Down for the count... week 29

Jaime was admitted on Tuesday after strong contractions started in the morning. Her Doctor has her on medicine through an IV to control them. Each of the babies are individually being monitored and everyone is doing fine. He said he would decide Monday if she can go back home or if she is in for the duration.

Off the chart contraction...

Here's to many more.
We love you...

Mystery Solved

I found Emil's Baptismal certificate and now we know who his Godparents are:
Walter Wallen and Pauline Micken

How does the past get forgotten so easily?

Just in case...
Emil and Stefan's God parents are Mike (Emil's brother) and Nell Barycki
and Jaime's are Bob (my brother) and Diane Bardsley
mine are June (my Dad's sister) and Claude Kolb.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6

Baby update / 28 weeks and counting

Just a note to update Jaime's doctor's visit yesterday. Dr Helm said the babies are doing great and Jaime is actually doing better than the average Mom carrying triplets. She continues to be very tired and uncomfortable, but this is to be expected. The kids keep growing and struggle to get comfortable with no respect for their Mom's comfort. Jaime has had a couple close calls with contractions and had to go to the hospital but the doctor has her on a medication that has helped, the goal is to make it to 32 weeks before delivery. The time is going fast.

Every Sunday I check the secrets at . It's an amazing collection of postcards, all anonymous, and all revealing a secret. I first learned about the book and website from a segment on GMA. I was immediately struck by the poignancy of the idea. Folks send in an illustrated postcard with a secret written on it. I often think about a secret I might send. And then I think about who might (or worse, might not) read that secret. But that's as far as I ever get.
I envy those who tell their secret and I hope that it gives them freedom and peace. I'd like that for myself. As for me, maybe my secret isn't that much of a secret. Sometimes I think that it's only a wish that will remain unfulfilled. Maybe it's just a fear? And therefore all the more hard to bear. Then I start to wonder about my Mother's secrets and wish she had shared more with me.
I don't know the answer to these questions but you should check out the website. It's a powerful place.
