In your thoughts and prayers. His wife is in the hospital with a few complications with the baby.
When he gets a chance he will update us.
 
Thanks for the info.

My thoughts and prayers are with C-pher and his Family!!

Truly hope everything works out well for them.
 
I will say a prayer for him and his family. If you talk to him please let him know.
 
Thanks guys. I know he'll appreciate it. It has really been a rough time for all. I am crossing my fingers and hoping it is nothing serious.
 
All my thoughts and prayers go out to C-pher and his wife. Please keep us updated if he can't, Sue. He's one of our own, ya know?
 
Thank you guys, everyone of you. We really appreciate it.



Well, we just got home. They let her go, but they gave her some steroids to help get the baby's lungs developed in case they have to take the baby early.

They want her to get to 28 weeks. So she's not allowed to do anything for the next two weeks.

She saw a little bleeding, so they sent her to the hospital yesterday about noon. They've been watching her and the baby. The baby is doing well, and there's no fetal stress. She stopped showing signs of blood all day today. So they said that we can go home. If there's any more signs, then we're in the hospital until the baby is born.

They are going to make an appointment with a specialist at Mass General in Waltham next week sometime. We'll find out tomorrow. But they want to do some high level tests to see what's up with the placenta. They are worried that it might be embedded in the uterine muscle. If that's the case, this is going to be our last baby as she'll have to have a hysterectomy. But that's a worst case scenario.

If we can make it to 30 something weeks, then they will do an embrosystisis (sp?) to see if the lungs are developed. Just in case the baby does show up early.

We're hoping that we can make it to Jan 25th. But we'll see. It's been really hard on her, because even if, this might have to be our last baby. And she's just been worried now if they have to take the baby.

But, we're going to see a high risk preggo doctor, so we'll know more after that...but I'm thinking for the best. And she's worried...which I tell her isn't going to help because she can't control what happens other than taking it easy.

I've been through a lot of situtions... there are things that are easier said than done. But you are right, worrying woulnt really help her much. I am not a preacher, but let the ONE above handle it. You, staying beside her really means a lot.

We will keep on praying with you.
 
C-pher tell her not to worry. Coming from one who spent the last 3 months of my pregnancy with Alan on bedrest. I know it will drive her crazy, but just be understanding and supportive and you know how to get ahold of me if you need anything.
 
C-pher sorry to hear that things aren't going smoothly. I'll keep my fingers crossed that everything comes out well for you, your wife and
C-pher jr. If your wife is stuck on bedrest make sure you get her a laptop so that we can all send her e-mail to keep her entertained!
 
C-pher hun - it may have just been the stress of her brother shipping out that caused it. All fingers and toes are crossed, and I'm SURE the baby will be fine.

As an FYI - our nephew was 3 months premature. His head was the size of a tennis ball. He was only 1.5 pounds when he was born, and boy was he determined to make an appearance! He turned out to be fine, but they kept him away from everyone who even thought they might have the sniffles just to be on the safe side for the first year of his life. Well son, you should see that boy now - he's 8 years old and you would NEVER know he had been a premie. He's a Sherman tank! So, even if baby comes earlier than norm, that doesn't always mean it's going to be bad.

Just hang in there sweetie, and send your lovely bride our love.
 
Thanks Lynne...and the good thing, the wee one is already 2 pounds. So that's good...

And Nicolle can attest to that also. She was a premie. So, we're sure that the baby will be OK.

And I am Mrs WW. I've been keeping the mood as best as I can. Trying to keep her as happy and comfy as I can.

The hard part is that if she makes it to 28 weeks, she might be able to go back to work. But that's two weeks that she's not making any money...so things are going to be tight. And I'm sure that that's going to stress her out.

But I'm more sure that we're going to be fine than she is...but we will be.
 
Good luck, C-ph... tell Nicolle she's got a lot of people she's never even met praying for her.

And as for $$ being tight... I'm trying to save up for that P14 to help you out!. :D
