Our son Silas was born a week ago. We were really happy to finally meet the little guy who was wiggling around in Karren for so long, and we really love him. He's a sweetie.

Unfortunately, he's been in the NICU since 2 hours after birth with various problems, and he's having a hard time today. They transferred him to Lucile Packard at Stanford on Saturday, and we're really happy that he's there. He seems to be relatively stable and so far they haven't found any long-term problems, but he's really struggling to stabilize himself.

The ups and downs are hard, so we'd appreciate it if you'd keep him (and us) in your prayers.
