Miracles happen!!!

Well- this might get corney, but hey that is me!!

The past 5 months have been the most difficult crazy months thus far of my life! I have been happy, sad, scared, worried, strengthened and uplifted and many more things! I have always believed in God and the power of prayer and had faith, but my testimony of these things have been imensley strengthened throughout this pregnancy. I have felt God's hand in my life and in the life of this little baby. I am blessed and thankful for everything that has happened- good or bad- it has brought us closer as a family and as husband and wife!

So here is the news- that was the corney part!

We met with the doctor yesterday ( a new doctor in the same hospital) and she said things look really good. There is no fluid on the baby! The ventricles that were filling with fluid and possibly going to cause another condition are looking really good. They are not even a concern right now! Jenna is the toughest little cookie ever! She weighs about 1.5 pounds and is growing great- she is right on schedule! They did say that I dont have a lot of amniotic fluid, but that is not a big concern right now. The doctor actually said that if she didn't know the history on the baby she would have thought she was looking at a normal healthy baby!! WOW! I have needed to hear that!

So needless to say- prayer does work! Thanks to all of you who have prayed for our family and for this precious little girl! We love and appreciate all of you!
