~Prayers Needed~


Good Morning my Dear friends...I know your all busy with friends and family this fourth of July weekend....But if you can will you take the time to pray for my Granddaughter Candace....
You see Candace is 6 months 6 days pregnant with a son Landen James....
This is a picture of her and her Mama my daughter Dawna just taken last Saturday...We were so busy making all the plans for the up coming Baby shower in Aug...Her due date is Sept 27...
Candace already losted a baby last year...so we were just praying that all would go well this time...
Candace said on Sunday when I seen her that her back and lower front was killing her....Hey we all had aches and pains with carrying babies....I just told her it's probably the pressure of the baby....
Well my Dawna called me late last night to say she was here at the hospital with Candace...It seem Candace is having contractions...NOT good at all...the hospital tried to IV her and get them to stop...We don't want Landen James just yet...Candace was still saying after all the IV's they had given her that she was still in pain...They finally called the Doctor in and took her by ambulance to a bigger hospital in the city its seem she is also dilated to a 1 1/2 ...Now the hospital is trying as hard as they can to stop this baby from being born so soon...The bigger hospital is also most equipped to deal with preemie births...
I have been up all night praying and crying....So I'm asking all of you that read this to Pray for my sweet Candace and Landen James...And my family...
I better go as I'm going to the hospital to be with my Dawna and Candace....Thank you all..
May you have a safe and GREAT fourth of July...
Until next time from my mountain to yours
Hugs and smiles Glria

Gloria..I have a niece who has been trying everything including several failed in-vitros for the past 10 years. Miscarriages and just plain failed attempts have been so hard on her, but she called me last week, and she said, "Auntie, we are due in November!" She is the dearest girl (she is a a GIRL to me, but time is not on her side much longer so this may be her last chance), and I pray for her every day to make it to her due date this time. So please keep her in your prayers and I will absolutely do the same for Candace...all babies and their Moms need love and prayers...ALL the time!

Gloria, I'll definitely say a prayer.

As a mother and grandmother, I know the hardships my daughter's have endured to have their babies and know the heartache when things didn't go as we hoped.

I am sending love to Candace and her sweet baby and prayers that all will be okay.

Oh Gloria, my thoughts and prayers go with you at this time. I too had most of my babies early but not this early. It's a scary thing for mama and baby and everyone around them. Take care of yourself and I'll keep praying that God will take care of this sweet mama and her baby.

Hi Sweet Sis...

Just seen your post and came right over! Ohhh Sweetie, I am so sorry to hear about this...but I just want you to know that I have prayed and feel very confident that the Lord has everything under control and that all is WELL!!!

Rebecca said...

I'm singing this song to you~

God will make a way
Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see
He will make a way for me
He will be my guide
Hold me closely to His side
With love and strength
For each new day
He will make a way
He will make a way

Prayer going up to the Most High for mercy, grace, intervention and love.

I BELIEVE HE WILL MAKE A WAY!

Love to you~

Rebecca

Sandra said...

Hi Gloria. Just wanted to tell you that she is in prayers. I know all too well of going into preterm labor. I went into preterm labor with my twin boys. I was given magnesium thru I.V. to stop the contractions. The magnesium made me feel like I was on fire on the inside. Literally! It was the most horrible feeling but after a while, the contractions did stop and I even closed back up. I was in the hospital for a week and then was put on strict bedrest. I really feel like the power of all the prayers is what kept me from actually having my babies too early. I will be praying for Candace, sweety! ((HUGS))

Shelia said...

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Dear Gloria,
I feel this so much right now with Katie being pregnant and due at about the same time. I will say a prayer for Candace and baby. I just want you to know that my Sis Susie, had both her son's at 27 weeks and although it was a long road they are both totally healthy, normal and perfect. Justin is 17 and Ben is 9 and you would never guess they had been born so premature. Please keep us updated.
Love Ya,
Cindy
