ANOTHER PRAYER REQUEST--FOR AN UNBORN BABY & MOM

It is amazing to me
that someone that I don't know
finds their way to my blog
through one means or another
and asks for prayer.

This came from
It is not for her!
Nope-it is for another person she visits.
I don't know this lady,
but she has asked for prayer for 
her niece, Kristen, and 
Kristen's unborn baby.
For anyone that has ever had 
a tenuous pregnancy-
one that is fraught with anxiety
and the fear of the unknown,
you will know exactly what 
Kristen is going through right now.
Not only does she have to worry about
her baby's life but also her own life.

I am just going to copy and paste
the words Kristen's Aunt wrote:

"Please pray for Kristen.  She is 26 weeks pregnant with a baby boy, and due to the improper handling of an IV, she developed a blood clot, which has traveled to her lung.  She is also suffering from tachycardia and has to give herself blood thinning medication shots for the remainder of her pregnancy.  She cannot give birth while taking the medicine she is currently on, as it would endanger her life.  Yet, they cannot switch her to the medicine she needs to be on before giving birth too early, as it can cross over into the placenta and kill the baby.  One of the things that concerns us most is that they have not been able to figure out an exact due date.  Timing is of the essence, as it is imperative that the switch in medications be made at the exact right moment.  We would SO appreciate your prayers  that God will spare both Kristen's and the baby's life and allow His power to be revealed in this situation, in spite of multiple medical missteps that have happened along the way.  I think often of Jehoshaphat's words, "Neither know we what to do, but our eyes are upon Thee."  Your prayers are appreciated more than we can say."

Please lift this young lady 
and her unborn child up in prayer.  
If you are not a pray-er, 
please send your good thoughts 
and personal blessings to her.

Thank you all so much. 
When I know the outcome
 I will do an update here.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Joining others in prayer.
Also, my nephew and his wife are expecting their first baby. My nephew was born premature, weighing only 3 pounds 7 ounces, his mother had a blood clot on her lung and was in critical condition for 3 weeks and at one point was not expected to make it. Not only did she make it, she had another baby (perfectly healthy). My nephew grew to be over 6 feet tall (I think he is 6 4") AND my sister in law, the one with the blood clot on her lungs? She is a champion tennis player and a picture of health!
Just thought I would put this on here!

Wanda said...

I will be adding this dear young woman and her baby to my prayer book list, and thank you for being a channel for prayers. Heaven knows we all need them. I have several friends right now that are facing insurmountable struggles in the flesh, but Greater is He that is IN US, than he that is in the world trying to defeat us. Pray, pray, pray. Thank you Diane for sharing this.

Dear Diana! Bless your dear heart for doing this for us! We are MOST grateful to you for spreading the word about my dear niece and all that she is going through. We know God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we can ask or think, and our trust is in Him. You are SO incredibly kind and have such a big heart! I just cannot thank you enough, and I trust God will bless you for all you do. I remember coming here once a while back when your husband needed prayer. I do trust things are better for him by now, and for you, too. Sending much love and gratitude to you today!

Praying for baby and mom. It sounds like a dangerous situation. I have been praying for my pastors family friend as she developed toxoplasmosis during her pregnancy and the baby had to be taken early by Cesarean and is now a premmie and only 2.5 pounds. Praying the mother and baby both survive as both in intensive care.
