My nephew needs Orange Mane prayers/thoughts...
December 22, my sister-in-law went in for a C-section because the twin boys were actually causing her medical problems. They were 2 months premature. As premature babies, Jaret and Colten were put in the neonatal intensive care unit for care until they were able to function normally in society (breathing and so forth). Everything was OK for a while until Jaret started breathing irregularly. To make a long story short, Jaret's blood vessels burst inside of him and he died. Nobody knows for sure what caused it. He's going to have an autopsy done ASAP. Colten, meanwhile, has started breathing irregularly and they have put him on a different ventilator to get his oxygen level where it should be. Nobody knows whether he will pull through this or not. This is where the Orange Mane comes in. Please keep Colten in your thoughts/prayers. People are understandably having a difficult time with Jaret's death and we need Colten to make it. They say the first 72 hours are the most difficult for premature babies. One didn't make it, but I'm hoping the other one does. I'll keep everyone posted as soon as I know something different...
