Thank You!

I would like to thank all of you for the prayers on behalf of Amber. Those encouraging comments really do lift our hearts!


Louis Dean and I have spent the day here at the hospital with her......
and it has been a scary day!

After discontinuing the Magnesium Sulfate IV we needed another game plan.
She and Mike and the doctor kind of 'brainstormed' together this morning and came up with one.

Procardia (blood pressure med to relax the uterus and calm contractions) was resumed but it wasn't enough. She started having 9-10 pretty good contractions an hour......so they added Indocin - which is actually a drug used to treat arthritis - but they found it effective in  treating cases of multiple birth pre term labor. This seems to be doing the trick......the contraction monitor has showed a calmer pattern. At least for now. Just buying precious time. We need at least 10 more days! Amber is 23 weeks today!

Plan A is now a distant memory! We are adapting.
As I write now - LD and I are planning on going home in the morning.
I shall return very SOON, I'm sure!!

Pam was home this weekend and we were talking about that Mag stuff. She said usually kicked most womens butt. Amber is one strong young lady as if we didn't already know that.
