root, root, root for the triplets

Our dear friends Ron and Jen are expecting fraternal triplets -- all boys. Jen has spent every day of the past four weeks at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston due to preeclampsia. When we last spoke, which was unfortunately over a week ago, her protein count wasn't where it needed to be, but other factors were normal. This Wednesday will mark Week 28 of the pregnancy, which is a milestone under the circumstances. As of this writing, my wife and I don't yet know if Jen has given birth, but I have a feeling it could happen some time this week. Why?

Ron is a die-hard Yankees fan, and I told him over the phone a few weeks ago his sons won't enter the world until they reach .500, which has been a strangely difficult task for them this season. As of this writing, the Yankees are 18-19 and are in the midst of a seven-game winning streak. (Eagle-eyed readers would have noted that Ron lives in the headquarters of Red Sox Nation.) Needless to say, this recent streak has made me nervous about my prescient abilities.

Whenever the birth, we pray father, mother, and children will leave this ordeal healthy and happy.

UPDATE: Today marks Day 38 of Jen's hospital stay. The doctor's are optimistic that she will give birth around 30 weeks. Also, Ron has found employment in the Boston area at an office that happens to be close to where they will be living for a while.
