"You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created." Revelation 4:11
"How do you feel about life?" That's what the doctor asked me on Monday at the hospital after giving us the horrible news. How do I feel about life? Well, I like it. I cherish it. I want it for my baby. What kind of question is that? Well, I knew what he was getting at and ended the conversation before it began. I understand it must be doctor protocol to ask, as I guess this is one of those situations where "the mother's health is at risk" (never thought I'd be in that category!) But, please, as he is asking me the most vile question a mother could ever be asked, I look behind him at the ultrasound screen and there is our healthy, strong baby moving and waving his arms.
This is my prayer; please pray with us:
"Lord, heal my body so this baby can live. Let there be just enough fluid for this baby to develop normally. Keep us both free of infections."
