Jodie Guthrie Age 30 and Baby Trace
PITTSBURGH, PA - A man whose pregnant fiancee was struck and killed by a van in a Pittsburgh parking lot says their son was born by emergency cesarean section and doctors are evaluating whether he was harmed by a lack of oxygen.
George Weatherwalk told reporters Thursday that the baby's name is Trace Joseph Weatherwalk. The boy's vital signs were strong, but he could not breathe on his own at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.
Trace's mother, 30-year-old Jodie Guthrie, was sitting outside a drugstore Wednesday afternoon when an elderly driver trying to park jumped a curb and pinned her against the wall, police said.
"Whenever she got struck by the car, the lack of oxygen that she lost, the baby also lost," George Weatherwalk said. "So they're saying they don't know whether anything is wrong with his brain."
Weatherwalk said doctors are keeping the boy's body temperature low in hopes of preventing or limiting any brain damage.
Lord, eternal rest grant unto Jodie Guthrie and all those who have died over the Thanksgiving holiday. Grant Baby Trace complete healing and a normal recovery. We ask this with complete trust in your providential care and merciful love. Amen
Jesus we trust in you!

To you alone, Most High, do they belong, and no mortal lips are worthy to pronounce Your Name.
Praised be You my Lord with all Your creatures,

And he is beautiful and radiant with great splendor, of You Most High, he bears your likeness.
Praised be You, my Lord, through Sister Moon and the Stars, in the heavens you have made them bright, precious and fair.
Praised be You, my Lord, through Brothers Wind and Air, and fair and stormy, all weather's moods, by which You cherish all that You have made.
Praised be You my Lord through Sister Water,
so useful, humble, precious and pure.
Praised be You my Lord through Brother Fire,
through whom You light the night and he is beautiful and playful and robust and strong.
Praised be You my Lord through our Sister,
Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us,
producing varied fruits with colored flowers and herbs.
Praise be You my Lord through those who grant pardon for love of You and bear sickness and trial.
Blessed are those who endure in peace, by You Most High, they will be crowned.
Praised be You, my Lord through Sister Death,
from whom no one living can escape. Woe to those who die in mortal sin! Blessed are they She finds doing Your Will.
No second death can do them harm. Praise and bless my Lord and give Him thanks, and serve Him with great humility."
