Comptroller Dan Hynes asked that I tell you about this. This is from his office::
Comptroller Dan Hynesâ€™ wife, Christina, was admitted to Northwestern Memorial Hospital last week after experiencing pre-term labor and remains there on bed rest.
The Hynesâ€™ are expecting twins in November, but given the recent symptoms of pre-term labor, the births could occur at any time during the next 14 weeks.
The Comptroller will be working from his Chicago office, but will need to remain close to home to be with his wife and to limit the risk of being out of town when the twins are born.
Hynes said he appreciates the well wishes his family has received, but asked that the familyâ€™s privacy be respected during this critical time.
All the best to Christina.
(I don’t usually open comments on things like this, and I see no reason to change that policy now. )
