The weather

We don't get mad about the weather for two reasons. First, there's nothing we can do it, so there's no point to getting upset. And second, even if it is crappy out - like today - it will be sunny again soon. It's only a matter of time.

Our weather keeps changing. Yesterday, the question was, "Bed rest or no bed rest?" Earlier today, the question was, "Hospital bed rest for four days or hospital bed rest for one week?" Now, the question is, "Hospital bed rest for three weeks or for the duration?"

We're keeping our chins up over here at Lockhart Laboratories, but the prognosis is that at a minimum we're spending the holidays here at the hospital. Dana and the docs are doing everything that they can to stabilize her cervix (it is only a 1/2 inch long right now), and ward off contractions.

The good news is that the Deuce is a combined 9.4 lbs right now - whoa! But the problem is that the Deuce is growing faster than Dana's uterus can stretch. So we're in a bit of a pickle, but we'll get through it. Thanks for all the well-wishes from everyone - they mean a lot to us.
