Bad news challenges hope.
Maybe "bad" news is an inaccurate term. Perhaps painful news is better.
Whatever word describes it best for you ... it was news that I did NOT want to ever receive.
Checking email was not something that I spent a lot of time checking. It was Thanksgiving weekend and there was too much to do ... but, the situation demanded I at least check the subject lines.
It was from African and it simply read this way:
It's been a long day of restlessness and stress due to Lyzette's condition.
This morning Lyzette continued bleeding. Tests showed she was starting to have blood clots and her placenta was out, which gave the doctors a huge alert. They came up with a final analysis to carry on with the early delivery.
All seemed fine as the baby was pushed out. It was a boy. But an hour later he was pronounced dead.
The burial is scheduled at 10 AM on Sunday.
Call it sad news, bad news, or painful news. None of us wanted to hear this.
|Lyzette & Jeff ... on a happier day|
It's only a consolation to know that Lyzette had/has the best medical resources at her disposal. The NGM Maternal Advocacy Program is providing for all the financial demands this agonizing experience carries with it. She and Jeff don't need that additional concern.
Thank you for your prayers and your financial contributions. They mean a lot to Jeff and Lyzette. Now we pray for Lyzette's health to be restored and for God's healing of their hearts.
