Matt worked as a project manager at Yahoo!, while Liz was an executive at Disney. And their seemingly wonderful lives became even more blessed when, in 2007, Liz fell pregnant. However, the pregnancy had some difficulties that left Liz hospitalized.
Liz began to experience an extreme case of morning sickness, and doctors ordered her into bed rest. She spent three weeks at home before being transferred to hospital for a further two weeks’ rest. To keep their families and friends informed, Matt decided to post updates on his blog.
On March 24, 2008, doctors performed an emergency C-section. But after Liz spent just a brief moment with her baby, Madeline was whisked off to the neonatal intensive care unit. Matt posted on their blog, “Madeline is here! The proud parents will continue to update everyone on our beautiful baby. Look forward to even more good news.”
