Peter John Uniacke unexpectedly entered this world three weeks early and was welcomed lovingly by his mom Beth and dad Mike. At 34 weeks, Beth had an ultrasound that revealed a cyst in his abdomen, but at that point it was unclear exactly where this was located or its impact on Peter. He had an adventurous first day of life, including meeting his older sister Charlie but something wasn’t quite right. Late Sunday night he was transferred to Nationwide Children’s Hospital emergently to be assessed by the surgery team there. Peter was taken to the operating room where it was discovered that he had atresia of his small intestine and needed that part removed. He will need prolonged hospitalization and extensive time for recovery. He will also face a second surgery in a few months. Peter’s family is facing an emotionally and financially trying time instead of the joy of bringing their son home. They will need the support of their community of family and friends, many of whom are hundreds of miles away. Please consider joining us as we move forward together on this journey of love and healing for baby Peter.
