Big News!!!!!

Psalm 127:3 "Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward."

I realize I'm a bit slow in posting this. And for that I apologize. For several days I suffered with body pain from head to toe. No other symptoms but just soreness like I had severe arthritis but I know that isn't what it was. It has since passed (Thank the Lord!!!!) and I am back to my old self.

This last Tuesday I got a call from our daughter Kristina that she needed me to take her to the doctor. She had been experiencing some pain in her abdomen and since having been sick not long ago her husband thought maybe something else might be going on to be concerned with. I took her to her PCP and he did a pelvic exam and checked the normal things they usually check and found nothing out of the ordinary wrong. So he put in orders for blood work and an ultrasound. We went to the hospital to get the bloodwork done and then to the imaging center to have the ultrasound. We waited at the imaging place to hear back from her PCP and he said the ultrasound showed a little fluid on one of her ovaries but that could be a cyst. He said he was still waiting on the bloodwork results and that she could go home and he would call her when he got those.

I got a call from her not too much later that she got the results from her bloodwork. The blood tests showed that all was normal. He said that all was normal except that......

SHE'S GONNA HAVE A BABY!!!!!

So I'm going to be a Nanna for the fifth time!!! Yes I said fifth time!!! Ronnie and Jessica had two miscarriages and then gave birth to our first granddaughter on August 12, 2009. Our youngest daughter Michelle is due to give birth to our first grandson in April and now Josh and Kristina have given us our fifth grandchild. Wow!!! It blows my mind to say that!!!! I never thought I'd see the day!!! I praise God for it that is for sure!!

I ask that you all pray for Kristina as she carries this baby and that all will go well with the pregnancy. Also please pray for Michelle as she completes her pregnancy and delivers our grandson John Michael in a couple of months.

Thank you also to all those of you who continue to follow my blog although I have not kept up with it as well as I would like. You all are the only reason I even keep posting at all!! I love you all!!

We are planning a furlough for the latter part of this year. Hopefully we'll get to stop by and meet all the new grandkids!

I don't know how I've missed your blog on IFB KJV, and I'm glad I've found it now. Appears you have some wonderful days coming quickly in the future. Have prayed for Kristina's and Michelle's pregnancies. May this year's Christmas sees all together and in great health!

Praying for healthy pregnancies and deliveries. Going to have a bigger family soon, eh?

I'm Canadian, I can say "eh"! ;)

Glad you are doing well now. I missed so much online due to my computer dying again last summer. I had some access through my Ipod and friend's laptop, but it was not regular access, and did not have all my links (actually, I have lost all my old Favourites with my computer, so will have to start finding them again now that I got my computer back recently).

great news, praise the Lord :-) May everything goes on smoothly.

Congratulations, Grammy!! Kristine sounds excited. I pray all goes well with her and the pregnancy. I can't believe she's been getting nasty visitors to her site, too. Why do people think they have to express themselves all the time? .... At any rate, I always enjoy your posts and miss you when you don't share for long periods of time. Blessings to all of you -- Juanita

CONGRATULATIONS!!! That's wonderful news to hear...and another grandbaby on the way too~!

I do wish you'd ask Jessica to add me to her blog...I'd love so much to keep up with her and Ronnie and see pics of their little girl.


Thanks!
