Prayer Request

I found out after my 34 week check up yesterday (which went great--baby J and I are both on track and I'm dilated .5-1 cm) that my grandmother is in the hospital in Hawaii. My Mom has 5 brothers and one of them lives there and she was visiting his family for the Christmas holidays. My uncle is a doctor and my aunt is a nurse so she could not be with a more appropriate son right now. She had emergency surgery on her twisted esophagus late Monday night. She is in ICU now sedated and expected to stay in the hospital for at least a week or so. Grandma's 86th birthday is tomorrow and I pray that she can pull through this. Baby J is her 1st great grandson (I'm the oldest of 12 grandchildren.) He is named after her late husband, my grandfather. Please keep her in your prayers the next few days.

Big Guy (husband)and I are thinking of you and your family- we know what a big time this is for you- being so near the due date and all- and to have your Grandma in the hospital must be such a source of worry- We are sending our good thoughts- I am sure she will pull through to welcome her first great grandbaby (it will be a first for my Grandma too!)I can't believe you are dialating already! does this mean I am? They didn't even check me when I went in on monday. I have my next appt on the 14th so I guess we will see what happens then. Anyway-Good luck and keep me posted on your progression! also- keeps us updated on your Grandmas recovery!
