After much prayer, Aaron and I decided to go ahead and proceed with the C-section. It was a hard choice for me especially to make since I had all these dreams of going into labor naturally and giving everyone the "call" to let them know we were heading to the hospital. It's been tough letting go of my expectations of how I thought the birth should be, but after having a good cry over it I know that we made the right decision. At my appointment this coming Monday we will find out when our little boy's birthday is going to be...if it's up to me, it will be 04/04/08, but we'll see what my doctor says. So, I guess now y'all can pray for a safe delivery via the C-section, and an uncomplicated removal of the cyst. I've never been "under the knife" before, so pray that I don't have any apprehension about the surgery. I watched a C-section performed from start to finish on YouTube a while back, so I know what will be happening. Having that knowledge is both comforting and scary at the same time. They sure do tug a lot at the incision when they're opening it up! My doctor is a pro at doing C-sections, and I totally trust her abilities, so I'm really not too worried!:) Also, knowing that I have a multitude of people praying for me makes me even more at peace with this whole situation. Thanks everyone! Y'all are amazing!
