Heavy Heart!

Hello my friends,
today I come to you with a heavy heart. 
Our middle daughter, Karrah was 6 months pregnant and having difficulties.  She developed preeclampsia with her previous 2 children; so we knew that it was a given with this unplanned pregnancy.
Our entire family prayed and hoped for the best.  However, she had to be hospitalized for the second time because of high blood pressure.  Monday night they made a decision that the baby needed to be delivered.
He was not getting proper blood flow and had stopped growing.  Her team of  Dr's. thought it was the safest route to go for both her and the baby.
Little Warren weighed in at just under 15 ounces and was 9 1/2 inches long.  We had all prepared ourselves for him to possibly not pull through, but the little guy was a fighter and breathing on his own.  He was a miracle baby!
We were elated, to say the least.  However, today he had just wore his tiny body out and returned home to be with Heavenly Father.
Although we are very sad, we know that his journey here was enough for us to fall in love with him!  Thank goodness for our belief that we will see him again and all be reunited.  We will  wrap him in loving arms!
Till then he will be wrapped in the arms of a loving Heavenly Father.
It has been one hectic week, so there will not be a Share Your Cup today.  Also next week will be our "Creating Christmas" link party.
I hope you are getting your posts ready.    Debby Goes Shabby   will start it off with "Shabby Christmas"  I will do a shabby post on my blog and have a link for you to hop over and link at hers.
Share Your Cup will return on the 20th.
Wishing you all the merriest Christmas season and many thanks for the love and support you have given me throughout the years!
It means the world to me!!
hugs,
Jann

Jann my heart is heavily burdened. I am grieving with you and praying fervently for your family! Oh dear Heavenly Father send the peace that passes all understanding to this precious family! In Jesus' most holy name, Amen!

Jann thank you for your testimony of faith in the belief that we will see our loved ones again! It is my belief based on scripture that the time of reuniting is not long now as the Lord can come at any time and the earth is groaning for it. Praise him we have a blessed hope!

Jann, I'm sorry to hear about little Warren. We went through something similar one and a half years ago when we lost our 10 day old little Eliiot. Our daughter-in-law was only 26 weeks when he was born and weighed 1 lb. 10 oz. We still grieve for him as he was part of our lives for those precious 10 days. Prayers for you and your family.

Dear Jann, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I understand what you are going through as a grandmother. I have an angel granddaughter who passed away at 3 months. It was hard and difficult and of course it happened when life was really tough for the family anyway. She is with us often and we celebrate her birthday every year by writing a sweet note on balloons then letting them fly into the sky. This helps the healing process for all. I pray for your family and especially for mom. There are a lot of great out reach programs out there for parents who have lost a child. This has helped my daughter in law a lot. Thank goodness for out faith and forever families.
xoxo Jo

Tamara said...

Love and hugs,
Tamara
