An Update...

Have you ever been in a dark cave, so dark that you can't even see your hand? Have you ever gone skydiving with two popsicles in your left hand? Perhaps you've been bungie jumping with those same popsicles, this time in the right hand?

While these are all valid and worthy questions, we have one of our own. What is the plan?

Well, that's been our question since we came to the hospital. The doctor came in very late last night and told us his thoughts. Here they are:

-Did I turn off the iron? (Sorry, couldn't resist)
-It seems like the medication is working in slowing down the early contractions. There's no signs of Rachel going into "real labor" yet, so I think we're going to check tomorrow morning (this Monday morning) one more time and see if that's the case.


So, the doctor just came in and checked. This is the real plan:

Rachel gets medication to keep those contractions down. This should last for about a week and a half, which is when she will be 36 weeks. We are going to see our real doctor this Friday and see if he has any modifications to the plan. As for the time that the baby comes...that's still the question.

Thank you for your prayers!

P.S. Thank you so much to those of you who came and visited! We enjoyed the company with Grandma and Grandpa Jamison, Uncle John & Aunt Jen & family, and Uncle Matt & Aunt Chiaki & family, and Grandma Crookston.
