Boston was born last Saturday at 30 weeks, weighing 2lbs 3 ounces. This is an excerpt from Kelly's blog. "I had my 30 week appointment yesterday and ended up in the hospital. My OBGYN and also a prenatal - neonatal specialist did not like the look of the untra sound, mainly the blood flow through the umblical cord and he is measuring 3 weeks small which of course is cause for concern. Had a steroid shot to help develop the babys lungs as well. We were both hooked up to monitors and hanging in there." They ended up delivering Boston via c-section due to the lack of blood he was receiving.
Boston will be in the NICU for quite a while. Please pray for Boston that God will continue to strengthen him and allow to go to home as soon as possible. Also pray for Charlie and Kelly that they will have the strength to endure this tough time.
