Small Miracles

On February 18th, my newest nephew made his debut. Unfortunately, he did so six weeks before he should have. However, aside from some breathing issues, he's actually doing fine. He weighed in at just over four pounds.

With all the marvels of modern medicine, there are still a few things that can't be done--creating synthesized amniotic fluid apparently being one of those things. It was safer for Baby Colton outside the womb than it was inside as the amount of amniotic fluid had dropped to dangerous levels.

But, as I said, he's doing as well as he possibly could be, all things considered. He was taken off the breathing machine last night, and he gets to go home when he reaches five pounds.

If you're the praying sort, please pray for my sister, brother-in-law, nephew Austyn (Colton's big brother), and most especially Colton.
