Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

...for all of the prayers, encouragement, and support. I continue to be overwhelmed and humbled by how many people we have praying for us. I honestly believe Wyatt would not have held out this long without all of your prayers. This has definitely tested my faith like nothing I have experienced in life, but how can I not have faith more than ever when I see how the body of Christ has come together to support us.

"...But God has combined the members of the body and has given greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it." I Cor. 12:24-26 NIV

As for the hospital stay - last night and today in the hospital have been relatively boring. There were a couple of small misunderstandings regarding doses and when to dose, etc. For all of you that have been in the hospital before, I am sure you can relate. Luckily for me the wonderful nurse from yesterday was here again today. Considering this is a labor & delivery floor they don't seem to understand my persistence and lack of patience regarding treatment for my unborn children. I guess they have more to worry with than just me. The only peak into the babies world I have gotten today is through the fetal heart rate monitoring. They both look beautiful. We will have scans at 2:30 pm tomorrow to see if all this Albumin has propped Wyatt's blood flow up for a little longer. Because of the fluids, steroids, and the Albumin, not to mention the twin pregnancy, I am at an increased risk for Pulmonary Adema (fluid in my lungs) so my paranoid self has requested that Todd spend the night with me tonight. Of course, he agreed willingly. So, we'll see how much sleep he gets between nurse visits every two hours or so.

I almost forgot...we get growth scans in addition to the doppler scans tomorrow afternoon. Please pray again that Wyatt is now two pounds. It is so upsetting to me when we do these and he hasn't grown.

This mommy of twin boys is praying for you all! God id do good and he is able! Glad things have been "relatively boring" for you guys, that is a good thing (as I'm sure that you're aware)! Try to get some rest and we'll be praying!

How lucky these babies are to have a mother who will fight for them at any cost! There is a reason that you were chosen to be the parents of these precious boys. Hope you receive good news today. I am thinking of you always, and checking in on you often. I know how you feel regarding Wyatt's growth, my baby stopped growing in the last six weeks of pregnancy, each week you pray for just one ounce -- nothing like what you are going through though.

Love from our family to yours

L&D "beds" for men = torture racks. Get all of your ground pads, sleeping bag, etc. and get ready to bear down T.

We continue to pray as well.

I know Wyatt will be of sumo wrestler weight tomorrow :) I have never been in the hospital to have children yet...but I am assuming this might be a good time for tons of magazines...soap operas...and ice cream! We are still praying...

Love, Amanda and Tim

Thou rushing wind that art so strong,
Ye clouds that sail in heav'n along,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou rising morn, in praise rejoice,
Ye lights of evening, find a voice!
O praise Him, O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

I'll br praying!
God is good.

Thank you so much for your sweet comments.

I am praying that Wyatt and Parks come through like little champions. They have a couple of great parents to look up to.
