Please pray...

I would like to introduce Robert Michael C ** . Robbie was born at 26 weeks and 2 days gestation. He has a long road ahead of him and he, his mommy, Trish,and daddy David need lots and lots of prayers. (Trish is a good friend of mommy's. When Trish was pregnant for the very first time, her and mommy had the same due date. Unfortunately Trish miscarried. I am here though and Trish is my 'special' mommy.)

Here's the shortened version of his story. Trish had been having really bad heartburn for the last couple days but no other real problems. She bought a BP cuff...just because and got some high blood pressures at home but just thought it was because it was the wrong size cuff. Another friend encouraged her to call her OB which she did on Thursday. They had her come in and her blood pressure was 164/114 and she was spilling protein. She earned herself immediate admittance to the hospital. They attempted to keep her pregnant for at least 48 hours in order for the steroids for lung maturity to maximize. She made it 45 hours before she got an awful headache, blurred vision, stomach pains and increased swelling. Delivery was imminent. She delivered Saturday May 31st at 11:22 am. Robbie weighs a whopping 1 pound 7 ounces. Mommy Trish and Robbie are doing well now. As Trish said today when mommy went to visit, it's been an uneventful 24 hours and that is exactly what they need. You can read more of Trish's story on her blog. I linked it above. Please pray for Robbie, Trish and David. They will have a lot of ups and downs.

We love you guys!
