Jen Fulwiler of Conversion Diary and “Minor Revisions” fame had her sweet baby boy last night! Her entire pregnancy has been an enormous ordeal — first a pulmonary embolism landed her in the hospital with lungs so clogged with blood clots, the doctors said she ought to be dead. Then she had to endure a horrible planned procedure which . . . I don’t even know what to say. I feel like that lady who had her baby in a tree during the Mozambique flooding would feel sorry for her.
So the baby was born! But Jen says:
Unfortunately, he has some breathing problems (unrelated to my medical issues) that mean that he requires NICU care, and is now being transferred to a NICU at a different hospital with better facilities. Even more unfortunately, I have to stay here at the delivery hospital until we get my blood thinners under control. I haven’t even seen him that much since he’s been born.
Hallie keeps sending me encouraging texts telling me I’m being so strong. I’ve been meaning to follow up and ask her for some examples of what “not being strong at all” would look like. Because I’m pretty sure that that’s what I’m actually doing.
Needless to say, this is a stressful situation for all involved, so we appreciate any prayers you can offer. Thanks again for all your wonderful support.

Please pray for quick healing for both of them, and for a speedy reunion!
