The ride continues...

Hey all,

Just wanted to drop you a quick update!

Hang on for the ride!!!

It's been a bit of a roller-coaster of a week here for us - from the initial rush into the hospital and onto bedrest to the wonderful outpouring of love and support from all our friends and family and their well-wishes.

All in all, we're doing well and so are the babies.

We've also had a couple of reminders as to the reasons why we're here in the hospital on bedrest and why the wonderful monitoring, attention, and experience of our great doctors, nurses, and technicians is necessary for our babies.

They are doing well and get checked by ultrasound every morning and are spend an hour out of every 8 on the fetal heart monitors.  A couple of days, they've shown some warning signs and needed further checking, but all issues have resolved themselves and we're back to "Waiting and Incubating".

As we've known all along, the longer they're able to stay and incubate, the better.  So we're taking great care of Melissa, making sure that she's staying relaxed, getting rest, and is well-fed!

We want to say thank you to all who have sent their well-wishes, goodies, and flowers, and most importantly have kept us in their thoughts and prayers!

Feel free to stay in touch by email or Facebook!

All our very best to you and your families,

Mike and Melissa


  1. There isn't a day, or hour for that matter, that I don't think about you guys. I keep lifting your family in prayer and know the end results will be worth this little hiccup. I can't wait until "i and y" make there big debut! I love snuggling and smooching me some babies! Let us know if you need any more munchies . . . babies love oreos . . . just sayin . . .

  2. Hey Melissa. I hope you're doing well and staying sane while you rest and wait for those precious little bundles of joy. My new mommy advice is to get as much rest as you possibly can while you're in the hospital. Those little ones will need a lot of your time and energy once they arrive. I'm praying for you and hoping that the babies are doing great! Please let me know if I can do anything for you. My cell is 573-864-6466.
