She is 24 1/7 weeks pregnant with a baby girl now, and her water broke yesterday. She is in our hospital and we are doing all we can to help her. We watched the baby on ultrasound last night and it was a moment that stirred all of our hearts to watch this little girl moving and swallowing fluid it was such a relief and yet very scary.
She is now 24 2/7 today, please pray to keep this little "baby bean" inside of her mommy and healthy for as long as she can stay inside.
I want so badly for this pregnancy to last for this couple, they are one of the most amazing loving spiritual couples I have ever met, I just adore them and more then anything they want to parent a baby that lives here on earth with them.
(Due to HIPAA I can't not release names of the patient, however baby bean is not the name of the little girl, but just her nick name)

On to being sick... I am so over being sick, I have no voice still, and a bad cough, headache, fever and a runny nose, I am thinking about going to a homeopathic Dr. any thoughts or suggestions? On Tuesday, the Nuero Diagnostic place confirmed what I knew all along, that I have carpal tunnel in both wrists, which I knew already.... So now I am waiting for the verdict as far as what I do from here. I tried to explain to the VERY rude Dr. at the imaging place that I need my hands for my job, and the importance of having full function in both hands, he brushed me off and said "yeah yeah I know" RUDE very RUDE, luckily for him I was deathly ill so I just sat there, had he had the real Brittney in his presence I would have spoken my mind and walked right out! PS, no that is not me in the picture, it just describes how I feel lol....

Her baby Stellan was born at an interesting time in my life as a labor and delivery nurse. I will share a brief glimpse at her story:
"MckMuffin is our sweet newborn son S! In the womb, he was diagnosed with heart failure: premature atrial contractions at 20 weeks; supraventricular tachycardia, hydrops, and intermittent advanced secondary heart block at 23 weeks; and enlargement of the heart at 32 weeks. When the doctors told us at 24 weeks that our very ill baby would surely die, we chose to give our son completely to God, for He alone knows best. We have not stopped praising our Lord since then, for MckMuffin was healed and was born a well and whole full-term baby!! "
The faith that this family has exerted is amazing, please look around her blog, see the pictures of Stellans name all over the world, the people who know this baby only through a blog, who were praying for his life, the people who were trusting in the Lord. McKMamas blog is real, she takes us through her hospital stays, and NICU visits, BPP's, NST's etc.
Here is one more excerpt from her blog:
Here is her link, enjoy her blog:
"Exactly 13 weeks after being told by the doctors that our gravely ill unborn baby would surely die...
...our MckMiracle entered this world, completely healed!!!"
Another blog I found through McKMamas blog was: Bring the Rain
I can't tell you how many times I have read her blog and shed tears... I have attached a you tube video of a song her husband wrote. They were told their sweet baby girl would die as well, and they also chose to continue with the pregnancy... Yes, their sweet Audrey only lived a short time, however they left that decision to the Lord, and not to the Doctors to decide....
Please scroll down and stop my current music player before you play this video, so you can listen to the music...
I Will Carry You
There were photographs I wanted to take
Things I wanted to show you
Sing sweet lullabies, wipe your teary eyes
Who could love you like this?
People say that I am brave but I'm not
Truth is I'm barely hanging on
But there's a greater story
Written long before me
Because He loves you like this
So I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years
I will carry you
All my life
And I will praise the One Who's chosen me
To carry you
Such a short time
Such a long road
All this madness
But I know
That the silence
Has brought me to His voice
And He says...
I've shown her photographs of time beginning
Walked her through the parted seas
Angel lullabies, no more teary eyes
Who could love her like this?
I will carry you

Saturday Nov. 1st was Zacks homecoming party, it was a great time.. The day was a titch hairy, Bethany had to be picked up from work because she was violently throwing up, so she was put to bed at 7 with phenergan. Danielle has been battling a headache in the base of her skull for 7 days, and that day was no exception, so the night before she was put to bed with percocets! My parents had to come over and help me. Thank God for my parents and for my sister Mindy for coming over and getting it all together, because there was only so much I can do. Kris D. and Chad came over early as well, I just needed my BFF there to make me feel better as the world was crashing down around me, I made her yell PINK PINK PINK to me, and believe it or not it helped. Pink is a key word to relax, your getting uptight lol atleast its a keyword for Kris and I. She brought over delicious food it was soooo yummy, that made me feel better too.
Here are some party pics:
