If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.
My heart aches this morning. Last night my older sister who is 15 weeks and 4 days along called me at midnight to let me know she was on her way to the emergency room. Apparently, she was sitting on the floor, felt a bubble and then a gush. She called her OB who encouraged her to go to the e/r. Hubby and I immediately got out of bed, got dressed and flew (literally) to join her at the hospital. As the ultrasound tech did her stuff, I had to avert my eyes because I saw no fluid around the baby. When I asked the tech what the amniotic fluid index was (she was quite surprise I knew this term) she said "there was none to measure". Sometimes I think I know too much. There my sister was asking me questions and in an effort to not make her panic I kept deflecting to "lets see what the dr. says". I did make sure that they did not *bs * her at all.
She has been given cervi.dil and will be delivering her baby sometime today. The dr. does not want her to do a d&c unless absolutely necessary. We all know how emotional and heart wrenching this process can be so please keep her and her partner in prayer. He is also not taking it so well. My heart breaks that she has to join this community and also that she has not yet even experienced the joy of feeling the baby move or even learned the gender yet.
Please, please lift them up in prayer.
Awaiting my expected end,
