Infection. Wake Me Up WHen It's All Over

November 16, 2013

Everything was good till Thursday night.  I started getting contractions and checked back into hospital.  My white blood cell count has go to a high level indicating infection.  I had to have an aminosentis (they took some of Jude's water) and a catheter shoved up to detect the infection.

Unless there is a miracle, I will be forced to deliver Jude today or tomorrow via an epidural or d and e.

The only thing we can ask for is prayer for peace and acceptance and healing for the cruel aftermath of grief that will follow.

  9. Lord I pray you will just embrace this family with your love, comfort and understanding right now. We don't always understand and know why things happen but we need to trust in you through times of joy amd times of hardship. I pray you will hold Holly close to you. Give her husband the ability to feel sorrow but also the ability to be strong for his wife. I pray Lord for a protective shield over Holly and Baby Jude. That this infection will be cleared and she will continue to hold baby Jude in her body for week and weeks to come. We hear of you making the blind see, the deaf hear. I pray for a blessing of a miracle apon Holly and Jude.
    -Amen
    My heart is breaking for you, I will continue to pray. (Hugs)

  12. Oh Holly. I have the biggest lump in my throat right now. I wish I could make this all better for you and baby Jude. My heart goes it to you & Darren. This is not fair and oh so sad. Sending all the love I can find and the tightest biggest squeezes ever. I am so sorry.

  13. I'm beyond crushed for you. I've been there. I've made that decision with my remaining twins of a triplet pregnancy. I'm so sorry. So many of the things that happened to you, happened to me too. It's one long unending nightmare. If the worst happens - and I'm so praying for a miracle for you - but if it happens and you want advice from someone who has walked thru this almost 2 years ago - I recommend delivering him, holding him, and calling Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep for pictures. I cherish my pictures and my memories of holding them. It's what keeps me going on the days when it feels like everyone has forgotten about them but me. They are my most priceless treasures now. I'm praying for miracles, strength and peace for all of you in the days ahead. ((hugs))

  16. I too went through this this 5 yrs ago. I was pg with a single baby and delivered at 21 wks. My heart is aching for you. Life is not fair....I always ask god "why us?" We also did ivf with one fresh and 3 frozen cycles. I agree with the other comment to deliver your baby, hold him and take lots of pictures. I cherish them and get them out when I'm having a bad day. My daughter now asks me who baby Jack is and I tell her he's our baby angel! Sending prayers...may God give you the strength to get through this.

  33. This *probably* will not help because it is a longterm, not a short term safeguard against infection, but have you been supplementing with Vitamin D (4000+ IU/day)? Have your levels ever been tested? If you have never done either, chances are that you are extremely deficient, given that you have a multiples pregnancy. If have never taken it before, take a megadose of Vitamin D now: it is required by your immune cells to produce this anti-microbial peptide called cathelicidin, which is a powerful first line of defense against infections.

    I don't know what benefit this will provide at this very late point, but it is easy to do and will not hurt.

    Other than this, all I can offer is prayer.

  36. Oh, Holly. I am devastated right now. I am praying so hard for you, Darren and baby Jude. No words can take away the pain, but know that you are all being lifted up to God by so many people.

  37. Firstly, i am so sorry you are going through all of this. It takes incredible strength to go through the nightmare that you are living.
    I agree with Alyssa Renner. If the worst happens contact NILMDTS and get lots of pictures. Hold him, read to him, sing to him. Do as much as you can with him. If they have little clothes for him, then dress him. Kiss him. You will cherish those moments with him. I am so sorry for your loss(es). Nothing can take that pain away. But i promise you, from one loss mom to another, it gets easier. The pain doesn't go away, but you get used to it. You learn to live with it. And you will smile again, and you'll pray again. I can't tell you when that will happen for you, but it will.

    But for now, i'm praying for a miracle for you & Darren. And praying little Jude makes it!

  38. Holly, I am so sorry for you. I read your blog every day and keep hoping for you and Jude. Nothing will ever change the nightmare you are going through or take away the pain. Cry when you want to. That's all the advice I can give right now. Praying!

  39. Holly, my heart hurts for you and Darren. Received several texts from your Aunt Tamela at 6:00 this morning. I am so sorry for the loss of your babies. What an awful thing for you to go through. Jude and Brinley are both in Jesus' arms now. You will see them again. Continued prayers for healing physically for you, as well as emotionally for you and your family. Hard to see it now, but God always has a plan. Keep friends and family close especially during your time of grieving.

  54. There truly are no words... All We can do is continue to show you and Darren our love and support. You're continued strength is inspiring on so many levels... I will say this though, I know when my friends and even strangers tell me how strong I am for all that I am going through I want to scream.... Sometimes I don't want to be strong... I want to be weak, sad, mad, shut out the world for a day if I feel like, and just not have to be strong!!! So, and I am sure that you are... Take time to just simply "be"... Feel what you need to feel and cry as much as you need to... You deserve a break from being strong! My mom and I cried together reading this last update and like many others following your story, we do not know you, but we love you from the bottom of our hearts and think of you and pray for you everyday!
