In the Hospital

We’re here at Kennestone Hospital for a couple of days. Fortunately, the hospital has wireless! Adriene is having some minor contractions and the doctors want to verify that she is not going into pre-term labor. They given her some steroid shots to help develop the babies and also some medication to stop the contractions, but we’re in a bit of a wait-and-see phase right now. We are guessing they will send her home when the contractions stop, but she will likely be on bedrest for the rest of the pregnancy. We’re also coming to the realization that the babies may be here sooner than later! Yikes!

The important part is mom feels good and the babies are growing, so that’s all good news! Just give us a heads-up if you’d like to drop by. We’re not doing much right now here other than watching Scrubs and Office DVD’s and trying to guess what’s going to happen in the last Harry Potter book. We appreciate everyone’s prayers. We feel blessed. Our prayer is that God will let our girls “cook” for just a little longer!

    […] I’ve spent the last couple of days at the hospital visiting Adriene and driving back and forth… On the drive from home to the hospital, I drive around Kennesaw Mountain each time. I find something comforting about seeing the same landmark each and every day. When I moved out to our new home about five years ago one of the things I loved most about where we lived was that it was near the mountain. I often head over there to go running around the base of the mountain for an afternoon jog, or I climb to the top for some vigorous exercise and a nice view of Marietta and the Atlanta skyline. For the last couple of years I’ve dragged my camera up and down the mountain each season, getting pictures of springtime flowers, fall leaves, and city skylines when the leaves are gone in the winter.
