At about 10:40pm our time (8:40pm EST), two beautiful little girls were born to our daughter Ruth and her husband Nate! I don’t know who cried more–the babies or all of us waiting! As the babies were born, Becky, accompanying the birth, called me on her cell phone and I put it on speaker phone so everyone could hear the babies’ first cries (great lungs!), Ruth’s laughter, and all the excitement going on in the delivery room!
Ruth is doing great! Rebecca Joy (2.60kg–5lbs, 12 oz) and Anna Grace (1.6kg–3lbs, 8oz) are beautiful and will be in the nursery for 3 hours for observation before being taken to Ruth’s room.
The blood tests showed Ruth’s platelet level to be high enough to just have the spinal block–another big answer to prayer!
Now we ask you to continue to pray for a quick recovery for Ruth, that her milk will come in quickly and that there will be no complications as the babies adjust to life outside the womb. We’re not going to let down our guard!
We’ll have some pictures later.
Your prayers make the difference!!
Jeff and Becky
