Confessions of a Coffee Crazed Nurse

Yesterday at work it was quite busy. Especially for a Sunday. Lots of babies born and doing wonderfully. However, we did have a baby die yesterday. Which is certainly not easy and puts a somber mood throughout the birth center.
Mom was only 25 weeks and 4 days into her pregnancy. She had been on bedrest for the past 5 weeks, as her water broke at 20 weeks. (Keep in mind that a "term" pregnancy is 40 weeks). Yesterday she abrupted (her placenta detached from the uterine wall). This is a life threatening emergency. She was rushed to the OR for a c-section. Baby was born and weighed 2.2 pounds (which is actually HUGE for a 25 weeker), was stabalized and taken to the NICU. However, his lungs were too underdeveloped. The NICU staff were unable to save him. Never an easy situation.
I can't divulge names, but if you would please keep this family in your prayers, I know it would mean the world to them.
