Sydney has a light case of jaundice. Dr. Rule decided to let Sydney spend a few hours on the "bili" blanket. She is resting peacefully - it's the longest stretch of time since her birth that she has been out of the arms of her family! Sydney's vitals are still good and Lindsey's blood pressure is much better. The family expressed many thanks today for all the calls, prayers, and love shown to them during this time.
I've had a couple people ask about sending cards. If you would like an address to send a card to, please email me at email@example.com
On January 7, 2010, at 5:11am, Sydney Grace Fodrie was born to Joel, Lindsey and big brother Rafe, weighing 4lb 4oz and measuring 15 1/2 inches long. She had a chromosomal abnormality called Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome. While she was not expected to live through childbirth, Sydney Grace defied the odds. She miraculously lived for twenty days, passing on January 27, 2010. Sydney Grace touched thousands of lives and it is our hope through this blog, she will continue to do so.
.......TO LIVE WITH THE CONSCIOUS KNOWLEDGE OF THE SHADOW OF UNCERTAINTY, WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THAT DISASTER OR TRAGEDY COULD STRIKE AT ANY TIME; TO BE AFRAID AND TO KNOW AND ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR FEAR, AND STILL TO LIVE CREATIVELY AND WITH UNSTINTING LOVE: THAT IS TO LIVE WITH GRACE. PETER HENRY ABRAHAMS
