Prayers needed and other news...

There has been so much going on these past few weeks, most importantly is the need for prayer for Julie Orendorff. Some of you may remember one of my best friends, Jody (Orendorff) Trent, we went to high school together…well her mother, Julie, had a tragic incident last week. She is a nurse and was found on duty completely unconscious, they had to bring her back via CPR and was one of the most critical patients in ICU last week. The scary thing is…no one can figure out what happened or how long she was without oxygen! All of her stats and symptoms don’t match up with anything the doctors can figure out…and last week they didn’t know if there was any hope.

We were asked to pray for a miracle…well let me tell you…prayer is a very powerful thing! She has greatly improved over the last week, but she’s still not out of the clear. Please keep Julie, her husband Greg, and their kids Jody, Jessica, and Megan in your prayers. Also, I obviously don’t have all the technical terms down for what’s going on, but Jody is a nurse practitioner and updates this blog daily with Julie’s progress. If you’d like to keep up with her, just follow this link and click “become a member”. You’ll be sent and email every time there is a new status update. https://www.carepages.com/carepages/julieorendorff. Please pray.

In other news…I’m unexpectedly traveling back to Fort Wayne this weekend! In my group of 11 friends from high school, Megan, Heather and I are all pregnant right now, due within a month of each other! Our friends are throwing us a shower…plus we just need an excuse to get together...it’s been too long! We were going to have the shower in Indy at Megan’s house, but with everything going on with Jody’s family, we want to be in Fort Wayne. It will be a super quick trip, and I really hope Steven is able to come with me, he might have to work. If not, I plan on staying with Greg and Sarah in Bloomington on Friday and Sunday night to break up the trip…I better ask them if I can! :-)

Here are some pictures from this morning; I’ll be 28 weeks tomorrow! This pregnancy has flown by. Baby Funny is probably going to be either a soccer player or a punter the way he’s been kicking me lately! It’s such an amazing thing! The last picture is so ridiculous…Steven made me laugh and wouldn’t take another one…oh well…I am so happy…we are so excited!
