Another request

I have been floored by the number of comments we have received over the past few days.
There are no words to express how grateful we are for all the encouragement. We are so honored to have prayer after prayer lifted on our behalf of our family. We truly feel it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I wanted to give an update on where things stand right now. I have an appointment with Maternal Fetal Medicine today(Wed) at 1:00. Needless to say, I am quite anxious to meet with Dr. C. While I have remained as still as possible since Thursday, my contractions have continued and the medication did not seem to help. To further complicate a messy situation, we learned I have an infection as well. So, I am now being treated for that.

Because I have to believe in the power of prayer, I need to ask another favor. Please pray the contractions have not caused further shortening of my cervix. (did I just ask people to pray for my cervix???? I did...) With the number of contractions I have been having, this seems unlikely. But we will ask anyway! Also, pray for wisdom for each doctor on my case. We want to know that everything is being done to keep this little guy safely inside my womb!

I will let you know how things go when I get back! Thanks for your willingness to pray!

Heavenly father,
Hear our prayer. Blake and Danielle as well as all of their friends and family desire that their son will be born alive and well. Hear the desire of their hearts, Oh God. Please protect them and sustain them in these moments of fear and pain. You alone, are God and can do mighty works. We believe.
