More Testing

Well we are home. We had more tests this past Thursday at Cincinnati Children's. Our little girl had a bit more fluid which was wonderful, she was moving around like never before. We also were able to see her bladder which was something we couldn't due to her not having alot of fluid. A not so good thing though our bigger baby her heart still has not shown an improvement. Although she has not worsened they want some change for the better. They know this will take time, but they like to see a slight improvement and we didn't. So we leave again this coming Thursday and head back to Cincinnati for more tests on Friday. Our prayer is that we see some improvement with our bigger girl. If no improvement is seen then we will be talking about going back in and doing surgery to see if they missed something. Our prayer is we don't have to do more surgery. There is also more risks the more you mess with the uterus and with the babies. I have also been put on strict bed rest with bathroom and doctors visits only. That is very hard for me, but I will do whatever we have to for these girls. We still have much to pray about. Thank you to all that have been praying we can feel it. Please continue to help us pray, as we still have a long uncertain road ahead. We are just praying God will continue to pave the way.

Wow, Carrie, the Lord has brought y'all through much in the past couple of weeks and it seems that it's not over yet. We just wanted y'all to know that we just found out what was going on last week and we are praying for you guys! My Dad (Tim Schelling) is the Pastor at Northern Kentucky Baptist Church (about 15 min from Cincy Childrens)and he and my mom tried to see you guys while you were there, but the hospital said that you weren't there! So, some wires were crossed somewhere! They added you and the babies to the prayer list at their church, so there are about 300 people in KY praying for you all! Next time you go to Cincy, let us know and we'll pass the info on to my parents... they would love to meet the people that they're praying for. Also, if you need anything while you're there, they said to just let them know. The church phone number is (859) 341-5968. My cell number is (859) 250-1505 and Joel's is (423) 523-5665. My email address is ksimkus@whowilltell.com. I'll keep tabs on your blog for updates. We love you guys and we're praying for you.

Just checking in to see the latest news about you and the girls. Still praying for them-and you. I was on strict bed rest for most of my pregnancy with the girls and it was so hard. But I had it easy compared to you-cause I didn't have any other children to worry about-and you do. I'll be praying for all of your family as they have to pitch in and help-especially your older girls who will bear the biggest load in helping.
