Prayers For Kinzli Grace 03/20/2012
Last night around 9:30pm The Mister and I got a call from his brother in-law to let us know that his sister was going into surgery for an emergency c-section.
She had a doctors appointment at 4:00pm yesterday. Her blood pressure was too high, they couldn't get it down and so, the surgery was scheduled.
She was only about 6 months into term.
We left our home and drove up to the hospital where she was where we met with friends and family in a tiny waiting room that soon over-flowed into three waiting rooms.
There were lots of prayers. Many tears. Hugs. Hoping. Wishing. Questioning. And a whole-lotta love.
Around 11 or so, perhaps a little later it was announced that Alyson was out of surgery. Her blood pressure was back to normal and in an hour or so, they would be taking her little girl, Kinzli Grace to Baylor in Dallas. Where they have an excellent NICU.
Right now, Kinzli and Alyson are both doing fine. Kinzli weighed in at 1.56 lbs. She's not expected to be out of NICU until June (around the original due date).
This is experience was a reminder to me that life can throw any kind of curve ball at you. We never know what we are going to get. But I am a firm believer that God won't give us anything we can't handle. I trust that.
Luckily the family has LOTS of friends and loved ones supporting them through this journey. The road will be a long one, but I have a feeling pot of gold at the end is going to be a big one.
Any and all prayers are welcomed and appreciated. ♥
