Pray for Baby Faith

The little miracle baby, who has astonished doctors by thriving for three months despite having anencephaly is sick. She has a distended tummy and blood in her diaper. This is very very not good. Pray for little Faith, her mommy, and the doctors who have treated her like any other baby.

Thanks for letting me know- I will be praying hard. Such an amazing little girl and Mum

I will do that.

Sorry, but this isn't going to help.

The blood in the diaper (and apparently the vomit) could have two causes (I'm quoting what I understand from a friend who is a doctor, just a GP but has researched the subject)

Most likely is the vast amounts of steroids the baby has been on will have compromised the integrity of the stomach or intestinal lining, ulcerating and causing severe internal bleeding.

In fact, reading Myah's last post, that seems to be the case.

I'm pretty sure the end draws near for faith :(

Aww, poor little girl. :-( I will pray for her as well.

Baby Faith has passed away. I would like to send flowers for the funeral but I don't know where to send them. Does anyone know where to send them, or Myah's email address so that I can ask where to send them? My email address is army.wife2002@yahoo.com ... if anyone could help me out, I'd appreciate it.

Many thanks to the kind person who sent me Myah's email address. Although I only knew Myah and Faith from their online blog, I feel touched by their story and sad that Faith was only in the world a little while. I wanted so much to do something to show Myah that people care. Thanks again.

93 days of love. And at least Myah knew (as most of us lose sight of) that every day with her baby was a gift. She made the most of every moment.
