Thinking of Myriam

My coworker Myriam is 25 weeks pregnant.

Early on Wednesday morning, Myriam's water broke. After an incredibly frustrating morning of trying to get any medical attention whatsoever (even from her own doctor), she was finally told that she had lost her mucus plug, but that her amniotic sac was still intact. Due to fibrous cysts, it's been a high risk pregnancy and since she's a legal resident of California (most of her family is there), Myriam had been planning to travel to the U.S. to deliver. She couldn't wait any longer to travel, though, so Margot accompanied her to Miami on Thursday. Upon arrival, Myriam began having contractions, learned that her water did break and that there was no fluid left in her amniotic sac.

Baby Clarens is still alive and Myriam is currently hospitalized at Jackson Memorial in a specialty clinic for premature births and is intermittently on an IV. Clarens is being given antibiotics to guard against infection as the doctors don't want him coming out any sooner than need be. In the meantime, Myriam's husband Gary (who has already been denied a visa once) is applying for a visa to be able to be with her.

Please join us in praying for Myriam, Gary and Clarens.

I live in the area, only about 30 miles from Miami. Can I visit Myriam, bring her a book?, needed personal items? I'm here to help. cthard05@comcast.net

Will definitely be praying for Myriam, Clarens and Gary. God's peace to all. Having worked as a NICU RN for many years, I understand what lies ahead for little Clarens. May God continue to knit him together in his mother's womb, until the knitting must continue outside of it. Julie
