At Loss For Words...

As we heard about Rachel & Ryan, Hannah and Carly's parents, going through their tough time. I have gotten an update that I felt needed to be shared with everyone tonight.

Hey guys. This is Rachel's sister in law. I just wanted to update you a bit. I'm not sure when Rachel will be able to do it. She was at our house Wed. and Thurs here in Fayetteville, and everything was fine. She had a drs appt Wed. morning, and Hannah's heartbeat was great. Thurs night, she stopped feeling Hannah move. She drank coffee and laid down, and still felt nothing, so she went to the hospital in Albemarle. They tried for 2 hours to find her heartbeat, but couldn't, and the OB later came in to do an ultrasound to confirm.

Hannah was born Friday morning at 9:05, weighing in at 2lbs 15 ozs. She was beautiful with a head full of black hair. An autopsy was preformed, but we won't get the results back for a while. Rachel's having very serious complications from the c-section. She is running a high fever, and was bleeding very badly. Her iron was very low, so they started her on iron and antibiotics. The Dr came in today and told her what was going on with her. He said that the placenta was attached to the uterine scar tissue from the first c-section. That was why the cord wasn't delivering what it needed to to Hannah. He also was not able to take it all out due to some large blood veins around it. Now, she is looking at possibly having to go through a DNC (is that right?) and also possibly a full hysterectomy. I PRAY that that doesn't happen, because, obviously, that would mean no children. The OB said that he doesn't recommend any future pregnancies anyway, due to the risk involved for her and the baby. He is planning on sending her to Chapel Hill to see a specialist.

We need serious prayer warriors on her behalf. Hannah Kathleen's funeral is set for Thurs. It will be graveside, with immediate family only. She'll be buried with her angel sister. :) Thank you for your concern and your prayers during this extremely difficult time. The good news is, Rachel and Ryan have strong faith, and they are trusting in God for the future. keep in touch.

Everyone, please pray for Rachel and Ryan as they go through this difficult time. Hannah's blog is: Hannah's Story - Please leave your condolences on her blog, so she will return to an overwhelming response of thoughts and prayers.

I will touch base in the morning with our update, but please give support to Rachel and Ryan as they gave us so much support with Kayleigh.

God Bless them!

Hello Freeman family. I've been following your story here for about 2 weeks. I must say you have the most beautiful and amazing little girl. She's an example to everyone not to give up no matter what. What a wonderful family. I'm wishing you all the best. Kayleigh is a strong girl, she'll come through all of this with flying colors. I'll be praying for all of you for God to continue to give you strength. Naomi O from MN.

Thank you for posting this. I know that God hears our prayers, and its good to know that so many are going up fo Rachel and Ryan. Rachel was discharged from the hospital today. We'll know more later. I'm sure that she will be on soon to update you more on her condition. I hope that I got everything right in the previous post.. :) If not, I'm sure she'll correct me. She's resting at home now. I was going to post also, that she is wanting to go ahead and sell Carly and Hannah's things..furniture, clothes, stroller, carseat, etc. She has everything needed for a little girl. If anyone is interested in purchasing anything, most of it is all brand new. Just let her know. Thank you again for all of your support and prayers. God is in control of all things, and I know that He will carry them through this. Someone left a beautiful verse on Hannah's blog that I wanted to share with all of you..

"Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. You will increase my honor and comfort me once again." -Psalm 71:20-21
