A bit of an update
For my few regular readers, I just wanted to say that I've not posted much here lately because of some family problems. My daughter-in-law is expecting a baby, as most of you know, but she has been having pre-term contractions almost continually for the past few weeks. She has been in and out of the hospital for this, and she was in the hospital last night. The doctors gave her some IV fluids because she is dehydrated and has low amniotic fluid in spite of her drinking a minimum of 80 oz. of fluids daily. She is just at 34 weeks, so if the baby came early, there would be no overt danger, but it's not advisable. This has been a concern lately, of course, so I've not had any good ideas for this blog. I'll come up with something soon to write about, but for now I just wanted to apprise my regular readers of the reason for my 'absence.'
