My Daughter Gave Birth to Quadruplets!

Praise the Lord! Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who greatly delights in his commandments! His offspring will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. Psalms 112:1-2

Transverse Girls/Prayer Support

The nurses put Sarah on a medicine for her stomach. Apparently, Baby C got tired of her sister having all the room in the Penthouse Suite, so she decided to join her. Both girls are transverse, or sideways, which is funny because Sarah was a transverse baby, too!

When the nurses attempt to monitor the heartbeats with a Dopler, shy Baby D immediately moves up into Sarah's lungs. Active Baby C is now mimicking her sister, so Sarah's pulse rate has been up. The nurses have all kinds of tricks to get the girls out of the lungs-standing, walking, changing positions, etc.

One of the local spas sends a couple of nail technicians to the hospital on Fridays to do free manicures and pedicures. I talked Sarah into the manicure. It is amazing how pretty nails can boost a girl's spirits! The nail tech was very encouraging. She is putting Sarah on two prayer chains at two Catholic churches in the area. We need all the prayer we can get right now.

The nail tech story really touched me. What a simple act of kindness, yet I'm SURE it really did lift Sarah's sprits. If we only we could all think of a little things like that to make others' days, every day! Please tell Sarah that we're praying ... And I'm excited to hear her story has reached two Catholic churches, too!!!

Thanks, Sarah! Yes, it is amazing how something so simple can make everything feel more "normal," whatever that is! We have so many churches praying from all denominations. We are blessed!
