Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!!!!! I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and prayers by so many people. My words can not express the way that it touches my heart! Each and every one of you are very precious to our family. I haven't cried at all since we were on the drive over here, and I could easily let loose because of your lovingkindness.
God has been so good to us!!!!! His peace that surpasses understanding is amazing! We got some sleep last night and are awaiting the doctors. The NICU is closed right now, so we can't see Janie Beth until 8. I am doing ok with leaving her in God's most of the time. I am a little anxious for the doctor's report this morning. I am looking forward to holding her when I am able.
Before I order breakfast, I will share a funny birth story with you. We knew that I had a lot of fluid, but WOW!!!!! When the doctor broke it, it started to come out, and then someone turned on the fire hose! I even saw a little fountain while laying down. The doctor freaked out! :) I have not had my regular OB because he is out of town, and he failed to mention my massive amount of fluid to the new doc. The used the blankets on the bed to try to absorb the fluid, and they also had to mop the floor! Everyone declared that it was disgusting. The doctor was completely freaked and he jumped back and ran to the door flaring his arms for some help. Men!! Even the noise of it gushing out was pretty funny. I even had more after Janie Beth was born. There were probably at least 3 gallons in there. Unbelievable!
We will be updating throughout the day. Your continued prayers are so appreciated and welcomed. We don't know what this journey holds, but we know that God walks before us, beside us, and behind us. He is exactly what Janie's name means: God is gracious!!! I am so thankful that He is here and bigger than any doctor.
I love you all!!
