Just a quick update to let you know that Nathan and Melanie’s little girl was born safely by C-Section this morning a little before 2 a.m. She is healthy and in the NICU as is the hospital’s procedure prior to 36 weeks. We’re waiting for Nathan and Melanie to have a blog post after they get a few hours of sleep :-).

Rejoicing in Jesus,

I’ve got a two week old baby and every time that I have to get up at night to care for him I think of Nathan and Melanie and how they would love the chance to make those sacrifices. Then I’ve prayed for them and their sweet little one. I’ll keep praying that Melanie recuperate well from surgery and that their precious daughter grow strong and healthy.

  19. We are out of state, visiting family, but I have been keeping up with you twice a day and telling my family all about you and we’ve been praying!!! I checked the blog late last night and my Dad was like, “Well?”, but no new news to report, so it was with great excitement this morning when I checked the blog and found out SHE’S HERE!!!! Tears are falling and my heart is overwhelmed with the goodness of our God! I can’t wait to hear more!!!!

  27. Congratulations to you and Praise be to God for the wonderful thing He has done.
    I meant to write the other day but didn’t have the time for the detailed message I wanted to give you…bottom line is this…ginger tea is great for post c-section, helps with relieving gas from the air in the abdominal cavity. Also, have Melanie get up and walk within 24 hours. Standing upright is so much less painful than lying in a bed. It’s painful to go through the process of GETTING UP and GETTING DOWN but once up, it is much better and also helps relieve the gas. She might get pain in her shoulders from a nerve that runs from the abdomen up to the shoulder (deferred pain) but being upright alleviates this so much. I learned this after my first c-section and put it all into practice with my second one and, oh, what a difference. But, not every woman gets that shoulder pain.
    I can’t wait to see pictures and hear what you have named this precious gift from God.
    Love in Christ,

  29. Congratulations Nathan and Melanie and to all you proud grandparents and aunts and uncles! We are rejoicing with you at the healthy birth of your newest family member. Praying for Melanie’s recovery and looking forward to “meeting” baby via pictures.

  33. Hallelujah! I’ve been checking your blog several times a day and praying throughout the day for you all. Oh! I’m so glad! Praise the Lord!!!
