A friend from my old birth club, Mellissa, just had a baby girl named Seraphina 4 days ago. Everything seemed fine and normal until yesterday when she wouldnt wake or cry to eat. Mellissa took her to the dr. where they tried to draw blood but when the nurse stuck her arm and couldn't find a vein, the baby immediately stopped crying, went limp and turned cold and blue. Medical people rushed in and were able to rouse the baby where they then rushed her to the ER. She's now in ICU and has remained unresponsive except for once to cry and eat. No one knows what is wrong or what has caused this and the parents are naturally very distraught. Please pray for this family and baby Seraphina.

I know this is upsetting. I'm pregnant with a baby girl so it's frightening and disturbing to me but I need y'all to pray.

Keep praying. They've moved her to a special children's icu. She has shown some good signs but they still don't know what's wrong. The Drs think she may have a spinal infection but can't get any fluid to test right now.

I am praying for the baby and her family. I hope the doctors find out what's wrong soon so they can see how to treat it!

Update from today on baby Seraphina:

Seraphina's large gestational weight caused her to have blood sugar issues- which were documented when she was born and her first days at the hospital. Seraphina's blood sugar, combined with an infection of some kind (still unknown- spinal tap will reveal if it is possibly meningitis) most likely caused her to act lethargic and stopped her desire to eat. Her blood sugar and infection, in addition to the stresses of the blood-work taken on the day we took her to the doctor, caused her system to shut down for a short period of time. Antibiotics are the treatment plan, doctors are currently in disagreement on length of time (it has been suggested 2-17 days more) but most seem to agree that 7-10 day treatment should be safe.

They think it was some type of bacterial infection now. I think she may have come home today!! I haven't gotten another update from the momma since Monday.
