Yesterday girlfriend was referred to a specialist at the closest referral center for problems on an ultrasound. girlfriend didn't understand what the precise problem was. I offered to drive her and difficult child 1 to the appointment early this morning and help clarify information for them, and they accepted. girlfriend went into premature labor during the night and was sent by ambulance to the referral center. Her water has broken; she's only twenty-nine weeks along. Asking prayers for this little babe who is going to come into the world extremely early, and for girlfriend and difficult child 1.
