Bits of news to end the week:
An update on Vincent. This was the latest word-
“Pray for the Karnai family. Vincent will be undergoing surgery tomorrow to put in a trach and a feeding tube in his stomach. As long as surgery goes well, he will go home in a week. A lot of changes are in store for this family. Pray for strength.”
For me to tell this little one’s story has been piecemeal, since all I know is what I get in emails (distant friend of a friend communication). I guess we know enough to pray, though.
In case someone is reading that doesn’t know yet, I have a little one on the way, number six. I had an ultrasound and it looks like baby’s a boy! This evens the score, three to three, or four all, if you count Luke and me. The imaging center has a new 3-D ultrasound feature, and since it is so new, they are letting everybody have it done. So after all the measurements were taken, the tech tried to get some 3-D images. Whew! It is harder than it seems. They have to catch baby totally surrounded by fluid, with no limbs in their face. This little guy didn’t give a hoot about those rules, and nosed up to the tissue wall or had his hands up in his face the whole time. Didn’t make for good shots. Oh, well. I thought as I was leaving, if we have any more, technology will advance to where I am taking home 4-D movies of the baby. Pretty neat times we’re in.
I’ll be back next week with, I hope, a review of the first book I finished in my reading challenge, Thundering Sneakers. That, and my thoughts of the Chris Tomlin concert we (finally!) get to attend on Sunday. That, and what I’m thinking about life in general at the moment. Stay tuned.
“I always thank God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in him you have been enriched in every way—in all your speaking and in all your knowledge— because our testimony about Christ was confirmed in you. Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.”1 Corinthians 1:4-9
