Hi Monkeys~well, this has been such a roller coaster of emotions...this morning I had to pull a "Shirley McLaine" from Terms of Endearment to get her a shot for pain......I guess the nurse didn't feel the need to follow the dr's orders for 1 1/2 hours (after 100 hrs of labor) She and I had a "come to Jesus" meeting", and I fired her Biatch gramma came out full force.  Things were pretty bleak this am, her BP has 70/38 and she was in terrible pain Finally, the head doc's decided that her body was running a marathon not knowing where the finish line was and took her off all the meds that stop contractions and ONLY treated pain~amazingly her blood pressure returned to normal and so did her oxygen saturation, she was watching tv for the first time since this started and reading magazines. Friday she starts the steroid and it's a miracle she's made it this far. Last ultrasound Elijah was very healthy and active and to use a line from Peaches "We are expecting a Miracle and turning over all of our fears to God. We have felt all the prayers and from last's night post, I hope you all know what a huge difference they made.......I let her read all your prayers and she was humbled as I am. We still have a long way to go, but hanging in there with your help.

Much love and gratitude to each and every one of you "storming heaven" with prayers.

Ahhhh IM, great news!  Our God is a miracle-working God!  Continued prayers for you, daughter, and Elijah! 

Please try and get some down-time, even if you can't sleep, ok?  And like other monkeys have said, try and eat something, even if you don't want to.  Gotta keep up your strength so you can remain strong for your daughter. 

I really would like to have been a fly on the wall, watching you take down the staff!     Good for you!!  Nobody messes around with a grandma! 

Please update when you are able, and know that we are sending power thoughts your way.  Give your daughter a hug from us, k?  She's doing a fine job! 

Tell her for me that this will make a terrific guilt trip she can lay on Elijah at the appropriate moment, for the rest of his life!     j/k  I carried my youngest for an entire month overdue, he's 24 and <ahem> occasionally hears about it from me.

Watching TV and reading Mags!!!      Ya Hoo!!!       I am continuing to pray. You know I go to bed early and Elijah was on my mind!!  Funny isn't it?? I don't even know his mom or his family {other than monkey status} and yet he is on my mind and I am worring about him!!

Gosh, IM, I am happy things are looking up and tell that child to stay put for a spell more. If not we will tell Klaas and send her in!!

IM- I will be continuing prayers for your daughter and little Elijah.  I am in awe of the power of prayer.  You quoted our dear Peaches in your post, and I too will quote her - she said this to us alot....God is Good.  He is, and He has your daughter and grandbaby in His hands.  There is No better place to be!  I pray for strength for you and your daughter and that little Elijah grows stronger by the minute.  I also pray for a peace to surround you and your family and know that everything will be okay.

Hang in there Grandma! You keep those doctors and nurses on their toes! (((HUGS)))

I feel like I am literally putting a prayer request a week in here...

My stepdad died a week ago today. I have been back home helping my mama and brother and sister...he was 53, and died because the company he works for let a man come back to work after having hip replacement surgery too soon, still oozing from his wounds, and he spread a staph infection around the warehouse. My stepdad was the 8th person in 6 months there to get it, and lost his life. Before him, a man had to have his foot amputated because of it. It's not fair, and Im a wreck of emotions, but I just wanted you to all know that I am praying for you all as well, and thank you so much for all of your prayers. Meme is doing the same, and the baby is okay, but still expecting a surgery in 3-6 months.

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. My husband a few years back got an infection like that, months of doctors and even an operation, now he is fine. My heart breaks for you, and so young, I'm truly sorry. Mary

thank you, I really appreciate your thoughts and prayers.

I am a christian, and I am trying to look at this situation from that point of view, and my previous post might not have reflected that. I am truly glad that I can take comfort in knowing that he is with God right now, and is not in any pain anymore. It's just not right for a company to allow those types of things to go on when they are clearly safety violations. The health department is doing an investigation on them now though, which is good, it just should have been done long before this point. well...I guess that was a rant..

Anyway, thank you Mary Smile

You are right on that, matter of fact where my husband works, one of the employees was contagious and called up the boss and said he was fine and really wanted to get back to work, and the boss let him. I worried because of what my husband had gone through and thought how awful exposing the workers like that. I am glad you can take comfort knowing he is with God now.

Hi gang, just a quick update...last night when I left everything was great, but then this morning I get in and she looks horrific Her boyfriend tells me that they took her off of the pain meds (except motrin  ) and I was blown away after we had all just had a conference with the head of the departments on how important it was to keep her pain under control. He told me that the top doc ordered them to keep her off the pain meds and she was doing fine just breathing thru them  Well, since I knew the head of the dept had an account where I work, I got his cell number and called him at home....turns out baby daddy hasn't slept in 5 days and told doc she had trouble breathing and that she was doing fine without them I got her back on them asap and when I left tonight the nurses told me how he was so worried about the pain meds last night and how they reassured him that the doc would never order anything that would harm baby or mom, so tonight they told my daughter, when you first feel them pain return call asap so they can stay on top of the pain, and then I told them "if he pulls that crap again, just kick him in the gonads every time she has a contraction", since all the nurses are women they volunteered to take turns seeing how well he likes excruiating pain

Tomorrow at midnight is the 24 week mark and she can get her steroids then. Elijah looked great on the ultrasound and was kicking and acting like a little soccer player moving so much, so we are still hanging in there just counting each and every day as a blessing from God.

Also, I slipped him some valium kitty in his drink tonight (baby daddy) so he would be out and let the proper caregivers decide about pain control
