Of Strong, Struggling Moms

Krissy is currently pregnant like I am, and due this December. Her firstborn, Anya, is currently confined at Asian Hospital for pneumonia and we've all been appealing for prayers for their family for Baby Anya.

Normally, though pneumonia is serious even for adults, there won't be such a plea for prayers. But Anya has many conditions, like lissencephaly, which makes pneumonia a number one enemy. She has been losing weight when she needs to be gaining at least 4 kilos asap. We're praying for no more complications and a strong fighting spirit for her... and her parents.

I cannot imagine how it is to be Krissy right now, pregnant and scared. Not only does she have to take care of herself and her unborn, she also needs to be with Anya to help her fight.

I told hubs, maybe that's why I'm dreaming of them a lot... because again, I never realized how lucky I've been to be pregnant with a healthy firstborn. It takes all of my wits already to just manage each day, so I really can't imagine how hard it must be for my friend.

But Krissy is prayerful... I know things are hard for her but I know her faith keeps her strong and sane. But please, do offer a prayer with us for Baby Anya and her family. Thank you.
