No Funnies Tonight-Say A Prayer

If you believe in prayer..
If you can pray..
If you will pray..
Please pray.

My daughter has a friend she met in college.
That was 12 or 13 years ago.
She is the sweetest girl I know.
She is a nurse-practitioner..
But all she ever really wanted
was to get married..
and have a baby.
She met Mike.
They got married.
She got pregnant.

Her water broke and
Lacey went into premature labor.
She was 32 weeks along.
After a long day and 5 hours
of active labor..
they decided to do a C-Section.
BabyBoy was born weighing
around 5 pounds. (I forget the
exact amount). He is pretty
healthy for a premie..
but they can't get an IV
started on him.

Lacey started hemorrhaging.
They gave her 2 full units of blood.
She went into ICU.
She stabilized and they put in back
into a regular room.
Shortly after that she started
swelling up and she was not
able to expel any fluids.
She went back into ICU
and is not doing well.
They have given her 2 more
units of blood.
They think she may have
an infection in her uterus..
but nothing is certain
at this point.

Please, please say a prayer
for this sweet, sweet woman
and this baby.
And, while you are praying,
please pray for the
husband, and Daddy.
Poor Mike is not doing
well with all of this.
She is his life.

I feel like crying..
and I know that her family
feels helpless.
But I know that there is
One that watches over
His children.

God bless each of you
that takes a moment
to offer up a prayer.
I believe..
I believe that there is
Power In Prayer.
Thank you- I will
update you later.

I woke up this morning and the first post I came to on Tete's blog was yours. I guess the sexy man on her side bar caught my attention! Decided to scroll down and read your post. I was just outside looking at the stars-I too know that God has a plan for each of us-I pray that this girl will be healed quickly. Keep us posted of her progress.
