What a difference one makes from another.
By the way, I totally love the one we seem to frequent the most. That is Sumner Regional in Gallatin, TN,
The other is in Springfield and that is where Casey goes for her OB thanks to the insurance and that Sumner does not do maternity.
So, today, when I picked her up from a friends house, she was having some cramping in her lowed abdomen and some lower back pain. We put a call into the office and it was left up to her if she wanted to drive the 45 minutes to the ER in Springfield. She decided to er on the side of caution. We went. They were ok, except the doctor did not, at all look at us in the eye. Which I found to be rude. The nurses were sweet. The ultrasound tech was beautiful inside and out it seems. She was so nice to Casey and to myself. Though she could not answer any questions, she did tell us that the baby is very active and had a heartbeat of 165. So, because of that information, we were pleased that the baby is doing very well. She also told us that the wee one is 5cm in length.
She goes back in a couple of weeks to her OB, though I need to call the OB on Monday to see if she wants her seen sooner. I doubt it, but one can never be too sure.
Casey is no longer with the baby daddy. She decided she had had enough of him not wanting to be serious and man up so to speak. So, we are supporting her 100% in helping her support her child. She is doing school now and then once the wee one is born, she will have to get a job. The baby daddy is not going to be in the picture unless he chooses to be. We certainly are praying that he will step up, become a man and take care of his responsibilities, but at the moment, that is very doubtful. But we are praying for him.
God has been supplying our every need and it has been a joy in watching this all play out. Scary, but a joy. We count it ALL joy.
So, that is an update at the moment for our daughter.
It is not easy being a parent of a teen parent. Still too young to quite make decisions, yet old enough to make others. It is hard to figure out just where that line is. But with God’s grace, we are muddling our way through. We appreciate all the prayers and support that we have gotten so far. Keep up the prayers, they are certainly needed!
