As some of you may know, I am an only child and as such, I have taken it upon myself to turn my friends and their families into my pseudo-siblings, parents, grandparents, etc. Well, Jamie, the bestie, is as close to a sister as I will ever have (she truly is considered a 2nd daughter by my parents) and her family really is my 2nd family. Because of her I have a pseudo-big sister (Katie), pseudo-little brother (Sean), 2 crazy pseudo-parents (Mama and Papa A) and 2 wonderful pseudo-grandparents (Mom-mom and Pop-pop).
Katie's water broke at 2 AM this morning and after getting to the hospital and realizing that the umbilical cord was showing, she was rushed into an emergency C-section. The placental tear that caused this was close to a vein and Baby Jake was losing blood. He was rushed to the pediatric ICU and from there transfered to the Children's Hospital. His father went with him, and doctor's are hoping to transfer Katie there some time this morning so the family can be together.
Jake is currently fighting for his life. So, please keep Baby Jake, Katie and the entire family in your thoughts and prayers this morning; they need it.
