This is Jerri's sister Jenny (otherwise known as Runningamuck). Jerri asked that I pass along information to you all.
She went to her regular ob appointment today and was letting him know how cruddy she's been feeling. Well, her urine test came back that she was severely dehydrated. (We suspect that's due to the meds and all the side-effects) So she's off to the hospital to be plugged in to some IV fluid. Hopefully once she's nice and hydrated the contractions will stay away, she'll need the meds less and she'll feel much better.
In the meantime, I know she would appreciate your prayers for continued health of the baby and that her poor, dried up veins would be easily accessible for the IV. She's got a bit of "record" of being difficult in that area. Not only would that delay her getting fluids but being a human pin-cushion isn't all that comfortable either.
At this point she has no idea if they'll keep her overnight but I'll be sure to pass along information as I get it.
Thanks for your prayers.
