Here We Go Again

It doesn't seem that long ago that Karina was in pre-term labor with Luke. Well, now she's been air-lifted to Rockford, where they are better equipped to handle preemies, since they detected contractions today at her "non-stress" test.
Our little twin granddaughters, Kate and Madison, aren't due until February 15th, so we are praying God will slow this pre-term labor enough to give them some time to develop more. Right now they are estimated to weigh 2# 14oz and 3# 9oz; very small indeed.
The latest report from the hospital is that things have stabilized; the medication is slowing the contractions, and they plan on keeping Karina there for a minimum of 2 weeks if things continue along these lines.
Our Lord is gracious and merciful, and we pray He will continue to preserve these little ones.

    Our God is mighty and He has these tiny babies on his mind. We will be praying for you ALL.

    God, please be with Karina as she enters into a time of rest so her babies can grow. We ask that you guide the minds and hands of all medical personnel that come in contact with her giving the kind words and loving actions that will ease her mind and help her be calm. I also ask that you guide the family members that are helping care for the boys during this trying time. I pray that they are transitioning well and being well cared for. I pray that you give everyone rest during this tiring time. We know that you are mighty and merciful and I just ask that you prove your might in the lives of this family. We will all certainly give you the glory!! We love you and we are so glad you hear these prayers being lifted up for Karina and the girls. Thank you for your hand in her pregnancy this far...please continue to hold them all in your hands til the appointed time of the joyous birth.

    We are praying too! Our twin's mom (my ex) had to be hospitalized the entire the last month of her pregnacy.
    Mike, the smallest got to be four pounds. Now he's the best golfer I know personally, with a 1/2 handicap.

    Your work flexibility is needed now for sure!
