First I want to start with thanking people for their prayers, love and support. We are so grateful and undeserving. We have been greatly blessed by the comments left and have recognized a number of the names which is fun.
The contractions have largely dissipated. We are grateful for the Lords gracious intervening. Melanie will be observed through tomorrow and then probably released, assuming no further labor. The more time that goes on the less of the medication is in her system.
We do not know when labor will return. She will be on bed rest to attempt to forestall it as long as possible. Please pray that the baby will have at least 6 more weeks, minimally, to develop. 34 is still preemie but nothing like 28.
Again thank you for your prayers. They were both needed and effective. Wed evening/night was extremely challenging as Melanieâ€™s body bore the brunt of this medication. A few of the comments left indicate some of you know the challenge these meds are. I was stretched way beyond my comfort zone as I sought to comfort my hurting wife. The Lord Jesus was a very real source of comfort both directly and through the passages we just happened to read (did you know how many miracles of healing there are around Matt 8 and 9?).
