Change of plans

I ask not for a lighter burden, but for broader shoulders. Jewish Proverb

Something has come up that means (worst case scenario) that my second grandbaby might be born way prematurely. He’s not due until the beginning of March, so we are praying that it won’t happen for many, many weeks. The mom will probably be on bed rest until he’s born, and grandson is staying with us. With an already crazy work schedule to finish up my assignment, I need to shuffle things around quite a bit to take care of both young and older ones. Right now I’m just stressed and worried and sad, but I’ll be back as soon as things settle down.



Please do include a tiny little boy in your prayers.

  5. Sorry to read about the difficult pregnancy. I'll keep my fingers crossed that the little guy enters this world in March 2012 - or at least not too many weeks earlier !!

  7. Sending good thoughts!!! I understand where you are! I had 10 weeks of bed rest with my second and My Mom was a life saver!!! I had a 3 year old at the time. My early boy is now 21 and wonderful!

    Hang in there, your daughter is lucky to have you!

  12. I vår ålder kallas vi för att befinna sig i "sandwichåldern" . Vi ska räcka till för vår egen familj, våra tonåringar OCH våra gamla föräldrar.
    Tuff sits just nu för dig.
    Tänker på dig var kväll då jag går till sängs.......en lite tröst kan det kanske vara....

  14. I will pray for her. I had an incompetent cervix and spent almost 4 months in bed with my second daughter. I had a fantastic outcome since she ended up coming a week late, but the delivery was very fast as in less than 30 minutes in the hospital. The fear I felt was almost overwhelming, but I had loving friends and family that stayed by my side for the whole ordeal. Stick by her and just keep reminding her that you love her. One of the things I hated hearing most was "It is not your fault." My concept was that if it wasn't my fault why did everyone keep saying that.
