I have the sweetest little niece that I could ever imagine. Her name is Natalie, and I wish I could snuggle her every day. I got to go down a few weeks ago to meet her for the first time, and do her newborn pictures. She is so tiny, and so perfect. As I type this, Natalie is undergoing open heart surgery to fix 3 major defects in her heart. This came as a huge shock to everyone, as just a week ago, no one knew. Jenna, Natalie’s mom, brought her in to the Dr. because something just didn’t seem right. We are all so happy that she followed her gut and brought her in, because they found a heart murmur and told them to get to Omaha as fast as they could, to prepare for open heart surgery. The details are all a blur right now, as she is just too tiny to even comprehend all that has happened. She is in a wonderful hospital, with amazing parents who love her more than words can describe. Please lift baby Natalie up in prayer through the coming weeks as she recovers. No baby, no family should have to endure this. She is a strong little fighter.
