God answers prayers (see, I told you!), and we have been "event free" for over 48 hours. Each time contractions have been close enough to start timing, a nurse has popped in with my regular medication and 15 minutes later, it's been smooth sailing. Over night, there were no contractions to speak of - and that hasn't happened in ten nights...hooray!
THANK YOU to those of you who have so faithfully been checking in. Tedd reads the comments you post over the phone to me, and we are both really touched by the amount of support we have received. Please keep those prayers coming...We believe they are working.
And now, a new prayer request - please pray for JP. Our little guy just recently recovered from a difficult series of ear infections, plus pneumonia. It has been fun (and a relief) to watch his energy return as he explores the world around him and enthusiastically meets developmental milestones. But...he popped a fever of 103 again this afternoon and is tugging a little on his ear. We're praying for healing overnight, but Tedd will take him to see a pediatrician if he is still feverish tomorrow.
I am so thankful that JP is in the excellent care of his very capable daddy.
God, there is so little I can do from here. Please watch out for my husband, Tedd, for JP, and for Tabitha, too.
