David & Amanda Scott

As you know we have been praying for David and Amanda Scott. Recently they found out that their baby girl still in the womb has spina bifida. Amanda is at 22 weeks. Today at a check up they learned that their baby is not gaining weight and basically needs to double her weight in the next two weeks or the percentages are heavily against her surviving. She weighs just over 300 grams and needs to get to 600 grams by 24 weeks at which time they may need to do a c-section.

This very difficult and daunting news comes on the heels of a great report they received last week that showed no chromosomal abnormalities. As you can imagine, it has been an exhausting emotional roller coaster for them. 

David and Amanda expressed much gratitude for your continued prayers. Please pray specifically that the baby would gain weight and also that God would undergird the Scotts with strength and peace. Amanda has been put on bed rest and asked that we also pray that God would help her mind not to wander and worry as she is resting.

Thank you for your prayers and I will update you when we know more.
