Thankful Thursday

After  three trips to the MAC at Abbott Northwestern I am so very thankful to still be pregnant.

I am thankful for the wonderful doctors and nurses there who have taken such great care of me and Baby.  Although we had several scares involving the baby's heart rate during/after the contractions they were able to get things settled down quickly and they have found the right dose of Nifedipine to keep the contractions to a minimum without dropping my blood pressure to low.

My husband has been absolutely wonderful through all of this. Since I am on bed rest he has had to take over all household duties, being the Teen's taxi driver, taking me to Dr appointments, and still trying to work. He has been calm and supportive and caring.

People from our church have been dropping of meals and offering so much support. I am so grateful for our church family. Just this morning I had an OB appointment and when we returned there was a roast and potatoes waiting at our door.

The Teen has his 8th grade promotion tonight. Next fall, high school. I am so proud of him.

What are you thankful for this week?

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. " Hebrews 10:23-25
