A week ago, my brother Adrian and his wife Lia had a baby born at less than 26 weeks. She weighed 1lb. 8 oz. Maria was received as a child of God by Holy Baptism not long after she was born.
So far things have gone as well as can be expected. This afternoon at 1:30, Maria will have surgery to take care of an air pocket in her right lung. The doctors have been watching it closely and after a CT scan yesterday, decided to go in.
You can read more about Maria and the situation on her CaringBridge site:
I would just like to ask for your prayers for this little one.
Kyrie eleison – Lord, have mercy
