The Good Lord blessed the family with another great-niece. Matt’s niece, Sue, gave birth to Ashlynn Young Shaw on Monday, March 03, 2008. Ashlynn entered the world a month early weighing in at 5 pounds 8 ounces and a mere 17 ¾” long. I was told that Sue showed elevated levels of protein in her urine (toxemia) so she needed to deliver the baby early. Ashlynn remains in the hospital where she is being monitored closely. I’ve not been able to talk to Sue yet so I don’t have a lot of details on the baby’s condition but they are hopeful she will be able to go home soon. Sue and her family live in Colorado near Ryan's family. Please keep them in your prayers.
