JOYfilled Family, you can get a printable novena card by clicking on her link! She did a beautiful job!
It starts tomorrow, the feast of St Andrew and goes til Christmas Eve!
This year, I decided to do the Immaculate Conception Novena too...click on it on my sidebar and you can
join me!! If you sign up, you can receive daily emails with the prayers, I really love what this man did to start these online novenas.
This one started this morning and I am praying for such personal things right now and am so emotional
that I cried through the whole thing! Yesterday and today, my patience are set on very low and my tears are
set on very high. I'm a blubbering baby right now.
We did get some good news last night. The Perinatologist (sp?) called last night, personally, from our
hospital here in town. He said there is no reason the baby couldn't be delivered here! We have a Urologist that comes up from the Twin Cities and would be here to do the tests needed when the baby is born.
It is all dependent on the fact that so far, the baby's right kidney is doing fine. If that changes, then it might change as far as where we deliver. This is such a blessing to find out one of my many questions. I did also
find out that the baby will be in the hospital longer than I will. Mostly because of the cleft lip/palate, because of feeding issues, learning how to suck for the baby and learning how to feed, for us. There will also be lots
of tests done because of the kidneys.
So much to pray for and so much to be thankful for, all at the same time.
My thoughts and worries are still the same with a few added things, like how do I go home and try to manage a family at home and a baby in the hospital, when in my heart of hearts, I won't want to leave the hospital
at all? I did go through this with my first baby, (he was a preemie) but, there were no others at home to
worry about. I only went home to sleep and pump breastmilk (because the nurses forced me to)
I feel like such a drama queen with all this deep stuff. I will get some more light hearted posts done soon!
Until then, will you join me in either of these novenas?
Thank you all again for all your precious prayers, they mean the world to me. I send my prayers back to you
for graces and blessings in your lives.
