New Arrival

A  baby girl was born last night. I don't know her name yet, but she entered the world a few weeks early. 

There was quite a scare in the past few days. The young mom was told there was a liklihood that the baby was not getting enough oxygen. This is obviously extremely bad news. Mom knows better than anyone the dangers of that. Her first child is had extreme disabilities and health problems, many of them from a similar issue. She is an excellent mom and takes care of her son with love and devotion. But again? It just wasn't fair.

Mom was scheduled for some emergent tests yesterday because of this. I wanted to call and ask about the tests but I didn't want to intrude.  Apparently after the tests the doctors decided it was time for this baby to join the world. 

I received a text last night from mom's sister that said :"baby born today. She's big and HEALTHY!"

I just started to cry. 


  1. Oh, jeez. How scary -- and close to home.

  2. Yes. Scary indeed. Patrick was born at 25.5 weeks so I know all about that "early" stuff. So glad to hear that things turned out ok.
