I hate to put this on a baby board since you will see why in a minute as it's such a sensitive topic. However, I'm struggling to deal with it myself being pregnant.

A friend of ours from church had her baby on October 1st. on Tuesday she started getting very fussy they thought it was just colic. They took her to the hospital on I think Tuesday night or Wednesday as she started to have seisures.

She has suffered multiple strokes and her seizures are continuing despite the medication. Her brain has suffered severe irreversable trama and the MRI does not look good. The news they received this morning was devastating and no parent should have to be in their position. She appears very comfortable and thankfully is sleeping through everything with no sedation or paralytics. She continues to be ventilated, receiving antibiotics, and being fed through a feeding tube with her mother's milk. They are still waiting on test results, but the next 24-48 hours will be the most critical.

Please keep the family in your prayers.

Haven't heard any updates but they consulted our parish priest. Doing a lot better than I would from what I heard.
