More Information

I will be passing on information as I get it...
Isaac weighed 4 lbs and 12 oz and almost 17'' long with fuzzy strawberry blonde hair and mommy's nose and lips and daddy's ears.
Nurse Kathy came and talked with us. Kathy was with them through the whole procedure. She said that Stacy was so courageous throughout the spinal and the c-section. She was doing 'well' but was struggling with the pain. Kathy was saying they are monitoring that closely, because Stacy wants relief from the pain but also wants to be 'with it' enough to experience this time. The grandparents and siblings are with Stacy and Spencer meeting Isaac right now.

What Angie had to say about Audrey back in April keeps coming to mind -- Isaac's life had "weight" in this world, and beyond. Thank you, God, for that. Stacy, we'll be praying for peace, rest, and freedom from the c-section pain. hugs.

My prayers are with the family right now. I cannot imagine the feelings and emotions they are going through. This reminds me of the Dixie Chicks' song, "Godspeed". I pray healing and peace over this family in the name of Jesus!

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Godspeed

My daughter sent this to me with the simple request to pray for this mother and family. I clicked on the link and went to the very beginning and read every entry. As I got into the month of October and started reading, it hit me Isaac's birth was happening TODAY. I have prayed for you and Spencer asking Him to hold you close in His arms and comfort you. Know that Isaac is in His hands. May you find comfort and strength in all the prayers that are being sent up for you,Spencer and little Isaac today.

Praying for you on the hardest day a person can experience. I delivered my stillborn twin daughters in July, and the grief I have experienced has been the deepest and darkest of my life. I know that Isaac is up in Heaven with my Vivian and Annemarie, and that gives me comfort. Know that your family is loved, and that Isaac made a positive impact on the lives of so many people- he had a greater positive impact than some people have in a century of life! Although his breaths were few, his life had great meaning. Many hugs to you as you hold eachother up in your grief.

Lord may this scripture be full of hope for your beautiful children today. Be the God of comfort and peace to them...

Ecclesiastes 7:1-4

A good name is better than fine perfume,and the day of death better than the day of birth. It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting,for death is the destiny of every man; the living should take this to heart.Sorrow is better than laughter, because a sad face is good for the heart.The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning, but the heart of fools is in the house of pleasure.

May Christ's peace be yours today. I am praying for you.

Stacy... It's 3:50am where I am, and I woke and had to see how you are. Congratulations, Sweetheart, on becoming a mother. I am sure he was so astonishingly beautiful. I will go back to bed now, and pray hard for you, that the pain will subside, and you can share this beautiful time with your son, as you heap a life time of love onto him. I am praying still, that Jesus will seem not only very close, but that He is right there with you, weeping with you, and lovong on Isaac with you. Much love to Spencer also, as I am sure he's struggling to grieve his son and support his courageous, beautiful wife at the same time. You two astonish me with your grace and dignity. Isaac would be proud to have you both as parents.

Stacy & Spencer,

Congratulations on the birth of your son! My deepest sympathies that he only was able to spend a short time here with you. My son Joshua went to be with the Lord on March 15th of this year - he had a severe neural tube defect. He lived 67 (very unexpected) days.

I saw Angie Smith and Kristy Bolte post about Isaac's birth and passing this morning.

I'm thinking of you, praying for you, and am so thankful that you chose to wait til the end of your pregnancy to give Isaac the best chance. Every kick was precious, wasn't it?

Sockrma18 said...

No words here could ever take away the pain in your heart...only the knowledge that God is now holding your son in His arms. My heart breaks, aches and rejoices for you all at the same time. Be still and know that God is with you, for you and working His wonderful plan for you. God bless you....

After my daughter died, one of the most meaningful things someone said to us was "I'm sorry, I don't know what to say. I love you." So that is what I would like to say to you now. Words can't say what I want to convey. I will continue to pray for you and Spencer and your families.

Today I say this from Sara, and have never met either of you before, but my heart and prayers go out to each of you during this painful, and yet a little joyous time holding your beautiful baby boy.
My God be with you through this period of time, and know that your son is looking down from above with a smile so big, that he had two wonderful parents.
My prayers are with you today and the days to come.

Stacy, God Bless you and your entire family. I have followed your blog through this entire journey and wish you peace and strength. God Bless baby Issac.

I only just found your blog today, through Angie's blog. I want so much to sign your comments but I am at a loss for words. I wish I had known much earlier about your blog so I could have been praying for you much longer than this. I am praying for you right now for your pain levels and for peace, comfort, and healing.

Congratulations on the birth of your sweet precious baby boy, and I am praising God that he lived for 16 minutes and you all are able to hold him and love on him.

My heart aches for you over his loss! All I know to do is to pray for you. Lord, bring your peace...

You have touched so many people through your story. I admire the courage and grace that you have carried yourself with through this journey. Please know that you and your faith are an inspiration to so many people. Words cannot possibly soothe the pain your heart must be in right now, but know that you and your family are in our hearts and minds right now.

I am so sorry for your horriffic loss. Words are of no comfort, I am sure, but remind yourself sometimes that Isaac only knew your love, which I am sure he embraced. For that he is blessed, just as you are for carrying him and being a wonderful mother. You and your husband and Isaac are in my thoughts and prayers.

Lindsey said...

Your family is the most amazingly strong family I have ever read about. I'm so glad you had 16 minutes to hold your sweet baby boy. He is now playing in the playground of Heaven. He has many friends up there.

I will continue to pray for your family. (((HUGS)))

Stacy,
I have been thinking about you all day and the song "Blessed be Your Name" just came to my mind- it is so true in your case..."You give and take away. My heart will choose to say Lord, blessed be Your name."

With everyone that has been praying for you, I have to admit that I was hoping with all my heart this morning to read that the doctors were wrong with their diagnosis, or that Isaac had been miraculously cured.

I can't even begin to try to comprehend why this happened to your family, but you, Spencer, and Isaac must be a part of something so much bigger than any of us can imagine. One day we can find out why stuff like this has to happen. I pray for you to heal physically, mentally, and spiritually.

I lost my daughter at birth 4 years ago. I feel your pain and I am praying your season of grief is brief and I am confident that no believer will suffer in vain. God will redeem your pain. "He works all things to the the good of those who love Him" praise God for your son how precious he is. Julie justicejulie@yahoo.com
