A Year Ago Today . . .

A Year Ago Today

I sat nervously in the waiting room at the Perinatologist.

A Year Ago Today

I was called into the ultrasound room and patiently lay there with goop on my belly as the technician checked on our baby girl.

A Year Ago Today

Tears filled my eyes, and I hung tight to my husband as we were told to head over to Labor and Delivery seven weeks early.

A Year Ago Today

I had my first of two steroid injections to help develop Kam's little lungs.

A Year Ago Today

I said good-bye to my husband and daughters as they left for home while I stayed in the hospital.

A Year Ago Today

Was the start of a very long two weeks of waiting, worry, prayer, and ultimately a miracle only God could have provided.

Oooooh, I got chills reading this. I remember going through this myself...the nerves, the anxiety, the never-ending prayers.

Thank goodness we both have happy endings....isn't it amazing when you think how far you've come!

So scary! I went into preterm labor at 30 weeks and it was frightening!

Glad I know how the story turned out and that you are not going through that right now...it is very scary when you are smack dab in the middle of it all. Oh that baby is so sweet I can't wait to read her birthday post:)

It's such blessing to have miracles in our lives, isn't it?
