Hospitalization...going ok so far

Family and Friends,

We wanted to let you all know that Jen's hospital stay has gone ok so far. Jen has been able to stay in her own clothes, avoid IV's, and get out of the room several times per day. That has been a big help in keeping her sanity, so we praise God for that.

But, the whole reason that we decided to voluntarily have her admitted was to monitor the boys, specifically our trouble makers, babies C and D, not because Jen was having any problems. The process of monitoring these two boys has proven to be an even more difficult task than we anticipated. We do know, due to a sonogram this afternoon that our boys are all doing ok so far, so that is awesome. But, because there is such a crowd in there, it is difficult to distinguish one baby from another.

Please pray that the Lord would give our doctors and nurses wisdom as they seek to determine the best way to monitor our boys for problems. And, as they work through this difficult problem, pray that God would give Jen and I peace, patience, and wisdom as we continue to leave their little lives in the palm of our Heavenly Father's hands.

Thank you again for all of your love and encouragement in the comments. They mean more than any of you know! (Even those of you we don't know personally, thank you for your prayers!!)

Brad, Jen, and the kickers

Jen & Brad,
I've been watching your site since your first note to the Indy MOMS group. You've been such a blessing to me, to see your faith in this huge undertaking! I have two year old BGB triplets, the best thing that has ever happened to me. To have one child is a miracle, to have three or four at once - it's too much to put into words! Dr. Sumners was also my doctor and I think the world of him and his staff. My prayers are with all six of you!
