We came very close to delivery last night. Felisa and I went to the doctors and after taking her blood pressure he was thinking of delivering the twins last night or today, Friday. Her pressure was 180 over 100 the first time he checked.When he said he may have to deliver, our collective jaws hit the floor. We were incredibly surprised. But God must have intervened because with the last pressure check it went down to a more manageable 140/100...(deeep sigh of relief goes here) . Our next appt. is on Monday, he says we should come prepared to have the delivery done. So everyone please pray that all goes well over this weekend. It's now quite critical.

on pins and needles,

Having a tough time keeping Felisa in bed :( One friend said I should sit on her. Then he immediately reminded me that is what got us in this situation in the first place.

You got that right D!

Daily dose

Hi Everyone,
We had another doctors visit yesterday. Went pretty well. The doctor did a continuous monitor of the babies' hearts to see if there was any stress on them in the womb. All is well. So Felisa and the twins have bought themselves 3 more days until our next visit this Thursday. As before Felisa is barely waddling and Aliana is zooming around the house...bad combination. And by the way, I got a much needed job to pump additional income into our budget. I am designing for a marketing and publicity company here in Panama City. We are so greatful!!! Please, please continue praying for us.

we need it

likkle layta,

please remember you can put your replies and comments below if you like. It would be great if everyone could see the beautiful words of encouragement that we are getting. Don't be bashful, express yourself :)
