Praying Mamas - I need you. Update #150 :(


Recommended Posts

My nephews were born yesterday morning.  My sister was 22 weeks.  They are obviously facing mountains.  Survival rates aren't awesome. They made it through the night.


I will take all your prayers lifted from your mouths to God's ear this morning.

And ya'all, they are PRETTY.  They have their sister's nose.  So delicate, so tiny.  I admit being there during birth, etc. brought back some really hard memories of our Hannah's birth (@ 26 weeks in 2001)  and death, but they were so pink.  Baby A was SO angry at being born!  They are definitely true 22 weekers as they were in vitro fellas but I am hopeful.  

Specific prayers:

Brain imaging is coming back today.  Bleeds are expected.  Praying for no Level IVs.

Gut health ( this is what killed our Hannah)

Heart - holes are expected - that they would respond to medication and/or be repairable

Lungs - obviously



Overall prayers and strength for mama and daddy and all those are supporting them through this.  They have a TON of family who think they are awesome and are supportive... And not least, they have really great insurance for which we are very grateful.

Prayed! Thank you for posting again with more information as wel. At 22 weeks the survival rates are low, but far from non-existent, especially if they made it through the first day. There is certainly hope, and the hospital sounds like it's well-equipped to handle them. Update us when possible?
