New Grandson

Last night our new grandson was born, and even though he had 3 more weeks to go, the little rascal was 7lbs. 12oz. and 20 1/2 inches long. Our precious Abraham is having breathing difficulties (his lungs were not quite ready) and was taken to NICU where he is in very good hands.

I want to thank you all for your special words, thoughts and prayers while we kept him in " a little while longer", your support means more than I can say.

Off I go now to pick up my sister and my mother (great grandma) to pay a visit. I will be sharing photos soon.

Love to you all! xxoo

Sherri
I'm so thrilled that Abraham has arrived.
I will continue to pray now that his lungs will strengthen. He's as big as my full term babies were!

Oh Sherri - Congratulations. Abraham, what a fantastic name. I will be thinking about you and your family, especially this new little boy. Stay in touch with all of us.

It was awesome visiting little Abe in the NICU. I love it when babies blow bubbles with their spit....it's the only time in life when it's cute! And he is so cute!

Congrats Sherri! My son, who is now 21, was born 5 weeks early and spent time in the NICU... so I know a little how you all feel. I'm thinking of you and your family, hoping little Abraham will be heading home very soon!

Yea! You go grandma. I'm still praying for little Abraham, (he has a name now :)!

He's a good weight for being early, I'm just sure all will be well.

Blessings, Debbie
