One week ago...

I became a mom for the second time! I received my little 4 lb gift 8 and a half weeks early, but one look at that tiny face makes all the hardships to come worth it! I'm slowly recovering from my emergency c-section, but keep over doing it in favor of visiting with my little miracle that is an hour away in an isolette at Scottish Rite children's hospital in Atlanta. Been very sore and busy this past week. And I'm off to pump some good stuff for my baby boy, Matthew Ian. Can't post too much for now, but I'll be back as soon as possible.
Here's a link to his birth story from a baby site I journal on for him to read one day: http://www.babycrowd.com/jr/online/krfm2003/

Please keep my precious bundle of joy in your prayers. We have a long road ahead of us, but have come a long way already.

You're in my prayers esp. now as he has made his debut!!

Congratulations to the three (now four) of you, and welcome to the world, little Matthew Ian!

(HUGS) CONGRATULATIONS!!

Sorry I have been out of the loop recently, though, compared to you I have no excuses!!

That's tremendous news. I started clapping at the kitchen table and then realized everyone else in the house was still sleeping! LOL!

Talk to you soon!

Thanks for posting on my blog. I just want to give you some encouragement. The NICU is a tough place but with a 32 weeker, you should be in good shape. Take one day at a time and don't sweat the small stuff.

Preemies are very special little ones. Every moment is a miracle!

God Bless your Family

I just said a prayer for your son Matthew Ian. Liz(my wife) and I know a little about craving prayers for our children. We would never be without them, but we could never cope without praying for them and knowing God hears when we do. Blessings.
