Keep Babies Growing!

That's the goal......

No contractions.
While the magnesium sulfate IV accomplished the no contraction goal......
it made Amber so violently ill she couldn't eat and drink.
You have to EAT in order to 'grow' the babies.
They started the IV at 10:00 this morning and by 5:30 they had to stop it and begin to flush it out of her system.

It's been a rough day. She is still suffering from a terrible headache and nausea but is slowing coming back to the new 'normal' of just feeling awful!!!
She is now sipping a shake with protein powder ordered by the nutritionist yesterday.
Mike is here with her so she is finding comfort in him being near.
Not sure what the game plan will be tomorrow but we will find out!
Growing babies is hard work!!!

So far I have made the drive downtown and back very well.
LOVE the valet parking here.
Time to pack up and go back to Amber's house.

Good night all........


  1. Good night, Linda .....Amber's Guardian Angel-Mother!

  2. Bless her heart. Is the Doctor going to at least give her a RX for the massages? I hope so as she deserves SOME pleasure out of this ordeal. Besides her muscels need it.

  3. Another day done that is goof

  4. one more day under the ole' belt...tomorrow will be better, i can feel it!!

  5. Hang in there Amber and Quadlettes!
    We're praying and pulling for all of you! Your a trooper pretty Mamma!
    Those babe's are blessed!

  6. Hoping and praying that Amber feels better tomorrow with the medication flushed out of her system. So glad she has you and Mike there with her. Keep us updated.

  7. Praying that whatever is needed...meds, no meds, whatever is needed...happens. God knows all things. He's not surprised by any of it. Praying for Amber to feel well enough to eat and drink and rest. Praying for her husband to be a strong support and I know that you and your precious hubby are on the front line, too. Blessings to all...

  8. Again Thank you for the updates, please let Amber know not only are her Texas family and friends praying for her and the little ones so are all of us in the blogosphere..While it might/is rough right now when she holds those little ones, all this will be worth it.
    And from one Grandma who hates driving highways any distance sending you a huge high five..Way to Go!!

  9. Always keeping Amber and Mike and the babes as well as you and LD in my thoughts. Brave driving today. Remember to get enough sleep/water/etc. yourself. You are all in my prayers as are the professionals looking after Amber and the babes.

  10. I hate so bad that the mag is making her so sick. Praying the days will get easier. Love and prayers for all of you and those sweet babies.

  11. So so sorry she is so sick. Keeping ya'll in my prayers.
