Remember Mr. and Mrs. Cookie?

Well, they just shared that they are expecting a little chocolate chip, er, I mean a baby! I am so excited for them. The two of them are so sweet, I know they'll make splendid parents.

Gretchen and Ryan Mack
Ryan has asked that we pray for Gretchen. She has a partially detached retina that requires surgery and, if at all possible, to postpone it until after the first trimester. They meet with the doctor in another week to see if it has gotten any worse. Pray for healing and a healthy baby. Congratulations you two! We're praying.

This from Ryan:
Good News, the doctor did laser surgery in his office yesterday to fix the problem, and no invasive surgery was required. We go back in a week to check it, so pray for that and for a fast recovery, but this is quite minor to what we had thought. Good stuff, God stuff.

We'll need to hold this baby as much as possible as a newborn, because it will be 3 feet long within a month.
We're praying for the Macks and the Mackling.

What a sweet-looking girl. I was struck by her radiance the fist time you published her photo. Now I know why!

Will add her to my prayer list...

Tracie, how are YOU? Head still "cooking?"

The longer I live, the more I find myself praying. I think it's a good thing! There's so much need...

Michele- Funny girl. I never did hear the due date, did you?

Maria- She is so sweet. I'm thankful that she is friends with Naida. They run together and did two different triathlons last year.
I'm feeling ok. You were right about the crashing thing coming off steroids. How long did it last for you?

Oh thanks for the love, Gretchen is due March 19. I figure that's a good date because the baby could be a little early and be born on February 29, or a little late and be born on April 1. I'm hopping for the 29th.

On the eye front, the OB said Gretchen can have the surgery any time, so that might be happening iun the next few weeks. She's not looking forward to the down time, but hopefully we'll know what she'll be up against next week. Okay have fun at Meeks all.

Hey Ryan- Thanks for the update! Do you think she could shoot for March 9th? The baby would share the date with Leann R. and myself. Meredith's is the 16th of March along with Sandy Anderson and Camille (Bo and Denise's daughter). March is a very popular month...Judy R is at the end, too.
I like the idea of a leap year baby.
If it's April 1st, it will share with Bo.
Let us know about the surgery date.

How cute that they will be new parents soon! Everyone else's pregnancies seem to go by much quicker than mine.

Tracie said...

Sadie- I know, it's hard to picture our petite little Gretchen pregnant.
I barely remember your pregnancy and now look, your baby is 2! Happy Birthday to Andy.

Ryan- Thanks for the great update! What an answer to prayer. Still praying for a fast recovery.

Good news, Gretchen went in to check how successful the laser sugery was, and it was successful enought to give her a three onth reprieve from the speciallist. So it must have worked. Thanks for the prayer.
