Hug your babies...

I saw a tweet today from Jenny at What the Blog? about prayers needed for little Owen, a 6-month old triplet in the hospital, who was unfortunately in a precarious state. Not knowing the backstory, I did some clicking through of links, and found his mom's blog (Three Times the Fun). The story of how Owen ended up in the hospital on life support starts here, but basically, he flipped over onto his tummy in his crib, and in just a matter of minutes stopped breathing. He was revived, but since Saturday things have gone downhill, and the family is just waiting for Owen to be legally declared braindead so they can donate his tissues & organs.

My muffin man has slept on his tummy from day 1. he's always had a really strong neck/back, so I wasn't worried, but I know that it could've been him just as easily as it ended up being Owen. Of course, it didn't help that I was holding a sleeping Moo while I was reading this - the tears, they were a-flowin..So basically, you never know what could happen with your babies. Hug your LOs tight and keep this family in your thoughts..

I'm linking Jenny's post about Owen too, as she's a mom of triplets less than 2 weeks younger than Owen&co, and has a unique point of view with regards to what this family has and is going through.
