Words, Words, Words from Carl Sandburg

"A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on."
Carl Sandburg

Grady Willis McCarthy, my new nephew, is doing so well! He was born Monday, October 19, at 33.5 weeks, but Thursday, the doctors removed his nasal canula because he's breathing so well. He's even starting to breastfeed a bit!

Many thanks to all of you who have lifted Grady and my sister up in prayer this week. Lisa asked me to share her thanks as well. She has been so at peace all week when she would ordinarily have been freaking out. She credits all the wonderful prayers for her calm because it's truly a miracle! Please continue to hold them in your prayers as Lisa recovers from her c-section and Grady continues to grow.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
