Leaving for the Hospital
« on: February 24, 2005, 03:42:35 PM »
Hi All --

Niki is to have a C section tonight at 5:30. The doctor recommends this because baby Nicholas is around 10 lbs and my wife Niki is petite.

I humbly ask for your prayers for my wife Niki and my son Nicholas.

Prayers for Niki and baby Nicholas, that the surgery be uneventful and that God grant them many blessed and healthful years.  Prayers also for Dad, that he survive the stress and rejoice in holding his little boy.

Tom,

Congratulations to you and Niki and to baby Nicholas.  May God bless him and grant him many happy and healthy years.  And may God grant health and long years to you and Niki and grant you both the blessing to hold and pray God blessings on the children of your grandchildren's children.
