2nd trip to the triage

Hello bloggers and lurkers! This is Nick and this is my first post (Kami told me I had to do her blog justice, so be sure you tell her I did). While monitoring at home this morning, Kami had 14 contractions. As a precautionary step, they told her to come into the triage so they could look at a few things. After arriving, they decided to admit her to the hospital to run some additional tests. They did another FFN test and it came back NEGATIVE. They also did some blood work for preeclampsia and that looked fine as well. Her blood pressure has been high but it has gone down from what it was earlier today. They ordered an ultrasound for tonight to check the babies' fluids and heart rates, but at the time of me writing, they haven't showed up yet. They're going to do another ultrasound on Monday to do the babies' growth. Please pray that our boys and girl are developing as they should. They should be getting feed pretty good since Kami has her our own Southern cook with her in Scottsdale. It's such a blessing to us that GiGi is able to be with Kami on this journey!

In other news, the Lexus is sold. All the x's and o's still have to be signed but the buyer is actually the mom of a good friend of ours. Ms. Linda you will love it!

I want to say "thank you" to everyone who is following this blog. It is AWESOME to see the number people that care and I can tell you we feel your prayers! This is going to so awesome for us and I can't wait! I'll be heading out to AZ at the end of the month and will be able to work remotely from there (as much as possible). We continue to take things one day at a time and we're enjoying the ride!

P.S. How 'bout those Cardinals!
