Steece Quads Update

Hi everyone! This is Marcy again. I know you are all dying for an update and Suzanne and her quads, so here it is:

Suzanne's good friend Lauren went to visit this morning. She reported back that the babies are all the same as last night, no significant changes (praise God!).
Suzanne has severe anemia, but keeps a high spirit! She did get to go down late last night to see the babies, but was feeling very sick. She got a quick glimpse of her children and returned to her room to rest. Please pray for Suzanne to regain her strength.

As for the pictures of the babies, I am still waiting. I don't want to be pushy for the pics since Suzanne is not feeling well. Check back in a day or so to see if they are posted. I'm just as anxious as the rest of you!

I'll try to post another update tonight or tomorrow morning.

Keep praying and thinking of the Steece family. Thank you so much for your comments. I will print them out and take them to her tomorrow--your uplifting messages will bring a smile to her beautiful face!

THANKS again Marcy for the update. Please give Suzanne our love and the prayers will continue. She is such a strong person I am sure she will kick the anemia quickly and be up and moving again.

I don't think anyone will have a problem checking back on the page since I for one am refreshing several times a day looking for news.

We have friends, family, forever family and even acquaintances praying for the quads and family.

Please send any updates and give them all our love.

Thanks,
Mel

Hang in there Suz! You have done a great job and you will be back to feeling "normal" (whatever that is, right?!) again soon. We are praying for you and your sweet family....eventhough we don't know each other!

So glad to get a morning update! Thanks Marcy! Please give Suzanne my best wishes and prayers. Hopefully the DR. will get her feeling stronger quickly. I think I can speak for a lot of people when I say it is not a burden to check back often for updates! So many people are praying for the Steece family, and we all care very much about their health.
Thanks again!

Bethany said...

That is awesome news that the babies have stayed the same.. now I will start praying for them to start progressing! Lets see what happens in the next few days..
I will keep praying that Suz gets strong enough to spend some time with the babies..
It is so hard when you have just had major surgery... keep your head up suz! They know you love them!

Thanks for the update Marcy!! We really appreciate you keeping all of us in blogworld updated!!! Please let Joe and Suz know that we are praying for them and the babies. Hopefully Suz will start feeling better soon - I know she wants to be in the NICU spending as much time as possible with her little ones, but it probably takes every ounce of her strength to get out of bed and go see them -- especially since she has been bedridden for so long. She needs to take care of herself, but I know that her "mommy" maternal instincts are kicking in and it is only normal for her to want to be with her babies.
Please keep us posted as you get some more information!!!

Thanks for the update. I continue to keep you in my thoughts. I'm glad the babies stayed the same, in the rollercoaster that is the NICU life, that is good! Suz, take care of yourself. It's hard not to be in the NICU right now, but when your stregth is back, you'll be able to be there.

Amazing women such as Suzanne will once again conquer this with a smile on her face. I wish all of us in this world were lucky enough to know the Steece family. Since we are not all lucky enough, smiles, positive thoughts, and prayers will have to suffice. STAY STRONG and enjoy your teeny babies, as they will be throwing birthday cake all over the house by this time next year.

Mary Katherine said...

PRAISE for the babies continuing to 'hold their own'. bless sweet suz for carrying them this long! i have had a c-section and know how not fun it is... i can't imagine how much harder it is on her body that has been thrown so out of whack in the past thirty weeks!
keep it up suz! soon, you will be feeling better and they won't be able to keep you out of the NICU!!!! hugs and kisses to you and your family from MISSISSIPPI!!!!

You don't know me but I've been following your blog for a couple months now. I have been praying for you especially these past few weeks, and especially yesterday and today. Can't wait to see the pictures of your babies. I know they are going to be gorgeous. Hang in there. There is great power in prayer and from the looks of your comments you have many praying for you!

Thank you for the update!! We will keep praying. I am sure she is dying to spend time with her babies but they need her strong. She will be back to her strong self in no time. There are so many people praying for her and her babies!!!

Please give her all our love from the blog world!! I know we are all thinking and praying for her and the babies!!! I'm happy to hear there is no change for the babies, but I pray that she will start feeling well again so that she can go see her babies and nurse them to great health!! :-)

All of us at the Sylvan Springs Church of Christ who have followed the blog could not wait to see about the babies. We are continuing to pray that the NICU roller coaster is a straight arrow ride. We have a new baby at church that weighed 2-14, and she did not have one single set-back. Hopefully these babies will do the same.

Granna said...

The last post is from Sylvan Springs, Alabama!

Praise the Lord that the babies are continuing to be the same! Great news!!!

Hang in there Suz. We're praying for ya girl! I know how anxious you must be to get your hands on those angels. Take care of yourself Mama! Hope that you continue to get stronger every day and those babies, too! :)

And Daddy Joe, you are an absolute pillar of strength for your family. May God bless you as you see your wife and babies to stronger health. We're praying for you, too! :)

My wife, Teale, is home resting from her c-section 2 weeks ago. We know first hand the roller coaster ride that NICU can be, but you are in great hands and have MANY prayers going up on behalf of all 6 of you. You don't know us but we wanted you to know that someone in Gardendale, AL is lifting prayers on your behalf. We are members at the Adamsville Church of Christ. Feel free to visit my wife's blog when you are up and at em again. tealechadandbaby.blogspot.com.
