So today is the 5th day post surgery and there is no sign of infection. Praise God! This is another hurdle-- overcome. Our prayers for no spotting are working so lets keep it up. This does a lot for Rachael's spirits.
The doctor allowed her to take a shower today-- sitting of course, but that's good.
She still feels achy in her cervix lets pray that goes away completely as well. A nurse told Rachael today that by the time they went to operate on her she was dilated to a 3! We didn't realize that-- so that was hard to hear. Apparently Rachael and Justin made the right decision to go for the surgery as the dilating was not stopping.
So now we start the road towards the 24th week- viability. That is 18 days away.
Keep praying her bag of water stays strong, her stitch holds, that her body stays peaceful. My dad continues to pray that God would knit Rachael's body together even as He is knitting Jimmie's together. And lets thank God for these little victories, which are really big!
Thank you for fighting with us- your prayers are powerful!
