Little Stones

On Sunday the 13th of March, Harry was rushed to hospital by ambulance with what we later found out was a kidney stone. I followed in my car and sat with him in A & E for the whole time.
He was able to pass it while we were there and we came home later that night.

Little did we know that our daughter and her husband were having a ‘little Stone’ of their own (their surname) at the same hospital.  Jacob Thomas was born two weeks early at 10.51pm weighing 7lb 4oz.

 1 But now, this is what the LORD says—
   he who created you, O Jacob,
   he who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
   I have summoned you by name; you are mine.

On a Tuesday at nine days old (still not even full due date) he was able to go home with his Mummy and Daddy. I was able to have my first cuddles of our third grandchild and bond in a way that only a Nana can.

 13 For you created my inmost being;
   you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
   your works are wonderful,
   I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
   when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
 16 your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
   were written in your book
   before one of them came to be.
