Keep Praying

Well our little Olivia has been home since last Tuesday. We are patiently waiting for our little Beatrice to come home as well. She was right behind Olivia and then she had some bowel issues come up and they had to pull her from feeds and do some tests. She now seems better, but she is having a hard time holding her temperature while in an open crib. We have tried twice, she went in an open crib Friday day and then by the evening went back into the isolette. They then tried again and she had to be put back in the isolette at 1am Sunday morning. So we have let her stay in the isolette all day Sunday and yesterday. Our prayer is that sometime today they will try again to see if she can hold her temp. She is now 4lbs and we pray that since she is eating much better and weighs more that she will hold it on her own now. Please help us pray as this is the only thing keeping her from coming home. Olivia is doing wonderful, and we love having her home, we just still don't feel complete without Beatrice here. Last Tuesday was the best and worst day as I was uncertain when Beatrice was coming home, and to leave her was beyond heartbreaking. I think we all cried half way home because it was bittersweet knowing we had Olivia but leaving Beatrice. God showed me though, it is all in his timing.

UPDATE: They have Beatrice in an open crib as of 10:30am this morning, she has to keep her temp holding for 24 hours and pass her carseat test!!! Please pray!!

Yeah! So happy for you guys! I was wondering what the news was because I figured you would have had at least one baby home by now. Hannah, Kate, and I read a Bible story every evening before bedtime and then we pray together. It's one of the sweetest parts of my day. You guys are often in our prayers. We'll make sure to pray tonight for Beatrice to make her way home really soon. How many weeks are they now?

I can see how you must be torn. Praying that your whole family will be united soon!
