Desperate Plea for Prayers

The sister-in-law of a friend of ours went into early labor at the beginning of March.  She was pregnant with twins and the doctors had to do an emergency c-section at 24 weeks.  Unfortunately, the babies did not survive.  What’s worse, after the delivery of the second baby, the young mother went into cardiac arrest.  The doctor’s did CPR for about an hour before she revived to a normal hearbeat.  The doctor’s then put her into a medically induced coma. 

It was an amniotic embolism that put her into cardiac arrest.  This is a rare thing, it happens only in 1 out of 80,000 deliveries.  The young woman is now out of the coma and recovering, but she hasn’t been told about the deaths of her babies yet.  She has a long and challenging road ahead of her. 

Please keep her and her family in your prayers.  Thank you!

I finally understand

"Among those around you, apostolic soul, you are the stone fallen into the lake. With your word and your example, you produce a first circle, and it another, and another, and another, wider each time. Now do you understand the greatness of your mission?" St. Josemarie Escriva: The Way
