Our Journey with Conjoined Twins
Abby & Erin
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
These few weeks have felt like forever. But thankfully I am feeling good physically and am not seeming to have any sort of complications that would worry me. We have a doctors appointment on Friday with my regular OB to check up on the twins and see how they are growing. Please say a prayer that they are doing well and growing like they should be. I am excited to see them again, I feel like it have been forever since I have be able to watch them wiggle and squirm!
On top of dealing with everything that goes along with conjoined twins (emotions, insurance, etc) we are seeming to have some financial issues which adds more stress than I even really knew possible. This past week my husbands truck died (his transmission went) and we were not prepared for this at all. So at the moment we are using just one car which means I am picking him up, and dropping him off at work. We are looking for a new car at the cheapest possibly price with at least some reliability. We are looking at cars, minivans, SUVs, literally almost anything that will drive. So if anyone knows of anyone selling a car in our area for a good deal, please please let us know. And on top of his car dying we are trying to get out of our trailer. It wasn't high on the priority list until I got pregnant. It really is an old little trailer with lots and lots of issues. Our rent has been up for a few months now and we are trying to either buy a house or rent a better bigger place, but again that requires money and we just lost a car, and I am on my last week of work. So in the financial aspect of everything right now we are in over our heads ugh! So please say a prayer for that because the added stress I can see is really tearing up Riley (my husband). He wants so badly to provide for our family and he does a fantastic job, but when it rains it pours right....
I will post another update after my doctor appointment on Friday to let everyone know how the babies are doing! Again please keep us in your prayers! Life isn't always easy but we will persevere. I know God has a plan for all of this and we just have yet to see it.
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
Again thank you all so much for your prayers and support! It really is all of you that help get us through!
My name is Heather Delaney. I married the love of my life Riley on 10/02/15 and we now have two beautiful girls Abby & Erin, who are conjoined twins, that were born 07/24/16. We are trusting that God is going to work all this out for his good!
