Hey June Ladies. I posted about my daughter Emma in our fb group, but I thought I would post on TB as well since I'm killing time in the NICU waiting for them to give the ok to see Emma again. I also figured we could use all of the prayers we can get.
Emma Rose is currently in the NICU at The Children's Medical Center of Dallas. She will be here for a minimum of a month, but it could be several. I was diagnosed group b strep positive while I was pregnant, and even though it was treated during my labor with Emma, not all of it cleared up. Emma has had the virus since birth, and it was only a matter of time before it reared its ugly head. Because of the group b, Emma is currently fighting a severe case of meningitis. She also has a pocket of fluid on her brain and there could possibly be long term effects or brain damage.
She started having seizures yesterday morning and she stopped breathing for 20 seconds. I immediately called 911 and they rushed her to the hospital. She had several sezuires at the hospital and was transferred to the Dallas children's hospital. They've been taking great care of her here and I honestly wouldn't want her to be anywhere else. Please be praying for Emma and my family. This has been the most nerve wracking 36 hours of my life, but I know God is in control and I'm praying for complete healing for my LO. Thanks ladies.
