An Update...

Well here's an update on the last blog.

No I did not get a good cry out...it just wouldn't happen for me. I'm sure it will come at the most inopportune time...you know...Jacob's t-ball party, in the middle of "fer-nastics" (that's "gymnastics" for those of you who don't speak Caleb's language!)or at youth small group on Wednesday...you know some REAL appropriate time.

Anyway...back to what I'm supposed to be blogging about. Last night Beau and Magan came over to drop off their son so he could spend the night with us. We had a great time of prayer with each other for today. They went to the hospital this morning and began the process of enducing her labor. She delivered her baby girl stillborn at 3:00pm. They named her Ryann Michelle (I'm not sure if the spelling is right) she was 7 inches long and 3 1/2 ounces. Beau and Magan got to have a special time with her and Magan is doing really well. She had a few days to cry and be sad over the weekend and she said that helped her to be "in the moment" when she delivered little Ryann. There were no complications with the delivery and now they are doing some testing on both mom and baby to see if they can get some answers as to why Magan hasn't been able to carry a baby full term in almost 2 years. She said the experience was as "good" as it could be. The doctor and nurses were all compassionate and understanding and they could not have asked for a "better" time...considering the circumstances.

I tell you what...God answers prayers...selfish ones too. We very specifically prayed last night for compassionate nurses and a quick delivery. Once the medicine took affect, Magan delivered in about 3 hours...can't really ask for faster than that! I am so thankful for a COMPASSIONATE God. A God who cares about how we feel and is willing to answer selfish prayers in accordance with His will to help us through the toughest of situations. Praise Him. Magan's quote on her myspace is so appropriate and so I share it with you:

You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will CHOOSE to say
Lord, blessed be Your NAME!

Amen.
