Tomorrow morning is the big day!  We have to be at the hospital at 5:30 a.m.  LOVELY.  Surgery is at 7:30 and baby Cohen Preston Brown should be here by 8:00 a.m. Eastern time.  Geron will be posting pics as soon as he can tomorrow, so check back in the morning if you want to see what this little guy looks like.  I’m personally wondering about hair color/skin color/eye color since Geron’s and mine are so different.  We didn’t know what to expect with Cora, but somehow God made her beautiful! 

Please remember us in your prayers.  I certainly won’t ask any of you to get up and pray that early in the morning, but if you would remember us tonight, I would be grateful.  Last time was such a scary experience---more scary for Geron and the family since I was out and didn’t know what was going on.  However, knowing that now, I must confess, has made me nervous.  I told Holly tonight I am feeling somewhat more peaceful about it.  I felt like the devil was trying to rob me of the peace and joy God wants to give me regarding baby Cohen.  Noone has given me reason to believe that anything like last time will happen tomorrow. In fact, my doctor has been extremely reassuring that things will be fine.  I told him in my last appointment if he needed to take anything out besides the baby in order to save my life so that I can enjoy the two children I’m going to have, than take it!  My sister and her husband can bring the next grandchildren into the world---sorry, Ann and Daniel, I know that’s a LOT of pressure.  But hey, it’s your turn!  J 


Thank you all for praying for us already and please continue.  We will show off baby Cohen as soon as we can tomorrow. 


P.S. please remember Cora in your prayers as well. This is going to be just as big an adjustment for her as it will be for the rest of us.
