My wife has been in the hospital for a month!

I have been so incredibly busy lately that I haven’t sent any updates on Alicia’s condition (I often work until 3:30 AM, but that should soon end when Alicia gets home). She’s been in the hospital on bed rest for almost a month now, and I’ve been home with our 4 boys, while trying to maintain my new business. Tomorrow they will test the baby’s lungs to see if they have developed yet. So if his lungs are developed Alicia might come home the next day, which means she’ll end up having the baby on Tuesday or Wednesday. Today she is 34 weeks along. Technically, they want her to wait 2 more weeks. A few days ago, they did an ultrasound and found that the baby is 8 lbs, which is heavier than any of our other babies. Alicia is HUGE! If she went full term, she'd end up with a 14 pounder!

So that’s the status of Alicia. I’ve been working at home this whole time and the ward has been very good to help us out. We’ve had lots of stresses lately but even more blessings.
