I was so excited about writing this post! Today I was going to the doctors for my 12 week (although I was 13 weeks) prenatal visit!! Yay!!! I was going to announce it and share the good news (plus the reason I am so behind in posts and things - I had been feeling so sick!).....however, I don't get to write that post!
Instead, I have to write the post that says that when the doctor tried to find the heartbeat, he couldn't and after 3 ultra sounds, it was determined that our newest little family member had actually gone to live in heaven a few weeks ago. I had stopped feeling sick a few weeks ago and had worriedly called the doctor (as we had a similar experience before we had Channing) but they said not to worry, it was normal to stop feeling sick around that time.............sad of course that I'll never get to kiss those cute little toes and hear it's "little lamb" cry.....but rejoicing in the fact that right now, our precious baby is being held by its creator!! AMAZING!!!
Some cool things have happened today too......two people that know us but we're not particularly close to had randomly let us know that the Lord had asked them to pray for us today and they had! I am so glad for their willingness to listen to the Lord - for me, it just shows that God knew what a rough day this was going to be and He already had people praying for us!
Another very cool thing that happened is that I was sitting on my bed with Sully tonight and he pointed to my belly and said "baby"......so I said to him "the baby's gone to live with Jesus" and he VERY CLEARLY said "Jesus here!" and pointed right next to us - out of the mouth of babes!!!
I have to have surgery on Wednesday, so I'd appreciate some prayer for that. We also found out today that Sully has asthma! (what a day, I know!) so the first few treatments have been particularly traumatic for him.....please pray that he gets used to it and it gets a little easier.
