Steph still in Hospital


At the moment things are going worse for Steph, but we still thank the Lord that the baby is doing great and the situation isn't yet threatening to either Steph or the baby. In the night last night she had worse bleeding so she is on complete bed rest in the hospital. From there there's really not much more news. The doctor just says we have to be patient and very careful. Every day counts right now because it's a time when the baby is really growing a lot.

Of course the turn for the worse was a disappointment. Yesterday the bleeding had stopped and the doctor seemed somewhat hopeful that he might release Stephanie today or tomorrow knowing that we have a place to stay within fifteen minutes of the hospital. I assume now that
she'll be in the hospital into the first of next week at least.

Thank you so much for your prayers. It seems like the trend is towards the worse, so we really appreciate knowing many people are praying for us and that God is in control.

So sorry! I completely understand! Does she lke to read? This is a great time to catch up on her reading! I also organized my recipes, did word search books, watched videos. journaled and went on-line. Maybe some of these ideas will help? Sleep is also very good! This time will be over before you know it! My motto was "This too shall pass!"
