I got the news last night that a dear friend had her long-awaited baby girl. Unfortunately, both mama and baby have been diagnosed with group b strep septicemia and pneumonia. At less than 36 hours old, the daughter is fighting for her life. She has been sedated and is on a ventilator to keep her blood oxygen levels up. Her mother is not even allowed to touch her as outside stimulation must be kept to a minimum.
Please be praying for this little girl, her mom and dad, and her 3-year-old brother.
The ventilator has been turned down slightly and blood gasses are improving. I don't know what that means except that those are positive signs. As she continues to improve, it looks to be 10-14 days before she would be released from the hospital, so there is still a long road ahead.
