3 Bumps

Please keep this woman (and baby) in your thoughts (update)

A freind of mine on facebook is facing some REALLY hard times right now. She struggled to conceive, but now has 3 gorgeous boys. #1 is 3ish, #2 was born with a cleft lip & palate, has gone through all the surgeries, and is 13 months, #3 is one month old today.

He's the one everyone is worried about. They've been in and out of the ER over the weekend. He wasn't able to keep ANYTHING down, so the ER thought it was thrush. Got meds, he did good for about a day and a half. He started spitting everything back up. Now, this morning he's been spitting up blood, had a siezure, and is so dehydrated his soft spots are caving in. And, one doc found a hard lump around his little tummy.

Poor mom is trying to deal with all of this on her own. Her husband got super grumpy this morning (middle of the night) when she tried to wake him up to tell him what's going on. She could really use all the support she can get, even if y'all don't know her.


UPDATE (11:30am Pacific/2:30 Central): Just got an update on this Mom and baby. Poor baby needs surgery. He'll be going in at 4:00pm Central time. There is something wrong with his tummy and Mom couldn't remember the technical term.

  • Me too amazinggrace.

    Forgot to mention until just now, but she's also going to school to get her ECE (early childhood education) degree. She's got SO much on her plate, and has been through SO much. She needs a break.

    Hear that cosmos??!?! Cut this woman a break already.
