Rachael is doing fine today.
Now that Jimmie is considered viable they are monitoring his movement and his heart rate for 30 minutes twice a day. The nurse said he looks really good for a 24 weeker. Nice accelerations that coincide with movement. That's so great to hear. They are going to do an ultrasound to measure his growth and estimate his weight on Tues. Feb. 10th. As long as he keeps looking good and Rachael stays stable he'll get to keep developing and growing inside of momma! Go Jimmie! What a fighter he is-- just like his mommy and his daddy! (-:
A specific prayer request - Rachael and Justin are both having trouble sleeping at night. The nights just tend to be really unsettled for them. This is especially hard for Justin because every 3rd night he's at the fire station and gets calls in the middle of the night and frequently does not sleep much at all. Rachael feels a big part of it is just being away from home. Lord bring them rest!
As always- thank you for your care and your prayers!
