV pain med and onto something like Percocet.

    Kimberly @ Raising Olives Reply:

    Thank you Susan.

    I should give you a prize for getting closest on the stats guess. How about an invitation to Bella’s baptism that you won’t be able to accept because Steve will be preaching?

    Thanks for your prayers.
