It's weird because it's possible to become mentally and emotionally involved in the lives of people, real people with real lives, that you have never met, never laid eyes on, and may not even know where in the world they live. But they become important to you all the same.
For months I've been following the blog of a lady who calls herself MckMama as she writes about her husband Prince Charming and her children Big Mac, MckNugget, Small Fry, and MckMuffin.
I began following her blog long before MckMuffin (a.k.a. Stellan) was born when she and hundreds of other bloggers were praying for a miracle for MckMuffin. See, before he was born, doctors said he would never survive the womb due to fatal heart problems.
Not only did MckMuffin survive the womb, he was born with no signs of a heart condition.
Sadly, MckMuffin is back in the hospital and is not doing well. I believe he is about 5 months old now.
Please say a prayer for this sweet baby and his family. Only God knows what the future holds for them...
