Tomorrow

Monday, May 18, 2009

Tomorrow is the big day and my nerves are a mess. I've had quite a number of crying spells over the last week and I'm trying, desperately, to just relax. To tell myself "things will be fine." "this time will be different." "don't worry.". I dont seem to be a good liar these days...

After morning Mass, Peter and I met with our priest, Fr. B., who gave the annointing of the sick. As he was praying over the babies, they started to move. It was absolutely amazing. A good sign? In addition, we had signed up for a traveling Our Lady of Fatima statue. She's making her way around parish families, where you are asked to pray the Rosary each day she's in your house (a week). Guess who arrived at our house yesterday? You guessed it. The Virgin Mary. We put her in the living room, where our bed now is. It has calmed me, honestly... Providence? I'm hoping this is a sign that God is on our side, telling us that things will be fine... that this time, the stitch will make things different... that we shouldn't worry.

It's going to be a strange day tomorrow. At 1:30am ,we have Adoration until 3am (we are subbing a partial hour, which is why we are there at 1:30 instead of 2). Then, we have to leave for the hospital by 6:30 to make our 7:30am check-in time. Admission stuff and an epidural later, I'll be prepped for surgery by 9am. Pray for us... Please... Pray for your babies...

I doubt I'll post again until after the surgery. I'm finishing up the cleaning and am about ready for lunch. Once I'm downstairs, I probably wont come back upstairs for the day. Peter will move my iMac tomorrow or Wednesday (depending on when we come home from the hospital) and I'll post then.

Good luck, tomorrow. My family and I have been remembering you and yours in our prayers.
St. Dymphna is a good intercessor in regards to anxiety, so I will ask her especially to intercede for you, as well as your patron saints.
If you are interested, there is a chaplet you can say to her, which is 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary and 15 Glory Be's.
May God bless you and Peter, with His peace and strength :)

All you need to do is pray, rest, pray, rest, pray. Don't worry about your house, your bills, or any other human being besides yourself and your babies.

I'll be out here praying.

Sleep well. Peace.

Just about 20 years ago, I had my cervix stitched at 9 weeks after 2 miscarriages. Our beautiful 19 year old daughter just finished her first semester at college. I pray that your results are the same and that you will bring those two beautiful, healthy babies home with you. BTW, she had to be induced because she like it so well where she was.
