Prayer request

There is another little girl who is due just a few days after C.N.B. is but she will be coming much earlier... As many of you know, I have a cousin with Cystic Fibrosis so that is something near to our family... in this CF situation though, it is a family from the outer banks, Nate and Tricia. Tricia is 24 weeks pregnant and has CF. She was due for a lung transplant and opted not to take it when she found out she was pregnant. Due to complications, she is currently in surgery to be placed on a ventilator and if her body does OK with it, she will have a c-section on Friday. If she does not do well with it, their daughter Gwyneth Rose will be born later today, much sooner than her delivery date. We well know the risks related to preemies so we ask that you join us in keeping this family in your thoughts and prayers. The link is CFHusband.Blogspot.Com if you want to read along...

On our end, we are still moving along well and feel very blessed to be at 26 weeks!!! Goal date for us is a week from today so we are in the short runs now!!!! Baby is a bit wild at times and I am having a hard time sleeping. I am a back sleeper so this whole sleep on your side is hard for me to do. The last week has left me with horrible back pains but all in all, I will take whatever I need to in order to get her here safe... in all honesty my back pain is nothing compared to what some other mommies in waiting have to go through (see above!!)
