Prayer Request

A lot has happened this week and several people need your prayers.

Liz went to the doctor yesterday and the doctor moved up her C-Section from the 26th of February to the 23rd of February at noon. That is unless the baby decides to come early. Please remember them as they go through this exciting and nervous time.

Laura's grandmother passed away the other day. She had been battling a brain tumor for quite some time now. No one can be prepared for the death of a loved one no matter how long they've been struggling with their illness. Her grandma is now released from her illness and reunited with her Savior and family in heaven. Please remember Laura, her mother and other living family members as they grieve their loss.

A friend and Sunday School member at our church, Beth, was recently diagnosed with having cancer. I'm unclear as to where the cancer is located. Beth went through some tests yesterday and the doctors have confirmed that her lungs are clear of any cancer cells. She went on to say that she will undergo some minor surgery (outpatient) followed by radiation treatments. Her surgery is scheduled for the 4th day of March. She is in good spirits and would appreciate your many many prayers during this scary time in her life.

My heart stopped shortly after I came into Living Room with my breakfast, turned on Fox & Friends and saw breaking news that a plane had crashed. The crash killed all 49 people on the plane, plus 1 person on the ground. Of course, seeing this scene flashed horrible memories of 911. The first thought that went through my mind was "is this another terrorist attack?" I think they are ruling that the crash was caused by really bad winds. It's horrible anyway it happened. Please remember these victims' loved ones.

Thanks for the prayers. It is a stressful time, but we are almost there!! We have been blessed with so many helpful people. Baby has really calmed down a lot these last few days, with not nearly as many contractions. Figures, now that we are technically "term" right? haha! Pregnancy and labor is such a grey area. I can't wait till all of our little boys are safe and healthy in their mommy's arms! That will be a wonderful day. Take care! The end is near!
