more...

Matt told me today that a woman from our church had her baby on Monday. He said it in a way that I had to ask, "Is this more bad news?" The baby was only 4lb 11oz and was sent home Tuesday night. When they went in this morning to check on him, he wasn't breathing. The family is, of course, devastated. We don't know a lot of details about why he was so little or why the doctors released him, but I'm sure we'll find out more in the weeks to come. She goes to the same pediatricians my sister and I both go to and I feel very confident in their professional judgement. They would never knowingly send a sick baby home, so I am sure they felt that he was healthy. Still, it is sad...

I am seriously considering not having anymore children after all of this in such a short amount of time. Seriously.

And that is why I can't get up the nerve to have any in the first place. :S
