The downhill

I will be brief for tonight. I was admitted to the hospital last night. Things started to rapidly spiral downhill around 1pm on Tuesday. I started getting really crampy and then followed by painful contractions that were a few minutes apart. I can tell you more of the story tomorrow.
They put me on a mag sulfate infusion (aka-the most awful medicine ever!) for 12 hours. I've received 2 steroid shots to help these precious little ones lungs develop.
Every hour is a roller coaster. I've started dilating, but we are still praying and hopeful for one or two more weeks.
I will be in the hospital until our strong son and daughter arrive into this world. I will post when I can.
Please continue to pray for our sweet babies as well as our sweet Ella whose world is chaos right now.
Dear Ella,
I miss you, love you, and I will get to see you soon. My heartbreaks for you. I know you must be wondering why I haven't been able to play with you much...and suddenly am not there in our home with you. But we will be together again. I cry so hard because I miss you so is like a piece of my heart is missing.
But very soon, my love, you will be blessed with a brother and sister. And they will be a blessing to just wait and see!
I love you a thousand times!

Sarah, I will be praying like crazy tonight,and until the day those two are safe with you at home. Praying that God does something MIRACULOUS with these babies of yours, and uses your story to inspire others and glorify Him. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you, anytime.

I will be praying all day everyday until you have those two miracles.

Hi Sarah,
My name is Kim and I found your blog through Courtney's and have been praying for you and your twins for a few weeks. I gave birth to boy/girl twins in 24 weeks and 5 days. It has been such a roller coaster and such a scary experience...but one with a happy ending. I just wanted to encourage you and let you know I'm still praying like crazy and to let you know that I can TOTALLY understand your situation. I hope your babies stay in for several weeks....if not, know God is amazing and will hold your hand through the emotional ride called NICU.

I am weeping for you/with you. And I am praying for you. May God hold your heart closer than ever and give you peace.

Love you, friend.

Sending up lots of prayers for you and those sweet babies.

I am thanking God that you have made it to 25 weeks and praying that the medication will buy you several more weeks for your sweet babies even though I know the side effects are awful. In the long run, your sweet little girl probably won't remember this as I feel certain she is surrounded by loving, caring people.

"Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them..." So many are praying for you; God is listening and I am certain that His will will be shown through you.
