It's Go Time...FIVE BABIES TODAY!!!!!!!!!!

Here we go!! Casey's kidneys have started to fail as indicated by an extreme drop in her urine output over the last 24 hours. Though her labs all came back pretty good - platelets are way up - we can't wait any longer. We're scheduled for noon~ish today!

Please pray for Casey's continued health, the health of the babies, the hands and minds of the doctors and nurses, and for peace for all!!

God Bless,
Ethan

May God Bless all 8 of you today and each day following. Heartfelt prayers coming your way!

Carol said...

I don't believe in 'luck', as all things are controlled by our Heavenly Father, but I do want you both to know how much you're being prayed for and held up today. Your faithful attitudes and love for God has seen you through, and I'm so excited and happy for you all.

The nursery rhyme "Monday's Child" says that "Friday's Child is loving and giving"... and you'll have 5 times the love, 5 times the giving! What a blessing.

Love,
Carol Davis Sonnier

May God be with all of you today and the teams of hospital staff that will make this all possible. We pray Casey will continue to be strong and are truly amazed at well she handled all of this.
Enjoy today, it's the first day of your new, exciting life.
We're praying for your whole family!
Whitney & Zac Morton

Our prayers are with you all, Ethan and Casey! You know there is an entire network of believers, friends, family, and people you have never even met who are sending prayers up to God for you right now! Many blessings are coming your way. We can't wait to meet the babies!

Good luck to you ALL! Thank you for letting us strangers be a apart of your amazing journey thus far. We look forward to seeing all 50 toes when you are ready to show us. As a mother of 4 kids (not quads), I know how much of a blessing children are. I am so excited for you to be blessed again...5x over.

Eliot,
You are going to be a big sister today! Yippee! I'm sure you are super excited and looking forward to meeting your new family members. Your mommy has done a WONDERFUL job growing all these babies. Give her a big kiss today and tell her you love her. Then later, when she's super busy and tired, give her more kisses and hugs. She's gonna need them.

Congrats, Good Luck, be calm. Know that He is with you during your toughest times. Helping you or carrying you. But most important just BEING with you.

Looks like Friday the 13th is the luckiest day in your lives. I am so excited to see the babies and to see their big sister with them. My guess is that she will be gleaming with pride at how beautiful they are and how much she loves them.

Congratulations Ya'll.

We'll keep the prayers up here (Utah) for healing and getting home.

Meg said...

It's past noon, so I'd like to say CONGRATS and I hope that everything is going as well as possible with the babies! I'm so excited for you guys. Extra prayers and hugs from Utah <3

Carol said...

This is for Eliot:
Eliot, you're going to learn so much over the next few months! Being a big sister is so much fun, and it's also a big responsibility. And, sometimes when you're feeling a little sad because Mommy & Daddy are busy, remember you can always talk to Jesus!

Before you know it, you'll be able to teach your new babies to sing Jesus Loves Me and so many other things!

Congratulations on being a new Big Sister! It really is a lot of fun forever and ever!
