For our son
« on: October 25, 2011, 07:13:13 PM »
We found out today that we are having another son! The 20 week ultrasound today showed an active and (seemingly) healthy baby boy. We were able to get all the measurements except for the spine, edge of the placenta and a clear picture of the kidneys. I will have a follow-up ultrasound to check the measurements missed in about two weeks. So far everything looks good. Please pray for my health and the health of our son. I have had some severe thyroid issues due to Hyperemesis this pregnancy, my thyroid is extremely overactive to the point that my TSH hasn't been detectable. The endo doesn't think that this is a permanent thyroid issue and that it should clear up without medication. So far I haven't gained any weight, in fact I have lost 15 lbs. so please just pray that the baby is getting enough nutrition etc given that I can barely eat.

“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either.” +Luke 6:27-29

Lord, have mercy and grant you, your little boy and whole family good health!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
