Update from Dorathea

After being in labor for over 24 hours, my granddaughter (Janet Adducchio’s daughter) gave birth to Wyatt Joseph Baird at 7:36 p.m. tonight. He was delivered by C-section because of complications that both he and my granddaughter had, but both are doing well (she’s tired!). Janet is higher than a kite. He weighed 7 lb 6 oz, was 21″ long, has blond curly hair and is beautiful. What baby isn’t?! I must admit that I, too, am a very happy great-grandma!

Janet is still undergoing chemo; despite the grim reality facing her, she hasn’t accepted death yet. We’re going up (Wilson Memorial Hospital in Sidney) tomorrow and we’ll be sure to get a four generation picture. Since I was the oldest generation at 24, you know that God has blessed our family greatly by this most recent arrival.

Thanks to everyone who has kept Janet and our family in your prayers. Prayer has kept me uplifted when at times I have felt sad or overwhelmed. I love each of you, my brothers and sisters in Christ.
