Spend the Night Party

What better way to lift my spirits than have my Claire Bear come spend the night with me and hang out all day. Claire spent all day with me in my room yesterday and slept on the couch. This morning we ate pancakes and birthday cake ice cream in my bed. We took a nap together, wrote a story together, played cards and did word searches. We had a great time. She helped me write verses for our scripture wall and it made me feel so peaceful inside.

Babies are doing well today. We had a little scare about 10:00 after I had been off the monitors for about 2 hours, the nurse couldn't find baby A's heart beat...she could have picked mine up though because it was beating 200 beats a minute it felt like. She had to bring the ultrasound machine in to find him. He is very low and therefore sometimes hard to pick up on the external monitors. Anyway, they both monitored well for 2 hours so they took me off to eat lunch and take a break for about an hour. I will hook back up at 2:00 and stay on until 4:00. We are already half way through ANOTHER day. Remember dear friends, every single day at this point is so important. I am demanding an ultrasound tomorrow morning, (a real ultrasound with my specialist, the high resolution one that can update us more on Baby A's status)and give us some insight as to why he seems to be showing a little stress at times. More than likely the cords are being compressed at this point (very typical) and of course that is the major risk in losing them. So, we are praying all waking moments now. I will share some news hopefully tomorrow from the ultrasound.

Keep praying! Thank you all who sent me verses for my scripture wall. I will post a picture of it as soon as my husband (who is working overtime being mommy and daddy right now)brings me my transfer cord.

I got your blog address from Maggie Dunaway. I have been very inspired by your blog. I hope things continue to go well. I am praying for you and your family.
I have a son Rob in 5th and a girl Clara in 2nd and one starting kindergarten next year. Please know that people that you don't even know are praying for you and your babies.

In case you don't have this on the wall already:

Lamentations 3:22-23
"Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed for His compassions never fail. They are new EVERY morning. Great is YOUR faithfulness."

Love, Laura Wolfe

Dana, I've been missing my 6 o'clock updates. I hope you're getting more rest now. Please let me know how I can make your stay more comfortable. Love you!
