Praying for Baby Brooke

I took care of a patient yesterday that asked me to post about her and ask for I am...
I'm not going to go in to all of her story because of HIPPA stuff but I will let you know a bit as she has asked. She knows that the outlook for her situation is full of risks, but she is also hopeful and attempting to stay positive.

My patient is 17 weeks pregnant and her bag of water has already broken. A full term pregnancy is 40 weeks so she isn't even half way through her pregnancy yet. Of course, if she were to deliver today...the baby would not survive. My patient is committed to doing what ever she needs to do to help her baby live...even if that means staying on bedrest for 20 weeks.

She is expecting a little girl, named Brooke. My patient, lovingly said, as she rubbed her baby bump, "I love her so much already". She just wants to stay pregnant long enough for her baby to be born alive. Long enough to see her breathe, long enough to watch her grow, long enough to see her smile, long enough to hold her and love on her, long enough to to have her live.

Please join me in praying for baby Brooke
