one year ago today...

one year ago today i made the most frightening phone call to my OB to tell him i didn't think i was ok anymore.

one year ago today he told me i needed to come to the hospital only 26 weeks along in my pregnancy.

one year ago today i was so very frightened.

one year ago today i feared for my sweet baby's life with all that i was.

one year ago today i prayed like i had never prayed before.

one year ago today i trembled with fear but felt the Lord's presence like never before.

one year ago today we were showered in love and support by our amazing friends and family.

one year ago today ryan's chief resident left the operating room to come pick up our big kids so ryan could take me to the hospital.

one year ago today i was transferred from our community hospital via ambulance to the bigger hospital because we were not doing well.

one year ago today i sobbed when my amazing OB could no longer dictate my care.

one year ago today we heard words like "emergency c-section" and "DIC" and "brain hemorrhage."

one year ago today ryan fought so hard for the doctors to give me a little more time without delivering.

one year ago today i was so thankful for my husband's calm demeanor and knowledge.

one year ago today i was faced with the truth of how dire our circumstances were.

one year ago today we waited on the Lord.

and we prayed.

and He was so faithful...

"wait for the Lord: be strong, and let your heart take courage; yes, wait for the Lord."
- Psalm 27:14
