I need help! My 23 yo DIL (daughter-in-law) is 34 weeks preg with her 2nd child and has just been diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure. She saw a high-risk ob/gyn today who told her she is okay while pregnant but faces an enormous risk of death at time of delivery and for 6 weeks after. The baby is fine, he already weighs 5lb.9oz. according to ultrasound so they want to take him early, in 3 weeks, before he gets too big. She also has gest diabetes. She is terrified as are we. I just don't know where to turn. I posted on pregnancy discussion but no one replied (they aren't as nice as us depressed pll). Has anyone ever heard of this or know where to get info? I googled it but the info just wasn't there. She lives in the next state over and our son, her husband, is a total idiot and is not there for her. Sorry for the long, off the subject post, just thought maybe someone could help. Definitely need poetrywriter and her prayers.
