Caroline's first trip to the beach

Caroline's first trip to the beach

My sister Michele’s baby Caroline, who had surgery just a couple weeks ago, is doing just fine. She’s happy and gaining weight, two things that couldn’t be said a couple weeks ago.

In fact, she’s not quite two months old, but she’s on her first trip to the beach.

Caroline is A-OK

My sister’s baby, Caroline, had surgery Friday for a blockage in her stomach and came through with flying colors.

Brooke and I went to visit her at the hospital Saturday and got there just before they checked out. It was the first time I had seen the little girl. She’s a cutie … she’s got fingers long enough for two babies.

And to our surprise, my mom and dad were there, (I guess we should check our messages) and we got to see them, too.

Caroline needs your prayers

Caroline Rose

Caroline Rose

During my six-week editing fellowship in Reno, Nev., from which I returned on Monday, my sister and her husband had their first child, Caroline Rose. I’ve been back three days, but I haven’t seen her, yet.

My sister called the house today to tell me that they were taking Caroline for an ultrasound. She hadn’t been eating and wasn’t keeping what she could eat – Pedialyte – down. After one doctor told my sister she just didn’t know how to feed her baby, a second thought Caroline might have a blockage that wasn’t allowing food to leave the stomach (there’s a technical name for this, but I don’t know it).

They did find a blockage and Caroline will have surgery Friday morning. Recovery usually takes 2-3 days, so my sister and her husband will be at the hospital in Greenville for the next fews days.

The condition is supposedly common, and the surgery is supposed to be routine, but prayers couldn’t hurt.
