Reports from her grandfather, Jeffrey, my one and only brother, showcase his classic wit:
"She lost a little weight as expected but is also getting fluids through an umbilical catheter so there is no cause for worry that she will become dehydrated. She is peeing and we will of course alert the media when she has a poop."
And this, regarding his own post-birth status with his equally tiny dog at home in North Carolina, where he provides care to his community as a family physician:
"Feather is good company and I have a freezer full of homemade soup. We will be fine; this is what families do."
Welcome little Vivian! We are thrilled you are here!
