Journey to Parenthood

I want to be purposeful about journaling during this time in our lives as we watch our miracle micro preemie, Asher, continue to grow and thrive. I began this blog during my month of bed rest at the hospital while I was pregnant with Asher and his brother Titus. We continue to hope and trust the Lord for Asher's future. This blog begins with the story of how both of our boys came to be. They came about after many tears, many prayers, and many months of crushed hopes. On February 2, 2012, our boys Titus Bauer and Asher Mark were born at just 23 weeks and 2 days gestation. My water around Titus broke at 19 weeks, so his lungs were very underdeveloped. Titus lived 45 minutes and is now living a perfect life in heaven as he watches over his little brother Asher. Two and a half years later God redeemed our story of hurt with a precious full term baby brother for Asher. We are humbled by how the Lord has loved on us in our journey through parenthood.

Asher's Surgery Tomorrow!

Asher will have 3 procedures tomorrow! He will have his esophagus dilated, a hernia repaired, and a circumcision. Please pray for no side effects from the anesthesia, and no complications from any of these procedures! There is a risk that the esophagus could be torn during a dilation--this would be an emergency situation. We are not sure if he will need 5 dilations or just depends on how his esophagus responds. We are praying he will not need many procedures and and can be on his way to eating by mouth soon- he hasn't gotten a chance to learn that, so we hope he can soon. Our big boy is also 6lbs now and we are so thankful!!! Thank you SO much for your prayers for Asher!!
