Praying for Baby A

At my perinatologist appointment yesterday (at 24w5d), we found out that Baby A (one of the identicals) has a mild case of what is called Hydrops. Hydrops is a build up of fluid in the abdominal cavity of the baby and it can be life threatening to her, cause pressure on her chest and result in heart failure.

This is nothing we expected. Right now, we don't know what has caused it and for now, there is no cure for it. We just wait and see and pray. So I pray...

"Lord Jesus, please take this from our precious baby girl. Please let this fluid build up go away and allow her to be born healthy and strong and live a long life. Please let all of the girls be healthy and strong. We don't want anything to happen to any of them, in pregnancy or after birth. You are the ultimate Comforter and Healer! Heal our baby, Lord. Comfort us as we wait and see how she does. We know you love her and in fact know her before she was ever conceived. You love her more than we love her, God. We know you care for her and keep her safe in your arms. Please give us peace and patience and let us not worry about this. Let us trust in you and lean on you, Wonderful Counselor. Please heal her and take care of her, God!"

Amen! A little bit of advice, stay off the internet Maria! It will only make your mind go nuts. Instead, remain in prayer and petitions for your little blessings. Have you asked the elders of your church to lay hands on you? Hang in there...you are doing great!!!

Hugs...Amy

This is Grandma Carlson, I agree with the laying on of hands by the elders or getting annointed with oil by the elders or God's protection for all five of you!
