Just.... Pray.

Ever just had one of those weeks you can't catch a break, your breath, or a chance to recover?

I don't know what you all believe in, or really care to who you postmark your prayers. But whoever it may be... toss a thought towards my family sometime today.

Last Sunday found the eldest member of our family going on at last... and now the youngest member looks like she may be joining her.

My cousin gave birth to a beautiful baby girl last night, seemingly healthy and happy. Today? That little bundle is being flown to Duke's hospital with what appears to be a sizable hole in her heart. It doesn't look at all good.

As the snow falls deeper around the Prime Geek and I's nest... I wish there was something, anything I could do beyond sit and wait. So... please. Say a prayer, light a candle, or just wish really really hard. 'Cause she only just got here... and we're not ready to start missing her already.

I'm so sorry, Jenna. I'll be thinking of you and your little cousin, and all of your family. I'll imagine that everything they can do is good enough and everything goes smoothly and she comes out on this side of the fence.
