UPDATE - Week 26 - Part 3

So we've been here at the hospital for a couple of hours now. Kristina's been seen by several nurses and several Dr's. The main Dr over seeing Kristina and Jaylie's care just stopped by and gave us a run down on what to expect. The Dr has advised, as of now, she is taking Kristina off of the lovenox and changing up her supplement regiment. The Dr has advised Kristina and Jaylie will be here until Jaylie is born whether that be a couple of days or hopefully several weeks from now. The Dr is enthusiastic that Jaylie has come this far and grown from the last time we were here (several weeks ago for a consultation), that Jaylie seems to be stable and that the tests completed so far have come back stating Kristina is still at high risk for “stuff” and Jaylie is still really small but both are stable. The Dr is hopeful all that will be needed over the next couple of days and/or weeks will be monitoring, basically, waiting for Kristina's body or Jaylie to show signs requiring medical intervention (delivery). So, what I understood the Dr to say is, we are here until it is time to deliver Jaylie whether that may be tomorrow or 15 weeks from now (Jaylie's due date).

At the moment, the room we are staying in is really nice. We are up on the 5th floor and have an awesome view of the Seattle area.

My sister and her mother in-law (our good friend Noreen) stopped by and brought us some dinner (thank you very much!). We all sat around and chatted all-the-while Kristina is hooked up to machines to monitor her heart rate and blood pressure. Her blood pressure machine was beeping at us every time a measurement was taken that exceeded xxx / +90 mark. Kristina was measuring around 150/90 ish while we chatted and ate, which was higher than we would like. After my sister and Noreen left, Kristina stopped talking and actually started to rest a bit, and amazingly her blood pressure dropped to 136/84... As you can see, Kristina needs to stop talking and just rest :)

Well, I think that's all for now. We will make sure to keep you posted on the up coming experiences as they come along.

As always, we appreciate all your support and prayers! Thank you so very much!

Nathan, Kristina & Jaylie
