New Life

My brother's baby was born in the last hour. They are getting a lifestar helicopter to fly the baby from the small hospital that he was delivered in to Pittsburg Children's hospital. Doctors have no idea if he will make it. He's unable to breathe on his own. We don't know if he can swallow or what damage the fluid in his brain has caused.

It's tough to welcome someone so fragile into the world, with all of the unknowns. But I'm doing it anyways.

Welcome little baby boy. We're blessed to have you in this family.

I'm thinking of all of you, and hoping everything is going as well (or as non-terribly) as it can.

Knit something soothing--
