Prayers PLEASE...



I would like to first apologize to all those whose blogs I love and comment on daily. I have spent the last two days at the hospital.

My sister-in-law, Stacy, was rushed to the hospital Wednesday morning, where they had to do an emergency c-section.

She was having seizures, and had gone into full blown Eclampsia (sp?). As of Thursday evening, she is still in ICU in critical condition.

The baby, Abby Faith (I call her Lil Birdie, which I will post about later), was doing wonderful...yesterday. She is a beautiful, tiny thing at 5 lbs 6 ozs, and a head full of brown hair. The minute they brought her into the nursery, we all stood there, my husband, mother-in-law, her big sister Alyssa, and the new daddy, Jay. The tears were flowing with joy and relief, we were all so concerned about her, as Jay had lost his first son 12 days after he was born due to multiple health issues. She seemed to be healthy and the most beautiful thing!

My husband got home from the hospital after lunch today, and a few minutes later we received a call from Jay that Lil Birdie had taken a turn for the worse. I rushed out the door and went to the hospital. They ran multiple tests on her this afternoon. She hasn't had a bowel movement, or urinated since she was born. She can't keep any formula down now. She has started to have tremors and jerk...they are not sure if it's seizures yet.

As of an hour ago, the pediatrician still hadn't given them any of the test results. I would ask that any of my wonderful blogger friends that read this say a prayer for Lil Birdie and Stacy, her mom. It would be great if you could ask others to remember them in their prayers. I will post any updates when I get them.

Thank you all!

Terri

Consider it done, and if it helps any, my son went through a similar rough patch for his first couple weeks, and he came through it with flying colors-- you'd never know there was ever a problem. I have faith you'll have a similar story.
