Happy Mother's Day from the hospital!

We spent today with the children. Was so nice since I haven't had much of any time with them since my hospital stay has begun. We took a little walk to the hospital's solarium where the atmosphere is nicer and there is a fun little magnet play table for children that they just love. They all loved taking pictures and getting their picture taken.

Then we went back to my room to play games and rest my body. We played peanut butter and jelly and skip-bo. Nobody won at peanut butter and jelly and Alegra and I were the only two left playing skip bo as the others got bored with it. She ended up winning and then it was time for supper.

Josiah using his toes in a great way. This is how he held his cards for most of the game. Very funny!

We had supper together and then Jonathon's mom, sister, and brother came and picked up the children to take to grandma's house for a few days. We are praying that this week will be an exciting week with a new baby arriving. The due date is next Sunday, so I'm hoping it will happen soon to get things moving and rolling with getting this clot taken care of. First baby, then the clot.

Hope you all had a great day with your moms or with your children. We sure did and created a unique memory this Mother's Day with being in the hospital.

Oh, I am so glad your children were able to visit you today in the hospital. What a blessing that must have been! I will continue to pray. Thank you for the updates. May He continue to give you peace during the waiting and anticipation of your new baby. May His healing hand remove the clot. He is faithful!

Psalm 36:5 Your love, oh Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.

Hi Christy, got pretty emotional after reading this news after my ordeal with Roy recently. I wanted you to know that my prayers are with you and your family. You have a very strong Faith and a great positive outlook. Keep it up!
Bless you and yours,
Marie W

Praying for you lots, Christi! I didn't realize you were at Bronson in Kalamazoo! Matt almost did his residency there. We were very impressed with it. Hope the baby comes soon and the clot leaves quickly after that!
