Where Is Sarah?

She's in a hospital bed. But, thanks to the hospital's wireless internet, she can blog.

Why am I writing in the 3rd person? I'll stop that now.

Anyway, a complication from my pregnancy has landed me in the hospital. And, it looks like I'll be here for several days to a week.

I'm doing okay right now, and the baby is doing fine. If you pray, I'd appreciate your prayers for me and my family. As you know, my two precious little boys rely on me everyday, and I can't be there with them right now.

It's hard, really hard.

My husband is reminding me to use this time to rest while I'm stuck here. My mind didn't have any trouble getting around that one. I'm working on convincing my heart.

Fortunately, my sweet husband is here with me (and watching the end of today's PGA golf I don't feel guilty blogging!), and we're having a fun date night while the boys hang out with our babysitter at home. Ohhhh, I miss them.

Thanks for your sweet messages from yesterday.


  1. Oh my goodness Sarah, I missed yesterday's post. I will certainly keep you in my prayers. :)

    Please keep us updated!

  2. Bless your heart, Sarah! My mommy heart just aches for you and your precious little ones at home. I will most certainly keep y'all in my prayers. I'm so glad your husband is there with you. I wish I lived closer and could help y'all in some way. You take care and get lots of rest (like you can do much else in the hospital, huh? LOL) You're in my prayers!

  3. Oh I can't imagine how hard that is. REst and take care of yourself. I'll be praying for you.

  4. Oh dear, I hope all continues to do well. Resting is a tough thing to when you're used to go, go, going! My prayers are with you and your little ones.

  5. Sarah,
    I do pray that the Lord keeps you and the baby both healthy, and that you won't deliver until the time is just right!

  11. I just got out of the hospital... so, I know a bit of how you feel (though I don't have two little ones waiting for me back home).
    Praying for a quick recovery!
