A friend of my husband's from work, Elizabeth Danner, is pregnant for the first time and expecting a little girl. She didn't think she would ever be able to conceive, due to ovarian problems, and was very, very happy to find that she was pregnant.

Today, my husband found out she was taken to the hospital and has had placental abruption. At this time, we do not know the degree of the tear, or how severe it is. However, any time there is placental abruption, both fetal and maternal death are a risk, as well as fetal distress, brain damage, and lack of nutrition.

She is only 20 weeks along and has been put on complete bedrest. She also doesn't have great insurance, so the financial strain of not working and having to be monitored all the time will be very hard. Those of you who have had babies in the NICU know that the cost is phenomenal, so let's hope and pray that this baby can make it full term with no health issues!

Please pray for Elizabeth! We want her little girl to be born healthy and for both of them to survive this!
