I just heard this morning that Michelle did deliver the baby at 25 weeks due to preeclamspia last night - this was from a friend of their family, it hasn't made the news yet.

I don't have more details but was asked to pray for Michelle and their baby girl [not sure what either of their health status is right now], so I just wanted to post here to ask people to pray for them.

This could also be wrong since I have no corroboration, but I figured prayers certainly can't hurt either way.

I sure hope they are both OK.

I just posted an update on this with the info I have. It sounds like baby is doing as "well as can be expected". I don't really know much about Michelle. I hope they are all ok. It's so scary. I don't know what the risks are with a 25 weeker. :(

I had preeclampsia and it was very frightening. I also bled nearly every day of my pregnancy but delivered a full term, healthy boy. I now have gallstones so I am wondering which was the major risk, gallstones or the preeclampsia. I do not believe they would have delivered that baby so soon if they could have controlled her blood pressure.
