Scary hours

Dear praying friends,

Amy wrote that last e-mail/blog-post here in Trujillo from our apartment while in labor.  Shortly after sending that letter a tiny, fully formed, lifeless little boy was born.  We thought that the difficulties were over but in reality they were just beginning.  Amy bled all night, got weaker and weaker, fainted a few times and then went into convulsions. 

I woke up the neighbor and we hauled Amy down four flights of stairs to the car and then on to the maternal clinic.  When we arrived her pulse was way down and they thought she might need a blood transfusion.  The big problem was that the placenta had not been expelled which was causing her to lose more and more blood.  She went into the surgery room and about twenty minutes later the doctor came out saying that we had made it just in time. 

In the end she didn't need a blood transfusion and now her hemoglobin count is back up.  Presently Amy is fast asleep at the clinic and gaining her strength back.  Please pray for a fast recovery and for no further complications.  We thank the Lord that this did not happen in the jungle where things would have been more difficult and for God's protection during these last few scary hours.

Praising God that Amy's life was spared. Just grieving over the life of a wonderful Christian woman who went to be with the Lord recently. She had 9 children from 3 weeks to 17 years old. Despite the loss, God is glorified. We rejoice that God's ways are higher than our ways and His understanding is much greater. May He comfort you and strengthen you. Will keep you in our prayers.

I will pray for Amy and your family. Sorry for your loss, but you know the eternal perspective which must make it easier. Not easy, but easier. This post, her letter and her announcement were all so touching...
