Moving on Up

****For those who that have asked we are at Presby Dallas room 462****

Well we had our doctors appointment this morning to take a look at the now infamous cervix. The results were good, not great, but an improvement over Thursday. She went from .9 cm to 2.1 cm, the result was a minimum of one more week in the hospital. We could very well be here for the long haul, but there is still a possibility of going home for a week or two. Truth be told I like AJ being in the hospital so when I am gone I know she is getting taken care of. AJ has other thoughts on the subject, and as you could guess they differ from mine (who could blame her).

On the plus side we were upgraded to the "Hilton" as the locals call it. Much bigger room with a couch instead of two uncomfortable chairs for me to sit on. Still no Hi Def but I am working on it, two months of no hi def this could get ugly. In the mean time I figure I have a couple months to try and pull an inside job and start selling carpet to the hospital. My plan is to start with the housekeeping crew and work my way up, I'll keep you posted.

The babies did look great in the sono today. They all seem to be growing fine and are pretty much unaffected by all the drama on the outside. Cody and Logan were facing each other and AJ is convinced they were cuddling, I let her know they are boys and they are most likely wrestling. Trust me Cody was head butting Logan, not going in for the smooch. We will try to have some pictures up in the next week or so, I will even try to get some of AJ. I will have to be quick and take them in the few moments she is allowed out of bed, but I will prevail.

Thank you to everyone who has called or emailed with your support. And thanks to those who were able to stop in and say hi and bring goodies for the mom to be.

Hi there! I am a new mom to GBBB quads (Sept. 12th). I found your blog from Jenna King's blog and I am so excited for you. It's wonderful that your cervix has lengthened so much. The cervix was our battle and it landed me in the hospital for the long hall (well worth it). The hospital can be a bummer when you're there long term, but they are keeping track of everything on a daily basis and that can be comforting. Plus, the nurses and docs at my hospital were WONDERFUL and so caring. I'll be praying for you.

Hey Amy-Jo, have you been being creative? Have you been reading to the babies to keep you busy? Maybe a song or two? Making a christmas list? Tee Hee!! We are thinking of you all the time. Smooth sailing from here on out! I insist! Call anytime you need too! Love you! Aunt Connie

Hey Amy! I hope you are doing well! We are praying for you!

I discovered your blog and wanted to tell AJ to hang in there. Hospital bed rest is no fun (I did 31 days of it in March) but when it is over the memories fade fast. Hang in there.
