Samuel Bernard Keach aka: “Sammy-B”
3:45 am Saturday morning I woke up to Lisa saying “I think my water broke”. Sure enough it had. We hadn’t yet prepared our hospital bag, ‘we’ll do it tomorrow” we said over a period of two weeks. I was reminded of the scripture "Beware for no one knows the hour day or time". So we prepared our bag and headed off to the hospital. For the next 25 hours Lisa faught a very brave fight, I am so proud of my strong wife. At 5 am Sunday the doctor seemed concerned by the fact that 1) Lisa wasn’t dilating 2) Lisa was getting feverish and 3) the babies heart rate was raising.
Therefore the doctor wanted to do a caesarian section. This was a bummer, but Lisa agreed to it. At 6:12 am on Sunday January 15th Lisa gave birth to a 6.9 lb, 19 inch long baby boy named Samuel Bernard Keach.
Lisa and I are really exhausted, and really excited/ happy.
Please pray for us.
1) 1) For Samuel to grow in a healthy manner.
2) 2)For Lisa to have quick recovery physically and emotionally.
3) For God’s grace for us as we go through this exciting and unique time.
Thank you all for your support. We thank you for the prayers, the baby gifts, the encouragements. We are so incredibly blessed to have such amazing friends and family.
Ps in the next few days I will update the blog with an explanation for his name.
