    My niece went in for prenatal testing a couple of weeks ago. They discovered the baby has Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia, a hole in his diaphragm. Due date is some time in November. My niece will have to go to the children's hospital to give birth. A special team will be standing by. He will need emergency surgery.

    The survival rate for this condition hovers around 70%. Even so, the potential for life long problems is rather high.

    After the diagnosis, my niece and her husband had genetic counseling, and it was determined this isn't a result of genetics.

    My niece is a nurse. She had the Covid injection shortly before conceiving. There was no talking her out of it. Only God knows if it's related. They have three healthy children all under the age of 4. Pray for my niece's safety and her unborn baby boy.

    Dear Rain, I will pray for all of their family. So many now have these concerns. I pray the vaccine was not the cause.
    Please keep us posted.

    Thank you all for the prayers. We call him BBG for short. B (Baby) B (Boy) G (his last name). Heaven knows him by this name too because this is what we affectionately call him during our nightly novena :).

    The tests show that some of his vital organs are in the wrong place due to the hole in the diaphragm. No other problems were found and the condition can come with a myriad of health and developmental issues, so this is good news. My niece and nephew-in-law have toured the hospital where the birth and emergency surgery will be done. They are in good spirits and hopeful.

    Please don't stop praying for dear BBG and his family.
