Update on Angel!

Angel was the woman in the previous post with severe pre-eclampsia. I went to see her this morning and surprise surprise she was holding an adorable viable baby boy!!!! She was watching tv last night in the ward and thought that she wanted to take a bath. Went to the bath tub and out he came! She delivered him by herself! She called the nurse and was cared for and the baby is doing great! He was only 28 weeks gestation and is a mere 1.9kgs but he is eating and doing well on his own!! Just the fact that he doesn't need to be in the NICU is a miracle in itself!

I am so thankful that not only did she have a safe delivery he is doing so well on his own! Thanks for your prayers!

    I hope everything is going well. Africa is quite a beautiful country. I am enjoying the pics. Purpose sounds like a fighter. I know that when she grows a little older there are artificial skulls that are placed on patients that have hemi craniectomies performed in the US due to traumatic or tumor cases where their own skull can not be used. I dont know the specifics on that I will ask around next time I see the Neurosurgery team my team works with.
    Good luck with the rest of your time.
