Baby is coming.....

Dear Family and Friends,

We wanted to let you know the latest development with our sweet baby Isaac.

I had my doctors appointment on Tuesday where I measured 40 weeks along, instead of 33 weeks. I had an ultrasound today, and had my fluid levels measured inside the womb. A normal fluid level is 25. A high/at risk fluid level is considered up to 35. My fluid level is 44. The baby is scheduled to be delivered on Wednesday, the 8th, by c-section. Our time with him will be extremely limited. The specialist said they will be ready with oxygen and will help him along as much as possible, so that we will get (God willing) to spend a few minutes with our child, while he is alive. We are in shock over how quickly this is happening.

We expect that the funeral will be held in Springville, Utah, on Monday the 13th, a private viewing beginning at 11am. I will be meeting with a funeral director with in the next day or so, so that we can make our casket and program selections.

Between many, many tears, we feel calm as we complete this sacrifice for Heavenly Father.

We'll be in touch. Email any questions or concerns, or contact us by phone.

We love you,

Misty and Family

I had a a very kind sweet lady take Emily's photo's for me and I cherish them all completely.I'm so sorry you have to travel this road of uncertainty and broken heartness as I have.May the LORD comfort you and your family as you all rest in HIS Almighty Arms.

I am so sorry it's all happening more quickly than you had planned. I know that must be hard on you. Still, your faith is strong and inspires me.

I will keep on praying for you.

"i'm sorry" seems to empty but it's all i know to say. praying so very hard for you & your family at this time... and for your precious son, that God will sustain him long enough for you to spend some time with him.

in Him,
michelle

Be sure to take some pictures of him and let me know what you would like me to do.

Debbie said...

Oh Misty, when I read your post it broke my heart. The Lord is walking next to you, sustaining you and giving you strength. I will continue to keep you in my prayers. Love to you! VVT

Holly said...

Oh wow, Misty! So soon! I can hardly believe it! But considering your fluid levels it is probably for the best for both you and little Isaac. I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I very much hope you can get some time with him. I know all anen mommies wish for that. Whether he is born alive or not, cherish every minute you have with your baby boy. Those moments are so very precious. I wish I could've had even more time with Carleigh, but then again if I would've had more time I still would've been left wanting more. I'm here for you!

Danielle-lee said...

A month earlier? Oh Misty. I want you to have more time.....but I realize it doesn't matter what any of us want. :(
I will be thinking of you and praying for you and your family April 8th. Love to you.

Misty, upholding you, the family and little Isaac in prayer. Sending love.

Celia said...

Misty, I said it before, I am sorry because I know this is happening sooner than you had expected. I will continue to keep you in my prayers. God knows what he is doing, even when we can't seem to understand His reasoning. I myself cling to the promises of these verses:
Jeremiah 29:11-13
John 14:27
Deuteronomy 31:6

I will continously be in prayer and specifically pray these verses over you as well as any others I can think of that might help. You are covered in prayer by this house!
We love you girl!

Mandy said...

You are so strong...I know you will get through this even though your heart is aching right now. I will be thinking of your family...holding you in my heart and praying for you. All my love.

Nicole said...

Misty, I will be thinking of you. I hope you are able to make some wonderful memories with your sweet baby boy. ((HUGS))

You are strong, so very very strong and I am hoping Isaac will be strong too, and that you will have some time with him. I am thinking of you and hoping these next few days of preparation go as best as they can. Take care of yourself Misty too...you are so important.

Charity said...

You are in my thoughts and prayers, sister. I love you and yo are a strong person and mother. You will treat Isaac with much love and admiration. I know that it's hurting you and your family but I know that you love and adore this child and he will be always remembered as a strong little fighter. I pray and hope that you have some time with him and then you will always remember his little face and memory. I love you and am here for you.

Oh, Misty,

Know that you are and will be in my prayers! I know this is a lot sooner than you had hoped for, but know that God is in control and knows what is best. Oh, my heart goes out to you! I pray that you will have many moments with your precious Isaac!

Praying,

I found you on Holly's page. I wanted to let you know that I truly admire your strength and courage. Your family is very blessed to have you, and little Isaac was blessed to be with you. I am so sorry for your loss. I know there's nothing anyone can say or do to ease the pain, but I pray that you will find solace in the Lord.
