30 December- Yesterday would have been the first Monday in 8 weeks that Kel did not visit St. John's. She was pretty excited about the idea of a full week away before having to check in this coming Friday. The excitement faded last night when some abdominal pain and spotting warranted a trip to the WEU. Tests and an extended Q&A session cleared us of any immediate concern, but it was decided Kel would begin her stay in Labor and Delivery for continuous monitoring and steroid treatments which were supposed to begin Friday.
So here we are starting day two of Kel's extended stay in room 8 of St. John's L & D center. While its early, it has already been a very busy day. Kel has seen three doctors (resident, regular OBGYN, specialist) and we went for an ultrasound to do measurements. Caroline is now 1 lb 10 oz and seems to be growing right on track.
So far the news is good, but Kel was unable to mentally prepare for her move since it came 4 days early, and since we've been here we've heard many more warnings about the lungs. Needless to say, we need lots and lots of prayers.
