Sunday Morning News: Day 1

Written from Melissa's perspective:
We were getting ready to go to church when the phone rang.  My mom picked it up and it was Amy.  She said she had gotten up to go to the bathroom and had made 3 puddles on the floor.  She then hung up and called her doctor.  Her doctor said to go to Medical Center of Lewisville right away.  Sean then drove 90 to nothing with his hazards on to the hospitalWe pulled up to the hospital at 9:00AM at the same time as Sean and Amy and I ran in to get a wheelchair.  I wheeled her up to the second floor and they had her change out of her clothes.  She then was hooked up to an IV, a catheter, a blood pressure cuff, and leg circulation cuffs.  She was given Magnesium to halt contractions and increase brain development for the babies.  They also gave her antibiotics by mouth and an IV to prevent infection.  Amy was also given a steroid shot to help increase the development of the babies' lungs.  Once she was all hooked up, they determined that Baby A's water broke.  We joked that Carter is going to be a soccer player since he kicked a hole in it. Amy was pretty sedated most of the day and in and out of sleep.  We all made many phone calls and said many prayers as we waited and visited for the next 12 hours.
