I woke up this morning to a text from Erika letting me know that she was in labor (her hubby, Nick, was texting me from her phone) and about to deliver their precious daughter, Blythe. I didn't realize the due date was 8 weeks away. She was born this afternoon at 2:18 p.m. Weighing 3 lbs, 6oz., 16 inches long. She is in the NICU. And Erika had to undergo an emergency surgery afterward. Please pray for this precious family. I will post a photo just as soon as I can. This is a Jesus-loving family. Please pray that Blythe will thrive and be able to be in her mommy's arms very soon.
Today is Blythe's birthday. It is also my birthday. Little Blythe is absolutely the most fantastic birthday present ever!
an update as of 3/29/10:
Blythe is off oxygen, though she will remain in NICU for an undetermined amount of time. However, all things considered, she is doing well. Pray for this little sweetie!
Erika & sweet Blythe
