Twins Trying to Make An Early Entrance

For those of you who don't know, Ryan and Christy (my son & his adorable wife) are expecting twins. Yesterday at the Doctor's office they were doing an ultrasound and found out the one of the babies was trying to make an early entrance. His/Her foot was sticking out into the birth canal! Fortunately the sack was still in tact but they immediately Life Flighted her to a regional center in Salt Lake City, UT.

Ryan called me and I drove up last night to be with her. Christy and the babies seem to be doing fine for now but Christy will have to stay flat in bed for the next month or so. I'm having flash backs because I was Life Flighted to this same hospital 29 years ago when I was pregnant with Nathan and had to stay flat in bed, in labor, for four months. Now I'm sitting here with the next generation of babies in our family who are having a hard time waiting. We seem to be an impatient group.

We are so lucky that in her new room we have internet access on my laptop. Needless to say we are taking things one day at a time. I'm not sure how long I will be here but we will do what we need to. Christy and I have so much fun and laugh over the silliest things and fortunately we have had some things to laugh over.

Please include Ryan, Christy and their family in your prayers.
