Happy Thanksgiving

The Pate Family has so much to be thankful for today. I am 28 weeks and stuck in a hospital bed...PRAISE our MIGHTY GOD! I know there have been so many prayers lifted up for us over the last few months to make it to this glorious day. I just want to say thank you so much to all of our supportive family and friends who have prayed for our very special miracle babies.

Update time: We did speak with Dr. Gonzalez yesterday and he has ordered continuous monitoring of heart rates. What does that mean for me, I am totally bed ridden ( I am allowed to come off for bathroom and one shower a day). Is anyone laughing yet at the fact that I, Dana Pate, am confined to a bed!!!! I obviously am not sleeping at night, also started having contractions every two minutes last night and had a shot of something that made me pure crazy, my muscles are so sore from not moving around, my back begins to ache and cramp within an hour of being in the same position, I generally have to stay flat in order to keep the babies on the monitors....I can't even get up to get my own junk food off the top of my fridge. I have to call a nurse to come in here just for that feat! And guess what else...I AM SO THANKFUL FOR ALL OF IT! I will endure whatever discomforts I need to for these babies.

I am going to try and eat my breakfast now...I will share names of the babies on the next update.

As always, please keep praying for GROWING, SAFE babies. Thank you!

Happy Thanksgiving to you! I know it will not be easy staying on the monitors, but doctors know best. Hope you at least get some good food today!
