Thanks to all my Fingertip family!!! You have no idea how much you all mean to me. Your right Alice it has been one stressor after another for years now. My mother told me not to get married on Halloween.
She is still having some contractions and they won't take her off the meds til she is contraction free for 24 hrs. They won't do another vaginal exam cause that aggravates the uterus more. Apparently she had been having contractions for awhile and she thought it was the baby sticking his butt out until they got painful. They will give her the other steroid shot tonight for his lungs. Everyday they can keep him in is another day to his advantage. We are no longer counting down the weeks but taking it one day at a time. She will be 33 wks Thurs.
As some of you know we have had GD for a big part of her life and the only people she has here is her uncle and us, her dad is in NC. Her boyfriend is being great and hasn't left her for any length of time and his parents live close to the hos. Yes, I have been mad at this DD again cause I would love to be with her but I would probably drive her crazy everytime she made a move. We will go tomorrow and I'm going to take her lots to do to keep her busy. If anything happens and they can't stop the contractions we will be ready to run. She is down for the count whether it is in the hos or at home. We shall make it through this too. They said he is around 4 lbs so that is great.
The poor little guy doesn't have a name cause his mother changes her mind everyday but she has promised to name him before he starts to school. We know his middle name is Michael. Grandpa has been calling him Tator Tot from the beginning.
I haven't grasped this whole great grandma thing so he is my grandson. They really are all our babies no matter who they belong to Denise.
I shudder at the thought of spending time in a NICU too Rich but thank God they have them.
Thanks for all your prayers once again. It will all be okay, his birthday will probably not be in April as planned and he may be a guest at his baby shower on the 14th.
luv and hugs
