I'm off later to a baby shower - at least I hope there is still a shower since apparently the mom-to-be has been sick (stomach flu and sore throat!).
She has had one of the worst pregnancies (and it's only her first baby) - I can relate to the throwing up and trips to the hospital for IV fluids (I had the same thing with my pregnancies) but I never had kidney stones and migraines like she's had - and turns out that was only the beginning.
About 2 months ago they found out their little baby boy has a heart defect and will need surgery about a week after he is born! So in two weeks she is heading to San Diego where she will stay until she has the baby and then he'll undergo surgery.
I just can't imagine what this must be like for them - her name is Carly and if you think about her, please say a prayer for her, her hubby and their little guy - we are all praying for them here.
She knew I was making her a quilt and told me it is one of the only things she is taking to San Diego for him - so I had to make sure I finished it by today!
And I did - and am very excited with how it turned out - can't wait until their ordeal is over and they get to come home with the little guy - I'll be sure to snap some pictures of him too.
