Note from Tina

I just wanted to update you on the latest news about Eden. The doctors have decided that Eden needs to be delivered tomorrow (Friday, July 3 in Sydney) due to complications which include asymmetry (her head and body are not growing at the same rate) and they have identified the beginning of a blood flow issue in the umbilical cord. Her chromosomal issues and high risk for Down Syndrome are also contributing factors.

Jonathon is in Malaysia but is trying to fly into Sydney by 0800 tomorrow.

I was to have been admitted at 1500 for the delivery to occur a few hours later. The hospital just rang and requested that I not eat or drink after midnight, as they are desiring to deliver Eden even earlier.

Please pray for me to be overflowing with God's peace, for the doctors and delivery team to be well skilled, for Jonathon's flight not to be delayed, for the surgery to be scheduled at a time for him to be present at his daughter's birth, and for the life and health of our baby Eden.

Thank you for praying. Our God hears every one of them.

May the Glory of the Lord rise above this and may His great mercy and graciousness bless those surrounding Eden tomorrow. God - to You be the glory - Amen.

I am crying as I read your post. God is being glorified through this baby and through you as a family. Praise God, He is good. I will be praying for you all- may the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, guard your hearts and your minds- in Christ Jesus!
Love to all three of you.
