St. Patty's Day baby!

We got the phone call around 11:30ish today...

Tonight I am to report in to CHOP around 6:00-7:00. The induction is a two step process but tomorrow is when Gwenyth will most likely to make her appearance.

So many feelings right now...I can't wait to hold her if only for a moment before they have to take her for the echo and any other testing and hook her up to whatever it is they plan to hook her up to.

I know Lillian will be okay...but those of you who know me, I never do well in the time before I know we will be parted...and of course this is a bit more than a few days and nights out of town, our life together is changing and the transition will be more challenging than the typical adjustment to the "new baby". Becca and my mom are so wonderful with her and for that I'm very grateful, but my heart is still heavy for all that I know Lil will have to process in the days to come.

Pray for a strong baby girl who will be ready for the doctors trained hands and have nothing else to complicate her situation.

Very soon we will know for sure, the anatomy of her heart and have a final diagnoses and we will also know what day she will undergo surgery...

Thank you - to everyone who is keeping her in their prayers - I am overwhelmed by the care and support we have received and am so appreciative.


  1. OH! I am all a-flutter :) Happy and anxious and everything all at once! Can't wait to get a call from Myers! (MYERS!! CALL ME ASAP once the princess arrives :)

  2. I am thinking about you and praying for you all. I love you.

  3. Laura- I wish I could hug you and pray with you right now. God is in control. Of the big stuff and what may look like the smaller stuff. He'll be with each of you during this time, helping you and Myers make wise decisions, holding and mending Gwen's heart in His hands, and comforting Lillian when she misses you.
    Love you sweet friend!

  4. Oh, I can't wait to hear about her birth! May God keep your hearts and minds calm, and trusting. You're all in His capable hands. Praying for you!

  5. Hi - popping in from Herb of Grace... please know though we have never met (I don't think..) You and your baby and family are in my prayers and thoughts these days!

  6. We'll be praying for you & your family! I hope that Gwen is a strong little girl.

    D&D is at my house tonight. I'll make those heathens take a break from their dragon slaying to send some good thoughts your way.

  7. Praying for the details of the delivery...


  8. I am so excited for you and will be thinking of you!!! Love you lots! Be strong, YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!

  9. We are still praying every single day... I wish I could give you a big ol' hug right now.


Ten years loom and as always seems to be the case, I find myself struggling the most in the days ahead of the anniversary  - be it her birt...
