Everything is progressing exceptionally well. Our fetal surgery team has gone to Austin for a conference, but Millie is on track for discharge on Sunday. Her pain is sill omnipresent, but every day it gets a little better. She'll be sent to her brother's house tomorrow where she'll be on strict bed rest. She returns for a followup appointment on Friday. Her folks will head home Sunday night, then Davey and I will fly out Monday morning. Millie will leave the hospital with prescriptions for pain medication and most importantly the anti-contraction meds. Everything now hinges on keeping Maggie safe in the womb.
Hopefully Millie will be cleared to fly home sometime after her followup appointment. I'll return here to bring her home at that time (making sure the house is cleaned before her arrival). I know she'll feel stir crazy being on bed rest for so long, but I'm certain that she'll be up to the task. We couldn't have scripted a better scenario to this point. All of our doctors are amazed by Millie's and Maggie's miraculous progress. Many of them understand, as we do, that there is more at work in our lives than simply chance and the response of the body to medicine and therapy. We continue to express our thanks in prayers to a loving Heavenly Father. We have been sustained and witness to miracles brought about by the faith and prayers of so many. We certainly feel blessed.
