So, I know some people have been wondering about MistyMama... I got the OK from her to update you guys a bit. She had baby Gavin but he had some problems at birth and had to stay in the NICU. He was released but recently started having seizures every time he woke up and his head was swelling. They are back at the NICU at Children's Hospital where they seem to have found a medication to stop the seizures but it makes him very sleeping so he isn't feeding. As you can imagine this is incredibly difficult for all of them, they are trying to keep things as normal as possible for their older son while still being with Gavin as much as possible. Please send prayers or positive thoughts their way. I will keep you guys posted if I hear any updates from her.
