Prayers Needed - Updated 11/11

Not for me, but for my friend (and former student) Erie. She is due Feb. 19 and went into labor today. They are transferring her to a major hospital with a level 3 NICU, so I know she will be in good hands, but please say a prayer for her and her baby boy.

UPDATE: She had the baby today. She started hemorrhaging this afternoon and they did an emergency c-section to save them both. Both are stable right now. Baby boy Isaiah is 1 lb 11 oz. Please continue to pray for them both.

When they got to the good hospital (the one in our town stinks!) they said she is not in true labor but her cervix is dangerously thin. She is likely to be hospitalized until the baby is born, but they think they may be able to get her to full term.

Fortunately, she is young, with few responsibilities, and this is her first child. Hospitalization will be hard, especially since the hospital is an hour away, but it will be worth it if they can get him here healthy.

Oh lord I'm so sorry to read this but I'm sure they will have things under control. We have a level 3 NICU at the hospital I work at and they are the bomb with the little ones. I will keep her little one in my thoughts.

I talked to her again today. The doctors are telling her that the baby could be born any day with as thin as her cervix is. Fortunately, the hospital does have a level 3 NICU and is one of the best.

This is good news. And at least with it being her first bsby she won't have a ton of other responsiblities. But how scary! And I'm sure staying in a hospital for weeks on end will not be fun. Thank goodness for modern medicine though. Amazing what dr's can do these days. My prayers are with your friend and her precious bundle.
