I have met a new friend in this wonderful, wacky world of cyberspace. We met on a website for women on bedrest and with high risk pregnancies. Since then she has been following my blog and we have been emailing daily. She has been a huge source of support and encouragement ever since we started our online communication, and now I would like to return the favor.
Her name is Amy. She is about 26 or 26 1/2 weeks pregnant and, like me, is on strict bedrest in a hospital; however she is experiencing quite a few more serious complications. At 21 weeks she found out that she had complete placenta previa and placenta accreta. One of the risks is that the placenta can grow into a percreta which means the placenta can grow through the uterine wall and attach to her organs such as her bladder or her kidney. She was just diagnosed with this a few days ago. She is being closely monitored as it can progress pretty rapidly. This is pretty rare, occurring 1 in 70,000 cases. As you can imagine this is a very scary and stressful time for her and her family.
I am writing all of this because she and her family are in need of our prayers. If all goes well she will go into a scheduled c-section surgery on April 30th once her baby has reached 34 weeks. After the baby is delivered she herself will undergo a more extensive surgery. Let's pray that she and the doctors can go ahead with the scheduled delivery without any further emergencies.
As she is a regular visitor on my blog, I thought we could use this site as a source of encouragement and support for her. Please go to the comment section and post a comment to let her know you will keep her and her family in your prayers.
Thank you, friends! Love to you all!
