    Our new addition

    On 12-21-21 my wife gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. We are more then overjoyed with the addition to our family as this is our first. But the joy was short lived as my wife started having complications right after. She was loosing blood after the delivery and thy could not stop it. Thy eventually got it stopped and she had lost over 2L. She was very anemic which she was taking medication for to get her blood back up. Then one night she tested her blood pressure and it was very high. We ran to the emergency room and she was diagnosed with preeclampsia which can be fatale if not treated for. Then last week she started noticing and very hard lump on her left side. That quickly started to hurt and grow. Thy prescribed an antibiotic but after 3 days it did not help. So Sunday we took her to the emergency room because it was the size of a base ball and she had a temp of 101. The instantly admitted her and put her on an antibiotic IV. She will be there all week as thy take care of the infection. So I am home all alone taking care of our new son and today I’m going to go in and stay with her for the rest of the week. Sorry for bringing this here I just needed to kinda let it out.

    By all means,, let it out here. We do NOT mind. Venting can help.

    That said,, as many have offered,, congrats on your new son. And of course,, prayers up for your wife to fully recover.

    You are not alone in having to face struggles of such depth. Many here,, and in other places also are facing ups & downs. I have a story from Christmas Day that could give a lot of folks a serious case of heartache,, but this isn't the place. We want to focus on YOUR wife,, and YOUR son,, and YOU as well!

    I will say,, trust in God. No matter what,, trust in Him.

    Prayers for an accurate diagnosis of your wife's problem and appropriate treatment. You need help at the moment, are there grandparents, siblings, friends, help from a Church, ect. that is available to you?
    We will be praying for your support system as well.
