Twins update

Marcie is scheduled for a C-Section today at 4pm! Caroline's fluid levels were still low this morning, so the doctor felt that the safest thing would be to move ahead.

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.

Wow! I was just praying for all three on my way to the bookstore this afternoon. Will continue to do so. Keep us updated!
