Please keep both mother and baby in prayer…Elizabeth has had a significant relapse and is once again experiencing pre-eclampsia, this time postpartum.   Her blood pressure is incredibly high (even while sleeping), her protein levels are elevated and the edema has returned.  She is back on bed rest and not allowed to be ambulatory until the Dr. determines how well she’s responding to Procardia.   Baby Ben has also been diagnosed with PDA (patent ductus arteriosus).  He is receiving medication to help close the valve and is beginning to respond.  Additional good news:  he is tolerating the weaning process from the ventilator.  The plan is to try to take him off completely by tomorrow afternoon.

Many thanks for your continued prayers…
