How is your sister doing emotionally?
As expected, I guess. My mom spent the night at the hospital with her last night because my BIL had to travel for work (don't get me started on that one...) and when I spoke to her this morning, she said that the neonatalogist (sp?) told my sister that if the baby needs to be delivered before they've completed the steroids, the baby has a 50/50 chance of even making it out of the delivery room. But when I spoke to my sister earlier in the day, I asked her under what circumstances they would want to deliver this early and she said if she starts losing a lot of blood, which at this point, I don't think she's been bleeding at all. They've also been giving her mag sulfate to try to stop the contractions.
