He actually arrived a month early, on 11/26, a medically necessary induction. I kind of stopped participating in the DDC here midway thru the pregnancy, I just couldn't deal with it emotionally any more as every week seemed to bring us some new piece of bad news regarding the pregnancy and the baby - I didn't want to bring everyone down, but I couldn't pretend things were fine, either.

Our baby has kidney failure. We've just returned home from 3 weeks in the NICU at the University hospital 2 hours away from home and the rest of the family (husband, older kids). We'll go back in a few weeks for another 3-4 week stay as he starts dialysis, and he'll undergo a kidney transplant as soon as he's big enough (22 lbs). The statistics on kidney transplants are pretty good; dialysis on newborns, not so much... but we're just not thinking about that.

We're happy to be home, enjoying the time we have together.

I've been wondering how you were since you stopped posting here and I got your email about closing your store early. (I've ordered stuff from  you, but it's been a few years. ;-)


I'm glad to hear he arrived safely and pray he will continue to do well until he can have a transplant. Thanks for the update.

Now we are growing the family with chickens, ducks, and dairy goats.
