Pregnant Wife Goes to the Hospital

The sight of your pregnant wife slowly sliding out of her chair, eyes rolling, skin turning white and clammy, ending up with her arms twitching as she lies unconscious on the floor is not something you see every day.

Needless to say, we had a very eventful day yesterday.

It turns out that she had a kidney infection and the acute pain and resultant low blood pressure brought about a lack of iron in the blood caused her to faint. After several tests (including an EKG) everything truly horrific was ruled out. Glory to God, she and the baby seem to be doing ok after yesterday's ordeal at the hospital.

There was one bit of potential bad news: the routine ultrasound revealed "an abnormality in the bowels" of the baby. Hard to say at this point if that means anything or nothing. We would certainly appreciate your prayers and I'll keep you posted as time goes by.

In other news, I start in-service training this coming week as I prepare to begin teaching this fall so posting may be scattered for the next few days. I do have a couple of posts in the works though, so stay tuned...
