prayer request

To all of our wonderful supporters, we ask that you join us in praying
that Baby A's sac will repair itself and that her fluids replenish.
We also pray that I won't get any infections that can effect all the
babies and cause me to go into preterm labor. We also ask that I will
be able to hold off from delivery until at least 24 weeks (when the
babies are first viable).

In the meantime, I will be in the hospital on strict bedrest, resting
and praying for the best. It is all in God's hands.

Thanks again for all your kind offers, thoughts and prayers.

    Hi Lauren and Josh,
    We are friends of Mike and Allison Pernecky and heard about your pregnancy and now this current situation. May this just be a "bump in the road" and may the babies all be healthy and safe! We will be praying for you, your husband and your four babies and checking in on your blog frequently!

    "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." - Proverbs 3:5

    Sounds like you are already doing this!

    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.
