7 Days Ago….

Posted on: January 17, 2012

Seven days ago I took Melanie to the hospital innocently thinking we’d be home for lunch! How naive I was! She has held strong now for seven days and in the words of her aunt Monique, she’s keeping her legs crossed!

Melanie is willing herself to not birth this child till it’s good and ready! The doctors say the longer the better and if she can make it to week 36 then likely baby would go home with her without complications! That’s four more weeks people! She says she is going to make it happen and more power to her!

For all of you asking, Melanie is doing well, her spirits are being kept up by the phone calls from out-of-town cousins and aunts and uncles, and by the visits of her local cousins, aunts and family as well! Thank you all for that!

Baby is doing well and under no stress. The ultra-sounds look great and present no issues! Big sister Holly is also doing very well. She is adapting to her new routine and looks forward to her visits to Mommy at the doctors. That’s one long appointment that Mommy has been at. She’s being a very good girl with Nana and Pops and I’m sure will be a good girl for us just as soon as my cold is gone and I can care for her! I’m hoping for Thursday.

Again, thank you all for the prayers, please don’t stop now and for all of you who have made an effort to call, visit or send an e-card, thanks from the bottom of my heart. It makes me proud to see my family jump in action like this!

If you’d like to send an e-card, go to and then on the main page click on  patient/families/visitors , then go to family/friends and click, there you’ll see a link to do an e-card! It’s free and the card will be delivered the next day to Melanie.

So no news is good news and I am happy to say she’s made it a full week! Keep on praying that baby stays in!

Warmest regards,

Sweet Marie
