Epidemic on the East Coast
So, remember about a week or so ago when our friend Caitlin went into preterm labor in Washington DC and is now in limbo? Yeah, I think it must be an east coast thing. Celia went to South Carolina on Friday and guess what? BAM--preterm labor. The medicine the doctor gave hasn't stopped her little contractions yet, and she's slightly dilated. They're going to try a double dose of the medicine, and if that doesn't work, they'll put her on different kind that will mean she has to stay in the hospital full-time. She's only 33 weeks along, so the baby is getting some drugs to speed up lung development in case she decides to come freakishly early. The doctor is certain he can keep her in at least another 24 hours, but beyond that, we have no idea what is going to happen. It could be another day or another 3 weeks. Let's hope it's 3 weeks! Nathan is on his way to her side right now. It looks like she'll be having the baby in South Carolina for sure now, because she's definitely on bed rest.
