48 left

Another good day. Still in the upper 30's. All Dr. B could do was laugh...again. He doesn't know what to think about me but will gladly take the good report.

The little guy was showing off today. He stuck his tongue out at us repeatedly. It was hilarious. The sonographer was cracking up the whole time. It was fun to watch in real time. She took a few stills. If you think 4-D pics are creepy, you should see the 2-D of him with his tongue out!! I will spare those that spook easily this time! He was doing a lot of practice breathing today, which is good. Blake hasn't been able to make my appointments lately so he had not seen him in a while. He was surprised by how much bigger the little fellow looks. His cheeks have filled out and his arms and legs appear to have more "meat" on them compared to when Blake saw him last! We will get an estimated weight on Monday. We're hoping he will be over 3 pounds by then. Pushing 4 would be even better!

If all goes well Monday, I will cut back to once a week appointments. I may even be approved to take a little outing for an hour or so via wheelchair! So, lets hope things are nice and quiet over the weekend!

It is crazy to think this little guy will be here in 48 days or less!!! Obviously the closer to 48 the better! That is the 37 week point and they say they won't let me go any longer than that. Wow...that doesn't seem that far away...

All we can say is...you are a true testament to the power of prayer. By your faith, you have strengthened ours.

This little boy has already had a powerful influence for his Lord....if that isn't a Prolife statement, I don't know what is!

God Bless him...and his parents. God will be using him - and you to help so many...us included.

The prayers continue....
