Prayer Request Susan, this is just a prayer request for this mother and father and their little baby girl. We as mama’s know what it is to give birth to a baby girl and I know how thankful I am for my daughter to be healthy. But this is a very sad story. Praying God sends a miracle to this young family. I can’t imagine the heart ache and fears that they have. We are all going through something, but my storms don’t compare to this.
I'm not one to ever swallow my pride and ask for help. I've also never been in such a tough and stressful place as I am right now. I never thought I'd ever get to be a mother but last November I found out I was pregnant at the age of 42. I couldn't have been more ecstatic and throughout the pregnancy I did everything right. At week 35 I started showing signs of pre-eclampsia but it went back and forth between whether it was or just gestational hypertension. On July 7th we went to the hospital, I was 37 weeks and 1 day and showing signs again of pre-eclampsia. This time the OB decided to admit me and induce labor. On July 9th @ 8:28am Chloe entered this world with no heart beat weighing 8lbs 12 ounces and 24 1/2 inches long. She was monitored the whole time and it's not totally sure when or what happened but the team of nurses and doctors began working on her immediately. They brought her back to us but there's major concern as to how much oxygen the brain may have lost. She was immediately transferred to Fl South's NICU to be placed on a cooling unit. The cooling unit was to slow the brain down and prevent any further damaging and allow what may be damaged to begin repairs. 72 hours later the cooling unit would begin warming up and bringing Chloe back to normal temperature. We are now on Chloe's time waiting for more signs that there isn't some total brain loss. 7 days after Chloe was born an MRI was done. The Neonatal doctor matched The MRI with the early EEG and they are saying she has severe brain damage. They say she may never be off a vent, crawl or walk and our family will have tough decisions to make in the very near future. We are praying and believing those tests are just one side of the coin and miracles are gonna happen. The road ahead will be long and tiresome..
