C-Section Today

Today, between 3:00 and 4:00 PM, Kristen will be having C-section. As I have posted before, he water broke last Friday and they were watching things and letting her go into labor on her own unless something happened that was not good for her or the baby. Yesterday, she had very few contractions but every time the baby moved it hurt a lot more than before. Today, they said she had lost too much water and the baby has turned around which means he is breech now. This isn't good with a full term baby but with a preemie it presents more problems. Because he is so much smaller, there is a greater chance of the cord being compressed. So, it means a C-section.

Please keep Kristen, Taylor and baby Victory in your prayers. Please pray his lungs will do well and that there will be no complications. Please pray for a quick recovery for Kristen and a minimal stay in the NICU for Victory. Please pray for Dylan, Brooklyn and Preston that they will stay healthy. Thank you for all your prayers.
