    Ive been following along and love the care and dedication you show!

    Its been a week since your last post. I was wondering if your patient made it to her 24th week?

    Hi all, pt made it to just over 23 weeks and then had some cramping. Her cx was thinning, and she had an AFI of1 so was shipped to the nearest acute facility. They were able to stop the cramping and at this post, she continues to be undelivered, and now just about 24 weeks. I promise to update as soon as I get any new details...Thanks so much...

    Hi people. Here is an update. Was at a lecture earlier today and ran into this patients' OB, who told me she had signed out from the acute care facility and went home because she missed her family and was getting too depressed there. She is nearly 25 weeks, afebrile and hasn't gone into labor. So, when and if I hear the rest of the story, I will certainly pass it on....

    I work in a level three facility...

    I see early PROM babies do well, do poorly, or live but with problems.
    Just pray alot, treat PROM pt's conservatively, and leave it in God's hands.
