I'm a Grandma...

I am a Grandma 10 weeks early. Mother & baby are doing fine now. My daughter had severe pre-eclampsia?? (dont know the correct spelling) but you get the idea. It was emergency c-section on Tuesday morning. heather's body was really sick and need a blood transfusion for play-lits (spelling??) they were rock bottom, just under 20,000. She is doing so much better today. She gets to come home hopefully tomorrow. baby Brianna will be in NICU for 2 months give or take. problems arise daily with her, but they deal with it day by day. Survival rate is 100%. She weighed 3 lbs. but is now at 2lbs. 13oz. Here is a pic of our little princess
Brianna may have heart surgery, where they make an incesion on her back and clamp her extra artery? ususally it closes right after birth on full term, but not premies. I could go on and on, but I am so tired of repeating everything. it's been such a long week for me. I am finally getting rest tonite, but not after I read some of your blogs. There are so many and I cant wait to see what each and everyone has started and finished. Again I have no stitchy news, as I have not stitched for awhile, probably a good week, since the tree fell. Heather is coming here for a few days, till she gets home sick. Her bed is so high, we need to get a step for her to get in bed and she cant drive for 2 weeks, so I will take her to finish her summer courses, what is left of them. She doesnt really cook, so I will feed her good too. I feel so bad for her being 20 and having a not so good pregnancy with back aches and then this happening. Please keep Brianna in her prayers, as she needs all the help she can get. Our church held a pray circle which really made me emotional. I promise to have stitchy news next time I post.
Happy Stitching!!

Congrats on being a grandma. Good thoughts and prayers going out to you,baby and DD. Stitching can take a back seat for now as you have a much better task right now.
Wishing you all the best.

Dearest Ranae, My heart goes out to you and your precious family. I know the joys and heart-heaviness of these days you're going through. My oldest stepson & his wife went through the exact same thing...we do have a darling granddaughter, Amelia, who will be 6 yrs old this month to be thankful for!!! :) You will have Brianna who will soon make everything worthwhile for all of you.
Many hugs and love & prayers,
Deb

Congrats on your grandbaby Ranae! Many hugs and love and extra prayers sent up for this little beauty.
All of my children were born early. The first three were born at 34 weeks (6 weeks early) and my last was born 4 weeks early. I luckily didn't have issues with the girls (1st and 4th) but the twins, were in the NICU for 11 days. SO I understand well. I will pray HARD for her quick and speedy homecoming!

jane said...

What a beautiful little grandbaby!
I will pray for her and for you and your family.

Julie said...

Ranae! I'm so sorry for not having read these posts earlier, but I'm so glad you have good news now and that little Brianna and mommy are doing well. All of you will be in my thoughts. Oh goodness, I can't even begin to imagine but I rest that you're doing okay as you've started stitching a new piece - that is good news too.
