Baby stories...

I have been writing a lot about William, the last week not, because he was doing well, he was drinking and pooping, the only worry we had is that he was not gaining, but we thought that he needed some time after all he went through. We changed his milk formula into premature formula...But today it was not going good with him, he started to vomit, only drank 20 ml per feeding and for a child of 6 weeks, it is not enough.  And the colour of the vomit looked again like poo poo. The good thing is that he is still pooping good. But he didn´t look well, we took him to the clinic next door and they told us to put him on IV fluids again, they worked hard to get a cannula in. We don´t know what to do now, we really thought he would do better now. Please stand with us in prayer for this little man of 2,2 kg.
Then we got a new baby today, a little girl, she was born this morning at 7 am. at home in the village. But the placenta didn´t want to come out, so they went on a motor cycle the mother in the middle to the health centre. When they arrived at the health centre, they discovered that the mother had died on the way. So sad.... It is a little girl, weighing 3 kg. she will be staying with us for 2 months, in that time the family will take care of her.  
This is the new baby, I took her to the clinic next door, to let her check and they retied the cord, it was only tied once with a banana fiber. While they were doing that, I saw a new born baby laying in the corner of the room. The mother had just given birth and the placenta didn´t come out, they transported the mother to the main hospital. there was panic and they left the baby behind. The poor baby was screaming, I covered her and I hope the mother will be okay. I have seen again today, that giving birth is a risky business.
