~Our baby is in Heaven~

~This is NOT how I had planned to spend our Memorial Day weekend.
On Saturday Phillip took me to the ER with concerns of baby and I.  We didn't get encouraging news!
Our kids helped us pack this fun patriotic basket full of snacks for Phillip and I to eat in the ER.~

Then, on Sunday morning, I had a miscarriage at our home  ­čśą
Jesus is holding our precious baby in His arms today!
As our Pastor said it,
"Underneath your baby are the everlasting arms!"
Having a miscarriage was NOT on my bucket list of things to do in this life, but "All things work together for good to them that Love the Lord!"

Our Abigail is still "A big sister," just won't get to help Mommy with her baby brother or sister Here in this life! ­čś×


 ~We have decided to name our baby "Mercy."
It was God's mercy that loaned us the baby for a few weeks, and it was God's mercy that spared my life yesterday.
I had miscarried at home from 7:30 A.M. till 4:00 PM with a midwife guiding me over the phone.
But at 4:00 I fainted!!!!!  I fainted Due to so much blood loss and within three minutes Phillip was rushing me to the ER.
When I got to the ER my blood pressure was 72 over 41 and my hands were going numb.
I felt nauseated, and honestly thought I might be joining our baby in heaven.
But the nurses started working very fast and put an IV in each arm, gave me several liters of fluid, put oxygen on me, and did an EKG to check on my heart. Then they rushed me in for an emergency D and C.
How I thank God that we live close to a hospital, for their efficient care, for the care of my wonderful Phillip, and that God spared my life. ~Heather~

~The pic representing a Mother handing over her baby to Jesus...was in our hospital room and meant a lot to Phillip and I!~
 ~We had thought of sending our kids to church by themselves, with the Hausmans, but Thank the LORD, on Saturday night, Phillip had decided that our whole family should stay home on Sunday.  I have NO CLUE what we would have done without having our older kids to help us during this traumatizing day!
My wonderful sister Laura and her family brought over our delicious Sunday dinner.  It was such a blessing.  I was too sick to think of getting pics of all her yummy food, but did grab a pic of her delicious pie.  She made a yummy pepper steak and sauce to go over rice, and homemade french bread, we told her we had plenty of salad, and she made this delicious Custard pie.~

~While we were in ER, Aunt Beth and some of her children drove down to be with our children!  It was the highlight of our kids' day, and they were SOOO HAPPY and comforted to have Aunt Beth, Sophia, Isaiah, and baby Ava with them.  Thank you, Beth, for coming.~
 ~Isn't baby Ava just a dolly?  We love her!~
 ~Cousins, minus Joshua, Jeremiah, and our baby whom we have named "Mercy" who is now in Heaven.~
 ~Today on Memorial day our dear Pastor and wife came over and brought a Delicious lunch from Olive Garden!!~
 ~The Eisenharts always go way out...so we have enough yummy food for 7 days. :-) ~
 ~Yummy meats and pastas, these desserts, yummy peach tea, bread sticks,...
 ~and 2 bowls of salad.~
 ~The boxes the food came in provided fun entertainment for Abigail.  Abigail doesn't understand that Mommy doesn't have a baby in her tummy anymore, so she has no CLUE why she is receiving TONS of hugs and kisses right now.  She is such a comfort to my Mommy heart!~
 ~My friend Misty who has lost 5 babies, put this on my FB page.  When I read it, I wept out loud!!!~

THANK YOU for All your SWEET comments, love, thoughts, prayers, meals, etc. they mean the world to our family during this difficult time!!! 

~Heather~ with Phillip and our 6  ....7 precious children!!!

~Happy Birthday, Elijah!!!


~Look who turned 8!!!!~

 ~Elijah is OUR ALL ENERGY LITTLE BOY...who has a tender conscience, is fun-loving, and very caring, and loves Jesus. 

