It's go time!

Amnio results are back, and Dr. S says there's only a 5% chance that Baby A will need ventilation once he's born. This is a good sign that the other babies' lungs are also developed enough to function properly outside of the womb. Therefore, in the interest of getting little Baby D out of there before she gets into any trouble, I will be going into surgery tomorrow morning at 8am. That's right, folks: We're having some Christmas Eve quads!

The timing certainly couldn't have worked out better, as my parents flew in yesterday to spend Christmas with me, and my brother and his girlfriend are flying in tonight. I am beyond thrilled that my whole family will be here for the big event! Please pray with us that the babies are born healthy and stable, and also that I come through this riskier-than-usual C-section with no complications so that we can all enjoy our precious time together before my family flies back to Texas at the end of the week. Tomorrow promises to be hectic, but we'll post names, weights, and all that good stuff as soon circumstances allow!

Oh, Suzy - I am so happy for you. And your whole family will be there. How perfect. How did you pull this off??? You are amazing. 33 weeks and 2 days tomorrow, right? Unreal. I will be thinking of you tomorrow and can't wait to hear names, weights, and of course see pictures of those sweet faces when you guys get around to it! What a journey you have been on already, and now the real fun is about to start!

Suzy,

I am so excited for you and Ted! What an amazing Christmas gift for you two! I will be praying for all of you tomorrow! Also, I am sitting here cracking up because my word verification is "unsmoush," like "Having the babies will unsmoush your tummy, and the babies"! OK, I know it's really spelled smoosh, but still, it made me chuckle.:)

Love and prayers,
Marla
