We did not host a baby shower on Sunday because the wee girlie decided to arrive three weeks early! That's where the prayer request comes in. The sweet baby has had a few episodes of turning blue, and so she is in the NICU. The poor young mama, exhausted after giving birth Friday night, and probably not eating or drinking enough, nearly passed out in the NICU last night. She is fine, just needed some rest and care.
The thinking is currently that baby being a bit early is having a few struggles but nothing serious. This is good news, but so hard for the young new parents and their families. (baby girl is the first grandbaby on both sides of the family)
Added to all this stress is that the Mama's granddad died on Wednesday, and Friday night was his funeral, and with being in labor, the family had to divide up with some at the funeral several hours away, and some with the mama and baby.
So, I'm asking you all to say a prayer for this dear family. They are all exhausted and emotionally spent.
We will, of course, be celebrating the birth of this little one in a few weeks, and she'll be in attendance! I can't wait to celebrate her and her mama.
