On the morning of August 16th at 24 weeks 5 day pregnant my wife noticed she was bleeding and had what the doctors called a Bulging bag. In sheer panic she rushed to the hospital. When she arrived she was met by the OBGYN who told her she was dilated to a 7. Later that night the doctor told us the medication they were giving her to reduce contractions were not working and we would definitely be having a baby.
Due to the extreme dangers with such an early delivery she had to have an emergency C section and they would have to put her under general anesthesia to do so. We were so scared.
That night at 7:23 pm God gave us the most precious gift- a very tiny little baby. We named her Zoey Lynne Hughes. She weighed 1lb. 9oz. and is 13 1/4 inches long. She is so precious and she has been fighting for her life!
She has many obstacles to overcome for the next 15 weeks and under the care of her amazing doctors and nurses in the NICU we pray that time flies by. She has many difficulties and issues to battle being so small and born way to early.
One of the many things we are worried about is that she has some bleeding on her brain. This is an issue mothers and fathers have nightmares over. The doctors are watching it and hoping that the blood will absorb and not get worse causing lasting damage.
Well that’s the story in a short version. Laura and I are struggling with this situation and are asking for people to pray for us.
With all the time off of work, back and forth we need help financially for medical bills, gas, and food the unexpected loss of income.
More importantly we are trying to get as many people to pray for her and us as we can. As Christians we believe that God can do Miraculous things and we believe this Christmas we will be sitting in front of our family Christmas tree celebrating the birth of Christ and the Miracle he gave us this year. Please share this to everybody you know and ask them to pray for us.
Thank you everyone for your support though this crazy adventure we are on!
Cliff, Laura & Zoey
