Drum roll, please.

Preston Randal was born on 1.4.11 at 10:11 a.m.  He weighed 6 lbs and 13 oz.  He is 20 and 1/4 inches long. His first breath was perfect. I got to see him before his transport to Texas Children's hospital.  It was the most amazing moment of my life. So far so good in that his stats remain normal. His doctors will meet tomorrow to decide the next step.

Please pray specifically for 1) Preston to remain stable 2) wisdom and knowledge for the medical team and doctors and 3) God's perfect timing in regards to surgery.

Thank you Kristy Owens for capturing this special time in our lives today. The photos you took are simply amazing. Thanks for making this proud momma the happiest momma alive today with this photos.






I'm patiently waiting to go see Preston in the CVICU now.  Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers today, and Praise Jesus for this little miracle.  What a testimony!

Congrats on your little miracle!! I have been praying for and thinking about you and your son all day today and I don't even know you! I am so thankful for a Healing God and the comfort that he can bring to us mommies that he entrusts with sweet angels. My daughter has health concerns as well and so I understand some of your journey. We are celebrating her first birthday this month and so thankful daily for the little miracle that she is. I will continue to pray for your little one and your family. God Bless!

I'm so happy for you and your husband! Congrats! God does listen and does answer prayers. What a great gift he gave you today! I have prayed for all of you several times today alone. You're blog has made me cry several times the past few weeks. I just had a little boy on Dec. 2nd. and think that you are so strong, I can't even imagine. Make sure that you take care of yourself, the first 2 days after the c-section are the worst! Thanks for the updates, Preston has a huge fan club.

Aly @ Analyze This said...

You're probably tired of seeing "Aly has written on your wall" ... "Aly has commented on your blog" ... "Aly has emailed you" ... But I can't say it enough ... I didn't witness, though I experienced a miracle yesterday. A miracle that God works in mysterious ways. That praying and remaining calm works. We can all gain something from this experience. V family, you are loved and in my prayers. God Bless each and every one of you!
