Hey guys just need to give a update on Amy and Hope..
Please forgive me if this sounds a little mixed-up but here you go. The day started out Amy had her ultrasound and things looked as good as could be expected, so I went down to Moscow to take a call then when I was there she called and said I need to get back there she had started to bleed heavily and things had taken a turn for the worse. When I had gotten there she was going into shock from the blood loss. They got her stabilized and we started the wait and see , Hope still had a good heart beat the whole time. Things then got worse she was bleeding and starting to have contractions , at this point we had already have had to make a decision on whether we would or not resuscitate Hope .Based on the what she would have to go through and with the Lords leading we decided not to, and just be able to hold Her while she is here. So Amy went in and they brought me Hope a little while later, I held her with the understanding She would die in my arms. The doctors told us how it would happen and it could be slow. I was able to hold her for over 4 hours, Amy held her while in recovery also. We also had 7 other friends and family there and they were able to hold her. While that was going on I filled out my own daughters death certificate. Now let me tell you about my God. The OB doctor came in and talked to us and said that Hope should not look this good and she had felt she needed to talk to the NICU doctor and they would like to check her blood gases , we said OK they said not to get our hopes up that this was probably going to not be good news but they were at a loss to explain why she is still here. So while we waited are OB came in and was well very excited and said that her numbers looked perfect and that the NICU doctor would come and talk to us. When he came in he could not explain this, he asked us are we sure of her age did we get the dates wrong. The NICU doctor could not say anything but "It's a miracle ". He then laid out his plan for her saying it's still going to be a bumpy road but things could not look better. He has put her an antibiotics for a few days but she is not needing oxygen she is breathing on her own with just a little help, there is so much info to share about how good she is doing. The NICU nurse said it best" we have never seen anything like this", her numbers are good for a 28 week old not to say a 24 week. Well I just wanted to thank you all for your prayers they were heard and answered in a way I'm sure you or I could have never expected.
