Begging for prayers....***update and ****another update

I am begging for prayers today.


My older brother called this morning and said that my SIL, who is about 24 weeks pregnant with our sweet Nephew, suffered a stroke this morning. She's in the critical care unit and may be transferred to a bigger hospital with a higher level unit.

We are all so scared and begging God to watch over her and our nephew.

They have 2 other little ones at home, D who is almost 3 and L who is 1.5. 

Thank you ahead of time for the prayers....

****
Update from my brother this morning:

"MRA showed more bleeding and swelling. Possible surgery this morning to reduce swelling if blood work looks good."
Please, please keep praying.... 

******
She's out of surgery and everything went very well. She's still incubated but is doing well with her breathing and won't need that hopefully too much longer they said. Also, 
They just got the results back from her first scan post surgery and there is already decompression and the swelling is going down and nowhere near the brain stem. She was able to squeeze matts hand on command which they were looking for function to be like before her surgery. Obviously a very very long road and so many unknowns but we are stepping back and counting our blessings for the now and for all the good that  has occurred today. One thing at a time. One moment at a time.  And little Leander is doing well-healthy and doing amazing considering everything mama is going through.

Praying! I had a stroke in August and have been very lucky in my healing, but if she wants to talk to some in the future or if you want to talk, let me know.

Thank you for the updates! So glad to hear that progress is being made, even if it's little by little. I offered up my mass and rosary for her this morning and will continue to pray like crazy! Please let me know if there's anything else that myself or Jason can do to help.

God bless+
Becky
