Baby Grace

If you missed it on Facebook, my little sister, Jonelle, had an emergency c-section this morning for her premature baby. Your immediate prayers and support were so encouraging and welcome.

After the procedure, both Jonelle and baby Grace were still okay.

Baby Grace born 4-16-2010 weight: 440 grams

Things are good for the time being but could take a turn for the worse for baby Grace at any point over the next four days because she is so small. Your continued prayers, especially over this weekend, are most welcome. If she survives the next few days then the doctors will be able to discuss next steps. Your prayers are still very much needed!

Thank you, friends. Thank you.

I have been overwhelmed by your love and support.

God is in the timing..even of this sweet little one born so soon! Almighty God gave us technology like the NICU to sustain her sweet form...prayers for the Doctors and nurses to have wisdom....for the mom to have rest and peace while she waits to hold her little one. Grace is an appropriate name!
