Today hasn't been too bad of a day.  It's quite an improvement from yesterday.  Yesterday, the doctor that was doing the rounds was really negative with us, and told us that anything they do from here on out was just to preserve Babies B, C, and D, and that Baby A won't make it. I realize the risks and understand what all the "statistics" say, but I still have a good outlook on things.  It's really hard to stay that positive on days like yesterday, but today is definitely better.  

I've been sleeping much better the past couple of nights.  Our new room is the furthest away from the entrance, so we don't hear a lot of noise from the hallways.  Also, I am oral antibiotics now, so I don't need to be attached to that horrible IV machine any more.  The nurses pretty much leave us alone from 11pm to 6:30am, so it's not too bad.

Josh strongly encouraged me to go for a ride in the wheelchair today even though I didn't want to.  I was glad I did, because we sat out in the sun and ate lunch.  We also found a great place to sit outside and watch the yachts come in from the bay.  I think it will also make a good place for our wonderful dogsitters to come and bring the dogs to see me.  I miss them sooo much!  I am going to try and get out at least once a day to enjoy the nice weather.  I felt so much better after I did.

Wednesday is our next sheduled ultrasound, so please keep us in your prayers.  We are still hopeful for a miracle.  

Love you all,


  1. praying for you...stay POSITIVE - thus far, you are doing an amazing job. i know how hard it is to lay in a hospital bed not knowing what the next day, the next hour will bring...

    praying for good news on wednesday!

  3. You amaze me girl! Just sent you an email.

  4. Glad you got out in the sunshine (I'm a little jealous you had sunshine to see today :) )
    We believe in miracles and pray that God does an amazing work in these little ones. I sent you email and will try to get that info to you. Love to you both and those little beans.

  5. Lauren, I can understand how you feel, some Dr's don't understand that you are also being cared for the by The Great Physician who does not work with stats, but works with miracles. The Dr's were like that when we had Sarah and God surprised them all. We love you and will keep praying.

  6. oh, I'm so sorry you had to hear such harsh words from that doctor! Keep trusting in the God of miracles, and know that He holds those four little babies safe in his heart & hands even now. Read through Psalm 139 and know he's talking about your babies!

    Still praying fervently for all of you.

  7. Staying positive and optimistic can have such a huge impact on everything. Trust your instincts and hold tight to your faith. I know all too well what an impact a negative doctor can have. Hang in there and good luck on Wednesday. You continue to be n our thoughts and prayers.
