Shieldbug's News ....

"Henry (Harry) Richard was born at 4:11am on Thursday after an extremely speedy labour (mere minutes after my waters broke I think, although things got a bit confused). He's absolutely gorgeous! Unfortunately he won't feed from the breast, which is really getting me down. I was kept in hospital until yesterday while the midwives tried to sort it out, but they couldn't. It also means that I have to spend ages expressing milk for him, so get even less sleep than usual with a newborn. I know it's quite a small thing compared with some of the other prayer requests at the moment, but please pray that he starts to feed normally."

Congratulations!!! Covering you all in that "Duvet of Prayer" winksmile

Thanks everyone for the prayers.

The news about my friend's son seems to be good. He was put on an ECMO machine, fitted with an external pacemaker and kept in a hypothermic state while the doctors determined if there had been any damage to his brain. Since then they've determined that he's unlikely to have suffered any brain damage and have been able to take him off the ECMO machine and allow him to warm up naturally. He's much more comfortable now and is beginning to respond to his parents.

He's still sedated and on a respirator. The doctors are waiting until his heart can beat consistently and strongly enough on its own for them to do an MRI (as the pacemaker can't go in the MRI machine). They hope that this will help them to figure out what went wrong, and hopefully they'll be able to take him off the respirator. It's likely that he'll be fitted with an internal pacemaker/defibrillator before he can leave the hospital.

The doctors think its likely to be a congenital heart problem, and say that he's very lucky to be alive. He would almost certainly have died if they hadn't been in the car and near the hospital at the time (and if his parents hadn't reacted so quickly). There are 4 children in the family, and the other 3 are going to be checked out for congenital heart problems next week.

My friend and her husband seem to be coping amazingly. I'm truly inspired by how well they are able to communicate news to everyone and support their son effectively. In their position, I'd be a complete mess. My friend's sister is looking after the other 3 children and she's been getting a lot of support with food and help from friends, family and the wider community.

DutchOma Wed 03-Nov-10 10:05:50

Congratualtions Shieldbug.

Good to hear your news Interloper.

Here things are still a bit difficult. Although I think Bob is a bit better, he is not recovering as quickly as he thinks he should and we are stil waiting for the GP to prescribe the tablets the consultant wanted him to have on Thursday. hmm

CaptainDippy Wed 03-Nov-10 12:21:49

blush Sorry for the mistake PA; I had been whizzing through the old thread making notes so franictally, I missed a couple of thing blush Apologies. Praying so much that the tumour is benign. xxxxxx

Thank you for the update NameChanged. Wow, he sounds like one very lucky blessed little chap!! So pleased his parents reacted so quickly and that they were so near to the hospital. Just praying they can ascertain exactly what is wrong ASAP so they can start necessary treatment. Prayers that the other 3 children are unaffected. Do keep us updated as and when you can smile xx

Hope the pills help lovely Bob, DO - Tell him to slow down a bit!! winksmile xx

Having a "wobbly" day today. Feeling very lost, lovely, tired & unsure. I know God is holding me; but I need strength and direction right now. Prayers appreciated. smile

madhairday Wed 03-Nov-10 13:14:50

<<<CD>>> sorry to hear you're having one of those days. I am praying for strength and reassurance for you. Sometimes we need to feel God's presence as well as just knowing he is holding us. I pray that you will today.

DO - praying for Bob, hope he gets the tablets and feels much better soon.

Interloper, so pleased the little boy is doing OK.

Not much to report here - friends dd doing ok on the feeding tube for now, thankfully.

Hermya321 Wed 03-Nov-10 13:39:53

Praying for people as I read through.

DS was weighed today, he's back up to his birth weight and seems to be thriving praise God!!

Also I've been praying that my stitches heal well, praise God I was checked today and an open cut I had was closed and healing so I'm very very thankful.

Just prayers for my physical and emotional recovery would be brilliant. I've been a bit teary recently and the fact that my stitches still ache is adding to my frustration. I have been praying into it, but I would additional prayer support.

I hope you all are well.

TAFKAtheUrbanDryad Wed 03-Nov-10 18:09:05

Hi there, as some of you will know I am DutchOma's dd - my mum asked me to let you know that my dad is in hospital, he went in today and is on oxygen and antibiotics.

elkiedee Wed 03-Nov-10 18:12:17

I'm not religious but wanted to post here that I'm thinking of DutchOma and her dh (and Urban and little ones of course).

MaryBS Wed 03-Nov-10 18:12:35

Thanks TAFKA, its good of you to let her know. Can you tell her we're praying and thinking of them both? How are you, are YOU OK? And DH and the little ones?

MaryBS Wed 03-Nov-10 18:12:59

Let US know blush

Teaandcakeplease Wed 03-Nov-10 18:44:37

Thanks TAFKA praying x

Hermya321 Wed 03-Nov-10 19:16:23
