Getting Ready

Well, it's Thurday evening and we are only 3 days away from making our way to the hospital. My emotions seem to be on high. I am trying to prepare and am running out of time. I need to clean my house so it is clean when I return, I am trying to prepare my job for me to be out for the next five weeks, I need to pack my bag for the hospital...the list goes on. I had a couple blankies for Elisha I took downtown yesterday to get embroidered with Elishas name on it and I will pick those up tomorrow. I can't wait to see them. I had called this hospital to see if I could request the same nurse I had when I had Alexis, she was so wonderful to us, and guided us so great. However, she is no longer there and I was greatly saddened...and I PRAY hard we get a good nurse. Especially one that is understanding, and accepts our choice to carry our son. I am feeeling an enormous amount of stress and I feel helpless. There is nothing really anyone can help me with, it is all things I need to do. Elisha is moving more and more all the time, letting me know how much he loves me, and it makes me smile so. Well I should go no all this stuff isn't going to get done on it's own. Tomorrow is Friday and my last day of work, say a pray that I will be able to get all my work done. Thank you to all my friends and family, I love you all.

  1. Dear Shelley,

    I hope you don't think that I am some crazy person or something, but here it is!

    I am from the August WTE board and I remember the day that you found out about Elisha's condition. I, as a lurker have been checking the January boards ever since to see your progress.

    You are one of the bravest and most inspiring woman I have ever heard of. You and your courage have given me strength. I would like you to know that you and all of the people in your life are in my thoughts, prayers and hopes as you face Elisha's birthday.

    Much love, Mandy.

  2. Shelley, you are in my thoughts. I am praying that things go well for you in the delivery room. That you will have gracious attendants, a supportive staff, and that you get precious time with little Elisha before he joins our Lord in Heaven.

    I will especially pray this verse for you and your family: John 14:27. May it cover you in the peace of our Lord Jesus.

    God Bless,
    Celia

  4. If I ever was asked the question; who is my hero? I guess I would have to say ........ Shelley Belly. I have never known anyone who amazes me the way you do!
    I am so at awe with the strength and courage that you and Enrique have been so consistant with throughout the developement of baby Elisha. You have two wonderful loving parents that have raised a very beautiful, smart,strong and loving daughter that has touched so many lives. Your marriage to such a wonderful man has emmphasized on these qualities, and added other qualities that has made you such a remakable young lady. You, Enrique, Alexis, Elisha and KK are always in our hearts. Although there is little anyone can do for you, please know we are here for you.
    We love you,
    XOXO
    Your Auntie
