If Thoughts and Prayers Have Force —

— please, please add your erg of lift to bearing tiny Charlie Miller aloft. 

Danny’s son, Charlie was born very prematurely and has lost his twin brother, Oliver.  In his favor, Charlie was stable from the get-go and is in one of the best NICUs in the country, with a record of coaxing tiny preemies into healthy kids.  But, oh my God, he weighs only one pound, ten ounces.

Hold them up, hold them up/ Never do let them fall …

    That’s such terribly sad news. Danny and his family will be in my thoughts and prayers today.

    I’m so sorry to hear this. I’ll be sending those thought to Charlie, coaxing him to be a big strong kid!

    Hang in there, Danny!!! To G*d’s ears, may these prayers be heard.

    A friend recently gave birth 3 months premature, too. Allison weighed 2#, but she is gaining. They can hold her- she needs to be held on bare skin. The Mom pumps(surprisingly, her milk was right there when needed!) and the baby is fed via a tube w/her milk.

    I will mention it to my ~more G*dly~ friends– and surround Charlie w/our positive and sincere love from here.

    I’m sorry for the loss of Oliver- it never seems fair when we lose what we love, does it?
