Today hasn't been too bad of a day. It's quite an improvement from yesterday. Yesterday, the doctor that was doing the rounds was really negative with us, and told us that anything they do from here on out was just to preserve Babies B, C, and D, and that Baby A won't make it. I realize the risks and understand what all the "statistics" say, but I still have a good outlook on things. It's really hard to stay that positive on days like yesterday, but today is definitely better.
I've been sleeping much better the past couple of nights. Our new room is the furthest away from the entrance, so we don't hear a lot of noise from the hallways. Also, I am oral antibiotics now, so I don't need to be attached to that horrible IV machine any more. The nurses pretty much leave us alone from 11pm to 6:30am, so it's not too bad.
Josh strongly encouraged me to go for a ride in the wheelchair today even though I didn't want to. I was glad I did, because we sat out in the sun and ate lunch. We also found a great place to sit outside and watch the yachts come in from the bay. I think it will also make a good place for our wonderful dogsitters to come and bring the dogs to see me. I miss them sooo much! I am going to try and get out at least once a day to enjoy the nice weather. I felt so much better after I did.
Wednesday is our next sheduled ultrasound, so please keep us in your prayers. We are still hopeful for a miracle.
Love you all,
