Today has had many ups and downs but I think we are going to finish on a good note (unless Gaines decides not to cooperate on tonight's monitoring at 9). My parents set up a web cam tonight and we were able to see Reed and Jack! We don't have a camera here so they couldn't see us (not sure if that is good or bad) but it was so good to see them. Reed waved at us and did a few tricks like pat his head, point at his nose, etc. It did my heart good to see that little face tonight.
Today was a scary day for me. I pray that it was a fluke and that tonight's monitoring goes well. I've been so focused on just making it through each day that I don't really let myself think about Gaines too much. I just really can't because I get so scared. I know that whatever happens it will be God's will. In my heart I know that all of this is happening for a reason and whatever God has in store for us, will be for the glory of God. That said, I pray that God's will is for Gaines to be born healthy.
Interestingly, our SS class sent us a care package today and in it among other awesome things (like new pajamas!) was a little angel painting titled "God's Will". I love it and already have one other by the same artist. I just think that it was really appropriate that I got it today. Along with that package we also got a gift from some of my family members back home with lots of homemade goodies. Let me just tell you that I've been into those today. I also got a new book that I hope to be bored enough tomorrow to get started on. We had three visitors today, I never knew we were so popular in DC. They all brought much appreciated items as well. We are so thankful for all of our visitors and our gifts.
I feel this little guy kicking around there...pray that he just hangs on a little (or lot) longer. They are about to do my monitoring now so pray that he has settled down and we can get a good nights sleep. Got to run for now...
