Prayers for Audrey and Triplets
Thank you for your friendship and prayers through this journey of bringing triplets into the world. Yesterday we learned the timetable for delivery has been moved up. Originally scheduled at Texas Children’s Hospital (Houston) for the first week of July (reaching 33 weeks), Audrey will most likely deliver within the next seven days.
Audrey’s heath is excellent; however, Ryder (baby B) continues to measure small and some of the numbers the doctors are monitoring are not improving. Specifically, the umbilical cord dopplers continue to increase revealing blood-flow is becoming more constricted to the baby, which is the reason for his smaller size.
This is concerning because two of our boys share a placenta. Ryder’s elevated dopplers are now effecting Abel’s dopplers. So this is a short overview of our reality.
Audrey will be at the hospital today for additional steroid injections and she will also return Friday. She has been told to bring a bag each time and to be ready at a moment’s notice to deliver.
We are so blessed to be working with the exceptional medical providers at Texas Children’s Hospital. Audrey is pictured above with her maternal-fetal medicine physician, Dr. Fox.
I encourage you to follow us on twitter and facebook for more regular updates.

from where will my come?

who made heaven and earth. – Psalm 121
