Louisiana writes in her journal; she is worried about her friend, Jenna Aurora Doucet, in Alaska, who nearly hemhorraged to death while giving birth to her second child, another boy. She's also concerned about the doctor's report about her son, Johnny, who has muscular dystrophy; she voices her concerns/worries here.

Weds., October 10, 2007, Nashville, Tn., 10:38 a.m., D.S.T.~

Dear Journal~

Louisiana here. I am trying not to cry, but the tears threaten to spill.

I am thinking of my friends in Alaska, Michael Doucet and his wife, Jenna Aurora, who just became parents for the second time--another boy. Jenna fell a few days ago, it caused her to deliver earlier than expected. He was born a month premature; he weighed under four pounds, is very tiny, according to Michael. He's now safely in the NICU, where the nurses and doctors there can monitor him.

They think once his lungs develop  more, get stronger, he'll be okay, but they're not so sure about Jenna. See, when Jenna was giving birth to Kenai Remington (that's the baby's name), she started hemhorraging from everywhere, and went into a state of shock. She immediately had to be rushed to surgery, where doctors performed an emergency hysterectomy.

Jenna survived the surgery (and the hemhorrage), which is nothing short of a miracle, but is still in critical (but improving) condition. It will be a little while before she is out of the woods. We will have to pray extra hard for her at church, pray that she makes it. We will also have to keep little Kenai in our prayers, pray he survives as well.

As for news here on the homefront, we are suffering as well. Johnny is not doing well. His lungs have gotten worse, and he has to be on supplimental oxygen all the time now. Doctors think that by the end of the year comes, he will have to have a tracheostomy and/or breathe with the assistance of a ventilator. It's very discouraging. Johnny's been through so much these past few weeks, now he gets more bad news dumped on top of him.

It's a sign that his MD has gotten worse. I am getting scared at what the future may bring. We are afraid that the end may be approaching, and right now I am not ready to lose my son! I love him too much!

Ronee' is doing okay, she's doing better than Johnny, but will be facing surgery in January of 2008; she is having the joints in her hands replaced because the JRA has eaten up her joints, and her hands are giving her no end of trouble.

Also, she has to go back on her crutches to take the pressure off her hands from leaning too much on her canes. It's a catch-22 type of situation, and Ronee' is trying to handle it as best as she could.

Needless to say, the mood around Chateau Sandusky has not been very bright. We are all feeling down about the news concerning Johnny, and now with this with Jenna--I don't know how much more in the way of bad news that we can possibly take! We need some good news around here!!

The babies inside my belly continue to kick me. Just earlier this morning, I was eating, and I threw up because the one (I think it was Ian) kicked me hard right in the gut; made me lose my breakfast. Ever since I have been dining on crackers and drinking Coke Cola, anything to try to quell the nausea that still remains.

Bill is outside, puttering around in the yard, trying to get the flower beds ready for winter. His neighbor, Pete, is helping; since that is usually my job and I am grounded now, Bill has to do it--on top of his normal, every day jobs. He is one very busy man of late; it's no wonder he sleeps as much as fifteen hours on his days off! He needs all the sleep he can possibly get!!

Well, the phone is ringing. Maybe it's Michael calling to tell me a Jenna update. Hopefully if it is him, the news will be better. Lord, I can only hope!

Until later, this is Louisiana signing off! God bless!

~Love, your friend, Louie May. :(
