As of yesterday, all indications were that both girls (well, all three really) are healthy. Both twins are over 5 pounds, both are showing signs of breathing movement, etc. Marcie is 34½ weeks right now, and 36 is considered full-term for twins-- which means that they were pretty close.
Marcie is feeling well, though a bit tired-- and both hungry and thirsty, since she hasn't had anything to eat or drink since midnight or so. She's a little anxious about the surgery, anesthesia, etc., but is otherwise bearing up.
Please join us in praying:
- For Marcie's preparation and endurance for surgery
- That the surgery would go smoothly, without pain or complication
- For the health of the twins and Marcie as they come out of delivery
- For wisdom about follow-up issues: whether the twins need intensive care, how long before they could come home, etc.
