Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have receive from God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

Clearly, Paul did not have the same high school English teachers that I did ... but what an amazing statement. Praise be to God - yesterday we did have our 3rd ultra sound, which I was feeling anxious about. Each time we get to look in on Jeremy, we are amazed. The Lord settled me as we entered the office and Jeremy was very cooperative. We saw his adorable profile, the filling out of his cheeks ... and he now weighs 2lbs 6oz. His femur is measuring a week ahead of the rest of him, which means he has long legs. His head now measures a few days behind, and over all he is in the 49th percentile of size/weight ... he is average! What great words to hear. His kidneys look great, his liver is doing well - none of the things that were worrisome last month regarding those areas were evident yesterday. His heart is still showing growth, and the left side is still showing smaller, but the rate is great. (143 yesterday)

Jeremy even put on a bit of a show, he sucked his fingers, then looked like he was talking to us, we could see his belly moving in and out as he was taking in and out fluids. It was precious. He was much more active during the ultra sound and that was great for me to see ... and Aaron too.

Thank you all who prayed and lifted us up - and continue to lift us in prayer. Along with God we are leaning on you!

For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which provides in your patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. Ans our hope for your is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, you also share in our comfort. 2 Corinthians 1:5-7

Paul, when writing to the church in Corinth - was also writing to us. Paul clung to God in faith and prayer was able to endure everything the world and the devil could throw at him. Through our steadfast prayer, faith and hope - we too can endure everything as the body of Christ.

Again - our deepest thanks for our Prayer Warriors ... the next appointment October 20th, for the 28 week labs. One praise, Aaron and I both have negative blood types so I do not need the RO-GAM shot! YEAH! praise be to the Lord!
have a blessed day
