Last year on May 10th 2009 (Mothers day) Lucas James Thomas was born premature at 27 weeks along. He died June 8th 2009.
It seems to be happening all over again today.
My cousin has been in and out of the hospital for the past 2 1/2 weeks in preterm labor. The doctors have been able to stop it 3 times so far. They've been giving the baby steroirds for the past week, incase they can't stop it again. On Sunday Amber was admitted into the hospital with pnuemonia. Yesterday she was doing a little better then the day before. Until she started to cough and vomit again. Today they ran some tests and her white blood cell count is extremely high and her oxegyn level keeps on dropping dangerously low. The doctors are debating on taking Dylan James (the baby) Out tonight. This is a very stressful time for our family (as you can tell) Ambers brother Adam is due to have a baby with his wife in 4 days. My aunt is stuck between 2 places at once. *sigh* Prayers are needed please!
She's at 29 weeks along today.
