Lots of Prayers Needed

Ironic Catholic mentioned that a friend of hers is having a bit of a problem pregnancy, and has been ordered to stay in hospital for complete bedrest.

So far, Ashley has completed 23 days - now before any of you student-types get excited at the idea of spending 23 days lounging around, think about this: 23 days stuck in a hospital bed? Where you can't just get up and go for a walk to the local pub with your friends? Same four walls. No choice. AND the worry about how the baby's doing...

I don't know how long she has got until she can get up again, but I think that a few prayers wouldn't go amiss in the meantime. And pop over to her blog and say hello, it'll help to pass the time (especially as so many at St. Blogs have given up blogging for Lent!)

On a related note, Dominican Idaho reports that Sophia (the 7-year-old who had a brain tumour) is making good progress - she's out of Intensive Care, and is starting to walk. She's still got a long road to recovery, and I'm not sure what the situation with her eyesight is, but it is looking very encouraging!

Thank you so much for adding me to your prayer requests. I am surviving these days on prayers, encouragement, and my blog!

I will be on bedrest for the duration of this pregnancy - I am hoping to make it to at least 36 weeks which means another 12 weeks of horizontal-ness!

In that case, Ashley, to help pass the time, consider yourself tagged for the Lenten meme as well!
