We all know that this little baby is truly a miracle - a precious gift from God. In addition to this little life, it was discovered at the beginning of my pregnancy that I had a cyst on one of my ovaries. This cyst, in the beginning, was 14+ cm in diameter! We had dubbed it "the pancake," because it looked just like that at each ultrasound. My first OB/GYN had scheduled surgery for 16 weeks, but me and Tyler were very against cutting me open so close to the little one, so we made the choice (with much prayer and thought) to switch to a new OB/GYN. What a blessing this has been! We were met with more information, a doctor with an open mind and heart and a doctor who was willing to watch and see if my body would care for itself. At the 16 week appt. with my OB/GYN the cyst was now more oval shaped and 13 cm long, seeming to be shrinking at a very, very slow rate we continued to ask for prayers from our family, friends, and saints to which we are devoted, as well as Our Lady of Guadalupe. This all being said, can you believe the shock and marvel that Tyler, mom and me experienced at the conclusion of the 20week ultrasound when the technician assured us that the cyst was GONE - not smaller, GONE COMPLETELY!! Praise Jesus in heaven the Divine Physician and source of all good things, especially miracles! Our thanks to all of you who have been praying and to our guardian angels, patron saints, and Our Lady of Guadalupe. Jesus is so incredible!
Our precious little baby who was tumbling about and clutching its little hands together, as though it too were in prayer thanking God for the second miracle that he gave us. The miracle of good health for the sake of our baby and the sake of me.
