I haven’t posted about a couple of angels because I don’t give all details of my life out on the ol’ blog world. This is important though.
My brother and his wife had twins a few days ago.
(They don’t live near us so I asked if I could snag some of their Facebook photos for this post)
Lillie Ann Grace
Luke Harris Wolff
They were born at 28 weeks gestation, which means they were 12 weeks early. Luke weighed 2 lbs 9oz and Lillie weighed 2 lbs 6oz.
Here is Lillie:
Tiny but pretty strong. She had to have surgery to close a flap that is supposed to close upon birth but doesn’t always (and in preemies, this surgery is semi-common).
Here is Luke:
He has his hands up like he is praying a lot. He is struggling now. He had blood in his lungs over the same flap issue as his sister. The surgery went well for both of them.
Here is where it changes.
Luke now has a level 4 bleed on his brain. Unlike his sister, who is trying to breathe on her own, he is not. The Drs. are now saying that if the bleed spreads to anymore areas of his brain, they may need to consider taking him off of life support.
Here is my plea:
Please pray for this sweet little baby. Pray that the bleed goes away and does no harm to him. Please pray that his sister continues to do as well as she seems to be doing now. Please pray for my brother and sister-in-law as they go through this scary roller coaster in life right now.
I will keep you updated on everything as I hear from my brother.
