I am still confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord
Psalm 27: 13-14

Wed Feb 11

It must be training time for student nurses. Yesterday I had 2 come in the morning to do my vitals and listen to the boys, and this morning there was another one with one of the regular nurses. It totally reminds me of a Will and Grace episode where there is a student nurse taking blood from Grace and she is this super ditzy girl and Grace is terrified of needles...if you've seen the episode, you know the humor. I'm just grateful that I haven't come across a student like that! It's nice to be able to say Good Morning and mean the GOOD! It's so nice to have doctors and nurses come in and tell me I'm their "easiest patient". It's so nice to hear more positive tones these days!! Can't help but have it wear on to me! This morning my OB came in first and said "I ask the nurses how you are doing, and they always say you are fine...it's nice to hear! Another day off the calendar, another day that counts!" THEN my Dr. "D" (resident) came in later on and said "you know you are going to be here for a long time!" And all I could do is smile and say "that's the plan, right!" Just to have that lightness in his voice instead of him feeling so bad for always having to be the "dark" deliverer. I love how they tell me to "keep doing whatever you're doing". Yesterday I was reading a book my mom got me called One Minute Promises. And my OB had come in and saw what I was reading and just said "that's great!" I know that God is working here. I know that even though I don't understand the way things are playing out that He has every detail under control. I get frustrated as the leaking continues...worrying that our little guy is losing more fluid. Yet the ultra sound results show no additional loss...so it's time to remove this worry, and believe that God is everything this precious little one needs as he continues to grow. Tomorrow marks another miracle, another milestone...25 weeks with the boys. 2 weeks more of their growth. 2 weeks more of precious time that they need! 2 more weeks of God showing Himself to us through this. A verse came to mind today: Jeremiah 1:5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart..." God knows my boys, and He knows what their purposes are to be. I believe He has great things in store for them! I am mostly excited by the fact that tomorrow marks 25 weeks, but I'm also soooooo excited that our dear friends are coming up tomorrow night to bring REAL OUTSIDE FOOD!!!!!!! And to share time and a meal together!! I can hardly wait to see you guys, and to have a moment of "normal". I've been waiting for this all week! Thank you Lord for another day, and for continuing to provide protection from infection and no labor!! Ever morning I wake up I am thankful for a calm night, and at the end of each day I thank you for your protection! "Let the redeemed of the Lord SAY so, whom He has delivered from the hand of the adversary." Psalm 107:2
