please pray for my baby...

The littlest member of our family is in need of prayers.

She fell off the bed today when I was cooking downstairs. I'll never forgive myself for this accident.

I called the dr's office and they asked me to come in. Doctor checked everything and seemed fine but she recommended a cat scan anyways. So she sent us to the ER. Went to ER; did cat scan; few hours later result came back and they told us that they found liquid on baby's brain. They said looked like from old injury; not from today's accident. Our baby never fell before today. So, doctor told us that the baby would need an MRI. She is now admitted to the hospital. We're here by her side.

I feel so guilty. The fall today was my fault. I still can't believe I made this stupid mistake. I'll never ever forgive myself for this. For all of you who have infants, please NEVER EVER leave your baby unattended. Don't make the same mistake I made today. I didn't realize my baby was capable of pushing herself off the bed.

Please, please, please pray for my baby so that everything will be okay. She is too yoing to go through all these. She just turned 11 weeks old today.
Please pray for her....

----UPDATE----

Wed, April 7, 10:14AM: Baby had to fast for 8 hours (but ended up more like 9 hours) since 4AM. They wanted to do an MRI at 8AM this morning but that didn't happen. They took the baby to have an Xray. Result won't be back until later this afternoon. As of now, MRI is scheduled to be around 2PM.

Wed, April 7, 2:50PM: 20 more mins to MRI.

Wed, April 7, 5:27PM: MRI was done. They had to sedate her. She is back in her room. Audrey just drank some milk. Now she is sleeping. We're waiting on the MRI result, which unfortunately won't be back until sometime tonight *sigh* Your prayers are very much appreciated.

i am sending you lots and lots of love and prayers.

don't think that this was your fault! if audrey had not fallen, they they would have never done the cat scan to find the liquid in her brain.
