A little scare!

Today is a new day..."His mercies endure forever". Yesterday is over with, praise God! It was a rough and tiring day for me. I had breakfast and got a bath taken and felt pretty good until I came out of the bathroom and sat on my bed. Jonathon was getting ready to leave for an appointment, and I told him that I just didn't feel good and felt so tired. Next thing I know he is leaving and I am feeling awful (okay, beyond awful), and was trying to call him to come back and ended up calling the nurse to come right away. Well, to make a long story short, my blood pressure dropped crazily and then the baby's heart rate dropped as well. The nurse quickly put oxygen on me, got me a cool washcloth because I was dripping with sweat and pushed me over to my left side to get the baby's heart rate to go back to normal. Jonathon came back to quite the sight. They sent me down to the labor and delivery floor where I could be on constant monitor for 2 hours straight. After that episode all my vitals went back to normal and the baby's heart rate was better than evern. It was very strange, but it did cause me to appreciate the fact that I'm here and not home. I have wanted to be home so badly, but after that incident I am realizing that this really is the safest place for me and for the baby. Not easy having to continue to wait, but the days go by and I am nearing the birth of our 4th baby. Before I know this will all be over with and I'll be home, clot free and baby in arms.

Please do continue to pray for me as I know now that anything really can happen at any given moment. Yahweh has definitely continued to keep His hands upon me. My prayer is that He will continue through the upcoming days of getting me beyond all this. Pray that I won't have any more episodes like yesterday. Thanks for all the prayers that you all have already lifted up!
