We hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas celebration with friends and family. We certainly did. We have been very busy running from one weekend to the next but now that is drawing to a close. I look at my planner and 2008 is a blank slate. This is quite the contrast in leaving 2007 behind. I am not worried about not being busy however it will be interesting to see what God has up his sleeve for our lives in the coming months. It is so much easier when we make the plans and fill in each day and quite another when the space is stark white.
I have had 2 appointments since I have last updated you and not much has occurred. They were quick appointments with no ultrasounds. Everything seems to be fine and I have one more quick appointment on the 2nd and then a more detailed one on the 7th to be certain Whitney is ready to come and meet us on the 8th. My c-section is scheduled for the afternoon of the 8th. Please be in prayer for us as we will be unable to hold her and I am sure Matt will be torn as to be with me or Whitney. She will immediately go to the NICU and her surgery for her back closure is scheduled for Wednesday morning the 9th. They anticipate that she will be in the hospital for 2 weeks and we will keep you posted as to when or if her shunt surgery will be to relieve the pressure on her brain.
Have a blessed New Years!
