Temporarliy Postponed

The day has finally arrived! With the best staff on stand by so many details to be covered one small detail has been missed. Nobody informed Amy that she couldn't eat this morning. Yes, you read that right. :) Due to this tiny detail Amy had a few small bites this morning in order to keep herself from getting sick. Unfortunantly they are postponing the C-section due to the risk of her getting sick. Obviously this has been a bit frustrating for Amy feeling like she was doing something to keep her from getting sick and now the concern is her getting sick! It doesn't matter though and as the anisthesiologist told Amy this morning "rules are rules".

The good news is they are still planning on welcoming Ella into our world today. The new plan is to start prepping her for surgery at 1:00pm and start the procedure at 2:00pm. That is, of course, if Amy doesn't eat anything between now and then! :)

Just keep praying! We know that all things work together for good! God is in control!

For Amy and Jon,
Aunt Rachael

  1. I'm sure that you know this by now, but the main reason for not eating is aspiration.
    If she was to "get sick", then aspirate into her lungs, pneumonia would be a risk.
    (so says my Mom the Nurse) :-)
