Re: Please pray for DS "momma4of6"

oh my gosh I just stumbled apon this, and It just brought me to tears

What a sweet post.

Heres the latest update..Dont know much...

I went into the hospital monday after my water broke, They incouraged me to induce. I said NO WAY! They said that I was too early for them to try to stop anything (mainly because of the water breaking)...

With a leaking bag my body has a 10 percent chance to re-seal. However mine was a complete rupture they think based on the levels, and the amount that came out so my chances are basically none- if it is indeed a full rupture. My chance of infection (which worse case senerios can lead to losing my uterus, or death) is 40 percent. If the bag does reseal, then the baby still has a great chance of never fully maturing his lungs because of the low fliud levels. So even if the baby makes it to a surival period, his lungs might be basically a solid mass rather then a working muscle


The regular ob says I should go into labor on my own with in a week, and are preparing me for the death of my baby, and they think it will happen so fast, it will happen at home...I have home birhed, so I am ok there, but obviously this is defferent, and I am soooo scared...of it all

What is sooo hard and sad for me, (well of of it, but) is that monday his heart rate was good, and his kick was strong.....

I am going to the periantologist and thats when I will get the really bad news...I am continuing to leak fliuds, and I am on self imposed bed rest (or at least as much as I can with all my little ones at home) We are still newer to this area so dont have friends, or family close by, so we are doing this on our own.

I am emotional exhausted, and physically drained (my body is working tripple time, with first trying to heal, then trying to rid the pregnancy, while still doing the normal pregnancy thing)

I am at the point now, that I am really looking pregnant, a beautiful round belly...Its so bittersweet, and just sad...but still happy to have every minute i can with him

I am keeping small updates on my link below, and I will let you all know, I am so blessed to have mommas I have never meet, caring so much for me..It touches me, beyond belief

Re: Please pray for DS "momma4of6"

Oh, mama.

This is EXACTLY what happened to my friend. I am going to post her story for you so you can read it. It is truly amazing.





Quote:
Recently, a friend asked about Ella's story and I wrote her the following message. I thought it was a great opportunity to share the amazing power of God with others and how He loves us enough to let us hurt and then realize His awesome plan and glory that needs to be spread to the ends of the earth! Here it is:

Ella has been in the hospital off and on since "before birth". I don't know if you know the entire story, but my water broke when I was 18 weeks pregnant and docs said she would die in a few short days and then I could deliver her. She kept on living (Praise God!), and we saw a specialist...he said to terminate the pregnancy because I could die from infection since everything was open down there and she wouldn't live if she was born anyways because her lungs would never have a chance to develop and even if she did live, her bones would be all bent and mangled because there was no space in my womb because there was no fluid.

Obviously we didn't abort, and 12 weeks later (after being on bedrest at home for 7 weeks and being hospitalized for 5 weeks) she was born and was given an APGAR score of ZERO! (Every baby is given a score from 1-10, 10 being the best, at birth based on whether or not the baby has a heart rate, breathing, awake, crying, responsive and well, Ella had NONE of these things) After being recesitated, Ella was in critical condition. She was 3 lbs and15" long. She was born with TINY lungs, a brain bleed, and a lot of other problems and had to stay in the hospital for 50 days, two weeks of which, she was on life-support. We couldn't even touch her for the first week of life. I finally got to hold her when she was 1 1/2 weeks old. While in the hospital, Ella recieved two blood trasfusions along with several echos on her heart and countless x-rays, ultra sounds, and other various procedures.

I had to give Ella 2 shots a day after she came home from the hospital because she had a clot in her heart that would have caused a stroke or congestive heart failure if it had not been treated. Also, endured thee MRI's, followed by three hip surgeries and then had to wear three different full-body casts for 3 months because her hip was dislocated. Before the casts, she wore a full-body harness and now wears a hip brace when she sleeps.

One of the biggest things was her eyes. Both retinas were detatched and she was rapidly going blind. Ella had one surgery here in Boise and two major eye surgeries in Portland. Now she sees with glasses!
Because of all these things, Ella was left with a very poor immune system, so she contracts illness very easily. At the beginning of this year, Ella came down with Salmanila and Pneumonia within six weeks of each other! We were in the ER almost every weekend for a month.

Recently, she got croup and that's why she was hospitalized last week. She couldn't breath and got it worse than most kids' just because her immune system is much weaker.

Now, after being called to the mission field in Peru, Jesus has healed Ella in many ways. The clot in Ella's heart is GONE! She can see with glasses! And Ella's hip has been stable and in place for over 5 months and she is growing and developing! This does not mean that Ella will never have anymore bumps in the road (just like last week's hospitalization), but it does mean that God will provide for all of our needs and use each situation for His glory and the sharing of His gospel so that others may live eternally!!!

It is wonderful to be albe to share Ella's story. She should not be here, but because of the grace of our Lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST, she is alive! Because of her life, others have accepted Christ as their personal saviors! Where would any of us be without Him? What a little miracle Ella is.

Re: Please pray for DS "momma4of6"

I was in a nearly identical situation in August of 2008. I was 22+ week pg with my fifth son, Frank. I had been bleeding for nearly a month when my water broke. The doctors told me that his birth was imminent. We hung on for four more days before my uterus decided it was time. During those four days, my water resealed and refilled. His muffled kicks became strong. His heart tones were impressive.

Frank entered this world at 1lb 3oz and lived for 30 blissful minutes. Minutes where time seemed to stand still yet rush by too fast. The cause of his prematurity was a placental abruption which led to PROM. If I hadn't been bleeding so much, there was a distinct possibility that we could have held on long enough.

We had an amazingly compassionate photographer from Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep that visited and photographed Frank in the wee hours of the morning. Those photographs have been tremendously helpful in our healing journey.

My advice is to fight for your baby. Fight with all you have. This time that is immediately in front of you is all you have. If there is any chance that your choices and actions can help, that time is now. Do not feel guilty for laying on bedrest for as long as it takes. Do not take no for an answer from your doctors. You will never regret doing everything you could for your baby regardless of the outcome.

Much love and healing to you and your baby.
