A Better Day!

Today has been a better day for Amber. They started her on Indocin yesterday and the contractions eased up and allowed her to rest some. She actually took a pretty good nap this afternoon sleeping for over an hour and a half!
We are certainly nearing the end of this journey as she just had a couple of long strong contractions. The doctors and nurses all agree this will just go on and on until they get so far along and WON'T stop. Good to know.

Amber's 'Table of Encouragement' holds flowers and cards from friends and family.
The lovely flowers in the foreground just arrived today from Summer.
Flowers really DO have a way of cheering you up every time you look at them!

I took the little blankies home and washed them again.
They are all clean and ready for the big day.

I left Louis Dean at home today doing Critter Care.

I am just about to pack up my stuff and head out.
Not sure if Amber will make it through the weekend!
She feels more comfortable knowing her doctor is on call.
I don't plan to come back until Monday unless the action picks up.
I WILL call and check on her before I put hair color on tomorrow afternoon!

Wow...almost to Week 29. I think Amber has done amazing and I'm very happy to think that her doctor is on call. I'm sure that he doesn't want to miss this event.

Beautiful cheery and cheering flowers...

Get rested up this weekend!

Wondering what the plan is, for when the contractions just go on and on until they get so far along and WON'T stop? A Cesarean procedure, methinks.
