Baby Genna

Please pray for my brother and sister-in-law, and their baby, Genna (I mispelled it my last post). She was doing fine yesterday, then today while a nurse was giving her a bath, she turned blue and stopped breathing. She's in the intensive care now, and doctors are running tests, but haven't found anything wrong. Thank God she was with a nurse when she stopped breathing. I'm praying that she doesn't have any kind of birth defect. I called my brother to see what's going on, but I got his cell phone voice mail, and haven't heard back from him yet. I'm guessing he doesn't feel much like talking right now. I understand, because my daughter spent nearly two weeks in a pediatric ICU as a 3 week old baby, with a severe RSV infection that came very close to killing her. I was in no mood to talk to anyone either. Please just keep them in your prayers, and I'll post more when I find out what's going on.

Awww poor Genna. Laura I will surely keep them all in my family to be strong and pray that Genna gets better. :( Keep us updated.

I am so sorry to hear about little baby Genna. I used to volunteer at a NICU in Atlanta. There I talked with lots of families with premature and very ill newborns. It is an incredible stress to have a child sick like that. I hope Genna has a quick and full recovery!

I'm sending prayers for baby Gemma! My twin sisters were in NICU for nearly a month because they were so preemie, but the nurses are wonderful and they are 15 now. Have faith that the hospital staff will take good care of Gemma.

Oh that's awful. But thank goodness for that nurse. Chunky was a 2 mo. old in the hospital for some funky virus...if I ran the world babies would never get sick/ill.
