Hi all,

Please forgive the mass e-mailing, but it’s the quickest and most efficient way that we know of to get the word out.

Aaron Nelson Quick was born the day before Thanksgiving, on Wednesday, November 27, 2002. He arrived with quite a bit of fanfare, as it’s still 4 months before his due date. After a week and a half of preterm contractions, Kathleen was airlifted from Lakeport, CA to California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco. Ten minutes after arriving in the birthing room, little Aaron was born.

And he is little! A preemie of preemies at 24 and 3/7 weeks gestational age, he’s only 1 pound, 8.5 ounces, and is 12.1 inches long. He is in stable condition, but he has a long road ahead of him before he can come home with us. The only thing we’re sure of at this point is that if he survives, we’re going to have a lot of ups and downs along the way. Kathleen and I unashamedly ask for your prayers on Aaron’s behalf, and for us as well, that we can all remain strong, vigilant and optimistic. Already, we want to thank our brothers and sisters at Grace Evangelical Free Church in Kelseyville for their wonderful love, prayers and support.

We promise not to bug you with all the day-to-day goings on, unless you specifically ask us to put you on our “bug me” e-mail list.

But, we just HAD to send you the attached picture that we took last night of Aaron with daddy...

Thank you again for your love and support.

Kevin, Kathleen & Aaron Quick!
