Dear Friends and Family ~
As most of you already know, our sons were born via emergency cesarean section on Friday, October 19. They were premature at just 31 weeks but are doing quite well. Ace was born at 9:33 pm weighing 3 pounds 11 ounces, and Nate was born crying at 9:34 pm weighing 4 pounds 7 ounces.
Both boys were airlifted to Seattle at 1:30 am on Saturday, October 20 to receive the special care that they need at this time and are there now.
I had a second surgery on Sunday, October 21 due to some problem with the original surgery and was finally able to leave the hospital yesterday. I will be meeting the boys for the first time in just a few hours.
We are on our way to Seattle now and will be there for an unknown amount of time. We hope to be able to keep friends and family updated via our website(s). If you have not been there, Skip has posted pictures and info at our family site: http://www.cronck.com This Blog has not been updated much yet, but in the coming days, I hope to get back to posting more about all that has happened.
Both sites have an option to “subscribe” to them via email. At http://www.cronck.com, you will see a “subscribe” link at the top of the page. You can subscribe to receive an email when Skip posts pictures there. On this Blog, there is a box in the right-hand column that you can enter your email into to get updates sent to your inbox when they are posted.
We’ve been asked what we need or how people can help, and at this time, our dear friend Lindsay is coordinating those efforts for us. She can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re sorry we can’t update everyone individually at this time, but hope that our web sites will help keep everyone informed of what is going on. We can’t say thank you enough for the outpouring of love and support we’ve received from everyone.
There are several pictures already at http://www.cronck.com — I hope you enjoy them.
