We’re having a baby today!!!! Just got the news that they’re going to induce me this afternoon; I failed the preeclampsia test badly. Would appreciate prayers for Gavin’s safety and well-being. We’re soooo close at this point! Will update as I can.
That was my Facebook update a year ago today. A year!!! It feels like the blink of an eye. Last year at this time I was hooked up to multiple monitors, IV’s, and other medical equipment and hoping that my heart would hold steady and that Gavin could hold on just a little longer.
Tonight? I’m putting the finishing touches on decorations for his party tomorrow. And gearing up to run my 1st 5k race tomorrow morning.
I will run to celebrate the birth of my amazing little boy.
I will run to remember Gavin’s twin whom I hold in my heart although I was never able to hold him in my arms.
I will run to put the past away: the pregnancy complications, the miscarriage, the scary hospital stays, the painfulness, the postpartum depression. Things that I have overcome through God’s help.
I will run to show that I’m stubborn: it doesn’t matter if I’m not the fastest or the strongest. I will finish. When it comes to determination, you can’t beat me.
I will run because I can.
