Hello, dear internet friends.
I want to ask your prayers and/or good thoughts (whatever it is that you do...) for my niece, Jane, her husband, Chris, and their newborn little boy. The baby was born last night and is now in the neonatal intensive care unit at the University of Virginia Medical School hospital. He will need heart surgery.
My brother says that it is possible that the baby can go home to build his strength up for a while before the surgery but they're not sure yet.
My deep gratitude to you all for your caring and concern.
