Urgent prayer request

I'm now officially in pre-term labor...at only 25 weeks 4 days. That's about three months early, and still in the age zone where baby outcomes can be pretty bad. I've been put on magnesium to try and slow/stop the contractions and got a dose of steroids to try and help the baby's lungs develop. We are of course praying that the magnesium will do the trick, stop this labor, and allow us to avoid delivering anytime soon...will you join us?

Matt's mom leaves tomorrow evening and my mom arrives a few hours later...praise the Lord for both of them. The girls have all done beautifully through this craziness, but we'd covet your prayers for their little hearts and minds as well.

I'm told this mag is bound to make me feel terrible here in a few minutes, so I'm going to go, but would appreciate your prayers. Feel free to call email or text...all the prayers and encouragement are a blessing. Finally, matt, as always is by my side and work is taking a backseat...pray for strength, encouragement and favor for him. He's a rock.
Much love,
Sara
