"It's a good thing you can't smell pictures!" -Sharee
***UPDATE: After a sonogram this evening, Sharee found out that her cervix is thinning, therefore she won't be going home. It's disappointing and comforting at the same time. Please pray that Baby Tristan will just keep "cooking" in there and that Sharee and Justin will have ultimate peace during this time!
Today, Q and I got to visit my sweet Baylor roommate in the hospital. Sharee has had quite the scare with her little mister...last week she found out some unfortunate news about her protein levels (read her blog for more details) and then, soon after, she started leaking some fluid. Considering that she wasn't even quite 31 weeks, the doctors saw that it was a good idea to go ahead and admit her and keep a really close eye on Baby Tristan. But, after four non-showered days in the hospital (hence the quote that she so generously gave...therefore making my perfect title), some steroid shots, and lots of fluids and bed rest, God decided that he wasn't ready for Tristan to meet this world quite yet. She is no longer leaking any fluids (she actually has more than what she came in with!!!) and she and Tristan are getting to go home. I have loved watching Sharee through all of this...so cheerful and positive...knowing that God has their little family in His hands! It has been so encouraging to get her phone calls and I thank God for answering prayer...and for answering it so quickly! But, while she continues to be on bed rest, I hope to have lots more fun times with her...reminiscing about our sweet 4 years as roomies...and am so thankful that we get to wait a little longer to meet sweet Tristan. ... So, please join me in prayer for The Forman Fam as Tristan continues to grow and form and as Sharee does everything to keep them both safe and healthy!
