Patrick and Holly Briscoe, some friends of ours from Kansas City (and Harding), just had their baby girl Addison last night by emergency c-section at 27 weeks 5 days. Holly went to the doctor worried because of decreased movement and it was determined that she had very low fluid levels and the baby was in distress and measuring 3 weeks behind. They tried to get a careflight to Dallas but weren't able to wait and had to deliver immediately in Longview. She weighed 1 lb. 11 ounces 13.5 inches.
So far the doctors have given Addison an A+ but will be taking it one hour at a time. I am not sure at this time what type of life saving support she is on, but I will let you know as soon as I hear.
Patrick and Holly were in the process of moving all of the possessions this weekend to their new home in Longview, Texas where he will be joining an orthodontics practice at the beginning of August. He is due to graduate Ortho school in two weeks in Kansas city.
Please pray for all three of them right now....especially for little Addison.
