Two and two go together

To you and others a c section may not be such a big deal. I don't like hospitals, needles, or being without my husband for a major surgery.

I was telling a friend at work yesterday how I am becoming more anxious about a c- section as it becomes more of a reality. I proceeded to tell her that I don't like the fact that Jason has to leave me during the procedure and how I think I will be a mess without him there. She began to tell me that Jesus will be in the room with you. She goes honestly, how cool would that be if you could feel the presence of Jesus in that room with you? I began to think about it,and if the presence of Jesus was in that room with me, I would have complete peace, no fear, and be confident in all the that the doctors are doing.

As I was driving to work this morning, I was listening to CandC music factory...and then I decided to turn on the Christian radio station. I had never heard this song before, but the words went like this:
"I am in better hands now, you are with me. The breath of God is in this room." After I had heard those words in that song, I was reminded of what my friend said at work, and know that very well God's presence can be in that room during a c-section and I can feel his touch and his breath upon me, my child, and the doctors as the perform the operation. If Jason can't be in the room with me as the sew me back together....what better person than to have the Lord with me.

I was encouraged this morning and pray it continues as time comes closer.

I think that you are stronger than you give yourself credit for. You have been an emotionally and spiritually strong person these last few years, and now you're going to be physically brave. When you take into consideration that a C-section is what is best for you and your baby, you have to thank God that he has brought the medical field to a place where this procedure is safe and effective.

From start to finish, you are going to have a baby in a total of 45 minutes! That's so cool. And, Jason gets to be there for the actual delivery, and your nurse friend will be there with you all the way too.

P.S. Could you try to go into labor on a Thursday? Talk to the little one and see what the two of you can come up with.

WOW - what a blessing that friend was to you! Honestly Sharon, I wish I had chosen to think of this before my C section. How amazing. Of course He was with me - but you are preparing yourself to be mindful of it! You are already light years ahead of where I was!
