About one hour ago, my newest grandson, as yet unnamed, was born. My daughter-in-law went into labor at 31 weeks last night and though they tried to keep her from contracting so the baby could develop more, a C section became necessary tonight. New baby's brother came at 34 weeks and is doing great now at 17 months--so here's hoping this new little one will be OK, too. It appears that he is fine, but they don't know the status of his lungs yet, always a concern for preemies. Please keep him and his parents in your prayers. His dad was my last baby and I am thrown into memories again of T's own babyhood. His eldest son looks so much like him--and hope this one is just as cute, as just as healthy.
What a week this has been! I have been one of the fortunate elders who has lived to see her children's children--and for this I am grateful.
