I am currently typing this at Good Sam, our hospital. Apparently, my 24-hour test for pre-eclampsia came back high :( So, my docs said "go to the hospital and be admitted for observation." That was yesterday (Tuesday) at 4:00PM. Good news is they ran some blood work here at the hospital and my liver enzymes and platelet levels came back normal. The bad news is my blood pressure is going up, e.g. 142 or 144/65 :( That with my abnormal 24-hour pre-e test means I have to stay here. They are giving me two steroid shots to help the babies' and their lungs develop. Thank goodness I'm not on any pre-term labor meds or continuous contraction monitoring, as it stinks to be hooked up to all those things.
Please pray for us, especially for me in dealing with being admitted to the hospital. We knew this was a possibility but I am resisting it. We thought I could be here for a few days but talking to the doc today, he said "you're here from here on out. we want to watch you and the babies." Blech! Pray for our quad girls, that they would continue to develop and be in utero for as long as possible, e.g. 4 to 6 weeks more weeks. I had an ultrasound today and they all look great - good heart rates and weights between 2lbs 13 oz and 2lbs 8oz. Pray for Paul and Jared in being away from me (and me away from them!) and them traveling to and from the hospital to see me.
We appreciate your prayers!!!!
