Rachel and Evelyn both did great and have had a smooth recovery!
Evelyn came the day before her due date and only 10 hours after Rachel’s first contraction to her birth. We were expecting a late and long delivery, but I guess Evelyn was in a hurry to get here!
Everything went great at the hospital. Our favorite midwife happened to be in which was SUCH a blessing and our doula (birth assistant) was amazing! Although it was very intense, we were able to laugh and enjoy the whole process. They took great care of us and we wouldn’t have changed a thing.
Since her birth, we have had a lot of family visitors, had lots of medical appointments, and have moved out of our mission housing and in with Jesse’s parents. All of which have kept us very busy!
After Evelyn’s first two weeks with us, Jesse started getting back into work. We are SO grateful that we have had this time together and we know how rare it is to have this opportunity. We are just overwhelmed with the love and support we have felt from family, friends, church members, and some total strangers!
During Rachel’s pregnancy, the doctor’s noticed an abnormality near an ovary and it has continued to grow since then. This week, it was decided that Rachel will need surgery. We would appreciate prayer for this surgery. It has not yet been scheduled and we are not yet sure if it will delay our return to Uganda.
Thank you again for following along with us!
