TODAY'S THE DAY

This is Rob. Dana had her ultrasound at 9:00 this morning. Lots of shifting and changes have occurred in a 2 day period that has put Baby B, John David, in harms way. He was struggling quite a bit with blood flow...his heart was attempting to pump blood beyond it's capability causing vascular problems to the upper extremities including the heart and brain. He also had a massive necklace in place (both cords wrapped around his neck). So Dr. G decided not to wait for tomorrow, we're going down for c-section next. So obviously, we need your prayers for my wife and my baby boys to be healthy, to be fighters, to be wrapped in God's loving arms. Please pray for the doctors and nurses to make wise decisions, to be patient, and to be compassionate.

We praise God for all of you, and thank you for your help and prayers to get to this point.

Sorry about that, this is what I said...I am praying for you guys. Praying that God will continue working miracles and that those little boys will be stronger than anyone expects. I'll pray for strength for Dana (even more than she already has shown) and peace that you guys will feel the presence of the Holy Spirit with you throughout this and especially all day today.

We are praying for both of you, and for James and John David. I have called as many people as I can think of so that they may pray for you as well. Please let me know if I can help you guys out with anything today, picking up the girls, etc. We love you guys and are thinking of you.

I am praying for your family Rob. God is hearing all the prayers that have been lifted up for these boys and Dana. I am also praying for Dana and your strength in the coming days. If there is anything I or Mike can do, call.
