Heavy Heart *update*

Miss Lili arrived weighing 7 lbs. 14 oz. and 21 inches long. She was taken back for an EKG, and I'm still waiting to hear results. I hear she's beautiful, and can't wait to see pictures.

Layla Grace needs our prayers too. She is a beautiful little girl that has Stage 4, neuroblastoma. To read her story, will break your heart. Please keep this family in your prayers.

We should all hug our kids a little tighter today. So many 'not-fairs' happening this week. Not to me, but to others around me...some I know, some I don't. However, they are all weighing on my heart and I wish I could do something to relieve their stress, their fear, and their grief.

First off, so many of us bloggers have been following sweet, sweet Kayleigh. Kayleigh is now tube free, pain free, and forever peaceful. Please say a prayer for her parents and brother and sister. I can't even begin to scratch the surface of what that grief would feel like.

Secondly, my best friend in the whole world, Ryan is delivering Miss Lili today. She went for her 38 week check up today, and Lili is trying to throw us all for a loop. They heard a funky heart beat yesterday, and the Peri-Cardiologist said it is fetal tachycardia. I think the good news is that it wasn't there last week, so HOPEFULLY it is just Lili's way of saying, "Get me out of here!" Please say a prayer that Lili's little heart will return to it's normal beat, and that Ryan will remain healthy and calm. I know I would be a nervous wreck.

Thirdly, another real-life friend and fellow blogger, Missy is having her baby today was supposed to go in this morning to be induced, but they are now in a holding pattern as it is a full moon and L&D is full. The Owens' Crew knows all to well that frustration. Anyhow, Miss Ellison is petite so the doctors are keeping an eye on that, as well as Missy's fluid levels. We are praying for Ellison to arrive healthy, and for mommy and daddy's patience!

Another prayer request is for our dear friend Steve Brewer. He has been in the hospital now, going on 3 weeks. He had double by pass surgery almost 2 weeks ago and although he is feeling better, there has been a pesky little infection in the wound. Thank God that it is not staph, but none-the-less, he is ready to get home and further down the road to recovery!

That's all for now, I am going to try and go focus on some work, but that seems highly unlikely.

Thanks for the prayers. We are in a hotel room by the hospital hoping to get called in tonight. If not, we won't have to make a long drive tomorrow.
