Our dear friend Laura was a surrogate for a couple and just gave birth to a sweet baby boy for a couple. The baby Michael is just weeks old. Laura sent us this prayer request. Please keep the entire family in your prayers:
I need some prayer warriors right now. Jessica (baby Michael's mom) is currently in the ICU in a medically induced coma. She is battling a severe case of bacterial pneumonia.
The drs have been unsuccessful in keeping her Blood Pressure up and Heart Rate low while also keeping her O2 levels up. She's been fighting it for a week now but things seem to be getting more complicated and worse.
Baby Michael is 2 weeks old and I can't imagine being in the hospital away from a baby I fought so hard and for so long to get. Mike (the dad) is reasonably in bad shape mentally, watching his wife in such poor shape and staying away from his newborn as well.
Thankfully both of their families live close by and have taken on a lot, including taking care of baby Michael, so Mike can be by Jessica's bedside in the hospital.
Send all the prayers, love and hope you can!
