News on Melanie

Just wanted to update everyone. The babies heart beat looked fine today. She was kicking a lot and was kicking and pushing her umbilical cord the entire time they did a sonogram on her. Feisty little girl !
The Doctor is still concerned about the situation since this is such a high risk pregnancy and hopes to keep Mei-Ling where she is until her lungs are more developed. Even though she is already a good size, her lungs are not developed completely. In view of all that, the Doctor is keeping her in the hospital until the baby is born. We hope that is not more than a couple weeks.
Melanie is pretty discouraged. Casi is worried. I hate seeing these newly weds have so much on their plate at one time.

Your prayers have been such a blessing and I know God heard them all as the baby was so active today it was hard for them to keep the monitors on her.

Steven and Priscilla were not able to keep their appointment to find out if they are have a girl or a boy. They rescheduled for Thursday.

Debbie has spent the entire day with me at the hospital, that is a good friend !
I will keep you posted about about any changes.
Just keep praying !
