Mighty & Possible

Flutter, flutter and a question floats through my mind …  Is that the baby? After sitting still a few moments and placing my hand on my stomach I felt the first FIRM kick I’ve been able to feel our little one deal.  Movement has continued and I know God is doing a mighty thing!

Everyday I [...]

Baby Journey Part 2: When You Don’t Know Which End Is Up

Shortly after the seizure episode that placed me in a coma and sent my world into orbit I went to church with my parents.  I knew the experience had affected me to some degree, but I wasn’t quite prepared for what was coming.  As is usually the case, at this church, I was approached by [...]

Through a curtained lens

Yesterday was yet another appointment and one more day God has given this child to live.  We are praising the Lord for that and continue to wait on Him for His best in this.  I have little new to report except that the doctor was able to take one look at my belly and say [...]

Baby Journey Part 1: May it be to Me

Marked with briars and brambles, this journey has been home to clearings infused with peace where nothing makes sense, but everything seems good.  This is the place of surrender and God enables us daily to walk the next step in that plan.  As I wait for God to reveal His purposes through this situation I [...]

Once upon an I.V.

Once upon an I.V. … yes, if stories began like that I’d be living a fairy tale.  We spent last night in the hospital, I.V. and all.  Packing quickly is not my forte I found, but we managed to get out of the house without leaving too much behind.  Nearly two hours later I was [...]


We were surprised to receive a call from the lab at the hospital today with preliminary results from the placental biopsy we had just yesterday.  Full results are pending and will not be in, we’re told, for a week and a half, but they were able to determine a few things for us.

First comments were, [...]


“I lie down and sleep; I wake again because the Lord sustains me.“ Psalm 3:5

Smiling, once again I am walking out of my dr.’s office with joy.  God is sustaining us.  Our dr. called this last weekend to let us know they were able to schedule a placental biopsy for Monday, the 14th.  (That was [...]

Frequent Flyers

One, two, three doctor appt’s., what’s becoming the weekly blood draw, and one hospital tour later I have officially been dubbed a “frequent flyer.”  All of you who have become immune to the joy of flying, take a look around and appreciate it once again.  It may be one day you’ll be grounded, as I [...]

Coma Series (4of4): Met

I became more alert toward the end of our stay, but there were still so many drugs lingering in my system that my body didn’t know how to handle them.  They produced in me much pain and I felt constantly off balance even in bed.  This proved most difficult as I was starting to see [...]

Coma Series (3of4): Transition

Transition to the ICU proved uneventful for me.  Grant continued to keep me abreast of what was going on, so good at talking to me whether I was responsive or not.  I knew he was there and it made everything easier.  I was in and out of consciousness and though I tried to sleep the [...]
