Four More Weeks

"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurable more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen." Ephesians 5:6

Today, we learned that the cystic hygroma has grown and the hydrops have increased. This is not the news I was wanting, but I was relieved to find out that her heart still looks good and the blood flow in her brain is still good.

The doctor I spoke with today from UAMS wants me to get to 28 weeks. I'm at 24 weeks now. He said there is a chance that she could be born alive if I make it to 28 weeks. From there, maybe there will be other options for how to keep her alive! This fills my heart with joy!!!

So, we are praying Brynlee stays strong for four more weeks and for God's mighty workmanship to be displayed.

"For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Ephesians 2:10

Throughout this entire process, I have prayed for God's glory to be displayed. I must tell you that His glory has been displayed because SHE IS STILL HERE, God has blessed me with peace, and so many of you have been constantly been praying for me, sending me messages of hope, and blessing me in numerous ways at school.

"Don't be afraid; just believe, and [Brynlee] will be healed." 
Thank you so much for your prayers.

BTW: Look at how big I am, and I'm just 24 weeks!

We are ready for these next four weeks, and we expect great things!


  1. This news gives such wonderful HOPE! I am so thankful for another 4 weeks that sweet baby girl can grow and we can pray :-)

    Brynlee's story hits SO close to home for us... would you mind if I shared and asked my followers to pray, too?

  2. I'd love for you to share our story. Thank you for reaching out to me.

  3. If I know anything about my readers, it's that they pray... and they do it faithfully :-) I'll send you the link tomorrow when I get it up.... can't get you off my mind, girl; praying without ceasing!
