Thinking of Kim

I received this email yesterday from my friend (and former roommate in Charlotte, NC!) Kim (whose blog is Ed's Girl 4 Life):

"I was admitted for an overnite stay on Saturday night at St.Mary's Hospital b/c I have had extreme pain w/ a kidney stone that is too big to, they are just hoping i can at least make it another 2 wks (which only puts me at 34wks--still early) and then they may have to induce just so they can crush this stone after my delivery.---Fun! I have pain meds that I have been given to use if needed and the doctor said that worst case scenario is if I have to take them every day til delivery then they will just wean the baby off Percocet! Great (Ed didn't like that very much--we really don't want a shaky baby :0) Please just pray that i won't have anymore pain b/c if you know how bad the pain can be--you need the pain meds. On the flip side, if i were to somehow cope w/ the pain, it could lead to premature labor and they warned me it was better at this point to stay out of labor----so you can see my dilemma. I am praying that the stone will miraculously dissolve itself and i won't have to deal w/ it again---it has caused me intermittent pain throughout this pregnancyand a chronic bladder infection that i have been on daily antibiotics since month 4, and my iron count is too low b/c of slow blood loss from this stone (which has me wasted)--but the pain has become unbearable just this week and I was passing straight blood. As much as i would love to not be pregnant anymore :0), I know it is too early even at 34wks to deliver for this little guy, so please continue to keep us in your prayers! ~Kim and Ed "

Hang in there Kim!

Oh no! I'll pray for her and her baby and her family. I hate to hear things like this.

The good news is, my daughter was born at 35 weeks and my son at 36, and neither ever had the slightest complication - didn't even need steroids to mature their lungs. So if labor does come early, it'll be manageable... neonatal care is SO much better than it was even 10 years ago.

Take care, Kim!
