Dearest Little Grandson

This is dedicated to my grandson Floyd, JR.

We were happy and couldn't wait for your life to begin,
Then your mom got sick, panic and fear set in.
You were born too early and that scared us all,
With your transparent skin and you were oh so small.
Feeling the power and strength from God hands from above,
We know you will pull through with our prayers and our love.
Soon you will be home safe at your parent’s side,
We are waiting very patiently for that day to arrive.
Your precious little life started out fragile and rough,
But it will be fine little grandson we know you are tough.
We love you dear grandson with all of our hearts,
Now be strong little grandson as your new life starts.

Amy, my daughter, had gotten sick during her pregnancy. She had high blood pressure, Preeclampsia. The day they transported her from one hospital to the other hit me hard as the ambulance passed us. That was my baby in there. She was in the hospital almost a week and delivered the day she turned 7 months. Floyd (her husband), his mom, Lance (Amy's dad and I) stayed at the hospital round the clock. Lance and I went home to try and get some sleep after a couple days. It was an hour ride. We were home 1/2 before we got called back up to the hospital. One week we will never forget.
