Well, we are home from the hospital! FINALLY!! It's been a long week :-) Things are good. I still have to take it pretty easy. I can be on my leg every day, but I need to sit and elevate it often. I am on Lovenox, a blood thinner, that I give myself in the form of a shot twice daily. Not the most exciting thing I have ever had to do, but I can do it. I also switched from my family practice doctor to a high risk pregnancy doctor at the hospital. I will go in weekly to have ultrasounds done on the baby to make sure she's still doing alright. They will watch the blood clot as well. I feel much better knowing I am with a doctor that specializes in this field and one that has dealt with patients in this situation before. I know the baby and I will be well taken care of. I think that's it. Thank you so much for all the support, encouraging notes, phone calls and visits, and of course PRAYER! Thank you for praying. There was a point when I didn't think I'd get to go back to work, and I start again next week! Praise the Lord! But most importantly, praise the Lord that our baby is doing fine. We love and thank you all.

Just wanted to write a quick note and ask for prayer for Steph and our little girl. Steph had to be admitted to the hospital on Friday with a blood clot in her left leg. It is fairly rare (about 2% of pregnancies) but not unheard of. She will be having a little vacation in the hospital until Wednesday or Friday. The baby is perfectly fine (still crazy in the womb) and mom feels fine too. Please pray that everything continues to heal correctly and pray for mom's spirits. Thanks in advance for your prayers.
