A Grandmother again -- Need Prayers

Sunday evening at 7:37PM, Little Ella Marie made her way into this world. She is 8 weeks early and weighs 3 lbs 14 ozs and is 16 1/2 inches long. Right now she is in the NICCU on CPAP. She was given Surfactin to help mature her lungs. So far she is holding her own, but will be in the hospital for at least another 6-8 weeks baring complications. DDIL became pre-eclamptic. The MD decided to do a C-section to help avoid problems for both her and the baby. Her blood pressure is starting to come down now that the baby has been born and she is feeling tired but a little better. Both her and DS are worried about Little Ella though. I just wish they were not so far away from me. And I am unable to make a trip to see them now because of DH's health. DS is going to keep me updated on their progress. I told him to email some pictures of my new little one. Emma (16 months) is staying with her other grandmother while DS and DDIL are otherwise occupied. Please keep them in your prayers for healing and well being. Thanks.
