Marion Bethel Harper was born 9/30/2016 at 8:57 pm. Her mom, Elaine, had been in the hospital for the week before for severe preeclampsia, or HELLP syndrome, which came on suddenly. Luckily things calmed down enough that Marion had a chance to grow her lungs a bit more. She came 11 weeks early, and will most likely spend all that time in the NICU at West Penn Hospital in Pittsburgh. But she should be home by her original due date of 12/12.
