22 January- The last 24 hours have been a little nerve racking. Caroline's heartbeat has had a few big dips and Kel has begun having contractions again. The doctors don't seem too concerned with the dips at this point as they tend to spring right back up, but still something they are watching very closely. The contractions are still not regular so no worries there yet either. We found out today that the girl in the room next to Kel had her baby this morning. She had been in the hospital since Kel arrived and literally was in the same scenario. Her water broke at 17 weeks and she was just shy of 29 weeks gestation today when she delivered. Their baby boy is on a respirator but appears to be taking in more oxygen and doing better than they anticipated he would. It was so awesome to hear their news. We will be praying for their little boy's growth and development and ask that you do too. We want Caroline to stay put past 29 weeks but their story gives us confidence for the day she does arrive.
