Dr visit!

We went to the Dr. Preston has gained 6 oz and weighs 1 lb 4 1/2 oz, Mason gained 3 oz and weighs 12 oz, Lily gained 7 oz and weighs 1 lb 4 oz. There is still concern for Mason. He is still so small. We discussed moving our goal up to 26 weeks but realize that would put Preston and Lily at risk to save Mason. We decided to keep our goal at 28 weeks. We know it's still early but all 3 babies will have a better chance of surviving if they all make it to 28 weeks. They may say at 28 weeks I am doing good enough to go to 29, 30 or further. The earliest we would deliver is 28 weeks. We will just have to see. The main thing is that everyone keeps praying for Mason to fight and grow. I go back in 2 weeks. Dr said for now just rest, don't go to the grocery store, do any housework, or heavy lifting. Just rest!
I am kind of scared but we have come this far and I know it's all in god's hands. Mason just needs to hang in there at least 5 more weeks.
Just resting! Staci

Read some of those books you always promised to, but, never had time. When all THREE of our babies arrive you won't have time to even go to the bathroom!
Love you, Aaron, Ashley,Preston,Mason and last but not least our sweet little Lilly.

Rest rest rest! When those three are delivered and grow up, Mason is really going to have a reason to pick on his brother and sister!
