I was gone the month of April to Ft Campbell, KY as my daughter was having a new baby. Stormie Sky was born on April 19. A preemie at 6.9 lbs, a joy to behold. After I returned home my daughter, Kristina noticed Stormie had a Petechiae/Angioma above one of her eyes. This is a red mark where a blood vessel has been broken and normally is not serious.
Last week Stormie became ill with a fever and a green discharge from the eye with the Petechiae. At the doctors office bad news fell hard upon our hearts. Stormie has a heart murmur diagnosed by two different doctors. She needs further testing...EKG, Xrays to determine the cause which I think will be done sometime next week. And that alone is great cause for concern. Upon further examination of her eye the Petechiace is an Angioma which means there is a bump on the inside of the eyelid resting upon her eye. Kristina is taking Stormie to an eye specialist in Nashville TN on Monday.
My daughter is alone with four other childern to care for; besides running the entire household by herself. Joe is serving in Iraq. He did get RR for 18 days and was home when Stormie was born. Which was a huge blessing for our family.
It is not possible for me to go back to Ky now...so I ask that this great community to come together to pray for Kristina to have the strength to endure whatever may come...whatever she must do. I especially ask for prayer for Stormie. She may be small but, she is strong. She eats well and continues to gain weight. So I hope that she will live up to her name and storms through to a full recovery. I will report undates on her health soon as we know anything further.
I took a ss of Stormie and uploaded it to image shack but alas I do not know how to post it here. I tried to upload her picture to my photo gallery but alas WC will not let me
