Day 9 and counting

Family and Friends,

We are in Day 9 at hospital and I am so thankful!!  I know most people say they want out of the hospital but not us.  We are praying for our goals everyday and we are so excited that we are 9 days away from viability for our sweet Hadley.  Though we know God's plan is greater than any set week the doctor's say and we trust that he will take care of Hadley know matter what week she comes. 

Tomorrow I will have another sonogram to see how much fluid I have and to check on Hadley.  One of the signs of a healthy baby is movement and Hadley has no problem reassuring me on this :)  She is a mover and a shaker and every time I feel her move I am reminded of how blessed I am.  God picked us to be her to be her mother.  Can't think of anything more amazing than that.

Please continue to pray for no infection, fluid to increase, Hadley to stay healthy, Briley to be safe when she is away from us, and for us to continue to trust God's plan.

Ran across this scripture today and wanted to share with you....

"Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don't forget to thank Him for His answers. If you do this, you will experience God's peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ." Philippians 4: 6-7

I love that God tells us point blank don't worry about anything.  Of course being human, that is hard for us but instead we should pray continuously about our worries and when he does answer them, THANK him.  I know at times I forget to do that and I know that is one thing God is teaching me right now.  Pray continuously and Thank him continuously.

I thank God so much for everything he has given me.  I am especially thankful for family and friends like you praying for us and our sweet Hadley.

Will update again soon!!

In Christ's Love,
The Bufe's
Daniel, Melissa, Briley, and Hadley

I read this in the notes from BSF today and immediately thought of y'all. "Those who know and trust the true God can look to the future with courage & confidence, not because they see every detail of its landscape, or because they can control it, but because the God of the universe, who cares for them, has it perfectly under HIS rule." We love y'all and are praying for each of you every day!

Hi Melissa,

What a beautiful, loving and thoughtful blog you have. I'm only so sorry that I have found in this difficult time of yours. I won't pretend to imagine what you are going through, but I do know what an inspiration you are to others. Briley is a VERY blessed girl to have such Godly loving parents and she will certainly grow and learn from you both...especially in your awe-ispiring way of pushing forward using God's strength right now.

I will certainly keep you, Daniel, Briley and Hadley in my prayers. I wish you well Melissa.
