A Good Day

Overall, today was a good day.  Nothing was determined about the status of the quads, but right now the only thing we can do is let nature take it's course.  God is in full control.  I am in good spirits, and as Josh noted, the visits from some friends and family today helped!  

I am looking forward to a good TV night - Grey's Anatomy and The Office, and then some more sleep.

A big thank you to Janis and Bill and The Consultis Team for sending me flowers today!


  1. Hey its good to see your smiling face! The kids enjoyed chatting with you today and are working on decorations for your walls :)

  2. I loved the Bible verse and aren't flowers the best! I will say one thing I did enjoy while pregnant, was I had an excuse to watch a ton of tv & finally see some shows people always talked about. Now I tivo everything and hope to see it!
    You are doing awesome and will make it way past the 24week mark! Hang in there. I promise you, a positive attitude & faith will take you far! (I know!)

  3. Hiya L! Sucks that you're stuck in the hospital for the foreseeable future.

    Of course if there's anything you need (like snacks!!) let us know and it shall appear. Do you have a handheld gaming system? (Nintendo/PSP?) Books? Do you crochet or knit?

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
