Need your prayers

Hi all (whoever it is out there that reads this!),

I know that I haven't posted on here in quite a while, but today I've come to ask your prayers.  An extremely close friend of mine and his wife are currently expecting their second child, and are right now at about 25 weeks.  On Friday evening, while my friend was out of town at a conference, his wife had to have an emergency appendectomy.  During the surgery, her uterus was nicked and her water broke, both of which, as one might suspect, have put the pregnancy at extreme risk.  Although she did not start having contractions right away, by Saturday morning, she did.  Right now, she is on I.V. medications to reduce/prevent contractions, and they are hoping that the amniotic sac will re-seal and fluids will begin reforming, but they won't know if that has happened until probably Tuesday.  At this point, she (the mother) is doing ok, but what will happen to the baby--and/or what the effects to the baby will be if he/she does make it--won't be known for a number of days at the very least, and probably longer.  My friend is terrified and preparing for the worst.

Your fervent prayers for all of them will be much appreciated.
