prenatal prayer request

| | Comments (6)

Some of y'all might remember Mark Windsor - he was a blogger here on St Blogs who has been on hiatus for a while.
I got an email from him yesterday and I just got his permission to post this information and prayer request.
His lovely wife Agnieszka went into early labor last night; 8 weeks premature. They've stopped it with drugs for now. Her water broke. She's stuck in the hospital until the baby comes.

(Excerpt from Mark's email follows:)

The problem is, they haven't figured out when to let that happen. Second dose of steroids was late last night. We saw the Dr. this morning. He said he's not hopeful that it will last a matter of weeks, and seems to be hoping to get through the next 48 hours to let the steroids have an effect. No signs of infection at this point.

Priest visited yesterday. Annointing of the sick, confession, communion. Very nice.

Getting help from my mom. She's in town for the duration.
Mother-in-law is scheduled for early January.

Amelia and Emma are beginning to show signs of stress - tummy problems.

What is sleep...

All three cats are sick. Mark

Saint Gianna, pray for her!
St. Joseph, patron of fathers, support Mark in what he must do.

The following prayer was written by St Gianna.

Jesus, I promise You to submit myself to all that You permit to befall me,make me only know Your will.
My most sweet Jesus, infinitely merciful God, most tender Father of souls,and in a particular way of the most weak, most miserable, most infirm which You carry with special tenderness between Your divine arms,
I come to You to ask You, through the love and merits of Your Sacred Heart,
the grace to comprehend and to do always Your holy will,
the grace to confide in You,
the grace to rest securely through time and eternity in Your loving divine arms. Amen


They are all remembered on the St. Blog's Prayer Network.

I will be keeping them in my prayers.

And thank you for the prayer from St.'s lovely.

Praying hard for them. Fingers and toes crossed!

St. Gianna, role model of a loving mother, successful career woman, and devout lover of Jesus, please help this family in their trials. Pray for them, and for all us mothers, that we may be strong and fearless in our love for our children, and for the Lord God. Amen.

In my prayers as well!

Let Mark know the Mamas are praying as well.....

Thanks everybody, I REALLY appreciate this.

It's a girl! Frances Grace Windsor, born 11:28pm 4 December.

4 pounds, 2.6 ounces
17.5 inches long
Wiggles a lot
Shocking black hair
Likes to disconnect herself from monitors

She's breathing on her own with a little oxygen, but otherwise she seems to be doing well. The doctors think she may be able to come home in 2-3 weeks. Mom's doing well too. She'll come home tomorrow.

Thanks again to everyone....especially our host, whose advice came in handy on more than one occasion.

oh, yeah, one more thing: Hiatus?
