Like this week wasn't filled with enough back news... a friend may lose her little one. :( She is just 20 weeks and has vasa previa . they have been trying to keep her steady until she can deliver, but they just took her down to the L&D floor and said there is a high chance they are going to lose him.

I am heartbroken for her. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

What she has:

Update 1

They almost lost the little boy last night, but he is a little Miracle. The drs are baffled that his heartbeat is still so strong. He is really a little trooper and so is his mama. THey could still use all the prayers that they possibly can get. She just *knew* they were going to lose them last night, but.... Little man is a trooper!!!

Update 2:

They said she was doing better tonight. About one contraction an hour. She is still on morphine for the pain, but they think that the cathedar they put in today has helped keep the contractions from coming.

Update 3, morning of Dec 6th:

Contractions are back. And they came back strong. Prayers please.


Final Update:

Colt went to heaven this morning at 10:17am. We are guessing they are prepping her for surgery right now :(

Best wishes. I hope she has a little fighter on her hands. A friend of mine gave birth at 23 weeks, her son is totally healthy almost 4 years later.
