Cathie just wrote back to me late tonight via email:

Hi Tina,

I have been speaking with Tracy Mitchell daily. Jonathan is still very sick…please continue to pray…He has been on ECMO for 11 days now…we are all praying for a miracle for him! I have talked with her many times about how we are called to pray believing and that is what she is doing.

I’m glad you are not contracting. We are praying that your little one stays put until you are safely in Gainesville! How was your stress test today? It’s wonderful that she is gaining weight so well!

Wow…one week and counting!! Hang in there…I know how difficult this anticipation is! We will be praying for safe travels for all 3 of you!

Okay…time for sleep…talk to you soon!

Take Care,

Everyone, please continue to pray for Jonathan…

Today is my mother-in-law’s birthday…and while she is celebrating in Vegas, I worked and went to the doctor for another routine check-up. I gained 2 more pounds – – 22 total pounds so far. And boy, it just seems like every day my belly is expanding!

Our baby girl passed the stress tests again today – – everything looks really good. And no contractions for me – – which is good.

Josh leaves next Thursday, 7/19 at 4am to start driving. I will join him on Sunday, July 22nd. So, only 10 days left for me and I am hoping that she stays put! I am a bit anxious about it! I don’t really want to go to Florida, but now that I am at 35 weeks, I want to make sure she doesn’t want to come early!

I have 2 more doctor appointments next week before I leave: one with ultrasound to check her again and one with more stress test/routine pregnancy stuff. We will see how much she weighs next week via ultrasound…I am thinking 5 – 5.5 pounds, since she was already 4 pounds on 6/20/2007. But we shall see…

Just running around like a crazy person trying to get everything done. There are just things you do not think of when you have to be gone that long…like buy a battery back up for my car since it won’t be driven for 3-4 months. Oh, and turn off the thermostat on the way out the door that morning…etc, etc, etc.
