In January 2009, I posted a blog about my cousin who was airlifted to Las Vegas (she was traveling) for an emergency c-section. At the time, they had not expected that either one of them would make it. That was nearly 22 months ago.
This past Friday, I got an email from my aunt about that same cousin. She had developed pre-eclampsia (last time it was eclampsia) and was being admitted to the hospital. This past Sunday afternoon I received word that they were going to do an emergency c-section once again.
Of course, I contacted a few friends here at CB and posted a prayer request. I'd like to thank all of those people for their prayers and support.
My newest little cousin (I have a lot of them :D) was born this past Sunday at 27 weeks gestation. She weighed one pound, six ounces ( 0.62kg) and is 12 and a half inches long (31.75 cm). She doesn't have a name as yet.
I have posted a picture of her. In order for you to understand just how tiny she is, please take a look at her left arm. Do you see the gold bracelet? Well, that's not a bracelet. That is her daddy's wedding ring. Her wrist was tiny enough to easily slip through the wedding ring.
Yes, we are praising God for what He has done!
The birth of a baby is such a blessed event. Thank God she was able to get the care she needed so this little baby could be born. Praise God.
