    My wife has been in the hospital since last Tuesday, knowing something was wrong with the pregnancy. She had to be transferred to a difference hospital to see a specialist. After less than a day of observation, he knew she had to deliver.

    The baby was not due until May 30th.

    Mom went through an emergency C-section Saturday around 2pm. Baby was 4 lbs 14 oz, and 17 1/4 inches long, pretty big for a premie, but compared to Katy and me, she is still a premie and has to be treated as such. (we are both big people, me 6'7", she is 6'3")

    She was immediately put on a ventialtor to help her breathe, that was when the doctors noticed her stare blankly for about 15 seconds, a sign she is have a seizure. The immediately did a head ultrasound and found that she had been bleeding out into her head. We still don't know the extent of damage that could be done, there is a chance she'll spring right back from this and be fine. All the doctors are baffled at why this happened.

    She was monitored for brain activity to make sure she didn't seize again, and thankfully she has not. She underwent a catscan yesterday and found the bleed to be worse than expected.

    I've never been more scared and upset in my life.

    By nature, I'm a problem solver. When something comes up, I fix it.

    I can't fix this. The feeling of utter uselessness is tearing me apart.

    I ask that if you could, pray for her.

    Thanks.

    Wow. God bless you and your family.

    I'll pray for her. Just have hope and stay strong.

    Hope things get better and you can enjoy having a new child rather than fearing of the worst.

    Done.

    If it helps, and I hope it does...

    My middle son was born 6 1/2 weeks prematurely. He was 4 lbs 10 oz, 17 inches long. He had fluid on both kidneys and was expected a long, hard recovery. He snapped right out of it. I was so worried-the entire crown of his head was a soft spot for months.

    My point? I have no doubt your little girl will be just as resilient. God is with you all.

    Both my older brother and I were born prematurely, and from my parents stories, we're lucky to be here today. We know how frightening it can be.

    I will definitely pray for you and your family. Best of luck and I hope everything comes out well in the end. *crosses fingers*

    Good luck & God bless.

    You got my prayers, too, bro. Both of my daughters' births had a few hitches, but things turned out fine. Those of you going to Botcon will get to see my awesome kids...briefly.

    I will absolutely pray for your daughter. I have a 1 year old daughter, and I can't even imagine what you must be going through right now. Stay strong and God Bless!

    I hope everything goes well. My son was born 2 months premature and was 3lbs 14 oz. He's doing great at 3 1/2, just a little delayed which is normal for prematures kids. Hopefully yours will work itself out as well.

    I am and will continue to pray for your family. Stay strong and remember no matter how hard it is, all things take their path for a reason we may never understand. After my wifes miscarriage. well I still havent really gotten over it and dont know if I will. we were both torn in two. I do know it does get easier to keep going and know that Its God's will not ours. I hope all the best for you and please keep us posted. Either way things go I am here if you want to talk and pm me if you need a phone call of encouragement or just to vent. Well be here for you. TFW was here for my family and I will allways return the favor.
