Arrow Update from Susan P

I have just gotten off the phone with Susan P and she has asked me to relay some information regarding the unfortunate news she received at her ultrasound.

Unfortunately, due to medical complications, her baby is not going to make it. The baby is still alive now, but has medical conditions that have been deemed "incompatible with life." Susan has been to several specialists and doctors in three states to figure out what has happened and all results have been conclusive.

She is awaiting word from her doctor about a delivery date sometime next week (she's approximately 23 weeks) and she will deliver the baby by c-section. Her family will plan a memorial service through their church following the birth.

As I'm sure you can understand, she and her family are beyond grief-stricken and trying to figure out a way to cope with the devastation of this news. Next week will be immensely difficult and Susan will be away from TBC for some time while she recouperates from surgery and heals her broken heart.

Please say a prayer for this great family, this amazing mother, and this very special little girl.
They could use all the prayers you can send on their behalf.

ETA: I told her of everyone's concern for her when we had not heard back after the ultrasound. She was so touched that so many noticed that she was not around and is so grateful for everyone's concern and care.

I am so so sad for her. What awful news. Thanks for the update Deanna as she has been on my mind all the time. I pray that her family and friends give her comfort and that she knows in her heart all her TBC friends are with her too. So sorry Susan.
