The week before I left I found out how caring, loving, and giving the people around me are! My coworkers surprised me with a sweet little going away prayer and very generous offering that will help Shawn and I SO much! I was floored and blown away by it all. And not only that but they have been cooking for my little family every night that I have been gone as well. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about how much these ladies (and 1 guy) are supporting me, praying for me and my family, and just showing how loving people can be in difficult times. I am really just speechless! I cant find the right words to express my appreciation for all of them and everything they have done and are doing for me. I definitely plan on returning the favor when I am able. The very next day the mothers from my morning class brought me a HUGE basket filled with goodies. Again, I could never say thank you enough to really express how much that touched me and how thankful I am!
Leaving was hard but I know Sunni is where she needs to be to have the best chance possible. I had all of my appointments today and this is the story in a nutshell: She only weighs 5 pounds, 14 ounces---which I thought was alarming since she was 5.2 a little over 2 weeks ago. I just knew she was over 6 lbs. Her heartbeat was 120 which again made me a little nervous but they were not worried...... And FINALLY, the BIG NEWS is that I will stay the night in the hospital Sunday, October 7th and they will induce early morning on the 8th! So we should see Little Miss Sunni in 10 days! I can not believe the time is already so close but I am so ready to get this started and meet my little girl. CDH has changed my life and although I really despise it I can not change it and I am ready to see what God has planned for me, Sunni, and my family.
Please keep praying for us. I know God is listening. Please pray for her heart and lungs and a safe delivery. Pray that things go smoothly and she gets ventilated and up to NICU with no major issues. Thank you in advance. I know there are thousands of you praying out there and that is so comforting!
