Thinking of Misty

Tonight my thoughts are with my friend Misty and her family. I met Misty through one of my anencephaly yahoo groups when she started a message with, "Hello from Utah!" I contacted her and it turns out that we live in the same city (in fact, she lives across the street from one of my husband's cousins). We got together after Emma was born and there was an instant bond. She is currently pregnant with Isaac, who has also been diagnosed with anencephaly.

A week ago, Misty found out that she has polyhydraminos (excess of amniotic fluid (it is not uncommon in anencephalic pregnanices)). Unfortunately, her poly was so bad, that it was a serious risk to her. So her c-section was moved up from May to tomorrow, April 8th. I can't get her out of my mind and I pray that the Lord will give her the strength she needs tomorrow and that she will be blessed with time, so that she, her husband, and her three other children can enjoy time with Isaac.

If you think about it, please stop and say a prayer for Misty, Isaac, and the rest of their family.

Hopefully Misty will update her blog. If you want to read it, you can find it here: A Road Less Traveled.

Its so hard to go through something like loosing a child. I hope she gets all the time in the world with her Isaac and that she will have strength and peace that all will be well!
