Updates on April

As most of you know my sister April has been having complications with her pregnancy. She is 20weeks and 2days gestationally. As of Saturday night she has been hospitalized due to heavy bleeding, which is a big risk to her own life at this point. April is such a strong person and so giving and selfless, that she never even considered the bleeding to be a threat to her own life. Sunday she bled all day and the nurses and her doctor wanted to give her a blood transfusion. Up until this point she has not had one. Her hematocrit was at a level she could be okay with. Last night though, she started contracting a few minutes apart after a large amount of blood was passed. Her doctor said he couldn't stop the labor with her loosing this amount of blood, but before anything could happen she just stopped contracting. Miracle, we thought. The baby boy has been doing amazing which has given her so much hope. Even last night before I left the hospital he was still kicking and had a strong heart beat. Not much has changed I am waiting by my phone and praying with all my heart for a miracle for April and for the sweet little guy. Trent is being so strong and doing just what a husband and father should do at this point. Please pray for them and have faith that everything can work out for the best.

My personal feeling is that this little guy is a fighter. Heavenly Father wanted him to come down to earth, get a body and then return to him. He must be a very choice spirit and Heavenly Father doesn't want him to be tainted by this horrible world. He will go straight to the Celestial Kingdom, which every parent wants for their children!

I will keep you updated as the days go on and I will try to get April's password to keep you updated there as well.

WE LOVE YOU APRIL TRENT HUDSON RUBY AND BABY BOY!

I am so sorry to hear about your sister and the complications with her pregnancy. That is scary. I am glad that things have stopped for now. Hopefully they can make it through these next couple of weeks, atleast get her to 24 (hopefully longer).
