Please Be In Prayer For Jacob
I just got notice from Karen that during his routine weekly checkup at his pediatrician's Jacob was sent to get an xray because of the fact that he had lots of air in his belly and hasn't pooped in a couple of days. They believe there may be an obstruction in his intestines and they are probably going to end up sending him to Children's Hospital Emergency Room for more testing. They're not sure if his bowels are twisted or if there's something in them blocking them up. I'm currently at home with the older boys and will have to decide if I head out to the hospital or not as well. Thanks for your prayers for our little angel!
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."
