Sadness

Carey is in the hospital. We are grieving the loss of baby "A", who was delivered yesterday at only 15 oz and 9 3/4 inches long. We had a heartbeat for nearly 2 hours and we loved him and took in every little detail while we held his tiny little body... Carey's cervix decided to dilate and thin on it's own. When she started bleeding we went straight to the dr's office where they discovered she had a "bulging bag" The amniotic sac had "hourglassed" into her cervix, with Owen still kicking as usual. After an amniocentisis to check for infection (done once for each), they calmed the contractions in the uterus. Then, her water broke. We have been to hell and back in 24 hours...A long story short, the high risk OB developed a plan to deliver Owen- who would surely die- and stich her cervix closed to save baby "B". The chances of success with all of the factors involved were slim- but the doctor managed to stitch her cervix. Carey is in bed, with major doses of Magneium sulfate to ,again,calm the uterus' contractions. the baby has a strong heartbeat and as far as we can tell, is doing fine. I have a lot of things to tend to at the moment, but when I can I will try to add more details of our journey. Please pray for baby "B" to be able to stay in utero and Carey's continued health.
