An Uneventful Day

Sunday, November 21, 2010

November 21st, 2 years ago, was rather uneventful.  My water had broken, but labor didnt start.  A friend of mine, who was pregnant and a few weeks behind me, visited.  My room was switched around due to construction on the ward.  All in all, pretty uneventful.  Dr. B. visited before leaving and promised that, if I were still pregnant and Alex still had fluid come Monday, he'd buck the system and put in a cerclage with the hopes of getting me to that line in the sand of 24 weeks.  It was a day of hope.  The ultrasound showed a happy, moving baby in amniotic fluid, in spite of my membranes prematurely rupturing.

I prayed a lot that day.  I prayed for the weekend.  I prayed for a moving baby.  I prayed for just another 24 hours with him.  Any time wouldnt be long enough, but please, I prayed, just another day...

I've been thinking about you A LOT lately. I can't do anything in person to help you, I know . . . but please know that you are being thought of and prayed for, as are all of your children.
