Thank You Jesus

I saw dad this morning and he is doing well. He still is on the respirator, but they expect him to come off of it any time now. Surgery went excellent and he is being cared for very well in the surgical cardiac intensive care at Erlanger hopspital. We get to see Him again at 4:00.

We just got back the results of our preliminary amnio screening for the baby boy on the way. This test looks for the most popular chromosomal problems like downs syndrome and hydrocephalus.
This test is over 90% accurate and is telling us He is a "Normal Boy"

It will take 7-10 days to know definitively when more tests come back in, but we are praising God.

We have really felt your prayers over the couple of days and I'm so thankful to be a part of such a community of believers that loves and knows us and have lifted us in prayer to the throne of God this week. I rarely listen to christian radio, but early this morning when I got in the car to leave my mother's house, the first thing i heard on the radio was this:

Psalm 73:26-28

My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.

Those who are far from you will perish;
you destroy all who are unfaithful to you.

But as for me, it is good to be near God.
I have made the Sovereign LORD my refuge;
I will tell of all your deeds.

Praising God with you all! Praying for continued good news about the baby and a full recovery for Geron's dad. You're right, Lydia, it's still always scarey even when we know God is in control. Thanks so much for your comments and encouragement on my blog. It means a lot!
Still praying,
