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,


  1. praying for you...stay POSITIVE - thus far, you are doing an amazing job. i know how hard it is to lay in a hospital bed not knowing what the next day, the next hour will bring...

    praying for good news on wednesday!

  3. You amaze me girl! Just sent you an email.

  4. Glad you got out in the sunshine (I'm a little jealous you had sunshine to see today :) )
    We believe in miracles and pray that God does an amazing work in these little ones. I sent you email and will try to get that info to you. Love to you both and those little beans.

  5. Lauren, I can understand how you feel, some Dr's don't understand that you are also being cared for the by The Great Physician who does not work with stats, but works with miracles. The Dr's were like that when we had Sarah and God surprised them all. We love you and will keep praying.

  6. oh, I'm so sorry you had to hear such harsh words from that doctor! Keep trusting in the God of miracles, and know that He holds those four little babies safe in his heart & hands even now. Read through Psalm 139 and know he's talking about your babies!

    Still praying fervently for all of you.

  7. Staying positive and optimistic can have such a huge impact on everything. Trust your instincts and hold tight to your faith. I know all too well what an impact a negative doctor can have. Hang in there and good luck on Wednesday. You continue to be n our thoughts and prayers.

    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.
