It is 2:30am in Italy and I can’t sleep. It has nothing to do with the princess, who actually appears to be enjoying her first full night snooze of the trip. It is my sister Sonya who has me awake. It is 8:30am in Hong Kong where she lives. She is 33 weeks pregnant today. She has been in the hospital for the past week being monitored for high blood pressure, which she has been battling for the past few weeks. The meds do not seem to be working and Sonya has eclampsia now. Doctors have just told her today may have to be her little son’s delivery date.
Those of you who are regular readers of Addison’s blog are familiar with Auntie Son Son. She is actually our top commenter! And we had to cancel our big trip to Bali for Sonya and Ben’s wedding last June.
You have all been so supportive of our family over this past year. Now I am asking for your help for my sister and her family. It is the only thing I can think of to help. I firmly believe the collective power of positive thought, prayer and love will help Sonya, Ben and their little one get through this. I know two things for sure….the soon-to-be youngest member of the Yong clan is already showing he is a fighter just like his big cousin Addison, and he has a super strong mommy and daddy who can’t wait to meet him.
