Our daughter Rachel is expecting baby number 2. We learned he’s a little boy.
We also learned there’s a potential complication with his umbilical cord Instead of 2 arteries and a vein, he only has one of each. This condition, called SUA , could be a sign of an array of serious things – or he could be just fine. If you have any experience with SUA, Id’ love to hear from you.
The baby is about 20 weeks along. Halfway there…
Rachel and Carlos are very, very concerned, as are we. Please pray for them, as they’re not really going to be able to relax much until after the baby is born. If you click on the “called SUA” link above, you’ll discover why. This family is living on the razor’s edge as it is. They’ve experienced more drama and hardship in 5 years than most of us experience in a lifetime. They need God’s strength and wisdom to walk through this time in their lives…and in the life of this little baby.
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” – Psalm 139:13-16
