Default your good thoughts and prayers please..

I don't usually do this much, but maybe you'll forgive me.

A very close friend of mine was admitted to hospital yesterday, in premature labour (24 weeks), and in a bad state, health wise.
Her bloodpressure went up to astronomical heights, and she lost her sight temporarily, and her little boys heartrate dropped so dangerously low that after several hours of trying to stop the labour, the doctors decided that they would both have a better chance of survival if they perfomed an emergency c-section.
Rhys was delivered in the evening, weighing just 1lb 6oz, and he was not expected to make it through the night, even on a ventilator and several drips to try to get his circulation going.
At around 2 am he was put in his mothers arms after his heartrate dropped to just 20 beats a minute, and the doctor told her that she should prepare herself to say goodbye to him, as he was unlikely to survive the next few hours.
My friend held him for several hours, talking and singing to him. The contact must have been amazing, because his HR went up to around 50 beats. A little while later it dipped again, but it seems to have now settled at 55.
They are now saying he might have a chance, it looks like he's a born fighter, and a true little miracle, as my friend was told she was infertile after a spot of messed up surgery.

Please send good thoughts and prayers this way.

sorry gil. I cried a bucket when her boyfriend texted me this morning with the update on their little boy.
I really have everything crossed for the three, I think they need all the good thoughts and prayers they can get.
Will be going to see them later in the afternoon.

my god, I have never seen such a tiny human being ever before. it's terrifying, and so very amazing.
they say he's pretty big for being so premature, which is a good thing, and he even managed a couple of cries..

edit: I got a piccie if anyone should be interested...

Rhys has already been in our prayers in an around-about way. We have friends here that have a grandchild in a similar situation. Not quite as small but very tiny. Our prayers will continue for Rhys and family and for my Lady and 'bump.'

yeah, 24 weeks is really tiny. I do know the border nowadays is around 25/ 24 weeks.
It's good to hear that they encourage contact with the mother nowadays. When I was born they didn't do that.
I am sure that will help a lot. Keep us updated.

Anaiya: It will be weeks before you can say anything for sure.
Rhys will be very susceptible for illness and infection.

I know, but at least his heart seems to be working a little better now.
Even being as close to my friend as I am, I can't imaging what it must be like to see your child like that..
