I am on this forum not for myself but for my sister's preemie daughter who was born at 32 weeks last Sunday May 6. So my sister went in for a swollen finger and while she was there they checked on the baby just to make sure everything was okay since they said it was a spider bite that caused her finger to swell up, so they put her on the monitor and she was having contractions every 2-3 mins but the crazy thing was she was not having pain at all! They checked her and surprisingly she was 4cm dilated
Her labor was fast and she had my little niece just a few hrs later, born weighing 3lbs...she seemed so perfect and healthy even for a preemie baby! But as the days went by she started getting worse
So she was only receiving nutrients through IV bc her intestines are inflamed ...so today I checked in on her and now they say she has a blood infection and something called GBC??? I'm clueless! My sister is only 17, and she has no idea how to handle this, she won't leave her side and seems like she's going into depression
Don't know how to help her so if any you mommas have been through a similar case would you be so kind and share with me, I need all the prayers and support for my beautiful niece, btw her name is Delilah
Here are some pics, I nicknamed her "JuneBug"
