Please keep Katherine Ann in your prayers.  She was born on March 30th and weighed 2 lbs, 14 oz at birth (she has lost some weight as all newborns tend to do).  The baby will be in NICU until the end of June, when is when her due date was.  She seems to be doing well, but things can change in a hurry.  One good thing is that our priest happened to be at the hospital when she was born and baptized her right away.  Luckily, she was in the hospital when it happened, and her brother "coincidentally" happened to be visiting her (he decided to do it at the last minute because he had time on his hands) when it happened.  She went in to use the bathroom and the baby decided it was time to be born.  His wife happened to be talking to him on his cell at the time and heard her yelling for him to come help her.  Thank goodness for that, because she got help right away.  Please keep Katherine and her parents (Clay and Stephanie) in your prayers.

It is not the task of Christianity to provide easy answers to every question, but to make us progressively aware of a mystery. God is not so much the object of our knowledge as the cause of our wonder.

I just received an update email from our priest.  Evidently, she has a hole in her heart and the doctors just started a drug regimen to close the hole, but one of the side effects is that it can restrict the blood flow to other vital organs.  Fr. said that the next 48-72 hours are critical, so please continue to keep her in your prayers.

Lord, have mercy!

It isn't uncommon to have a hole in the heart when a baby is premature, it is called a PDA. Many full term babies have a mild PDA at birth actually. My brothers were born close to 3 months premature and they both had it. There is a minor surgery that can correct this issue, but most often they like to wait and see if it corrects itself with the aid of medication. Just know that this is an issue that is quite common, and medical personnel know exactly how to deal with it.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

"Lord have mercy."

On May 5, 1965, my younger brother was born 6 weeks (+/) prematurely, at 4lbs. or so; he soon dropped to 2lbs., but was sent home to us in early June of that year.  Today, he is a healthy, happily married 45 year old.  He did have surgery a few times in his youth to correct potential problems, but everything worked out for him. 

He was an elected official for a time and would speak of his premature birth and his faith in connection with his opposition to abortion.