~He's learning to work hard...and helped his Daddy and Noah mulch someone's lawn today.~
 ~We took him to what we call the "Park under the Bridge" for his birthday supper, and grabbed his pics while we were there.~




 ~He LOVES this park~

~We went to DOLLAR TREE and got him some fun gifts to open.  
U. Dan and A. Carole sent him a nice card and gift card.
Gramp and Gram gave him a fun gift.
Grandpa and Grandma sent him money.~

 ~Elijah's main gift.~

 ~The boys gave their ripsticks to their friends Bubu and Valen in Argentina, so we got Elijah another ripstick.~
 ~Abigail getting into the ice chest.~
 ~At his supper at the park I went simple and served Corn dogs, Buffalo Chicken Dip, and Tortilla chips, celery and ranch, cupcakes, and ice cream bars.~
  ~Cupcakes from Sams.~


 ~It was so fun to have Daryl, Laura, and family join us.  We missed Kimberly who still is in TN with GG.~

 ~Abigail LOVED her cupcake.~
 ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
I want to THANK JESUS for His protection! The other day we were coming home and we were going through a green light, when Phillip happened to look to his right and a person was running a red light and would've come right into my door!!!!!!!!
Phillip screeched to a stop and they Screeched to stop and we barely missed each other!
Thank you, Dear Jesus, for your protection when we see it, and your protection when we don't! ­čśŐ

~Iron sharpeneth Iron~

This sign that I got recently has a good message.

~"God doesn't give us what we can handle,
He helps us handle what we are given." ~

 ~Early on Wednesday mornings my friend Dorcas and I (and sometimes other ladies,)  can usually be found meeting together praying for our city of Cincinnati.  Dorcas felt this on her heart and started this prayer ministry.  Our husbands Matt and Phillip usually pray together as well.
I love these times when we draw closer to God and "sharpen" and encourage each other as well. :-)
Last Wednesday, she moved it to lunch time, made a lovely lunch for the kids and I, and then while the kids played outside in the MUD, we talked and prayed together.  Here's our selfie...a tad blurry, but we at least were able to capture the memory. :-) ~ 
 ~Dorcas served a yummy soup, lovely salad, grilled chicken, cheese and cracker tray, broccoli and ranch, and this yummy dessert of fresh black berries, strawberries, and white choc. covered strawberries, and Oreo cookie balls.~
 ~The girls.~
 ~The boys.~
 ~I should have had Noah take a picture of Dorcas and I. 
The kids played out here in the MUD and rain, and got COVERED from head to toe.  I wish I would have thought to take a pic, but I was in too much of a HURRY to get them cleaned up and run to our missions service we were to have at our own CNC church. :-) ~
 ~We took the time one day to mix up these Yummy choc. chip cookies for the fam...using Aunt Libby's recipe.~
 ~Cousin time playing in the mulch that a friend gave to Phillip....that was waiting to be distributed around our yard. :-)

 ~Sister giggly time on the road!~
 ~Family time at the park under the bridge. (Yes, I was feezing.)~
 ~GG and Kimberly in TN having devotion time together out on GG's deck.~
 ~Kimberly is Loving having things like fried okra and being with GG.~
 ~A fun little cast iron sign we bought in Argentina that Phillip hung on our bathroom door.~
 ~Due to how BUSY life has been recently, Baby and I have been doing a lot of RESTING...so this was my "tea on the couch" pic, messy hair and all.~
 ~Kimberly sent this pic of GG's beautiful pics.~
 ~Elijah and Mary found real clay in our back yard and made some bowls.  But, then of course, when we tried to bake them, they broke. :-( ~
 ~This is what happens to one's belly when you go to make a jump on your bike, and the handle bar twists and goes into your belly. :-(  
POOR ELIJAH!  We felt so badly for him!!  But it's healing now, Thank the Lord.~
Prayers appreciated for baby and I, and Abigail as we ride down to TN with my parents on Monday.  
We will get to see GG and Kimberly and then on Wednesday we will head to VA for my niece Kate's wedding.  Phillip and the kids and Brittany will come down on Thursday for the wedding.  The wedding is Friday evening, and then we will DRIVE all night Friday night to get back for my niece Natasha's graduation from G.B.S.   
I want to go down on Monday, so that baby and I don't have 2 LONG trips back to back (Thursday and then again on Friday.)
I have been on the mission field for years and have missed several of my family's special events, so I want to make it to these, WITH GOD'S HELP!!!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS!
~HEATHER~
