Big specific prayer for Carrie

Carrie just called me this morning to say that during the night, the medication that is supposed to stop the contractions (magnesium sulfate) caused pulmonary edema (water on the lungs).  They had raised the dose  after I left last night.  Apparently, this is a common side-effect of the drug, so not wholly unexpected.  She woke up quite short of breath and the nurses had to take her off everything.  Thank God, the contractions are staying relatively small and not too close together right now.  She asks specifically that we all pray that "the Lord Himself will stop these contractions."  We know He is more than able and we have seen Him answer such specific requests before.  So please continue to "Ask, seek, and knock" for us in this way.  

The doctor said once the water is off of her lungs they will start her on a lower dose of magnesium sulfate if needed, since she seemed to be fine for a few days on the lower dose.  If the contractions continue there are some other options that we will look into.  

Thank you so much for your prayers as always.  We'll keep you all updated.
